Getting Answers

You can hire consultants to find you the best mortgages, loans and interest rates, but how will you find out what's happening in the kennel business, and where it makes sense for you to find your niche to increase your income as much as possible?

We're here to ensure you maximise your income - all our clients are absolutely astounded when we go through the costs and income. I can prove to you that setting up a high quality, true luxury boarding kennels or dog hotel can bring you greatest personal and financial rewards for the investment and care you put into it.

You really can do this in today's economic climate with the most enlightening inside information and guidance on being a financial success. But it just may not be in the way you envisage now, think bigger!

We have customers all over the world, most are in the UK, USA and Canada, but we also have customers in many other countries including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Norway, France, Cyprus, Spain and many others.

This information will help ALL types of kennels: boarding, rescue, quarantine, veterinary, pet and breeders.  Mostly though, our customers are caring people interested in boarding kennels as they need to 'make a living' from caring for dogs (thanks to the high cost of property/land and building costs).

What Will It Cost?

If all the unknown financial factors are delaying you, holding you back, making you uncertain - you'll LOVE this as we give you all the facts and figures you need in one place:

What Does It Cost to Build Kennels?

At this stage, you'll probably just want a ballpark figure. After all, you need to start somewhere, and you need to know whether you have enough financial resources or backing to start this adventure. But we can also help if you know roughly the size of the buildings you want, and want costs per square foot/metre:

  1. We give you the ballpark figures per kennel, based on what it costs to build TODAY (UK pounds and USA dollars only).

  2. We give you examples, cost breakdowns, and even a layout showing you the size and cost differences between the two major styles, of 10 kennels and a 10 room dog hotel.
    (We provide figures in 10's as most of our clients think of building kennels in 10's)

  3. We give you build costs per square foot/metre figure!

Are There Clever Ways to Reduce Costs?

Yes there are various ways to reduce costs, but they don't suit everyone and they should never be at the expense of the quality of the kennels you build. That would be a huge mistake for many reasons, all of which we'll explain to you.

  1. We explain the various ways you can substantially reduce costs

  2. We help you decide if the options are realistic for you

  3. We'll explain how to match the quality of your kennels with the right fees and income, and show you how much you stand to lose if your kennels are built to a lower standard

Should I Build New, or Buy an Existing Business?

You might think that there will be little financial difference between building a kennels on your property or buying an existing kennels business - but the differences can be huge, make no mistake. As long as you're prepared for them, and you know what to expect, you can avoid a major financial disaster.

Do you know what the differences are?

  1. We will tell you why some people HAVE to buy an existing business rather than build a new one.

  2. We'll tell you what the pitfalls of buying an existing business are so you can avoid them.

  3. We will tell you which types of people SHOULD build from scratch because it's the right option for them.

How Many Kennels Should I Build?

Sounds like a simple question, but the answer has a huge impact on your income - and we're not just talking about the number of kennels here, it's the quality, number of kennels in one building, number of dogs licensed for the sizes you have, how these decisions affect profitability.

We want every single new or potential kennel owner to have the best knowledge, the most up-to-the-minute market information and the biggest smile from confidence and security that only comes from proper research.

  1. We will help you to be as successful as you can be, and probably even more successful than you are imagining right now.

  2. We will explain how to work out the number of kennels you need and what the maximum number of kennels you should have in any one building is - and the myriad of reasons why and how this will benefit you not just now, but in the long run.

    We will give you LIVE statistics on how many kennels per building (minimum, average & maximum) from boarding kennels have (live figure right now) AND explains how getting the RIGHT number of kennels per building makes a HUGE difference to profit levels, dog welfare, noise, staff, visitors, and the wow factor.

    No-one else provides LIVE statistics on boarding kennels, let alone statistics on kennel numbers per building, tells you the most successful numbers, AND compares the differences!

  3. We will give you LIVE statistics on kennel numbers, and number of dogs licensed, average, minimum and maximum, from boarding kennels (live figure right now) in the UK, USA, Canada and Ireland.

    No-one else provides LIVE statistics on boarding kennels, let alone statistics on kennel numbers and number of dogs they're licensed for!

  4. We will explain how you can get the maximum income by following our single oh-so-simple easy guideline

LIVE: These figures are always live, up-to-the-second whenever you request them, and are provided by kennel owners themselves who have entered their own profiles on our www.boardingkennels.org website. It is an indepth site that was created to help our clients get new customers and bookings as soon as possible in their crucial first year of opening.

Questions You Should Be Asking About Costs

Most people assume they will need LOTS of kennels to be able to make a good income - but it's just not true, you just need to make sure you build the best kind of kennels.

But you don't have to take our word for it... Want to know what percentage % profit existing kennels make? and whether it's higher for those with more or fewer kennels? I can tell you now that the maximum profit is noticeably higher for one of them!

  1. We will show you how having fewer kennels can increase your profitability.

  2. We will give you LIVE profit statistics, average, minimum and maximum, from boarding kennels (live figure right now) in the UK, USA, Canada and Ireland.

    No-one else provides LIVE statistics on boarding kennels, let alone on their kennels profit statistics!

You're going to LOVE this if the possibility of starting kennels is something you're already excited about:

How to Earn More with Fewer Kennels

Most people assume they will need LOTS of kennels to be able to make a good income - but it's just not true, you just need to make sure you build the best kind of kennels.

But you don't have to take our word for it... Want to know what percentage % profit existing kennels make? and whether it's higher for those with more or fewer kennels? I can tell you now that the maximum profit is noticeably higher for one of them!

  1. We will show you how having fewer kennels can increase your profitability.

  2. We will give you LIVE profit statistics, average, minimum and maximum, from boarding kennels (live figure right now) in the UK, USA, Canada and Ireland.

How do quality, size and occupancy levels affect income?

Oh yes - quality, size and occupancy numbers certainly do make a difference. A huge one.

You only need to look at our easy-view income charts to show you the difference even the smallest increase in price will make to your annual income. And when we show you the difference the income the highest quality kennels will earn - it will simply blow you away!!!

It doesn't matter how many kennels you build if your occupancy rate is low - so it's important to know the relationship between number of kennels, quality and occupancy levels. How do you work it out? How about those customers with more than one dog - have you even thought about them?

  1. We'll give you easy-view income charts where you can see at a glance how typical income levels affect your bottom line - without you having to lift a finger.

  2. We'll give you easy-view occupancy level charts showing the higher quality kennels can achieve, and show you exactly how this will affect your income for the better.

  3. We'll show you the surprisingly high number of kennels who STILL don't even meet the 2 most basic dog welfare requirements of a good kennels. Such basic requirements could so easily be changed to increase their income - you will profit from this tip alone.

    Make sure you fulfil these most basic of needs to earn a better income!

  4. We'll show you the astoundingly high proportion of kennels who make the simple mistake of not building the right size and number of kennels for dog owners who have more than one dog. This lack of flexibility and planning ahead will seriously affect their building costs AND income - so ensure you do!

    Make sure you build the right size and proportion of kennels to maximise your potential - don't waste your money or risk reducing your income from the sheer lack of this vital piece of information.

  5. We will give you LIVE kennel size suitability and multi/single dog kennel statistics**, average, minimum and maximum, from boarding kennels (live figure right now) in the UK, USA, Canada and Ireland.

    No-one else provides LIVE statistics on boarding kennels, let alone on their kennels numbers and single/multi dog kennels statistics!

LIVE: These figures are always live, up-to-the-second whenever you request them, and are provided by kennel owners themselves who have entered their own profiles on our boardingkennels.org website.

What Fees Should I Charge?

This is absolutely key to your success - building kennels that allow you to have the best income with the least amount of dogs. Why is that important? Well, the fewer dogs you board, the more care and time you can take with each of them, therefore the higher income you can earn for providing such a quality, caring boarding kennels.

  1. We will show you what fees are earned by the exceptional, high and good standard kennels, and how.

  2. We will show you the HUGE differences in fees, and the IMMENSE impact what you charge has on your income. After seeing these figures we'll be absolutely astounded if you still think that lower standard kennels and fees are the way to go!

  3. We'll give you guidance on the range of kennel fees that suit higher standard kennels, whether to charge different fees for different sized dogs, whether to charge seasonal fees, how much of a percentage % to charge to reserve and secure each booking for the best occupancy rates.

  4. We'll give you case studies from real kennels, some who have only been going for a year, and are a roaring success both financially and personally for their lifestyles.

  5. We will give you LIVE kennel fees statistics, average, minimum and maximum fees for small, medium, large and giant dogs, from boarding kennels (live figure right now, and increasing every day) in the UK, USA, Canada and Ireland.

    No-one else provides LIVE statistics on boarding kennels, let alone on their kennels fees!

These figures are always live, up-to-the-second whenever you request them, and are provided by kennel owners themselves who have entered their own profiles on our boardingkennels.org website.

What Could My Income Be?

Once you know what fees you should be charging, and what your kennels will cost to build - you have the basic building blocks for your own Kennels Business Plan.

  1. We will show you what the exceptional, high and good standard kennels are earning --- how and why.

  2. We'll share with you the one very simple, so-obvious-you-probably-haven't-thought-about-it ways in which you can increase or reduce your income. No, we're not talking about offering different services or products here - but the one, most important thing that will affect your income positively or adversely, no matter how good your kennels are.

  3. We will give you a easy-autocalculating Kennels Business Plan in an Excel spreadsheet format where you simply fill in the highlighted boxes and it automatically calculates your potential income for you, first 3 years of income, shows you how to calculate your catchment area, how many customers are your potential market, a checklist for all the expenses as well as potential income.
