My Best Friend Franchise | Dog Care Business

Despite increasingly hectic lifestyles, dog ownership is rising. As a result there is a real, growing demand for quality dog care in the UK.

This is why My Best Friend is developing into a network of franchises; to give an opportunity for like-minded people to create a thriving business doing work they love.

The My Best Friend Franchise Opportunity:

My Best Friend has experienced impressive growth. They have established a lucrative business model built upon the increasing demand for their services – all of which are delivered with the utmost love and care.

My Best Friend provides a caring, convenient and professional service for dog-owners.

Their services include:

  • Day Care
  • Home Visits
  • Home Boarding
  • Pet Sitting
  • Pet Transportation
  • Dog Walking

Every day will be different. You're likely to be spending a lot of time outside walking the dogs in your care. As a My Best Friend Franchisee you can choose to build your business using all or some of their services to suit your lifestyle.

If you've built up a network of carers for home boarding, you'll be making sure those dogs are happy, as well as doing house visits, new client consultations and caring for dogs you might be looking after in your own home. As your Dog Care Business grows, you may also decide to recruit one or more dog walkers to give you a hand.
