The Opportunity

Real estate locations

We make it easy for new franchisees to find the perfect location to launch their business. Since opening in 2002, we have years of experience in launching new franchise locations. We ensure that each location is equipped with modern facilities that provide a safe and open-play environment for dogs to socialize and interact with our caring team of Canine Coaches.

The criteria for a successful Dogtopia location includes:

  • 3,500 – 12,000 square feet
  • Option to include outdoor play area for the dogs
  • Preferred co-tenants include grocery, daily needs and other service related businesses
  • Strong residential population density
  • Strong daytime/workplace population
  • Above average household income as compared to DMA average
  • Daycare and boarding use allowed by right or by way of Special Use Permit

The Dogtopia Foundation enables dogs to positively change the world. To accomplish this, we currently are funding programs focused around three worthy causes: Service Dogs for Veterans, Youth Literacy Programs and Employment Initiative for Adults with Autism.
