LE CONCEPT
At Dogtopia, we have a passion for caring for dogs. Happy, healthy pups are at the heart of who we are. We’ve created a loving place with what dogs want and need in mind. It’s a dog daycare, boarding and spa facility all rolled into one.

Dogtopia is dedicated to offering exceptional care for dogs and currently operates more than 40 locations in the United States and Canada. Our modern facilities provide a healthy, safe and fun environment for dogs to socialize and play in, supervised by a highly trained and loving team.


THE STORE
In addition to daycare, other dog-related services offered include boarding, grooming, training and self service washing. DOGTOPIA Businesses also offer dog-related retail products, such as leashes, collars, toys, dog food and dog treats, for retail sale.

DOGTOPIA Businesses typically require between 5,000 to 10,000 square feet of space and are usually located in an urban or suburban area near a main thoroughfare easily accessible to commuters.
