Dogdrop recently announced that it has awarded a multi-unit franchise agreement calling for the development of five dog daycare facilities throughout Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The operation will be managed day-to-day by Miguel Angel Chuquichanca, who expects to open the first site in November and to have five locations open within six years.

“I was drawn to Dogdrop because I love animals and wanted to be part of a business that serves others who love animals as well,” he says. “Dogdrop really stands out in the pet care space, with a corporate team that is clearly passionate about what they do, a modern take on dog daycare highlighted by its extraordinarily quick and tech-enabled drop off experience, and an exceptional effort put out by the staff in getting to know each dog and dog parent so they can provide a tailored experience. The deciding factor for me in choosing Dogdrop was their high level of care for their customers, for their employees, and for their franchisees.”

Led by Denny and co-founder Greer Wilk, Dogdrop is known to be a “quick stop” differentiator emphasizing convenience, transparency, and quality, from curbside drop-off and pick-up in under 90 seconds to real-time text updates. Members can drop off their dogs for just an hour or so of open-play daycare in locations supervised by trained staff, giving dogs the mental and physical stimulation they require. Usage is billed in 30-minute increments, with a daily capped rate, and members can choose between Loyalty and Unlimited Membership options based on how often they expect to use the service. 

At only 2,000 to 3,000 square feet, the locations are intentionally smaller than typical daycare facilities, enabling staff to deliver an unparalleled level of care to each dog for minimal operating cost. The small footprint also allows locations to be placed in dense and highly trafficked urban areas where traditional dog daycares are too big and too industrial to fit, making it easy for pet parents to drop their dog off while they patronize neighboring retailers.
