AN EARLY PIONEER
Dogtopia is a unique dog daycare business which opened its first location in Virginia in 2002. At that time, dog daycare was very much a new concept, and the Dogtopia approach – to create “indoor dog parks” and provide a daytime service for dog care along the lines of a children’s daycare – was extremely innovative. Since then, the idea of taking man’s best friend to doggie daycare has gained widespread popularity.
Dogtopia has a passion for caring for dogs. Happy, healthy pups are the heart of who we are. We’ve proudly created a loving environment with unparalleled safety standards and exceptional daycare, boarding, spa and grooming/training services.

“Dogtopia married my passion for business and my love for dogs, and it was a match made in heaven.” - Joni Elder
“We are the Nordstrom of dog daycare.” - Amber Sutton
“After being in the business world for 37 years, opening a Dogtopia daycare center was such a different path and one that I was excited to embark on. It has been more than rewarding and exciting. It is a totally different form of business ownership and the most rewarding is getting to know the pet parents and of course each dog. Dogtopia is the best way to operate a business while enjoying life; every day when I enter the store I am happy and excited to see our furry family members.” - Jan Folk
“The system at Dogtopia worked extremely well for my team. I’m already exploring a site for a second store months earlier than I anticipated.” - Paul Sandry
“Our group was drawn to the pet industry due to its fragmented competitive landscape and 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 day care, 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 (signed 20-store development agreement).
