As Christmas approaches and the start of a new year is on the horizon I’ve been taking a look back on the last 12 months and everything that’s happened.
I could easily talk about COVID and the issues that came with it, but I prefer to look at the positives because 2020 is the year that K9 Nation really came to life.
I started the year as a team of 1 (plus Buddy of course) with a very basic version of an app and website, and a plan to try and take this idea to the next level. I knew it was ‘go hard or go home’ and I decided I’d kick myself if I didn’t at least try to take this forward.
Fast forward to March, the country has just entered its first lockdown and I found myself doing virtual pitch events to a load of investors (Think Dragons Den style). 3 months later and I’m working with an amazing team of people that believe in K9 Nation just as much as I do, share the values upon which I founded K9 Nation, and are just as excited about what we can create together in the future.
From the success of the K9 Clean-up campaign, where we raised money to support The Dogs Trust and helped clean up our beautiful country, to the relaunch of the new version of the app, it’s certainly been a busy few months.
K9 Nation 2021
As a newly formed team we are so excited to head into 2021 knowing everything that we have planned. I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few highlights of what’s to come….
We are currently working on building our business portal, which will allow our growing dog owner community to discover a whole range of dog products and services that have registered to appear in the app.
We will be launching our community member discounts and benefits, to give you great savings across a range of products and services, for you and your dogs.
We are going to revamp the ‘Walks’ section of the app to make this more dynamic and interactive, and let you know what dog friendly businesses or services are near to those walks, should you fancy stopping for a bite to eat or a drink after your adventure.
In February next year we will be going out for another round of funding so we can fulfil our exciting plans and everyone will get the chance to own a piece of K9 Nation, helping us shape it’s future.
Easter will see us relaunch the K9 Clean-up campaign and we’ll be asking all dog owners to do their part in cleaning up this beautiful nation again.
As a community, you will be able to vote on which feature we build next, after all, this is your Nation and we want to listen to what you want to see.
Plus much much more which we can’t quite tell you about just yet ….. 🤐
Buddy and I, and the whole K9 Nation Pack, are so excited that you are on this journey with us and we can’t wait to get to watch the community grow, with you alongside us.
I also just want to take the chance to say a massive thank you to the newly formed team who, despite Coronavirus and all the challenges it has brought, have come together to get K9 Nation to where it is today and I can’t wait to continue working with you in the New Year.
