What we look for in a franchisee
Our business partners are passionate dog lovers with a propensity to work hard and follow our proven system. The vast majority of Barking Mad franchisees have enjoyed a previous career totally unrelated to dogs and have never been self-employed before. We enable them to use their existing skills to the maximum and are on hand to train and support in areas that are completely new to them. Rest assured between ourselves and the Barking Mad network there is nothing we can’t achieve together!
