Dogstown University Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2023


Pet related businesses are booming. Owning a Dogstown University franchise could be your path to owning a part of this growing business. We will help you establish your own dog boarding and doggie daycare facility - from set up to operations, with details on licensing, zoning, financials, insurance, and working with dogs.

The pet grooming and boarding industry has proven to be one of the few established industries to post consistently strong gains over the past decade - nearly doubling in size and growing even amid the recession. This growing industry has benefited from changing consumer attitudes, which increased demand for a wide variety of new luxury pet services. Over the next five to ten years, this trend is expected to gain further momentum as pet ownership rises and pet owners use their increasing disposable income on services for their pets, including dog daycare and pet grooming.

According to a 2015-2016 American Pet Products Association survey, there are approximately 78 million dogs and 86 million cats owned in the United States. Approximately 65% of all households in the U.S. have a pet (up from 56% in 1988), which equates to 79.7 million homes.

If you have a pet, you likely spend a significant amount of money on it. Pet spending is growing year over year. Americans spent more than 60 billion dollars on their pets in 2015 alone. The pet service industry, specifically in grooming and boarding, reached $5.41 billion in revenues in the United States in 2015, and $5.73 billion in 2016.

A vast majority of pet owners describe their pets as family members. Treating your pet as a four legged child has become common. Not surprisingly, these pet owners are often willing to spend extra money to indulge their pets and care for their health and well-being. The "Pets as Family" trend has given rise to a wide variety of high end pet products and services, including daycare and resort style boarding.

Dogstown University was established in 2007 by a mother and son with a vision of creating a resort style boarding and daycare facility for four legged family members. If you are a dog/ or cat lover and are interested in starting a new business in a growing industry with a strong support system to show you how to run your business successfully, then joining the Dogstown University family is the right decision for you.
