Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Whoof Whoofs, a highly regarded dog day care business established in 2014.
The ‘turn-key’ operation comes with a loyal client base which will be carefully handed over to any new owner.
Our client holds keys for each property as most of their clients are at work, our client usually collect the dogs between 8.30-10am, The rest of the day is spent in their secure fields with a shelter / indoor area in each field, After a busy day the dogs get dropped home between 3.30pm-5pm.
We would advise any new owner to keep the locations and type of walking to maintain the loyal client base.
As the country returns to more normality, there will be an increased demand for holiday dog sitting. Many people prefer their pets to be looked after by a regular person within a family home rather than being sent to a standard kennel environment.
There is both a business website and active Facebook page included in the transfer of the sale.
As many of the dog owners work full time, the ability to see their beloved pets enjoying their walks gives them the peace of mind of the great quality time they are spending out of the family home.
Our client currently undertakes very little advertising which we recommend any new owner look to add.
Key selling points -
- Very well established business
- Desirable location with increasing resident numbers
- Increasing demand as dog owners go back into the office
- Full handover offered
- Opportunity to increase the number of walks
- Opportunity to increase the services offered
Very rarely do independent dog walking businesses of this standard or location come on to the open market and we therefore strongly recommend early enquiry to avoid any disappointment.
