Dogtopia is a unique daycare business that aims to create a playful and enjoyable daytime care service for dogs modeled after children's daycare. Offering clients an affordable and trustworthy form of entertainment and care for their furry friends, Dogtopia utilizes an "indoor dog park" theme that's both engaging and fun for dogs of all sizes and shapes. Services include daycare, boarding, spa baths, brush-outs, ear cleaning, teeth brushing, nail trims, and grooming.
Values & History
The first Dogtopia opened its doors in Virginia back in 2002, when dog daycare was a new concept to most. Our innovative approach was met with tremendous success, with franchise opportunities opening up to the public in 2005 and the first Canadian location opening in Coquitlam in 2014. Since then the idea of daycare for dogs has gained more comprehensive acceptance, but Dogtopia continues to lead the pack with its incredible range of services, quality care, and commitment to canine happiness.
Pet grooming and boarding represents a booming industry in the US as economic improvements have led to higher discretionary spending among pet owners. Topping over $9 billion in total revenue for 2019 alone, the industry has experienced incredible growth averaging about 6.2% over the last five years, with that trend expected to further increase throughout many years to come.
Purchasing a Dogtopia Franchise
Prospective owners will need access to at least $450,000 in liquid capital to pursue a Dogtopia franchise and should be prepared to invest between $850,000 and $1,000,000 to get things rolling. Financing is not currently available, but qualified veterans do receive a 10% discount on franchise fees in gratitude for their service.
Ideal Candidate & Qualifications
Franchise owners come from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels, but all share a desire to manage and grow their own business. Our company works interactively as a collective team, with established franchisees helping new owners to stay motivated and passionate about achieving their business goals. A background in management with some experience in business operations is preferred, but not expressly required for success. Sales, team leadership, training, and marketing experience will also help new owners successfully deal with the rigors of business ownership. While all our franchise owners are different, they're united in their love for dogs and their positions as providers of top-quality care within their respective communities.
Training & Support
The Dogtopia team-based approach to franchisee success hinges on our comprehensive training program, in which a team of dedicated industry professionals will guide you through each phase of orientation, beginning with a 30-day initial training program at Dogtopia University that includes two weeks of classroom instruction and two weeks of hands-on in-store training. Grand opening support begins six days before the business opens its doors to the public and continues for ten days to ensure smooth operations, while ongoing marketing and sales training, one-on-one coaching, field visits, and monthly webinars and workshops will keep you and your professional team on the cutting edge of the industry. An annual conference among Dogtopia franchisees encourages networking and further support, with around the clock access to the network to ensure you get the assistance you need when you need it.
