Doggie Daycare?

Did you know that doggie daycare is a booming business? Here is a link to an article that explains about it further.

Many times I have mentioned that starting a dog-walking business would be a good business to start because there is always a need for such services. Unfortunately as much as I would like to take credit for this idea I saw somebody else suggest it.

Starting a doggie daycare business is even better. People are working so much and a lot of them don't like leaving their dogs home alone for such long periods of time. I'm sure that you would have enough customers who wouldn't mind having their dogs looked after and have their dogs in an environment where there are other dogs around them.

If you love dogs this would be a great business for you to start!

Where the doggy (and other animal) daycare services are growing. so seelingly are coinciding inductries. The world is your oyster. Reach out and create!

Holly Grant, owner of The Yellow Dog's Barn in Barrington, is a dog-owner herself, and she saw an opportunity to capitalize upon the growth in Barrington and surrounding towns by opening the first dog day care in the area.
At the age of 15, Grant began her career caring for and learning about animals while working for the North Country Animal Hospital in Lyndonville, Vt. She earned a bachelor's degree in animal science from the University of Vermont, and has worked with the Humane Society of Greater Burlington and Therapy Dogs of Vermont. Grant moved to the Seacoast and began a dog walking and pet sitting business. After two years of research and planning, she opened her dog day care business.
