  • “Dogtopia married my passion for business and my love for dogs, and it was a match made in heaven.”

    - Joni Elder, Multi-Unit Franchisee

    Joni Elder, Franchisee
  • “Our group was drawn to the pet industry due to its fragmented competitive landscape, the powerful non-cyclical trajectory of secular growth trends driven by the humanization of pets, and the deeply entrenched position they have assumed in the modern American family. We partnered with Dogtopia due to the sophisticated technology systems and operating standards they provide franchisees as well as their commitment to be the branded category leader in dog daycare, providing best in class service to dogs and their pet parents, while aligning the unit economics of their facilities in accordance with that ambition.”

    - Chris Kempner, Chairman & Multi-Unit Franchisee
