Franchise Opportunities for Home Boarding – Dogs
A Barking Good Opportunity!
Creature Comforts was set up in 2005 to provide an alternative to kennels for dog owners who wanted to go away on holiday, business or indeed any occasion where their dog would be unable to accompany them.
The business was started by Ailsa Price, herself the owner of two miniature dachshunds. Ailsa wanted to go on holiday but was reluctant to leave them in kennels as they were very much part of the family and such an environment would cause them undue stress.
The aim of Creature Comforts is to provide a personal and loving environment for your dog while their owners are away. We will care for your dog as you would, keeping the disruption of their routine to a minimum.
We endeavour to make their stay as enjoyable as possible, so they will want to come back and stay with their second family time and time again.
The business was an instant success and gave so many dog owners a new lease of life as many had not been away for years as they did not want to leave their dogs in kennels.
The service gave dog owners such peace of mind as they also got to meet with the host family designated to care for their dog prior to commencement of the booking.
This is invaluable to dog owners as it is important to them that they get to meet the person who will be caring for their dog.
