“Hi I’m Lucy, formally a flight attendant for easyJet. I was fortunate enough to pitch my business idea to Sir Stelios during a flight he boarded to London.
He invited me to present my idea at the ‘easy start-up entrepreneurs 2017 awards.’
I was one of five award winners!
This lead to me making my pet care hobby and dream of running my own business a reality. The business got off to a great start, I hired more and more staff and have been able to branch out into a wider area.
With additional funding from easy we are now preparing to roll out our successful and proven model across the UK. This starts with the search for like-minded individuals to join our franchise on our exciting journey with the backing of the easy brand.”
Ditch the commute to work and enjoy the flexibility and freedom of working from home!

Supported by the ‘easy’ brand, running your own business is no longer just a dream. And with the guidance, advice and know-how of Lucy Platt, Founder of easyDogwalker, we can make your dream a reality!
Lucy started her own business after pitching the idea to Sir Stelios on-board a flight from Monaco to London. As a result, she won the ‘easy start-up entrepreneurs’ prize and decided to make her hobby and dream a reality.
The business got off to a great start. Lucy hired more and more staff and was able to expand into a wider area, increasing her presence in this growing market and even buy a house of her own as a result of the success of her business. Recognising this, she decided it was time to roll out her proven business model across the UK.

‘’I wanted to set up a service where dog lovers could reach out to owners and offer a trusting, personal and professional service as people are leading such busy lives these days and it seems a shame for dogs to be left at home all day. Dog walking is an affordable alternative to day care but we can also offer pet sitting too. I absolutely love the flexibility of being my own boss, working from home and always being surrounded by dogs, enjoying the fresh air and countryside too. I can finally enjoy a rewarding job where the harder I work, the more money I make. I get so much satisfaction and gratitude from the dogs, I meet so many lovely people too. It’s a great job for keeping you fit and healthy and has lots of other benefits’’
