Become A Franchisee

What FlipFlop® Dogs Offers is Unique

 

We are… A home-based business opportunity in the fast growing pet industry, backed by an established marketing strategy that creates lifelong customers.  The best businesses are born from a market need, and FlipFlop Dogs is no exception. Many dog owners just can’t bring themselves to leave their pups in a kennel when they are away. They don’t want to impose on family and friends, and they don’t feel comfortable having a stranger enter their home to pet sit. This is where the FlipFlop Dogs franchise system comes in.

FlipFlop Dogs, LLC. offers a market-tested business opportunity that allows our franchisees to establish and manage their own successful business. If you love dogs and working from home, being your own boss and controlling your own schedule, a FlipFlop Dogs franchise could be a perfect match for you!

    • Sophia is calm and normal..we're snuggling in the chair and watching TV. Thanks again for helping to make one aspect (and a very important one!) of this mini-vacation go smoothly..

      —Patti C.

    • Danielle,  I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for all that you have done for us and, more importantly, our dogs.  As you know, our dogs are very much apart of our family and when Morgan was diagnosed with oral cancer, we were devastated. He completely shocked everyone by living 6 months longer than expected.  During his last months you provided such amazing care to both him and Lexy while we were away.  You treat our dogs as if they were your own... with amazing love and affection.  We are so glad we found FlipFlop!.

    • I love that FlipFlop® provides the Call Center to handle incoming inquiries and bookings in a timely professional manner leaving me to focus on my favorite aspects of the business.  I enjoy spending time pampering my customers, working with Companion Families and being at so many great dog events.  My favorite moment is when I pick up a customer’s dog and he is so excited that he runs to my Transit body jiggling, tail wiggling because he knows that he is going somewhere fun.  Customers always say the same thing.  They just can’t believe that their dog is so happy that he didn’t even stop to say goodbye. .

      —Danielle E.

    • We have grown a successful business with many repeat customers. Our days are never boring! One day we are visiting vets and dog trainers to promote our unique service and the next we are meeting with customers and their dogs to match them with a suitable Companion Family. Every day we get to meet amazing dogs. .

      —Nancy D.

    • It feels good to know I can provide quality, loving care to a family’s dog or dogs so that they can have peace of mind to go on a trip knowing their furry family member is being well taken care of and is safe. And I have the assurance that I can call, email or text Danielle, the owner of FlipFlop of the Lakeshore if any problems arise. I enjoy having dogs as guests in my home and still have time for traveling when not watching a guest dog. FlipFlop Dogs provides a great service to pet owners and I am happy to be a Companion for FlipFlop Dogs..

      —Cindy

    • I must admit that my dog Twister is like my child. Leaving Twister in kennels and doggy day camps always left me feeling uncomfortable and fearing that something "bad" might happen. You see, to me, he was too small and too precious to be "housed" with large dogs and caged in a kennel. Therefore, when I realized that FlipFlop offered an alternative to kenneling, I decided to give them a try. From the first moment, I felt a tremendous ease. Upon Twister's return, I received pictures and a few other items that added the "perfect" personal touch. I was so impressed that I couldn't wait to tell my family and friends about their services. I would HIGHLY recommend FlipFlop to anyone I know. Twister and I am thankful to know that he will get the very best of care when "mommy" is away. Thanks so much!.

    • We had previously boarded our [dog] Austin at a local facility and I will never do that again.  It was traumatizing for all of us. I was so comfortable with [FlipFlop of the Lakeshore franchisee] Danielle, that we decided to use her service.  It was awesome!  She comes to pick up your dog.  Austin had an amazing time with his  "companion family".  We received pictures while we were on our vacation of him playing, being brushed and even swimming!  He looked so happy and content.  I can't tell you how reassuring that was for us.  I have no qualms recommending FlipFlop.  .

      —Elizabeth

    • “Now that our children are grown, our world revolves around our three dogs. We finally have the chance to travel frequently, but the thought of putting them in a kennel would be impossible. Your company has the perfect solution! Knowing that they will be cared for by other canine-loving families like ours leaves us with no worries and the freedom to travel guilt free. We give you 5 stars!”.

      —Karen S.

    • When dashing to the airport, usually cutting it close, dropping my Lab off at the kennel just adds to the stress. (Did I mention that he gets carsick?) FlipFlop® will pick Huxley up at a prearranged time making my life so much easier.

      —Danielle M.

    • We never leave our dogs at the kennel, so when we must be away, we rely (impose) on our family and friends to pet sit. FlipFlop® is the ideal solution for us. We can leave our 'kids' with a Companion Family and have complete peace of mind while we are away..
