The dog franchise

Who are we
looking for?
We want people who are passionate about pets. You don’t need previous business experience, to own and operate a dog care franchise but it sometimes helps. It’s highly likely you have your own home, with a reasonable garden, not too close to your immediate neighbours, with nice walks close by and likely to have up to 15,000 locals living within a 5-mile radius. As to the rest, here are a few other key words: hard working, committed, self-starter, organised, positive outlook, good communication skills, works well with others, enjoys exercise, and lastly, you’ll have a good sense of humour.

We want people who want to succeed, who won’t miss the traffic getting to work, who are up for some fun working from home and who would like to earn £25,000 -£50,000 per annum.

We also require that you’ve had your own dog(s). But don’t worry, part of your early training in a MyWaggyTails pet care franchise will be attending courses on dog behaviour, welfare and first-aid.

The why
Why take a dog care franchise with us?

“It’s changed my life. Working hours that work around my family while doing something I love.”

Mitch Howey
Franchisee Principal

Changing lives
Our story
At the heart of MyWaggyTails are much loved pets, really great people and our families, each with our own story and experiences to share.

Collectively, we have much to contribute, and we can all learn from each other. Here’s a bit of the MyWaggyTails back-story.

After the early demands of family life and primary schooling, Mitch wanted to return to work, but with her husband Phil away for weeks at a time and the demands of family life, she needed to find something that kept her mind and body active but still allowed for family flexibility.

From those early conversations, our MyWaggyTails pet care franchise was born and Mitch opened the MyWaggyTails doors in March 2017. After 18 months, she was hitting £35k of annual sales and that was from a standing start.

Our personal approach results in happy dogs and delighted owners, who see great value in our ‘happy home from home’ formula, whether for unexpected emergencies or holidays in the sun. ‘Word-of-mouth’ referrals from clients and business from ‘regulars’ makes life easier and has been key to growing our successful business.

 

  I’m proud to say I’ve been able to build a business around one of the loves of my life.

Getting started with a doggy day care franchise

For a sense of the financials for this dog care franchise opportunity, assuming you’re licensed for the boarding of 4-5 dogs, and providing doggy day-care, once up and running, your annual sales figures could be:

£25k (Y1); £35k (Y2); £50k (Y3+)

The upper number is only limited by the number of dogs you can take and how you optimise your possible pet care franchise services. We’ve deliberately not over-hyped the numbers. It’s not always holiday time, when you’re often busiest. If you do your own modelling based on MyWaggyTails Chinnor’s prices, you get a sense of the possible. I should add that there isn’t a national pricing structure for MyWaggyTails. Local markets require dynamic pricing that reflect local competitive forces. (The only thing we avoid, is undercutting other local MyWaggyTails business owners.)

1. Understanding the costs of a dog franchise

The costs fall loosely into three sections: –

  1. Your dog care franchise costs
  2. Your marketing and management fees
  3. Your annual operating costs

First 5 Years franchise fee

Our franchise fee = £7,750 + VAT (£9,300 inc VAT)

This cover the first 5 years, payable up-front, on contract exchange.

Years 5-10 franchise fee (optional)

You can renew your per care franchise 5 years later, at a preferential rate (subject to meeting transparent performance criteria). The franchise renewal fee on the 5th anniversary = £5,750 + VAT (£6,900)

Monthly marketing and management fees

Monthly marketing contribution: £110 + VAT/month (£132 inc VAT)

Monthly management fee: We either charge a flat fee of £125 + VAT/month (£150 inc VAT) – in which case there are no sales commission charges; or, we can charge a 10% commission on all customer bookings, invoiced and paid.

Please note:

We do NOT charge any sales commission on customer bookings, we just ask you to cover the credit/debit card transaction costs applied by the merchant, and only where payment is made by credit/debit card.

2. The first 10 dog franchises: dog hotel franchise, dog day care franchise, dog walking franchise altogether

There’ll never be a better time to be part of MyWaggyTails

25% off our standard dog care franchise fees

No management fee for the first 3 months

Our franchisee fee will include a 25% discount = £6,200 + VAT (£7,440 inc VAT)

3. Annual operating costs

  • Licensing
  • Contribution to transport, insurance (Year 2 onwards), licence (Year 2 onwards), fuel, heating, light, mobile phone, incidentals, computer and Internet.
  • Part-time assistant (maybe?)
  • MyWaggyTails annual marketing contribution (paid monthly as previously mentioned)
  • MyWaggyTails annual management fee (paid monthly as previously mentioned)

4. Growing your dog care franchise business

The revenues you can generate from MyWaggyTails dog care franchise are dependent on your location, local pricing sensitivity and competition, hard work and personality (people still love people), the number of dogs you can board, day care, independent walks, home visits for other pet services and whether you grow a network of home hosts or develop a dog grooming side to your business. In short, there is bags of potential, but every situation is unique.
FAQs
Any questions?
Don’t worry, you wouldn’t be human if you didn’t have questions, and concerns.

Download the MyWaggyTails Business Prospectus to hopefully answer some of your questions. If, after reading the Prospectus you’re interested in further information, we give you a number of options to consider.

It’s just as important that we’re both right for each other. A successful partnership is built on compatibility, trust and respect. It’s best we get any doubts out of the way up front, then we can focus on the things that are most important, running a successful business that’s profitable, pain-free and fun.

Here are a couple of questions from our experience you might like answering now…

Can anyone become a MyWaggyTails franchisee?

No! There are a number of key considerations that go into finding the right partners, both for MyWaggyTails and for you.

We have to be selective. We want to look after our franchise partners properly, so currently we are limiting ourselves to a maximum of 8 new pet care franchise partners/quarter.

Can we do a dog franchise or doggy day care franchise UK ourselves?

Anything is possible.  But a MyWaggyTails dog franchise is planned, designed and priced to take away the pain, minimise risk and increase the likelihood of your success. If it was just a walk in the park, you’d immediately know how all this legislation might impact you…

  • Animal Health Act 1981
  • Animal Welfare Act 2006
  • The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018
  • Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
  • The Control of Dogs Order 1992
  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002
  • Controlled Waste Regulations 1992
  • Dangerous Dogs Act 1991
  • Data Protection Act 2018
  • Dog Fouling – Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005
  • Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996
  • Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
  • Environmental Protection Act 1990
  • ePrivacy regulations
  • Health Act 2006
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
  • The Animal Welfare Regulations 2018
  • The Microchipping of Dogs (England) Regulations 2015
  • Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992
  • Planning and Environmental Protection Act
  • Regulation on the Protection of Animals During Transport (EC) 1/2005
  • The Dangerous Dogs (Amendment) Act 1997
  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
  • Town and Country Planning Act 1990
  • Welfare of Animals (Transport)(England) Order 2006
  • Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981
  • Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992

And that’s before you worry about marketing and operations. So, our counsel (yes we’re slightly biased) is what have you got to lose by talking further with us?

What now for your dog franchise?

Download our Prospectus for more information

Once you’ve read the MyWaggyTails Business Prospectus if you believe you have what it takes to run a successful MyWaggyTails pet care franchise business, and you’d like to know more, you have the following options:-

  • Watch our Franchising with MyWaggyTails – ‘Your Next Business?’ video – see this link.
  • Express your interest for further information on becoming a MyWaggyTails dog franchise partner by clicking on this link.
  • Book a 30 minutes Skype (or landline) call with me (Randle) to answer any questions you may have on possibly becoming a MyWaggyTails pet franchise UK  partner – click on this link.
  • Request an invitation to attend one of our quarterly presentations on MyWaggyTails. Numbers are limited, and priority is given to parties who have completed and submitted the MyWaggyTails Application Form (see below). Currently, we can only accept 8 new dog care franchise partners per quarter.
  • Click on this MyWaggyTails Application Form link, start filling in the details, and tell us why you think you’re right to run a MyWaggyTails pet care business – you can save your form at any time and there is no obligation to proceed. There’s also a section in the Application Form for you to add your own questions.

And after that?

From receipt of your Franchise Application Form, we aim to have processed your information and had an initial detailed meeting with you, within 3-4 weeks of receipt, diaries permitting.

Subject to our respective views after that initial meeting, we will share drafts of all the outstanding paperwork (Franchise Disclosure Document and our Franchise Agreement).

Thereafter there will be another interview and a visit to you at home to go through things in more depth and check against our key environment criteria – we will happily provide you a list in advance.

After that, if we’re hopefully both in agreement, you can be up and running in as little as 5 weeks from signing our franchise agreement.

And of course, there is a ‘bit’ of training, face to face, online, self-study and 3rd party courses as we help you on your journey and ensure you can safely operate your pet care franchise business and comply with various laws and regulations, both before and after you open your doors.

Much later on, subject to quality and performance assessments, at the end of your 5-year franchise, you will have first option to renew it for a further 5 years.

So, it could take 2-3 months for the whole process including ‘initial ‘on-boarding’ and training. You can see why we only want to hear from people who share our passion, dedication and long-term goals.
