My Best Friend Business
Van-Based Dog Care Franchise

My Best Friend will organise a fully branded van for their franchisees!

My Best Friend is a successful and expanding Van-Based Dog Care Franchise. If you like dogs, have an eye for business and are looking for a franchise opportunity from a proven business with a fantastic reputation, then the My Best Friend Business is just what you are looking for.

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

What does a My Best Friend Business owner do?

My Best Friend franchisees provide a caring, convenient and professional service for dog-owners. Their services include:

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

As a My Best Friend Business owner you can choose to build your business using all or some of the services to suit your lifestyle.

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 Business owner you can build up a network of carers for home boarding. You will 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.

My Best Friend will work with you to build a tailored and exclusive territory on which to become established. They will give you comprehensive training and support to help you find clients, recruit carers and dog walkers, and assist with the day to day running of your Dog Care Business.
