Opening a Dog Daycare – How to Get Started

Here’s Exactly Where You Should Start

If you’re thinking about opening a dog daycare business, then you already know how fulfilling and lucrative owning one can be. However, you may not exactly know how to go about starting a dog daycare. Not to worry, because you’ve come to the right place! While opening any business can seem overwhelming, starting the journey toward owning your own dog daycare franchise isn’t as challenging as you may think. When you invest in a proven and successful brand, some of the hardest work is already done!

The K9 Resorts Difference

Opening a dog daycare business starts with one thing: an undying love for dogs! There’s no way you’re getting into the business of pet care if you don’t have a soft spot for our furry, four-legged friends. The best dog daycare operations understand the needs of dogs and how to run a business that puts them at the top of the priority list. This is where K9 Resorts differentiates itself from the competition. Dog daycares and boarding facilities are a dime a dozen but finding an operation that truly cares about dogs and sticks to best-in-care practices is unique. That’s why investing in a K9 Resorts dog daycare and boarding franchise can not only be profitable, but give you an opportunity to give the animals you’re so passionate about, and their owners, an unmatched experience. K9 Resorts offers an unparalleled experience through luxury accommodations, custom care services, and ultra-hygienic operations. Pets and pet parents love our facilities which sets you up for success. Our franchise comes complete with highly refined operations, 24/7 franchisee support, and comprehensive training and marketing. With K9 Resorts, it’s just different.

What Sets K9 Resorts Apart from the Other Dog Daycare Franchises


How to Get Started

The first step in starting a dog daycare business is figuring out what kind of operation you want to run. If you’re opening your own independent location, you’ll need a business plan, funding, a venue, a marketing plan, process plans, and more. If you decide to invest in a franchise, you’ll start by contacting that specific franchise that you’re interested in. Whether you’re opening an independent operation or investing in a trusted brand like K9 Resorts, making contact is the first step.

If you’re looking to open a franchise location like K9 Resorts, you’ll want to start by going through the franchisee process. At K9 Resorts, we don’t sell franchises, we partner with qualified people. We award our franchises to those individuals that can uphold our brand’s standards and who truly want to dedicate their energy to providing best-in-class service to pets and pet parents. Before you even fill out a franchise application, you’ll have a conversation with a K9 Resorts representative to make sure that the opportunity is something both parties are interested in. Then you’ll go through our application process and schedule a visit to our corporate offices. After your Discovery Day at headquarters, you’ll be able to review the Franchise Disclosure Document, so you can be sure you’ll know what’s expected of you as a K9 Resorts franchisee. Finally, you’ll be ready to sign up to join the K9 Resorts family.

What Happens Next

Once you’ve signed on as part of the K9 Resorts family, you’ll have access to a wide range of support to help get your new franchise off the ground. In order to provide best-in-class care for pets, we first have to provide best-in-class care for our franchisees! We provide a scalable business model that covers everything from support in location selection to training to growth strategies. Our franchisees have access to elite business systems, a real estate selection team, industry-leading training, comprehensive marketing, proprietary technology, and straightforward financing. We’ll help you with everything you need to succeed because your success is our success.
