When doody calls, the Gormans answer. Lois and Mike Gorman, of El Dorado Hills, recently started their own business as owners of DoodyCalls.
“We help people with busy schedules take care of the single-most unpleasant and time consuming aspect of pet ownership,” Mike Gorman said. “We’re the number one in the number two business.”
As the name implies, DoodyCalls is a pooper-scooper business. Costing on average less than $15 per visit, rates are based on number of dogs, size of yard and frequency of visits, ranging from weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and one-time clean-ups.
“We’ve been doing this in our own back yard for years,” Mike Gorman said. “We figured, why not be professional poop scoopers.” Mike worked in the IT field for more than 30 years. His wife Lois attended to the couple’s three daughters. The time came when they made the decision to go into business for themselves.
