Keevil is a beautiful, peaceful village located in Wiltshire. With fields upon fields of open farmland, there are limited dog walking options for owners who wish for a more secure location to give their dog free rein. Following the 2020 lockdown, the canine crime rate has risen significantly, enhancing the need for secure dog walking alternatives.
The owners of the dog paddock approached us to help them make their idea a reality. The key to the success of the business was to automate the booking through a well designed website where visitors could self-serve and enjoy worry-free dog walks time and time again.
The platform to build and host the website was important in order to keep the maintenance and everyday running of the business as smooth and as simple as possible. With Squarespace Scheduling, we were able to create a range of dog walking packages to suit all types of visitors. These services could be reserved and paid for via the website; on desktop, tablet or mobile. Regular customers can even book recurring visits which reserves the same times each week and takes the stress out of the ordering process. The system is set up to automatically email the customer a reminder the day before their event takes place.
Along with the booking functionality, we also created a new business email and Google Calendar which listens to their website and adds field reservations as soon as they’re booked. The calendar can be accessed via the Squarespace Admin Panel or via the Google Calendar App on mobile. Notifications can be switched on or off.
