Britain’s 8.5 million dogs are in a fortunate position. Owners are not just spending more on their faithful friends, they are happy to pay out for creative ways to keep pooches healthy and happy. In one survey, 26% of dog owners in the UK (3.6 million) admitted they go all out to pamper their pets – including lavish birthday parties and a Christmas gift bonanza. A quarter of dog owners in another survey admitted to being more likely to splash the cash on their faithful companion than 5 years ago. The average yearly spend on “extras” is over £1,252, including such activities as indoor dog parks.
If you are wondering how to open an indoor dog park, it's likely there's a considerable number of customers in your geographical area happy to pay for some four legged fun. However, it is not that easy. Managing a business can still be complex and demanding, which is why the franchise route is so appealing.
In a nutshell, you get to be your own boss, but with the reassurance and support of an established and respected company behind you. Your indoor dog park franchiser can help you find the right location, tackle planning regulations, staff training and the vital insurance and legal compliance systems you need.
Technical support is usually on offer, including that all important website and other marketing activities. It is self employment – but knowing a bigger company is there to help. You also get favourable prices on supplies and equipment for your indoor dog training park.
Among the companies willing to share their successful business model is Action Petz. The Business in a Box team also have an option for a Fido’s Indoor Dog park franchise. Alternatively, Doggie Diner is a canine café and indoor fun centre concept ready to expand.
