    Hello All,
    I am a university student taking an entrepreneurship course. For my business plan I have proposed a doggy daycare here in Ottawa. I have been trying to get people to fill out my survey the past few weeks, but a lot of the people in Ottawa are not very friendly. If anyone can help me out by taking a few minutes to fill out my survey (20 multiple choice questions), then post or send me your e-mail and I will send you the survey. Thank you very much in advance.
