dog care service
Description of franchise system
A dog lovers business
We care for the dogs of our clients like we care for ours. 101 Friends provides a dog care service with the heart for pet owners who need someone to look after their dog for a day or a longer period. We place the dogs in a caring environment at a carer's home, which is always located close to the pet owners home.
Before leaving their dog at a carer's home, clients can visit the carer at his or her place to see where and with whom they will leave their beloved companion. Our service is very different from the traditional animal hostel. With 101 Friends, dogs stay at a family and receive all the attention and love they are used to.
Clients fill in a form to tell us which kind of environment and which routine
their pet is used to. This helps us to provide the best possible care for the
dog. Our dog carers are of course always available to give the
pet owner a short repot on the phone, so our clients have the possibility to
know how their dog is doing, if they wish to. 101 Friends works only with carers
that we've checked and interviewed personally.
We also visit them homes and check them closely before approving a carer. 101 Friend is a club and clients buy a lifetime membership before they can use our services. Lifetime sounds long and expensive, but this is a more formal thing, our lifetime membership costs only £10. Our care service is also priced very competitively, at only £16 per day and dog, and we offer significant discounts for members who have more than one dog.
Start a hearty business
101 Friends is the ideal franchise opportunity for dog lovers who wish to work from home and manage a profitable business that's about so much more than just earning money. Our franchise opportunity is priced extremely low, and requires only a set of standard devices such as a car, a telephone and a computer with an internet connection. This means that overheads are also extremely low.
Running a 101 Friends franchise doesn't mean that you will be busy looking after dogs all day long - instead, you'll manage a network of dog carers, who look after the dogs of your clients at their homes. Of course we won't push you out there to sink or swim, you'll receive detailed manuals and a comprehensive training program before you start. Our business is not really seasonal, but the busiest time is of course the summer holidays.
