Dogs Love Running!, a unique pet franchise focusing on helping pets live longer and behave better through exercise, is now expanding to multiple states across the nation, including those along the east coast.
“We’ve had an enormous response from states like Florida and North and South Carolina without even advertising there”, says John Reh, president of the company. “We’re based in Chicago and have a lot of brand recognition here already. But, because we’ve had so much interest from other states, we’re expanding our dog walking franchise opportunity into other areas of the country where we can establish our identity in those places as well.”
Dogs Love Running! is typically categorized as a “dog walking and pet sitting” company. Although they do provide those services, what makes them different is that they also provide a “dog running” service. Just like it sounds, they’ll literally go out and run with clients’ dogs.
“We have lots of clients with very active dogs that just don’t get enough exercise with a standard walk around the block. That’s where we can help," Reh says.
With visits lasting 15, 30, 45, or even 60 minutes, the company provides a custom-tailored program so that just about any dog can get the exercise he/she both wants and needs.
“We make walking and running pet visits all year long,” says the company president. “Even with the cold winter temperatures and snow, we’re out and about with the dogs unless there’s a dangerous weather condition.”
One of the reasons that Dogs Love Running! is interested in finding franchisees in the southeast part of the nation is because of the desirable climate that mostly eliminates the inconvenience of being outside on super-cold days. John says that “with winter weather being relatively mild in those areas, it makes being outside easier and generally more fun for both us and the dogs.”
Aside from the regions that are typically warmer all year long, Dogs Love Running! is also looking to expand into additional parts of the eastern US such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maine, and others.
“Many heavily-populated urban areas along the east coast fit the mold of what we generally look for in a suitable location.” He states that they have tools and data to help prospective franchisees evaluate their local territory based on population density, demographic characteristics, and other traits that help to give an idea of what type of demand there may be in a particular location.
John adds that “we’re very excited to branch out beyond our mid-western roots and introduce our brand of doggy healthcare to a lot more people and their pets.”
