About We Love Pets Ltd

We Love Pets

Company Overview

We Love Pets provide a wide range of services in the growing pet market including dog walking, dog boarding, dog day care, puppy visits, pet sitting, pet visits and small animal and horse care.

Franchise Overview

Our pet services are provided through a network of 14 branches across the UK. All of the branches operate under a franchise scheme so that the franchisee gets the benefit and support of working with a recognised brand whilst retaining their own independence. We’ve been franchising since 2014 and already have 14 branches, all of which are happy and successful. We have had no resales or exits, and every franchisee’s turnover is increasing month on month.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

A typical day includes answering emails and checking the team schedule for the day whilst drinking your morning coffee. You’ll then either walk some dogs or meet staff for a coffee and catch-up, followed by a few early evening customer visits then perhaps an hour on admin tasks. All this is fitted round existing family life.
