Dogtopia is a unique dog daycare business which opened its first location in Virginia in 2002. At that time, dog daycare was very much a new concept, and the Dogtopia approach – to create “indoor dog parks” and provide a daycare services for dog care along the lines of a children’s daycare – was extremely innovative. Since then, the idea of doggie daycare has gained widespread popularity and Dogtopia is now the fastest-growing pet franchise and the leading dog daycare provider in North America.
