Welcome to the 2.0 version of Dog Daycare!
Founded in 2002 and franchising since 2005, Dogtopia is the leading dog daycare franchise and one of the early pioneers of the industry. Each Dogtopia location specializes in dog daycare, boarding, training and spa facilities offering an experience unparalleled in the market. With an emphasis on education, exercise and socialization for dogs, pet parents have the assurance of leaving their beloved family members in the hands of trained professionals in an environment created with the safety of dogs in mind.
Each facility averages between 4,000 – 10,000 square feet and is specially designed to provide dogs and pet parents with the best experience by reducing odors, noise level, illness and accidents. Under new ownership in late 2015 and with more than 44 locations (12 more under construction) across North America and over 40 sold in 2016, the brand is poised for aggressive expansion through franchising.
Set to be a major player in the booming $62B pet services industry, Dogtopia offers its Franchisees the opportunity to enjoy a fun lifestyle and work environment, with passionate employees, a best in class franchisor with an experienced leadership team and unparalleled levels of support.
