Unique opportunity to own a well-known and very popular dog walking business that has been established for over 15 years and grown into one of the top pet service businesses in the Charlottesville area.

The primary service is midday walks with a dedicated and experienced team of 7 walkers who have a genuine love for and understanding of animals.

The owner and founder doesn’t take part in any of the actual dog walking services and spends 10-15 hours a week managing the business which makes this perfect for a semi-absentee or part time owner. The business has stellar reviews on popular platforms like Google, Yelp, and Facebook along with plenty of testimonials from existing customers. Under the current model, the business has been growing largely through word of mouth and referrals without much having to be spent on marketing or advertising. This is a testament to the businesses long standing and well-earned reputation in the community.

The owner has decided it’s time to retire, so this presents a great opportunity for someone looking to get into the pet services industry without the time and headaches of starting from scratch. The owner has been in the pet care industry for over 35 years and wants to make sure the business is transitioned to the next owner so they can build on the existing track record and success.
