Questions about Leader of the Pack Pet Care Franchise?

What experience do I need to become a Leader of the Pack Canine Institute Dog Daycare franchise owner?

While we welcome pet industry professionals, such as veterinarians looking to expand their practices into related areas with an add-on training, boarding and grooming business, our pack leaders are not required to have prior pet industry experience. More than anything, we are looking for pet aficionados with some prior business and/or staff management experience. Our dog daycare franchise and pet business owners in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware must be calm and confident and appreciate the pet/owner relationship. Most of all, they must love dogs, be enthusiastic about the brand and willing to follow the Leader of the Pack business model. In exchange, we’ll provide the training, tools, and recipes you need to open your dog daycare and pet care franchise in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Delaware, and operate it effectively.

What is provided as part of the Leader of the Pack opportunity?

We offer complete initial training at both corporate headquarters and onsite at your location, covering key topics such as operations, marketing, training, and more. We will help layout your 8,000 – 16,000 sq. foot space, set up your web cam system, assist with your initial inventory and more. You’ll never feel left out in the cold with Leader of the Pack. You’ll also receive a copy of our confidential manual to help guide your daily business operations.

How much will the Leader of the Pack Canine Institute program investment cost me?

The total initial investment necessary to begin operations ranges from $341,665 to $647,304 for a start-up franchise. This includes a $35,000 initial franchise fee. As with any new venture, it’s important to have adequate capital to fund the initial business growth stages.

Is financing available?

No. We do not provide direct financing to franchisees, but we may refer to financing sources on a case by case basis.

Are there ongoing fees to pay?

We charge a royalty fee equal to 6% of gross sales, or a minimum flat fee, whichever is greater.

These fees allow us to fund our ongoing support services and the continued development of business tools, training programs, and systems upgrades.

Are there any advertising fees?

Franchisees are required to spend 2% of gross revenues monthly on local marketing and promotions in their territory and contribute up to 2% of gross revenues into the brand development fund. Collected funds will be used to develop marketing strategies to promote the Leader of the Pack Canine Institute brand and fund the creative costs to develop local marketing materials and campaigns.

    Turn your love of dogs into a thriving business


    I can’t say enough good things. My dog has been an out of control problem child for the past 3 years I’ve had her. I’ve tried other trainers and multiple methods. I had one training session here a few days ago and the change has been absolutely remarkable. The pup and I still have a long way to go, but I know that we will be doing all of our future training here. They really took the time to listen about the issues I’ve been having and gave me very well thought out courses of action. I can’t wait for us to do a group class.

    Lisa and the entire staff are incredible to work with, and truly care about each dog’s well being in and out of their facility. Their facility is clean and well managed, and the services offered are reasonably priced. Lisa goes above and beyond the typical dog trainer and business owner role, which shows her commitment and passion for well balanced dogs and pack leaders.
