Petpals - where passion for pets meets great business opportunity

As the largest multi-service pet care franchise in the UK, we know our way around the marketplace. We have been helping franchisees achieve their goals for over 20 years and we can help you capitalise on the nation’s love of animals to build a strong, profitable business.

Start a Petpals Franchise

Whether you choose to start your business as an owner-operator or decide to invest in a team from the outset, our management franchise gives you the system for success. As a Petpals franchisee, you benefit from the knowledge and experience that has kept our franchise model as the market leader for the last 20 years. Our initial training is designed to leverage your existing skillset and our tailored ongoing support will help you to achieve your full business potential.

Across our network of 50-plus franchisees, we have both single and multi-territory owners who come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have one thing in common - a dedication to pet welfare. In a UK market where 59% of all households own a pet, including 12.5 million dogs, 12.2 million cats and another 8.1 million small pets*, our services are in high demand. You will grow a team delivering our best-in-class services which include:

  • Cat and small pet sitting

  • Pet home boarding
  • Puppy and elderly dog care
  • Pet taxi and domestic pet transportation
