Start a Wagging Tails Franchise

Wagging Tails franchise Logo

Wagging Tails franchise provides exclusive holiday care for dogs. We provide dog owners with an alternative to kennels, allowing dogs to be looked after in the homes of animal-loving carers. The Wagging Tails home-boarding service ensures that dogs will be given the highest possible level of attention and care during the absence of their owner, and that owners can enjoy their time away without worrying about their beloved pet.

Wagging Tails was established in 2007 in Surrey and was originally a small family business; however, there was so much demand for its services that the owners began franchising three years later to allow expansion. There are now over 20 Wagging Tails franchises across the UK with more growth on the horizon.

The pet care industry in the UK has proven resistant to economic difficulty, and as the number of dog owners in Britain continues to rise, so too does the earning potential of a Wagging Tails franchise.

A Wagging Tail franchise is ideal for those with a passion for pets and for building a successful business. We have franchisees from all walks of life and all stages of life from near retirement to facing redundancy to looking for a career change.

You need to have the ambition and drive to build a dog boarding business in your area. You need to have experience of and love for dogs.

The cost of a Wagging Tail franchise is £12,995+Vat; you will be required to pay an initial investment £7995+Vat, with the remain £5000 paid over of the first 4 years of the franchise term.

We are keen to speak to fellow dog lovers about the Wagging Tail franchise opportunity.
