Dogtopia® prides itself on being a place where pets are valued as family and dogs enjoy playtime, spa treatments and overnight stays in a positive environment. Dog owners have the assurance of leaving their beloved pets in the hands of trained professionals while they're at work or away on vacation. Dogtopia® associates nurture each and every pet as if it were their own. Each location offers dog daycare, boarding, spa services, and most also have professional grooming. Dogtopia does not breed discriminate and welcomes social dogs of all ages, sizes, and abilities. The company was founded by Amy Nichols in 2002 and began franchising in 2005. Currently, there are 21 Dogtopia franchises and three company-owned locations in operation across the U.S., with five more in development for a total of 29 to open by year-end.
