 Work with the Owners and Founders!

Jesse and Chris are the original owners and co-founders of The Dog Stop®. They have personally developed all of the policies and procedures that make The Dog Stop® America’s preferred dog care facility.  As dog owners themselves, they were not happy with what was available in terms of dog care. They sought out to develop a dog care concept that was centered around the customer experience and fixed all of the common flaws in the dog care industry. Every policy and procedure was created with the dog owner in mind to maximize customer satisfaction while improving transparency, convenience and value.

Jesse and Chris have lived the life of the store owner, put in the long hours and know exactly what it takes to make a location successful. Likewise, our support staff have all worked every position in a The Dog Stop® store and can use real world  experiences to help guide you on a daily basis. We take great pride in supporting our franchise partners, after all, when you join The Dog Stop® team your truly part of the family.

More BARK for Your Buck?

People often ask: “How can you build and open stores for so much less than the competition?”

The answer is: We have worked very hard to negotiate substantial discounts with all of our vendors and suppliers. This includes but is not limited to: kennels, interior and exterior fencing, flooring, dog care supplies, building materials, POS software, retail inventory and more.  We pass 100% of these savings along to you, the franchisee. We DO NOT receive any kickbacks or rebates based upon the dollars our franchisees spend.  Our design and construction team works with the existing building or structure to determine to create the ideal layout for your facility. We do not relocated utilities, mechanicals, etc. just to conform to a prototypical design. This equates to substantial savings for our franchisees during the design and construction process.

That allows you to get your location open quickly for the lowest entry costs in the industry.

The BEST Training in the Industry

Dog Owners Prefer The Dog Stop®

Our business was model was founded upon 3 simple principles:

1.) 100% Transparency – At The Dog Stop® we have an open door policy.  Any client is free to take a tour and see exactly where their dog is playing or staying at any time.

2.) The BEST Customer Service – We never say “NO” at The Dog Stop®. We work very hard to always find a way to accommodate the needs of our customers (2 and 4 legged).  All of our policies and procedures have been specifically created with the customer in mind. We always provide exceptional care to our doggy clients while making it convenient and affordable for our pet parents.

3.) One Stop Dog Care – We have combined all of the dog care services under one roof. This means your customers will never need to find another competing business for any other services. It just makes sense to offer everything your customer could need for their dog at one convenient location. That is why every The Dog Stop® location offers : Dog day care, overnight boarding, grooming, obedience training, in-home services and a retail store stocked with the best foods, toys, treats and accessories available.
