Sales Potential

Playful Pups business cardsMany dog walking services offer generic services and charge a great deal more than Playful Pups. We offer tailored services at fees that will ensure business growth and success. By targeting busy pet owners, our franchisees will begin to see the potential of their new business right away. With a low start-up cost, Playful Pups is designed to attract pet lovers who are looking to become a part of the billion pound per year pet care industry and make a sizeable profit at the same time.

A target number of around 13 dogs per day, either solo or in groups, can easily be achieved.  Prices do vary, dependent upon the area, but the average range is between £10 and £15 per hour. Therefore, the bigger the group, the more you can earn per hour. Statistics reveal that professional dog walkers exercise around 192 dogs per month with an average charge of £11.50 per hour. This equates to an annual earning of £26,496.  This figure could be achieved by exercising 13 dogs a day and working just 15 days per month making the earning potential greater. Depending on your area and the applicable price per hour, you could earn between £130 and £195 per day (based on 13 dogs). You could further increase the earnings potential by offering additional services, such as pet visits for less mobile dogs and day boarding.

In year two you will see a further significant rise in income due to repeat bookings and referrals.

Earning Potential: Up to £300 per day depending on the area and pet saturation, along with what services you decide to offer as a Playful Pups franchisee.

Price:  £3,450 — this is exceptionally low cost in comparison with similar franchises in this industry and kept low to ensure our franchisees have the best chance for success.

Playful Pups franchises are expected to be valued at around £14,000 each within the next two years - making this a very good investment for any potential franchisees that take advantage of this in its early stages. You can sell on your franchise at any time, making a profit on your initial investment, too.

Monthly fees: special offer - NO MONTHLY FEES

Playful Pups franchisees can expect a return on their investment within the first three months of ownership and continued growth thereafter.
