This Boarding and Grooming service was started in 1986 and has built a strong and reputable business over the years. They currently offer boarding services with the ability to board dogs (including aggressive dogs) and cats. They have a quiet setting for boarding services and a large outdoor area for walking the dogs. The business has a very good relationship with veterinary clinics in the area and offers transport services if desired. They require proof of current vaccinations.
Currently, the business offers part-time grooming services on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but they have the facilities and equipment available for someone to provide full-time services.
The Owners are only interested in selling the business and the property together. The property is listed for sale for the amount of $600,000 and $150,000 for the business for a combined listed sale price of $750,000.
The property consists of a 6,772 sq ft building that offers indoor/outdoor kennels and is located in a semi-private setting away from high traffic areas. They are also able to board aggressive dogs if needed without handling them, due to the pulleys on the dog doors. Several area rescue organizations choose to use their kennel when they need to board animals. Their cat condos are custom built to remove dividers between enclosures so that cats from the same family can mingle. There is a large 2 bdrm 1 bath apartment in the building, along with 2 heated garage stalls. The land size is a total of 2.75 total acres and is zoned Commercial. Brad Sturn - ND Real Estate #6746
Their location and acreage would provide space and opportunities for other services, such as dog training or a private dog exercise park. They have a small pet cemetery on site, which is a need for the area, but they closed this service several years ago, due to the time and care that it requires. Retail sales would also be a potential revenue source. Adding a full-time groomer could be an immediate and profitable addition to the business, and a doggy daycare could easily be added as well. The are located close to the industrial park area, which has over 10,000 workers daily. There is also potential for apartment rental income, it is currently vacant, but they have had renters in the past.
When they started in 1986, there were no other kennels or doggy daycares in the area. Many daycares have opened since then and a few others offer boarding services.
The current owners are looking to retire and currently work less than 10 hours per week, they take care of the bookkeeping, pay bills, interview/hire, pick up supplies, some general maintenance and mowing/snow removal.
Will train for 2 weeks @ no cost. There are no licenses required other than a City Kennel License, which is $35 per year.
