About K9 Resorts Daycare and Luxury Hotel
K9 Resorts is a lucrative dog daycare franchise for driven entrepreneurs. We offer a premium environment for pampered pets. Our unparalleled pet care provides luxurious accommodations, customized care options, and ultra-hygienic facilities. When our clients leave their four-legged friends in the care of our highly trained and certified professionals, they can rest assured they will receive the ultimate experience. Our award-winning luxury boarding and daycare services combine familiar homelike amenities with recreational fun to create resort-style vacations for dogs. Not only are we highly regarded and nationally recognized, but we are honored to have been rated the top pet care facility franchise in the nation by the International Boarding and Pet Services Association. From our cage-free dog boarding to the attentive care we provide, there are many reasons why veterinarians and other pet professionals prefer K9 Resorts.
Values & History
Lifelong animal lovers, brothers Steven and Jason Parker began their journey in 1999 with a small pet-sitting business. In 2002, Steven attended an international pet sitters conference and learned that high-end, luxury pet care was in demand. From that day forward, they've been researching and perfecting every aspect of pet care, eliminating the reasons dogs leave other facilities sick, dirty, and stressed.
Since opening their first location in Fanwood, NJ in 2005, a loyal clientele of happy pet parents and their pampered companions have helped K9 Resorts become a multi-award-winning business. With guidance from SMB Franchise Advisors, one of the top consulting firms in the country, K9 Resorts began franchising in 2011. As of 2019, there are 50 locations in thirteen states with many more in immediate development.
As the finest boarding and daycare environment in the industry, K9 Resorts is bringing stress-free, guilt-free care to dogs and families everywhere. We serve the canine community with passion, integrity, and respect, and we apply the same level of care to all aspects of our business operations. Why? So that every guest, in every location, receives the same high-quality service.
The pet industry is expanding, and rich business opportunities await. Americans of all ages spend an estimated $70 billion annually on their pets and nearly 65% of households have at least one dog. From millennials to baby-boomers, the pet industry is truly cross-dimensional. After all, who doesn't love dogs? Over the years, dogs have stopped being considered household pets, they've become family. Millennials, who make up a majority of pet owners, will go to great lengths to ensure their dogs get the best treatment, as any loving family member would. Not surprisingly, the pet services industry has grown steadily for 25 years with no signs of slowing down. K9 Resorts is proud to be part of that growth, creating stress-free environments for dogs—and lucrative business opportunities for franchisees.
