FIND A DOG BOARDER

START YOUR OWN

A home dog boarding business is becoming a serious proposition that many dog lovers are starting to take up. There are many good reasons for wanting to start your own home boarding business, the most popular being that it means you can give up your day job and run your own business from home doing something you love – working with dogs.

A dog boarding business is an excellent opportunity for many to start their own business with a relatively low start-up cost. There are over 8 Million dogs currently in the UK and many dog owners have to work long hours meaning that hiring doggie day care is becoming an essential part of their daily lives, and also dog owners who go on holiday are no longer happy to place their beloved dog into kennels-  so now is an excellent time to start up a home dog boarding business of your own.

In London and the South of England particularly dog owners are willing to pay £20-£25 a day for home dog boarding for a first dog and usually around £15.00 for a second.

There are no pre-requisites for home dog boarding but a genuine love for dogs is a must, together with a good level of physical fitness if you are offering a dog walking service are probably the most important. You will need some experience before you start either by owning your own dogs or from caring for other peoples.  

Some of the things you will need to consider before starting your business is your business name, home boarding business forms and contracts, dog boarding business insurance, a local authority licence, a website, flyers, how you will get work, prices you will charge, pet sitting software – our sister website NarpsUK can provide all of these things for you.

It is a rewarding job for a dedicated pet lover who is well-organised, professional and ready to run a business.

START YOUR OWN

DOG BOARDING BUSINESS

Your dog will be much happier either staying in its own home with a live in pet sitter or in a pet sitter's home with a family environment where he will receive lots of tender loving care and attention. Your pet sitter will follow your feeding & exercise instructions, allowing your pet to follow the routine they are used to at home. When boarding in the sitter's home, be sure to ask if they are licensed by their local authority.   If you are using a dog walker to come to your home to pet sit or for dog walking purposes, be sure to ask to see their Criminal Record Check certificate if they will be holding a set keys to your home.  

FIND A LOCAL DOG BOARDER

Getting fully insured is essential, not only for the sake of your clients, but also for your own protection. Dog walking insurance is fairly specialised and there are only really a few companies in the UK who provide it. NarpsUK is perhaps one of the best options for those just starting out as it is a professional and popular membership organisation and membership entitles you to various helpful resources as well as discounted pet sitting insurance. - See more at: www.narpsuk.co.uk
