Their facility sets on 20 acres of land with a 2,500sqft facility for ample space to encourage growth as well as comfortability of openness.

Providing services of overnight and daycare boarding, grooming, extra day exercise and exercise hikes. Flexible hours to accommodate clients schedule. Fully staffed with equipment in place for smooth ownership transition. Business operations are enacted by one full time kennel manager, one full time groomer and one part time kennel worker. Assets worth over $52,000 are included in this purchase such as 40 dog kennels, 26 outside kennels, 8 portable kennels, grooming station, 4 suites and office amenities.

Currently only operating at half capacity which enables a new owner to be able to increase sales by implementing new marketing strategies. Growth opportunities are abundant by adding new classes, obedience training, puppy socialization and combining services for package offerings. Regulation requires that all dogs must be current with their vaccinations prior to being able to be boarded, therefore this would be an ideal opportunity for a Veterinarian to add this to their current business or for a new business owner to build relationships with Veterinarians for referral sources.
