Under cover walking for dogs is Cardiff business success

New business creation in Wales is the highest it has been for a decade, according to the most recent official figures.

Over 11,000 new firms were created in 2013, the last year we have details for.

Shelley Redding from Cardiff set-up Action Petz seven months ago and already has 1,000 members.

Owners can take their dogs to walk and play at the 20,000 sq ft indoor park in Tremorfa, which is on the site of a former steel warehouse.

The idea comes from the United States though this is the first of its kind in the UK.

Ms Redding decided to start the business after her pet dog Rocco was stolen while they were walking in the park.
