We have established a franchise business model that positions us to be the best franchisor in the industry. Our growth plan allows us to give our franchisees the attention they deserve on an ongoing basis, not just during the franchise sales process.

In order to provide the most complete franchise service program, The Dog Stop Franchising, LLC has assembled a team of executives and management people with over 100 years of experience in building and SUPPORTING franchise programs.

 Work with the Owners and Founders!

Jesse and Chris are the owners and founders of The Dog Stop®. They have lived the life of the franchisee and put in the long hours and know exactly what it takes to make a location successful. 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.

More BARK for Your Buck?

We have worked very hard to pass along all savings and discounts we negotiate directly to you. That allows you to get your location open quickly for the lowest entry costs in the industry.

The BEST Training in the Industry 

Our training program is the most comprehensive and complete in the pet care industry. We spend a lot of time teaching you and your team about the science of dogs. This includes but is not limited to dog behavior, dog psychology and understanding dog body language. These tools are essential in order to create a safe and fun atmosphere for the dogs.

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.

Special Considerations – Our Veterans and Wounded Warriors

We fully acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifice all U.S. veterans have made to serve our country. To show our gratitude, we have designed a program that allows veterans to own a The Dog Stop® franchise at substantially reduced fees. We know many veterans are dog lovers and are anxious to own their own business and we are happy to do anything we can to help them achieve that goal.
