My Doggy Travel
Following a bad experience booking a holiday with her dog, German-born University of Huddersfield graduate, Maike Reiners, set up My Doggy Travel when she saw a gap in the market for a one-stop-shop travel website for dog-friendly holidays.
Juggling a full-time job in the UK, Maike is organically growing the online travel agent business in her spare time. In just four months of trading she became a member of AWIN, an affiliate network programme, so connecting her with holiday providers such as Holiday Cottages, Best Western and Travelodge. Maike can now advertise and recommend their holidays on her site.
With competitive holiday deals, reviews, and tips and advice on travelling with dogs, Maike’s long term vision is for My Doggy Travel to become THE holiday website for dog owners with an international reach.
Maike receives help from the Enterprise Team and has full access to business events, office space and meeting rooms, as well as assistance to set up her business and ongoing branding and marketing support.
