Located in a rural setting on 10+ acres of rolling property consisting of an owner’s residence, plus 5900 sq. ft. (combined) kennel buildings, pole barn construction, concrete floors, heated and air-conditioned, all updated and well maintained. Fenced outdoor play areas with either seal-coated concrete or pea gravel. All buildings are fully utilized with room available for new construction to support growth and expansion.
There are a number of possibilities for future expansion. With considerable open acreage, a new owner may consider adding more boarding space and include indoor play/training center. Increasing the day care program, adding obedience or other specialty training programs either under a ‘class’ format or as a component of boarding and day care could prove to be a solid growth strategy. In addition, adding grooming, Spa Services with pet massage, chiropractic, hot oil treatments, etc. could build the business beyond current levels.
The retiring owner is willing to provide transitional training for the new owner and could be available on a part time basis for special needs.
Business is currently closed. All facilities and permits remain in place and employees are believed to be available for re-hire. The full-time manager and several longer-term employees have invested a lot of personal time and effort to know each pet and any special needs.
