We Love Pets Ltd

We Love Pets

Company Overview

For over ten years We Love Pets have been providing dog walking and pet sitting services to thousands of happy customers. They are a family business with people and their pets at the heart of what we do.

We Love Pets is an award-winning, bfa accredited, company in the pet franchise market and have been rated in the top 7% by Elite Franchising.

Franchise Overview

Our franchisees wanted to leave their employment behind to become their own boss while working with animals and getting a better work life balance. All our franchisees are successful and happy – just ask them!

They enjoy our unrivalled support from our team of business, marketing and pet experts, vet nurse and solicitor. We are also the only franchisor to offer the City & Guilds dog walking and pet sitting qualification (in partnership with Wiltshire College). 

Our business model and customer website works so well (we should know, it’s been running successfully for over ten years) that we guarantee to return franchise fees if franchisees don’t get enough customer enquiries.

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, lunch (sometimes on the go!) and then some more walks or pet visits. An hour or two on admin tasks followed by a few early evening customer visits are typical. All this is fitted round existing family life.
