A pet sitting company has received a business boost from TV Dragons Den star Theo Paphitis.

Last week Nina Cole, owner of Nina’s Nannies for Pets in Hemel Hempstead, tweeted Theo about her pet sitting business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ – an initiative set up by Theo that runs weekly.

Theo retweeted Nina’s message to his 260,000 followers and as a result, the business has reached more than 7,000 followers and are also profiled on a new website which that is exclusive to Small Business Sunday winners.

Nina said that she hoped the recognition would help her to promote animal welfare and to encourage more people to adopt their pets, rather than buy.

This is also why they now offer discounts to people who have re-homed their pets, along with senior citizens who would rather use a pet sitting service. Nina and her business partner Doug Cole, said how important it is to have support from Theo and said they were ‘over the moon’, to be recognised for their hard work.

The couple are also looking for people to join their team. Call Nina on 07765836846, or visit
