Full Description

Join an award-winning dog day care franchise

We are the most established dog day care crèche, a market leader in the UK, with phenomenal results.

We have a reputation for inspiring service levels, our policy is always safety first and we offer a luxury upscale service to a dog loving clientele. We are the Canine Creche Group Ltd.

Our flagship business is Suffolk Canine Creche and our business model is based on this centre. This facility currently offers day care for an average of 400 dogs per week, also we have our additional services, hotel overnight bedroom suites, a Dog-Cademy for training and rehabilitation, full size swimming pool (just for fitness and fun) and our on-site grooming spa, Fluff The Ruff.

You would be forgiven for thinking our facilities resemble children’s nurseries – they do, with climbing frames, wendy houses, slides and paddling pools. Brain games, tunnels and jumps.

We are known for having well-trained staff, knowledgeable in their field and have been awarded at an employer level for our training and development processes.

Our franchise program is set up to accommodate an investor who wants to place a Manager into their business as well as Franchise Owner/Managers who wish to be onsite daily.

What makes us unique

We were the first company in the UK to offer canine creches to this scale and based on the successful American model. Our founder worked with legislators to change old-fashioned kennelling policy to be the current legislation it is today.

Our core business is day care, we understand dog behaviour, we have developed an efficient and accurate method to temperament test all dogs, a business critical process.

This is not a business to run from home, this is a full-scale, stand-alone facility. Our “mother ship” currently cares for over 400 dogs per week on day care alone.

The Pet Care Market

Britons will surpass £4.6bn for the first time in 2015, a 3% increase on last year and 25% growth since 2010.

Global spending will break through $100bn according to Euromonitor and UK consumers spent £1.5bn on non-food gifts and services for their pets, such as day care, grooming, holidays, clothes and toys.

The humanisation of pets is the force behind the trend, for the future direction of the market, we can use the USA as a model, which has historically led the trends in the UK pet care market. Barkday parties (birthday parties for dogs), Doga (Dog Yoga), Pet Slimming classes and even Bark Mitzvhas are becoming more commonplace.

Whilst these innovations still seem outrageous to the average British consumer, it gives a strong indication as to where the future lies for the pet care market. Already, we have seen the startup of boutique pet bakeries, and the growth of our organisation has defied average business trends.
