The 2 BIG Startup Questions

These are the most important questions to ask when you are thinking about starting a boarding kennels business:

  1. Is starting a boarding kennels right for me?

  2. Where do I start to create kennels that are successful and inundated with delighted, caring clients?

Getting the Answers

What you're about to see has already helped 1193 potential kennel owners around the world.

  • 844 were thinking about starting kennels.

  • 329 already knew this was the lifestyle for them, but they needed reassurance and confirmation they're doing the right thing for themselves and their families.

  • 19 already own/run existing kennels

The above figures in purple are LIVE (real-time). Proof that this really does help people make such a big decision.

With customers all over the world, most are in the UK, USA and Canada, but also with 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 very high cost of property/ land today!).

Starting a Boarding Kennels Business

Is this YOUR dream too?

Do you dream of running your own kennels and completely changing your lifestyle and career to work with dogs?

Even today, with so much information on the internet - there is hardly any expert information on starting a kennels, and nothing else that helps you make this big decision with the depth of expertise you’re looking for.

This website is here for you if you don't know where to start and are wondering if it's the right vocation for you.

Like you, those who already had help just wanted the comfort of being walked through the early stages with expert guidance, encouragement and reassurance.

"I just wanted to say 'Thank you' for your website as now I truly feel that I can get excited about realizing my dream of running a kennels.  I feel your website gave me the right to get excited. I feel as though my long dream will come true AND I will have support from experts will achieve it."
Shelley Leahy, Co. Kerry, Ireland




Why I want to help you get it right

I'm doing it for the right reasons: animal welfare and encouraging those who truly want to make a difference.

There are many kennels who just don't care, or they have given up caring. They may have got into it for the money originally, but now it is rapidly dwindling because they didn't create a business that would work well into the future. Their premises have fallen into disrepair, smell dreadful, attract the cheapest end of the market. Quite simply, they didn't assess their suitability or do their research.

What they don't yet realise is that caring dog owners want more than that. They want gorgeous, quiet, clean and animal welfare friendly places where they can safely leave their dogs in trusted hands. With the right kinds of people. My existing clients are a testament to this!

Here for you: encouragement and support is essential to help the best people to start kennels successfully.

  1. To improving the welfare and lives of dogs with knowledge & better standard kennels.

  2. Pet owners are demanding more choice of better caring and professional kennels.

  3. To help new owners create businesses that are extraordinarily successful - much more so than typical kennels - which rewards them personally and financially for the extra-special thought and care they've invested.

"I am an RSPCA Inspector so fully understand many of the aspects covered by the course. It was really useful however, to be reminded of all the different things to consider for such a business venture. Super website, thanks. I have also purchased the book from Amazon"


Who are the right people to start kennels?

You need to be a caring person who is willing and able to invest enough time, money and thought into your business to create the best kennels you can.

Sounds simple enough doesn't it? But the world is in dire need of more people like this. If this is you, you're a rarity - but be assured that you're not alone!

You deserve every support and encouragement possible to get started - which is exactly why I created this website for you.

"Finding your website was a god-send!"
Michele Duval Lane, Cognac, France (moving to Toronto, Canada)




How to be successful and create kennels to be proud of

You have to be genuinely interested, dedicated, even passionate about learning as much as you can on dog welfare, kennels standards and the needs and desires of dog owners today.

You need to care enough to do something better, or even extraordinary as many of my dog hotel clients have done. Provide a fantastic service so that customers will do your marketing for you and recommend you to all their friends!

This is just the sort of person I want to help! Is that you?

If you 'want to do it right' (thankfully a phrase heard often!) you will be so much more successful, happy, and financially better off.

You'll be able to charge higher fees that match your higher standards, so you can build less units and spend more time with the dogs you are looking after. It's a job in a million!

Can you see how much more enjoyable and fun it will be to work this way? You'll be successful - and you will make a MUCH better income!

There just aren't enough kennels like this. When clients start up their new kennels and exceed all expectations, what happens is that their customers start booking multiple holidays immediately when they find such an inspiring, professional and caring kennels.

Is this right for me? Where do I start?

PART 1: Is it right for me?

It's a BIG decision for anyone. To change your lifestyle, your career and maybe your home, start your own business, build a special kennels building. Exciting - but a big decision! This is probably the biggest challenge and investment you will ever make - so you need to be absolutely confident.

So I created the Course with all the things you want to know about starting a kennels. But didn't stop there - the Course also includes the information to help you decide and how to feel confident it's right for you - as well as where you should start.

"It's good to know you have someone you can turn to in times of crisis or uncertainty. I shall be buying your book and no doubt visiting your site again and again, very comprehensive for beginners."
Steve Halsey, Slough (not for much longer hopefully!) UK

PART 2: Where do I start?

“I would love to open a boarding kennels to run myself.
I just don’t have a clue how to begin - HELP!!!”

If you’re feeling like this, I understand exactly the frustration you are going through right now. The same is true of any business, but particularly so for a boarding kennels, where you are caring for, and completely responsible for the dogs and puppies in your care; your home life and work are combined on one property; you need land and buildings; you're starting a business and need it to be profitable.

But hand-on-heart, the hardest part of thinking about starting a boarding kennels is just the amount of thought and research that has to go into it to make your decision, and then the frustration of not knowing where to start! If I can lessen that pain (and time) for you, then I will have helped the world achieve another high standard facility - and faster than normal.

"I didn't know how to start and you gave me a lot of things to think about!
Now I am seriously thinking about opening a kennels. I will start on my research and hope for the best! Thank you for such an informative website! It was most helpful!"
Sheri Lockhart, British Columbia, Canada

I really enjoyed the 'Where to Start', I think you have written it exceptionally well. It really made me think in depth about my own ambition to realise my dream, and to look at it from a realistic point of view, its very easy to see your dream through rose coloured glasses I think!"
