Property Features and Assets:

Founded in South East Georgia in 2015, this business has a service area that includes from Darien, GA to Saint Simons and Brunswick, GA. Growth has been fueled by competitors because of their low ethical standards meaning that every new relationship is a secure and lasting one. Why do we mention ethical standards? Unlike their direct competitors (and some veterinarians) in the area this business does not cage its clients’ canines full-time meaning that they actively engage each dog that comes through the door as if it were their own dog. The location has been in business for 3 years and counting. In 2016, they had a gross of $139,082.96 with a DE of $60,378.52. For any potential buyers, this business offers employees in-place, flexible working hours with the choice to makeup one’s schedule, a great location with room to expand, and excellent opportunities to grow the business either by offering additional services or growing the current location, plus several, strong relationships that regularly use the pet daycare facility.

Market Competition and Expansion:

“Top Dog Daycare and Boarding Industry Trends for 2018 Thriving in a competitive pet-care market requires you to stay on-top and ahead of the key trends in professional pet-care. Help ensure your professional and business' success by anticipating and acting on important trends in dog daycare, boarding, grooming and training industry. Yes, we all know that pet-ownership is on the rise, and that 'millennials' are driving pet ownership trends, but we noted a couple key pet-care business specific trends mentioned by Compiantia (a retail audit software company) and others that are worth reviewing. PET OWNERS ARE INCREASINGLY TECH-SAVVY It's no secret those so-called millennials are driving pet ownership, and those potential customers of yours are also 'tech-savvy'. Millennials aside, most pet owners today expect easy online interaction with your business and services - even 'boomers'! If you don't have a user-friendly integrated online reservation system and software, you are losing business. Simple as that. Online booking, automated sms reminders, digital report cards and other online digital interactions enhance your customer-service experience, and demonstrate to your customers that you are up-to-date on technology. This helps instill trust that you are up-to-date in other areas of your business as well. BRICK AND MORTAR MATTERS Compliantia notes that, even as "(o)nline pet-supply retailers are quick to capitalize on the pet food segment ... veterinary care remains second in spending categories. Moreover, the tendency to treat pets a family has consumers seeking out new and better services." (Source) The way to compete is to provide great facility-based services that can never be replaced by online or in-home services. Pet's deserve to get out of the house and socialize, and need that steady attention and care that only brick-and-mortar pet care businesses can provide. Capitalize on this trend by creating the best 'in-store' experience you possibly can for your customers. This includes ensuring your facility has great 'curb appeal'. Educate your staff so that they are knowledgeable not only about their jobs, but about current pet-care issues so they can help your customers. This helps build trust and goodwill for your company. "PREMIUM-IZATION" FranchiseHelp.com reminds us that premium services do well in pet-care. "Organic and natural treats and foods, high-tech medical therapies and medicines, luxury services and even spas – nothing is too good! Businesses that cater to these niche products and services are booming!" (Source). Indeed, may successful dog daycare and boarding facilities target the 'premium service' model with premium lodging units, extra add-on services (either included in premium pricing, or as a la carte services). The "premium experience" is further supported by the other items in this article: good technology, outstanding facility customer experiences and professional development of your staff. Many pet-care business consultants and industry organizations can help you with your business model in developing premium service models for your customers' pets. Contact IBPSA to get started! PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND CERTIFICATION IN PET-CARE SERVICES If 2018 is the year of anything in professional pet care, it's the year of professional development and certification of facility-based pet-care professionals. The Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC) is offering up an ambitious schedule of staff training and certification programs this year, and expects to award a record number of certificates to professionals who demonstrate excellence in pet-care. Professional certification is one of the leading trends that sets facility-based pet-care apart from random 'pet-sitters' and 'dog-walkers' competing to deliver quality pet-care. Helping your staff obtain professional 3rd-party training and certification will help establish your business as a superior service to any in-home service option, and will help set you apart from any other facility in your market. We make no predictions with these trends, but that the future is bright for any pet-care facility that continues to update operating systems and technology, while offering the best customer- and pet-experiences possible, and while investing in staff training and certifications. https://www.gingrapp.com/blog/2018/3/12/top-professional-pet-care-industry-trends-for-2018 “Pet Care Industry Analysis 2018 - Cost & Trends” Well over half of the households in the United States own a pet – almost 80 million homes! Man’s best friend might be the most iconic, but our taste in pets is both varied and dynamic. But whether it’s a dog, cat, horse, bird, fish, or lizard – pets need to eat. They need to be kept clean, and have a place to sleep. Pets need to be cared for – and with over 300 million pets in the US that makes for a booming business. But it’s not just the basic care requirements of our non-human family that is driving strong growth in the pet industry. Strong economic conditions, the demographics of our (human) population, and a growing body of medical research pointing to the health benefits of pet ownership are all contributing to continued strength. And perhaps as important as all of these is the fact that people do not just care for their pets – they pamper them. What is the pet industry? As of 2015, 65% of households in the US own at least one pet, and the pet industry is made up of the products and services that keep these pets alive, healthy and happy – food, toys, daycare, training, beds, cages, medical services and a lot more. And, being honest, the pet industry in the United States is keeping pet owners happy as well. After all, no dog feels sad without the latest Juicy Couture sweater – but some some of their owners might. While pets are found in households of all economic levels, high-income households account for about 60% of the total spending. Large corporations such as Petsmart and Petco are the most well-recognized businesses, but there are also an enormous amount of small businesses, franchises, and sole proprietorships. They are found in cities, suburbs and in the deep country. And perhaps more so than in many other industries, there are countless “off-the-books” dog walkers and pet sitters offering services to their friends, families and local networks. What are the numbers? According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), revenue in the pet industry is expected to be $62.75 billion in 2016, an increase of more than 4% over 2015. The average annual growth rate since 2002 is 5.4%, and revenue has been growing steadily for well over 20 years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, above average job growth is expected for the industry – 11% growth between 2014 and 2024. Logically, food is the largest spending segment, followed by veterinary care. Within each segment, however, there is quite a degree of variability in the type, quality and price of goods and services. Revenue by Segment Food • 2015: $23.05 billion • 2016 (estimated): $24.01 billion Supplies/OTC Medicine • 2015: $14.28 billion • 2016 (estimated): $14.98 billion Vet Care • 2015: $15.42 billion • 2016 (estimated): $15.92 billion Live animal purchases • 2015: $2.12 billion • 2016 (estimated): $2.11 billion Pet services: grooming & boarding • 2015: $5.41 billion • 2016 (estimated): $5.73 billion Trends driving pet industry growth There are a number of trends supporting strong growth in the industry and they show no signs of slowing down. Humanization Many types of pets have long been considered part of the family, but in recent years that has started to translate to actually treating pets more like people – a trend called “humanization.” Pet owners are seeking out higher quality foods, more high-end accessories and more expensive medical treatments. Largely gone are the days of “outside dogs” that just “see to themselves.
