Contented Tails makes for contented pet owners

Councillor Maureen Flood presents Lucy with the cheque

A new animal boarding business in Andover means that pet owners can leave their four-legged friends in good company while they are at work, on holiday or away from home.

Lucy Willis launched Contented Tails earlier this year to offer dog boarding, walking and home visits to pet owners who require assistance.

Anna ward member, Councillor Maureen Flood, presented Lucy with Test Valley Borough Council’s £750 Business Incentive Grant and said “I’d like to congratulate Lucy on successfully launching Contented Tails. She has a lovely home where pets have company and can play with other dogs and toys. Lucy is passionate about pets and is building up a strong network of clients.

Lucy added “I love working with animals and ensuring that all their needs are met. I’m pleased that I’ve been able to turn my passion into a business and help people who can’t be with their pets all the time. I’d urge people to visit my website at for more details.”

The Council’s Business Incentive Grants are available to anyone looking to set up their own business in Test Valley. Anyone who successfully applies for the grant will receive a grant of £750 if their business is still going strong six months later.
