Did I get paid to look at cute photos of puppies all day? Maybe. Did it take me longer to design this site because I got distracted by puppy photos? Definitely. Working with Heather and Deana from K9 Lifeline was fantastic. They originally came to me with an EXTREMELY outdated website (I think it had been over a decade since it’s last update). Needless to say, it was time to chat with someone like me. K9 Lifeline’s core business is dog training, but another great potential source of revenue for them was to sell products through their website. They have custom training collars for example that are a big part of their training program and their old site was not setup very well to handle the shopping cart functionality. Another big reason for reaching out to me was that they were actively filming a pilot episode for a reality TV show about dog training, something they’d be pitching to huge TV networks, and they didn’t want their website to look like it was a done when Zac Morris had the most up-to-date cell phone on the market!
I created a fully responsive design that integrated shopping cart functionality and also that highlighted the core services of their business – training, boarding and grooming. The site is SO easy to navigate, making the entire UX (user-experience) enjoyable for new customers and old… and for the employees too. The site is super easy to manage on the back-end. I knew they’d have constantly changing services, prices, etc. as well as product updates in their cart, so it was important that I make the site extremely easy for them to manage. I never want a client to feel like they are at the mercy of me to make updates easily to their site – that’s not a fun place to be for anyone!
Just wanted to send you a quick message and thank you for our amazing website! Sorry it took so long, but wow, thanks to the site we are crazy busy! We get compliments constantly and so much business thanks to the look, and ease of navigation, not to mention very mobile friendly! I was completely shocked at how quickly you were able to put it together, I gave you a very short timeline and you met every expectation and exceeded it. Thanks again for your hard work and awesome site! We love it as much as everyone that sees it!
