Holidays4Dogs Success

Holidays4Dogs was founded by Claire Rhodes in 2006 as a result of concerns among dog owners about leaving their dog when they went away. At the heart of the business was a desire to provide a real ‘Holiday stay’ by treating guest dogs as part of our family, living with us and enjoying all home comforts, love, rural exercise and attention our guests are used to receiving at home.

Thousands of dog owners across the UK rely upon Holidays4Dogs for their pet care; other owners are delighted to discover our 5* EXCELLENT service – Highly recommended service (Trustpilot independent review). Our invitation to you is to join in our business success looking after dogs in your home and managing your own team of dedicated home based dog carers.

Becoming A Franchisee

As a Holidays4Dogs franchise business owner you will look after a team of licensed carers who will board between one and two dogs of their choice. You are also likely to become a home boarder yourself (if you are not already one), but this is not essential if your circumstances do not allow.

You will be provided with all the training and expertise to expand your ready-made team within your exclusive territory and meet the needs of dog owners in your area.

With your Holidays4Dogs business you can finally take control of your life, work with dogs and provide quality, reliable, caring and professional dog care. Doing what you do will be a feel-good job every day. Read what our owners have to say about our 5* service.

MORE ABOUT HOLIDAYS4DOGS?

MORE ABOUT HOLIDAYS4DOGS?

Your Holidays4Dogs business is the only franchise that offers you included-in-the-price full access to our Integrated Management System (IMS) to run your business. This easy-to-use system allows you simple login access to your business wherever you are, on the go, and anywhere you travel – No need to worry about taking holiday time out yourself, you can take your business with you or ask one of our experienced team to cover your business for you while you are away – It’s as easy as that!

Unlike some pet businesses you will also not be required to drive around all day dropping off and collecting dogs. You will need a car but only to do the driving you want to do, visiting new carers, attending shows and getting the word out to Vets and dog professionals – Not all the busy chores running around.

WORRIED ABOUT THE ‘TRICKY STUFF’?

WORRIED ABOUT THE ‘TRICKY STUFF’?

Our IMS takes care of everything! From bookings to processes, admin and online payments. Easy to understand sales coming in and payments outstanding are all on record for you making it easy to keep track of your business.
Your easy-to-use daily dashboard of ‘things to do’ will let you know what’s happening with online bookings, payments, new customer registrations and record keeping. Our clever system even allows for automated repeat bookings - Imagine daily logging in to find repeat bookings all arranged and paid with minimum input! No need to worry about missing anything or getting in a muddle, it’s all on record for you.
Your low-admin-system allows you more time to speak to dog owners, meet owners face to face, be around dogs and recruit more dog carers - the things you like to do without being bogged down by paper work or out on the road driving around all day!

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are determined for success. You will be a driven individual who knows what they want but perhaps not quite how to start. You are prepared to work hard in this feel good industry and enjoy the rewards from doing so. Our franchisees are all huge dog lovers and as such you should enjoy meeting and chatting with other dog owners.

Maybe you already look after dogs yourself and do it so well you feel overwhelmed by delighted customers? If this is you, it’s possible you are feeling so pressured to not let anyone down that you hardly have a life to yourself anymore. Your own team of Holidays4Dogs carers will help with that pressured commitment without having to let anyone down or turn away business - business you still benefit from.
