DETERMINE YOUR MARKET
The first step to any successful business plan is to identify your customers and their number. If you have enough customers willing to pay you for your time and expenses, the first question has been answered.
Amazingly, most would be owners do not ask nor answer these questions and are puzzled to learn that they can't keep afloat financially by just hanging out a sign.
Seek clients through brief appointments with pet store owners, pet doctors and even travel agents who cater to commercial accounts with frequent business travelers.
Ask if they feel there is a need, the frequency that they are asked about available dog day care in your market, what features or services seem to be in the highest demand and if they'd be willing to refer potential clients to your business.
Ask how many patients/clients/customers they see daily who own dogs and of that amount, the percentage that they feel would be interested in your service.
