While we may be nearing the end of the summer, the hottest days are still ahead. This can be unpleasant for both you and your pets. But no need to worry! Our pet care franchise has you covered with some of our best tips for keeping your four-legged friends comfortable in the heat.
Here at Wag N’ Wash, we’re all about happy pets and happy pet owners. But you can’t be happy if you’re too hot! One of the most common places that a dog can overheat is within your own car. How often do we bring our dogs along to the grocery store or when we’re running errands, but don’t want to bring them inside the store with us? Even in the shade, the temperature within your car can reach 100+ degrees in just ten minutes. Now that’s hot for us humans, but imagine having a fur coat on! This is why it’s very important to never leave your pet in your car unattended during the summer months!
The car isn’t the only place that your dog can overheat, however. In fact, dogs can experience heatstroke in temperatures as low as 70 degrees. It’s important to constantly monitor how our dogs are feeling on
hot days. Keep them inside if it is too hot. Keep them properly hydrated and offer it water throughout the day. Make sure that your house is cool enough for them to be properly comfortable. Try and walk your dog closer to dawn or dusk when the temperature is cooler to prevent your four-legged friend from overheating.
We all know the unpleasant feeling of being barefoot on hot pavement. But, imagine it for your dog! This is why it is important to check your dog’s feet on hot days. Hot feet will be red and irritated, causing pain for your dog. Furthermore, check the temperature of the concrete or pavement that you are walking on with the back of your hand prior to taking your dog on it. If it’s too hot for you, then it’s too hot for your dog!
It should be obvious by now that our pet care franchise has you and your dog covered no matter the need. But this isn’t just reciprocated to pets and their owners. We’ve got our Franchise Owner’s backs as well! As a Wag N’ Wash Franchise Owner, you receive a variety of benefits as well as unparalleled corporate support that your typical business venture simply cannot offer.
For starters, we give our Franchise Owners the potential for tremendous growth and profitability. In 2019, our pet care Franchise Owners saw average gross sales of $1.6 million. Having invested between $425,050 and $789,350, one can see the margins! Additionally, we give our Franchise Owners a variety of revenue streams that lead to more profits coming in. These include retail sales, pet grooming, and our bakery and food sales, among other things. Wag N’ Wash is more than just one business. It’s really three in one!
Even better, our pet care Franchise Owners get to be their own bosses and work when they want to. They get to set their own schedules and work around their needs, not the other way around! This allows our owners to take time off when they need it and spend more time with their families. As a result, our Franchise Owners are some of the happiest people that you’ll ever meet!
Best of all, however, is the satisfaction that our pet care Franchise Owners receive on a daily basis. Owning a Wag N’ Wash isn’t just another business venture. It’s a way to get involved with your community, to get to know those around you, and a way to truly make a difference within the lives of pets and their owners. Wag N’ Wash is a franchise with a cause behind it and all of our employees and owners are truly passionate about animals. Since 2019, we have helped raise $17,000 for freedom service dogs and given back over $100,000 to local non-profits that share our goal of enhancing the quality of life for pets and their guardians. Better yet, we have helped over 3,000 dogs and cats find “furever” homes since our inception. Few franchises can compete with this level of philanthropy and it’s something we are very proud of here at Wag N’ Wash.
So what are you waiting for? Leave your boring corporate career behind and find a career that you are truly passionate about, working with dogs and cats every day! Visit our Franchising Site for more information.
