Company Overview

With approximately 60 franchises operating across the UK, Petpals provide a comprehensive range of home-from-home and in your home pet care services. Our in-depth training and operating systems provide the perfect basis for launching a home- and van-based business on either an individual owner/operator or management franchise basis. Our services are tailored to the needs of our clients and their pets and our franchisees play a vital role in the ongoing development of our business.

Franchise Overview

Developed from the original pet care business model operated by our founder in the late 1990s, Petpals offers much more than a home boarding or dog walking service; it is a professional, tried and tested, successful business format which is fully supported by the Petpals team and nationwide network of franchisees. We have a successful track record of both franchise renewals and resales and are proud to be full members of the bfa.

Training

Our training is both classroom- and field-based and will include time in the field with an experienced franchisee together with pet first aid and practical dog handling skills. There will also be 4 days training at our head office in Hampshire which will include our operating procedures, accounting and marketing.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Day-to-day activities will be largely based around caring for clients’ pets, walking dogs or visiting cats/small pets. You will also need to find time to visit clients in their homes to discuss their pet’s requirements and carry out assessments for new business, plus all the usual administrative and marketing functions required to run your own business. With a head office team and a network of experienced franchisees to call on, support and advice is always available.
