Woofie’s Launches Franchises In East Coast Expansion

Fifteen years after setting up the innovative pet sitting, dog walking, and mobile pet spa company in Ashburn, Woofie’s is expanding with plans to license at least five franchisee-owned locations this year.

The owners expect the company’s specialized approach to serving the needs of pet owners to be in demand in other markets.

         “It’s about providing a highly-personalized pet care service to clients while emphasizing a relationship built on convenience, trust and peace of mind. We strive to ensure that every customer experience is an exceptional one, which is why we’ve focused on building a model that positions our franchisees for success,” stated Co-founder and co-ownerAmy Reed.

Woofie’s offers personalized pet sitting and dog walking services that includes consultations with a member of the management team, in-home overnight care and bed and biscuit overnight care. Their mobile pet spa provides one-on-one, cage-free grooming services such as: breed-specific haircuts, nail trims, hydrosurge baths and specialized de-matting and de-shedding treatments.

“As pet owners ourselves, Amy and I saw a need for professional pet care services in our local market,” stated co-founder and co-owner Leslie Barron. “Compared to other app-based services, Woofie’s offers unparalleled customer service and individualized focus for each pet in our care.”

Including a franchise fee of $37,500, the initial investment necessary to open a single location ranges between $102,000 and $172,000. Each Woofie’s franchise will employ a team of pet sitters, dog walkers, mobile groomers and back-office administrators.
