Small Dog Realty
Like my life is busy enough with PT,and training for the big Ridge Run from hell. I did some real soul searching (talk radio in my car). I love selling houses, meeting people, connecting new people with friends,clients,restaurants,hiking trails and of course dog trails and parks. I've always had a love of dogs and I came up with an idea: it's Small Dog Realty" and with every sale I donate 5% of my net commissions to local animal shelters. That's the small part I can do to give back to my community and I'm hoping others will follow their passion. I get so much more out of things knowing that I am helping.
I will be a sponser of both the Dog Ball in Bozeman and the Fur Ball in Livingston-Yesterday I did a Costco run for dog, cat and puppy food for the Dillon Shelter. I found someone going that direction that is more than happy to drop off food. Why Costco? Because that is what they use. Even if we feed the animals just for a few weeks with that it helps.
So ,the new name... Two reasons: #1. I have always had big labs-I think about 13 in total-never really considered a small dog-why would I... Well we adopted my stepdaughters' small dog (she is in school and couldn't have her) I love her!! Not only can she compete with the big dogs,she can do more-just trying to prove herself I guess. And she is so very cute!!! My attitude about small dogs has changed!
Reason #2. I have had several people call me and tell me they tried selling or buying their home from one of these big dog companies and didn't like the experience. I'm not competing with the big dog companies just as (for example)Bozeman Running Company isn't competing with a national shoe company. I buy my shoes at the BRC because of the personal service I get and to help support a wonderful small business in my community.
Even if you don't need to buy or sell, maybe you can also give back to your community!
