Can I look after dogs for a living without any prior experience of running a business?

No matter how much you love dogs, starting a business with no prior experience can be tough. Starting up alone means you will have to quickly learn to deal with all aspects. Licensing, quality compliance, administration, marketing and legal requirements can all seem daunting. If you like to rise to the challenge, this may be the option for you. However, if you would prefer to have the security of following a tried and tested business model with support and specialist training, a franchise may be your preferred choice.

Barking Mad franchise owners create profitable and successful businesses with the support and expertise of a leading national brand. Franchisees offer bespoke dog holidays by recruiting a local community of carefully chosen , dog-loving host families. Host families offer care in their own homes for pets whose owners are away.

If you would like a lifestyle with flexibility, a growing full time income and the rewards of making a really positive difference to the lives of dog lovers and their four legged best friends, a Barking Mad franchise could be just the solution for you. Sharing our dog care sector know-how, systems and brand name has enabled our large network to start or grow their own successful businesses.

Why not come along and meet us at one of our free discovery open days? The Lake District and the Midlands are regular venues. Attendees get the chance to ask questions and meet our team and an existing franchisee.
