The Pets Homes and Gardens Company
The Pets, Home and Gardens Company operates a nationwide network of pet franchises from Plymouth in Devon to Whitley Bay in Northumberland; 29 franchisees in all covering over 40 franchised areas.
The business started originally as petsitting service in Horsham, West Sussex by Julie Maxted back in 2002. Her husband Peter joined the business in 2008 and they started franchising the business in 2009.
Many different aspects of pet care are covered from dog boarding, creching and walking to housesitting, small animal boarding and daily pet visits.
Here is what some of our franchisees say about the business:
Becoming a PHG franchisee has been the best decision I have ever made. Having worked in the corporate world for many years, I have seen a vast improvement in my work life balance. I have the freedom to run my business the way I wish, with the reassurance that I can ask for help whenever I need it. Peter and Julie’s training and knowledge is second to none and has given me the confidence to set up the business I have always wanted and to make the step into self employment.”
A big thank you to both you and Julie for all the support and encouragement you have given me. I consider myself to be so lucky looking after all the lovely animals in my care. This is the best job I have ever had.”
