Share Article

For the first time, Fetch! Pet Care, the nation’s largest pet care franchise, renews a local franchise. Owned and operated by Randy Ring, the Missouri franchise opened his first location in 2005 and will provide dog walking and pet sitting services to the entire St. Louis metro area for another 10 years.

"Fetch! has exceeded all of my expectations!" says Randy Ring, owner of Fetch! Pet Care servicing the St. Louis Metro area.

2015 was a big year for Randy Ring who recently celebrated 10 years as a Fetch! Pet Care franchisee in the St. Louis metro area. It was also the year that he decided to extend his local franchise business ownership for an additional 10 years. With the announcement now being made public, it is noted that Ring’s decision marks the first franchise renewal for Fetch! Pet Care, Inc. which was started as a local dog walking and pet sitting service in 2002.

Ring will continue as a franchisee with the nationwide brand because, according to him, “Fetch! has exceeded all of my expectations.” As a local owner, he has benefited from ongoing training, education and support in a recession resistant business, which also provides national and local marketing support.

Being part of a strong, recognizable brand is just one reason why Ring originally chose to purchase his franchise. According to the 2015-2016 American Pet Products Association’s National Pet Owners Survey, pets currently reside in over 79 million American households. In realizing the growing magnitude of pet ownership early on, Ring’s primary goal was to impact his community by providing a quality and reliable pet sitting service, which he has now enjoyed doing for an entire decade.

With the continued success of his business, Ring is renewing because of the company’s outstanding communication, support, systems, processes and procedures, all which help him provide superior service throughout his territories. “Owning your own business is always a challenge, but Fetch! gives me the tools I need to succeed. I am more optimistic than ever about my future with Fetch! and I look forward to many more years of continued success”, says Ring about the decision to renew his franchise operation for another decade. With a background in advertising, publishing, lending and management, Ring further attributes the local operation’s success to his sales experience prior to becoming a franchisee.

Paul Mann, Founder and President, shares that, “It has been a delight working with Randy over the past decade, and we are all proud of the outstanding pet care service he and his staff have provided to his community I’m excited by this great milestone for both the Fetch! Pet Care brand and Randy as he renews for another 10 years, and look forward to witnessing his continued business growth over the next decade.”

Ring started his franchise in June of 2005 in St. Louis, Missouri initially serving the metro area which includes Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, Saint Louis, Clayton, Richmond Heights, Webster Groves, Kirkwood, Ladue, Crestwood, Sunset Hills, University City, Des Peres, Olivette, Creve Coeur, Maplewood and Brenton. He purchased a second franchise in 2014 enabling him to include West St. Louis County which services Ballwin, Eureka, Fenton, Glencoe, Grover, High Ridge, Pacific, Saint Albans, Valley Park and Manchester.

Each Fetch! Pet Care location maintains Pet Care Coordinators who personally match each client to the most qualified dog walker or pet sitter on staff. In keeping with the national brand’s standards, all of Ring’s dog walkers and pet sitters are background checked, bonded and insured, and come with glowing reviews and a satisfaction guarantee of high quality service. Currently employing approximately 60 local dog walkers and pet sitters, Ring’s Fetch! Pet Care franchise will continue to provide valuable and in-demand pet care services such as dog walking, pet sitting, private boarding, pet taxiing and day care to residents throughout his service area.
