SEOUL, South Korea, Sept 26 (Korea Bizwire) – During the long Chuseok holidays, the business that benefited most was none other than pet hotels. As more and more people adopt pet dogs and cats, they tend to rely more on the service of professional pet caretakers. A pet owner who took her dog during the last holiday said, “Taking a long drive along with a dog on board is not a humane thing to do. Leaving him to a luxury pet hotel makes me feel good as well as making him happy.”
For example, the Yeokchon branch of “Love Pet Korea,” a pet hotel franchise, saw its business soar during this holiday season as well as the past ones, thanks to the reputation that this is the ideal place where you can leave your dogs and cats and have a peace of mind.
The owner of the store also said, “As more office workers enjoy the five-day workweek, I expect more pet owners to take advantage of our service during weekends. Especially given our store provides one-stop service for pet supplies and pet grooming as well as temporary shelters, I believe the so-called “multi-pet shop” format will attract more popularity.
In addition to currently available services, Love Pet Korea plans to offer the “pet kindergarten” service as well in which trainers give dogs light lessons such as walking and obedience training. For more information on pet hotel services or multi-pet shop franchising opportunities, visit the 2013 Franchise Exhibition at SETEC in Seoul’s Gangnam between October 3 and 5 or the 2013 Small Business Start-up Exposition to be held from October 9 to 12 at Kintex Expo Center in Goyang in the northwest of Seoul.
