Why Scamps & Champs?

The UK pet population has been growing rapidly over the last decade. There are now over 57 million pets, which accounts for 40% of UK households who own a pet!  As people are working longer hours than ever and find themselves with less time to devote to their animals, Scamps & Champs’s services have become an essential part of pet ownership. In addition to this, pet owners need to know that, if they are ever away on holiday or for work, their cherished animals will be well cared for in their absence. With an established brand behind you, clients will feel more reassured that their pets are in the best possible hands, and you will have a prime opportunity to become the number one pet services brand within your local community.

Scamps & Champs is a family business, operated by Lesley Regan and her partner, John. Prior to starting her own business, Lesley worked full time as a PA and always felt guilty leaving her dogs alone all day. They both also hated leaving them at holiday time. Lesley and John started the business in the Stockport area in 2009 and now have six branches in the UK. They franchised the company four years ago and their franchisees are all part of the Scamps & Champs family.

Every Scamps & Champs franchisee receives a full training and support package to help them get up and running as quickly as possible. With an initial, three-day training programme, franchisees can feel confident that they will know exactly what they’re doing from Day One.

And it doesn’t stop there! Support is available on an ongoing basis, not only from Head Office but also from their franchisee network, which can be called upon whenever you have queries or need advice. Scamps & Champs encourages their franchisees to support and help each other as much as possible, so they can benefit from each other’s experience and knowledge.

As a Scamps & Champs franchisee, you will also receive the opportunity to achieve an official qualification in pet-sitting, dog-walking and home-boarding. This will give you the edge over your local competition and provide even more reassurance to your clients that their pets will be well cared for in their absence.
