Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2014

Dogtopia, a leading national dog daycare, boarding and spa franchise, announced today the grand opening of its Orange County flagship store, located at 3203 South Harbor Boulevard in Santa Ana. Owned by local entrepreneur Jan Folk, the new location provides Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Tustin and Fountain Valley residents a place to take their beloved dogs for fun and supervised open play. Jan Folk is furthering her entrepreneurial spirit and love for dogs by bringing this unique business to the community.

A grand opening celebration will take place at Dogtopia of South Coast in Santa Ana on Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees can watch Founding Fido's Fashion Show presented by Dog is Good, a dog lifestyle company that creates gifts and apparel for dog lovers. There will also be an open house with tours of the daycare facility, along with local vendors, food and entertainment. Guests can also take part in a Charity Dog Wash to benefit Paws with a Cause®, a non-profit organization that provides assistance dogs to veterans and people with disabilities.

As the Orange County Regional Developer for Dogtopia, Jan Folk brings a dynamic mix of entrepreneurship and business experience combined with a history of rescuing and caring for canines. A seasoned entrepreneur and philanthropist from North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Jan is the founder of the Orange Dog Foundation, a charity started in Canada that orchestrates "Freedom Flights" transporting abandoned puppies to new homes.

“We know that people who live and work in the community are looking for a full service daycare that offers open play daycare, boarding and spa services,” said Folk. “Located in a close proximity to major freeways and John Wayne airport, we are looking forward to providing the community with a convenient, upscale environment with a dedicated staff to give canine guests the love and care they deserve during their stay.”

Since Dogtopia launched in 2002, it has grown to 31 locations with 18 additional currently under development nationwide. Two additional locations are currently under development in Orange County with plans for a total of 13 in the region.

"We are very excited to see the continued growth of Dogtopia in California with the opening in Santa Ana, and are confident that our brand has tremendous potential for success across the state," said Amy Nichols, CEO of Dogtopia. "Jan's entrepreneurial spirit and passion for animals makes her a great leader for Dogtopia of South Coast."

Dogtopia’s design and color scheme mirrors that of an upscale spa, yet is laid out in a similar manner to a children’s daycare facility, there are multiple playrooms to suit every dog’s personality and size. In addition to daycare and boarding, Dogtopia also offers a spa, self-service dog wash and a boutique to pamper dogs of all shapes and sizes.

The division of dogs between separate rooms allows Dogtopia team members to control air quality, maintain a safe environment, and provide an overall stress-free atmosphere. Dogtopia employs web camera technology in each room that allows the dogs’ owners to check on their pets during playtime. Providing additional peace of mind, the entire Dogtopia of South Coast team is trained on dog behavior and proper canine health and safety standards such as CPR and first aid.
