Meet The Team
Robin is the owner and founder of Dog Days Glasgow. After seeing a gap in the market she opened Dog Days in November 2015 and has never looked back. Robin has grown up with dogs and is now mummy to her beautiful Labrador Flo, who was the inspiration behind the brand. She wanted the best possible facility to leave her dog with trained but loving staff and a secure and comfortable environment, so she came up with the Dog Days concept. To ensure owners received the best possible care for their dogs she put herself through dog psychology courses, canine first aid and created a bespoke daycare manual for her daycare team. Robin is also the founder of The Dog Lover Show which has become an annual event at Glasgow’s SEC. “I love dogs and can see no better way to spend my day. Dogs have a huge place in all our hearts and they have become family members. I wanted owners to feel comfortable leaving their dogs in our care and the knowledge that our staff are trained and our facility is licenced by Glasgow City Council. After such wonderful feedback from owners and the response from their dogs the brand has grown at a rapid rate and we cannot wait to see what the future holds.”
