Pongy pooches posed a problem.
Rebecca, 13, loved snuggling up to her very best friends. The only problem was, they were pongy pooches.
After researching the issue she found activated charcoal and parsley could help with gas and breath. Rebecca thought this would be a great opportunity to solve an issue faced by many pet owners. She began looking into ways she could incorporate the ingredients into a doggie treat her 4 legged friends would love.
Dog.a.licious Dog Biscuits was born in 2017, and has grown into a very successful online and market stall business.
Since its beginning Dog.a.licious has expanded its range, developed a logo, and launched a website with an online store. Rebecca has attended more than 10 community markets and continues to actively promote her product.
NEED IS THE MOTHER OF ALL INVENTION
With support from her family (whom she now employs) Rebecca is very active at markets around Perth and can generate revenue between $250-$450 per market!
She has learned, applied, and tweaked marketing strategies, manages an active business social media page and is now considered an established business with ongoing sales and regular clientele.
Love from our teachers
"The program brought small business and financial management to the forefront of our students minds. It really opened their eyes to the ‘real world’ and that money does not just magically appear. It put things into perspective and their initiatives displayed at the Market stall day really showed the learning they gained from the program.
The Year 5 students are already talking about it!"
Melanie Buller, Principal SHHP 2019
"I was absolutely blown away by how successful the night was. The students did an amazing job and I am so proud of them. I haven’t done the final count, but I won’t be surprised if between them they have raised over $2000 in profit! And it’s not over! I have a meeting with our P&F representatives tomorrow to see if we can support them with their Christmas stall."
