(as of [price_update_date] – Details)
Do you love animals? Are you looking for a career that is recession-proof and always in demand? Would you like to be your own boss? You should start a pet hotel business!
I have been in the pet care industry for over a decade. I first started working as a receptionist in my uncle’s veterinary clinic at age 18. I had owned dogs and cats in my childhood but never thought about making it a career.
When I was thinking about college, I realized that becoming a vet technician was a viable option. When my uncle retired and sold his practice, I worked with the new vet as a tech for a few years. We found ourselves with frequent requests to board animals for the short-term. Usually, these requests came from pet owners who were our usual vet clients going out of town for a few days at a time. We took these dogs and cats in for mostly weekends and holidays. I realized that in my area, the need for quality pet boarding was essential.
I started my own pet boarding business out of an old daycare building. The daycare had been closed down for a while, but it had easily convertible facilities for pet boarding. The building had a nearly commercial-sized kitchen and 4 different classrooms, each with its own attached bathroom. It also had a large fenced-in yard which used to have playground equipment and big indoor community space, presumably for assemblies or indoor playtime. A building originally built to house children during the day was easily converted to a building intended to house cats and dogs.
My pet boarding business was born on a shoestring budget. In this book, I will show you how to start your own pet hotel from the ground up. This book comes from my personal experiences combined with research that I conducted while starting out years ago.
