What are the benefits of a PetStay dog franchise?

If you love dogs but can’t commit to owning one, you might have considered working with dogs instead. If you’re wondering what your options are, whether it’s for you or how to go about it, read on to discover how a PetStay dog franchise can help.

What is a PetStay franchise?

Buying into a franchise allows you to run your own business with the help and support of a bigger brand. When you become a PetStay franchisee, you’ll be able to operate in an exclusive area. We’ll also support you with training, marketing and everything else you need to run a successful business.

You can spend time with dogs on your terms

At PetStay, one of the main qualifications we look for in a franchisee or dog carer is that they love dogs. We’re all passionate about providing the best possible care for our customers’ beloved pets. As a franchisee, you can decide whether to be a carer or manage your team of carers.

Your day-to-day life can involve everything from talking to a new customer to match them with the perfect carer to sorting the paperwork, marketing your business and keeping in touch with head office. Everything is flexible and works around your life and other commitments.

A dog franchise lets you be part of a recognised brand


If you were to start a business offering home boarding for dogs under your own name, it could take a while for you to build a reputation. Our pooches are family, so our customers must trust us to take the best possible care of our dogs.


A dog franchise lets you start your business using a name that’s already recognised and trusted. It gives you a head start. We’ve been around since 2005. We’ve built an excellent reputation and won multiple awards. So your customers can come to you knowing you’ve been approved and trained by a brand they can rely on.


We’ll provide training and support

Starting a new business can be a steep learning curve, especially if you’ve never done it before. A franchise provides training and support to help you grow your business. Finding the right suppliers can involve a lot of trial and error, but we’ll have you covered. It’s essential to spend time talking to a business before you buy a franchise, so you can be confident that they’re the right company for you.

A PetStay franchise includes all of these elements:

  • Training
  • Networking, both in-person and online
  • A package including stationery and promotional materials
  • A business email account
  • Exclusivity within your area
  • A dedicated web page to promote your business
  • Booking software
  • Branded merchandise
  • An operations manual

Your earnings depend on you

We’re often asked how much a franchisee can expect to earn. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer. We’ll give you the support you need, but ultimately, your earnings depend on you. Running a franchise lets you manage your own time and work flexibly, but it still involves hard work. Some of our franchisees earn over £3,000 a month, and over 70% of our business comes from repeat customers. It just goes to show that if you prove yourself to a new customer, you could have them for life!

Your income also depends on how many carers you can recruit and support. The more bookings you have, the more you can earn.
