  • Funding Usage

    I am looking to expand my business to offer doggy daycare, boarding, self-bathing stations, grooming, and vet care. I want to be a one stop shop for every possible dog need! In order to do this, I will need to build out the space I am currently leasing to make it suitable for these varying aspects.

  • Business Plan

    I started Happy Hounds in 2022 and have grown my revenue annually! I have hired another person to train with me and have quickly filled BOTH of our schedules. We are booking months in advance and need to hire another person to keep up with the demand. Beyond that, I'd like to be able to accommodate ALL dog needs - boarding/daycare/grooming/vet care/etc. If this location is successful, I will open a location in southern Maine too! There is a massive need for more pet services in this area! I am constantly hearing from my clients that their daycare is full, their groomer is booked out 4 months in advance, and their vet can't fit them in for months or isn't accepting new patients. People love their pets, want the best for them, and I'd love to be able to fill their needs!

  • Self Identified Competition

    There are a few other trainers in my area who offer similar programs as mine and they are also booking out months in advance. My business standards are slightly higher - my competitors do not require that the dogs in their care wear GPS tracking collars or send daily report cards to owners like I do. I strive to stand out by having a better reputation and better offerings than my competitors! There are also groomers, vets, and doggy daycares in the area who are booked out or over capacity, but there is NOBODY who offers all of these services at once! Not yet anyways. I go above and beyond to ensure my clients are comfortable and their dogs are safe. I require a full profile and consult prior to training. All dogs must be up to date on vaccines prior to drop off. I document every meal and bowel movement as well as track dogs' weight weekly to ensure they stay healthy while in my care. Beyond the regular health & wellbeing of the dog, I also provide the owners with DAILY report cards so that they can see what their dog is learning. It gives the owners to watch the progress, see that their dog is happy, and learn a bit just by observing. After graduation and owner education are complete, we follow up weekly and then monthly as well as meet with the owners/dogs multiple times to ensure the training "sticks" and the dogs remain successful!
