Dog Care & Kennel Franchises

Americans love their pets, and they want the best possible care for them, especially when they leave home. A kennel and dog day care franchise is a great opportunity for anyone who shares this love of man’s best friend. Operating this kind of business allows you to enjoy time with new four-legged friends, while giving pet owners piece of mind that their furry family members are being cared for in their absence. If you have always had an affinity for dogs and owning your own business, there are many great opportunities in this category.

Types of Dog & Kennel Franchises

A kennel or doggie day care franchise offers several options. Your location can offer both a day care option, allowing the pets to socialize while their owners are at work, as well as overnight boarding, for when owners are out of town. Additionally, your kennel and dog day care can provide private rooms for each pet, or a kennel, as well as an open play area for the dogs to roam and interact with one another.

Why Buy a Kennel or Doggie Day Care?

A kennel and dog day care franchise can be a great business opportunity for the right person. If you enjoy interacting with pets and their owners, this may be the way to achieve your entrepreneurial dream. It is also important to have knowledge or a background in animal behavior and/or care to ensure that you are able to meet the needs of all your furry visitors. Finally, consider your location and the potential need for pet daycare and boarding in your area.
