Business Description

A pet lovers dream and a tremendous opportunity to own a well-known and very popular Doggy Day Care & Pet Boarding facility in Fairfax County, VA! The business was established in 1972 and has experienced stable revenue and cash flow year over year due to its prime location, excellent service and care, and competitive pricing. The staff prides themselves on providing a safe and stress-free environment for all kinds of pets and their owners. The team is made up of caring and experienced professionals that can answer any question and handle a variety of special needs. The business has zero restrictions based on size, age, spay/neuter status, or breed.

The business currently has 4 profit centers, boarding, doggy day care, grooming and retail product sales. A new owner can add additional revenue streams like Pet Therapy as well as Training and Obedience Classes. Currently the business’s revenue primarily comes from boarding services for dogs, cats, birds, as well as small and exotic animals. The business is fully equipped with approximately 113 dog kennels, 20 cat kennels, 28 runs, an indoor open play area and an outdoor area for walking and play time as well as tubs for washing. The business currently has 1 grooming room with holding kennels, but there is room for more grooming stations if a new owner wishes to expand grooming services which would be a great way to bring in a whole new client base that would then utilize the other services the business provides.

The current owner has operated the business since 2014 creating and implementing strong systems and processes that are effective and contributed to the businesses great reputation, many satisfied customers, success and profitability while also reinvesting into the business. The owner loves the business and didn’t think of selling it so soon as it is a cash cow, but they are very motivated to sell due to their ownership in another business that prevents them from providing the time and attention they each need. If you're a dog lover or just love having fun and making money don't let this business pass you by as it won't last long!
