ESSENTIAL SERVICES PROVIDE COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Dogtopia is featured in the Jan/Feb 2021 issue of Franchise Canada Magazine as one of five “Essential Service Franchises”
Creating supportive relationships is certainly key to Dogtopia’s mission. “Happy, healthy pups are the heart of who we are and Dogtopia has a passion for caring for dogs,” shares Kim Hamm, president and CEO of Dogtopia Canada. “We’ve proudly created a dog daycare environment for anyone who thinks of their dog like family, with unparalleled safety standards and exceptional daycare, boarding, grooming, and spa services.”
As an essential service, Dogtopia views their ability to serve their communities as a responsibility. “Dogtopia was listed as an essential service throughout Canada, providing for the health and welfare of animals. We were able to provide daycare to our existing pet parents, but also to te dogs of many essential and frontline workers who were working hard to protect and service Canadians,” shares Hamm.
“We are all in the unchartered territory and adjusting to new norms,” says Hamm, “but as ambassadors of our Dogtopia brand, we commit to executing the highest level of safety while proactively providing support, consistent communication, and a unified front to our pet parents during this time of uncertainty.” Not only is cooperation with the community key to a successful franchise, but also effective communication and collaboration with other franchisees and teams.
“At Dogtopia, we approach the franchise relationship with the spirit of partnership and respect. As an industry leader in the pet care sector and an innovator with the support of a strong brand and team in North America, our franchisees receive the utmost support and guidance each day,” Hamm says, referring to the vital ongoing conversations about best practices around the world. “We have continued to grow closer and more unified as a team, as we continue to weather the storm together.”
