Franchise Opportunities

Animals at Home offer pet care services, from a small pet to a small holding, with the largest national Animal Ambulance & Pet Taxi service in the UK.

We will help you set up your own business using the tried and tested Animals at Home template, allowing you to offer real in-home alternatives to Dog Boarding Kennels, Catteries and Animal Ambulance Transport.

There is a real requirement for an Animal Ambulance/ Pet Taxi in many areas. This is used as part of the main business and did provide an essential service during COVID:19. The ambulance is equipped to transport pets safely, currently supporting the charity's StreetVets and Street Paws, in addition to it's primary day to day use.


We provide specialist personalised bespoke pet care through our Franchisees, with an intensive Training package including a City & Guilds course, a two-day Veterinary Hospital experience course and Marketing knowledge to get you underway. So, when you start your Animals at Home dog walking, pet sitting business you will have the confidence and knowledge to know that everything that you need to run the business successfully has been included.

Our Management Team will train you on how to set up a dog walking business, cat care business and general Pet Care provision business. How to engage with clients and their pets and how to manage your administration while out of the office. Using social media and software to grow your dog walking and pet care service business to your targets.



Essential skills...

Ideal franchisees are enthusiastic, energetic, organised, people who love pets and you have dreamed of working with animals, if you have the desire to provide a caring, friendly, professional pet care service that is superior to all others. We can give you the opportunity to work for yourself, but not by yourself with marketing and social media. The Pet Franchise you are building is your own, but you will not have to do it on your own, with a support team backing you up!

Daily tasks...

Collecting animals for journeys to and from the local vets, arranging the home visits for the clients wanting animals looked after at home. Daily dog walking and cat feeding jobs. The sensible use of time management to allow best routes and jobs to fit into daily workload. The confident use of the skills gained through our training if the animal ambulance is required, this is sometimes very urgent and the other tasks of the day need to be quickly rearranged to allow for emergencies.
