What We Do at My Best Friend
My Best Friend provides a caring, convenient and professional service for dog-owners.
Our services include:
- Dog Walking
- Home Boarding
- Doggy Day Care
- Pet Sitting and Puppy Care
As a franchisee, you can choose to build your business using all or some of our services to suit your lifestyle.
Our mission is to be the most convenient, caring and reliable dog care services provider and to treat each and every dog in our care as if they were our own
We are not an online matching service and we assess each and every dog (and owner) before taking a booking. We’ve found this personal approach results in happy dogs, with happy owners who use our services again and again, providing a core of ‘regulars’ that’s vital for building a stable income.
As a My Best Friend business owner, every day will be different. You’re likely to be spending a lot of time outside walking the dogs in your care. If you’ve built up a network of carers for home boarding, you’ll 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 business grows, you may also decide to recruit one or more dog walkers to give you a hand.
