Business Description

High Profit pet care and dog walking. Monthly recurring business.

Dog walking service- run remotely, one hr/day. That is correct. The owner spends only 1- 1.5 hours per day running this business. If it takes up so little time, why sell- you ask? Good question. The owner would like to cash out after 20 years, and invest the profits into another venture. The business has roughly 175 accounts, and the owner has done very limited marketing in the past few years. Last year, the business generated approx. $312,687.00, with a cash flow of approx. $150,000.00. Around 95% of the accounts pay by credit card, so there is an easily-verifiable paper trail. There are currently four F/T and six P/T employees, who all work on a 1099 basis. There is great upside in the densely-populated metro area that the business currently services. We are seeking a serious and financially qualified buyer with at least $300K in liquid funds to cover the down payment.

ACT FAST! Let the dogs out!! This business is priced to sell and will go quick. Own your own business working with those you love...pets. And this industry is hitting all-time highs. That coupled with the record breaking growth of the Boston area proves that this is a huge opportunity, providing in-home Pet Sitting, Dog Walking and Vacation Services. This is a huge opportunity to harness growth, have an active, enjoyable profession and be in control of your own destiny!

Established over 20 years ago, the business has a loyal and established monthly recurring base of customers. Company has a high profit margin. The company services its customers with a staff of over 10 + dog walkers and Pet sitting professionals, many who have worked for the owner since the start of the business.
