Frequently Asked Questions
Here are FAQs about becoming a K9 Resorts Franchisee. If you have additional questions, please contact us.
How do I become a franchisee?
K9 Resorts is very selective about who we grant a franchise to. We need to get to know one another to determine if there is a good fit for both of us. We don’t sell franchises, we award them to qualified people that we feel will continue to build on the K9 Resorts track record.
What kind of experience do I need to be considered as a potential K9 Resorts franchisee?
We believe that the most successful franchisees are solid business individuals, hard workers, and genuine dog lovers. They also have the skill set to work with the general public, manage employees and have the skills to follow a budget.
What is the cost to open a K9 Resorts?
The cost to open depends on many factors, including the size of your building, your location, construction costs, equipment, professional fees and licenses. A K9 Resorts facility can range in size from 4,500 square feet to 6,000 square feet with a range in opening costs from $915,655 – $1,292,859.
Does K9 Resorts provide financing?
K9 Resorts does not provide financing directly, however, we do have strong relationships with local banks that are our “preferred lenders” and are ready to lend to those who meet their financial qualifications. Typically 25% of the total investment is necessary to obtain financing.
Is there an ongoing royalty fee?
Yes, as with virtually all franchises, there is a royalty fee. Our royalty fee is 6% of gross sales.

Do I have to be involved in the business full time?
Yes! K9 Resorts is seeking franchisees who will commit their best efforts to developing their business. Therefore, K9 Resorts franchises to individuals who personally operate their facility and are involved in day-to-day operation of their hotel on a full-time basis.
NOTE: The K9 Resorts Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) answers all questions regarding our Owner/Operators’ opportunities. If there is any inconsistency or conflict between these questions and the FDD, the FDD will control.
