Share Article

Local couple gets bit helping pets, Jerry and Melanie Gore quit the life of leisure and open Preppy Pet Suites, a preppy theme based doggie daycare and pet boarding facility featuring "All Day Play." The business is so successful that now they are franchising their concept.

Jerry and Melanie Gore had just sold a Bed & Breakfast with a farm in Maryland and then bought a boat to cruise the Caribbean. Both were still in their 40's and were embarking on every Americans dream--a life of leisure in the south seas of the Atlantic, but after a year, they just got bored they said.

They had been running their own business for years and the quiet life just wasn't for them. By 2003 they found a new niche, playing surrogate "Mom & Dad" to 100 playful dogs.

The Gore's have been so successful with "Preppy Pet Suites." Now they've decided to share the business model through franchising.

"Every week we have guests commenting, 'I would love a business like this,'" says Melanie. Now after months of preparing detailed manuals and fine-tuning every detail of the business, the Gores are ready to train others to care for the Preppy Pet's in their neighborhood. They believe franchisees will love their job and make a profit.

The Preppy theme-based concept is fun. Dogs play all day in the Racquet Club, Yacht Club or Country Club while being monitored by staff and even viewed guests via the web cam. They then retire to their own custom suite or share with other family members at night in "Martha's Vineyard" or "The Hamptons," with TV or soft music playing.

"Every family's own pet is special and the traditional kennels and vets cages are just not acceptable any longer, and our guests expect much more, all still at a reasonable cost," notes Jerry.

Stay the Preppy Pet Way with All Day Play is now going nationwide and Preppy Pet Franchise's goal is to "Provide Pet Lovers a Fun, Affordable and Profitable Franchise."
