With the percentage of people who own a pet rising to 60% in the UK since lockdown, now is a great time to consider investing in a pet franchise. Many people are going back to the office or booking holidays, meaning a pet service is essential over this period. Finding a trustworthy pet carer or pet service business is extremely important to all pet owners and lovers. Friends for pets have an incredible team of pet carers that love the pets they look after as if they are their own. Having a reliable team means cover can be organised for pets if staff go on holiday or days off. We train all our staff using our little sister company, The Pet Academy and our head office team and franchise network are always there for constant support to all our staff.

All franchisees receive an incredible amount of support from our franchisor, Becca. Becca spends lots of time helping you build the Friends for Pets’ business in your area, along with ideas to help the business grow such as adverts, social media, local events. We aways support the franchisee with everything they need, depending on what they want to achieve through a pet service, whether that be boarding, dog walking, pet sitting, house sitting. Having support from other franchisees and the franchisor allows you to build your business to what you want it to be and learn from others as to what works well.

Having a Friends for Pets franchise means you can build the business as big or small or as quick or slow as you want. Some people have big business ideas and plans to build a big team of pet carers to cover lots of pet services, whereas others decide to keep a small local business with a small number of pet carers.
