A pet sitting and dog walking business in Pennsylvania recently announced a licensing program targeting entrepreneurs who want to start their own business.
Sleepy Paws Pet Care was founded by Kim and Dave Westwood in 2009 and is a pet sitting company located servicing clients in the Downington, Exton, and surrounding Pennsylvania areas. For entrepreneurs wanting to capitalize on the trend of pet sitting and dog walking, Sleepy Paws Pet Care’s licensing program requires no upfront fees.
Dave Westwood, Vice President of Marketing and Licensing of Pet and Home LLC, shared, “The Sleepy Paws Pet Care licensing program gives someone starting out in the pet sitting industry the tools and resources needed to start and run a pet sitting or dog walking business. This program is also ideal for the local pet sitter or dog walker who has a love for animals, but could use help with marketing and branding to grow their business.”
Benefits that licensees will receive include no franchise feel, a toll-free number for their customers, a flat fee monthly royalty starting at $79 per month, a Sleepy Paws branded website search engine optimized for their trade area, additional marketing support via Twitter and Facebook, Google Places and Yahoo Local set up, and more.
Sleepy Paws was a finalist for the Philadelphia area’s top pet sitting company contest in both 2010 and 2011 as sponsored by PHL17 Hot List. Sleepy Paws began licensing regional territories through the country in 2012 and their goal is to empower others to start their own low investment, home-based business.
One license will be awarded to someone that is royalty-free for the first six month, and Sleepy Paws is also offering discounted royalty rates to licensees that are approved between June 1 and July 15, 2012.
