“We always had a problem with dropping our pet dog (Benzi) when we wanted to travel. The problem exists with all pet owners. Eventually we had our friends drop their pets with us for taking care of them. So we decided one fine day that we should just start a pet stay business. The pet stay is named after their first pet, Benzi, a friendly German Shepherd. Speaking of Benzi, Nirmiti says that she was everything that a breeder could have done wrong. While their veterinarian gave Benzi4 years to live, Nirmiti and Prasanna have raised her with so much care and she is now celebrating her 9th year.
Speaking of the beginning of Benzi Pet stay, Nirmiti says, “Initially when we started 4 years ago, we were still learning. We had taken in almost any dog that walked in. We were new and I was still working, whereas Prasanna had quit his job to run the establishment. We didn’t want to say no to any pet. Benzi has taught us a lot about which pet to accept into Benzi Pet Stay. There was a time when she warned us in her own way. She walked away, she pushed us away and she did her way to let us know she wasn’t quite comfortable with the boarder.” Today, Prasanna and Nirmiti are certified in various fields such as dog behavioural training and correction etc.
