The Beagle Bio -- LISA BATTEN: All Dogs Aboard
(EDITOR’S NOTE: As The Beagle closes in on its first full year, we want to thank those businesses who helped launch our little dogpatch. In the coming issues, we will feature mini-biographies from our local business owners and “Charter” Advertising partners.)
1. Why and/or how did you start this business?
I’ve always had a love for dogs. They have been in my life for as long as I can remember. Currently, I have seven furry friends in my home, five of which are mine.
2. What are your personal and professional ethics that guide your success? It’s always been important to me to do my best and with dogs. Things have always just come naturally. It’s unconditional!
3. Besides making money, what are the goals of your business? My goals are just to continue. To improve myself and my knowledge of all dogs.
4. How much are your family members involved in your business? Why? My family members are very involved. It takes a village to raise a child and is no different when it comes to dogs. The more exposure the dogs have to more people and other dogs, the better.
5. What are your short-term and long-term goals? My short-term goals are to go to school to earn a degree in dog training. I really want to do right by the dogs that I am taking care of and anything I can do to improve that is great.
6. How important are your employees/team members? Without my team and family we would not be what we are today. We all love these dogs as if they were ours. We are an effective team for them.
