NEW YORK, NY, USA, Jan. 14, 2022 / — Dogdrop, a women-founded startup whose mission is to provide dog care, products and services, has partnered to Oakscale Franchise Development to lead its national expansion. This follows a recent $2.9 million funding round led by Fuel Capital with participation from Muse Capital, Animal Capital, Gaingels, Science and pet care leaders including Mars PetCare and Garrett Smallwood, CEO of Wag!

Led by founders Shaina Denny and Greer Wilk, Dogdrop offers open play with highly trained staff, so dogs get the right mental and physical stimulation even if they’re only around for an hour or two. It features exclusive technology that makes life easier for dog parents and simplifies operations for franchise owners.
Oakscale Franchise Development is led by Founder and CEO, Joshua Kovacs, and Senior Vice President of Development, Joe Sexton, and is no stranger to the pet franchise spotlight, having awarded more than 100 PetWellClinic units since its partnership in August 2020.

“Dogdrop fills a void in the market,” Kovacs explained. “There is a need for flexible drop-off options for parents who want the best for their dogs, but don’t always need a full day or half day of We looked at the other options out there and found that Dogdrop is way ahead of the technology curve in dog care, and they offer something we couldn’t find anywhere else, on-demand care. with no time requirement.Consumers expect both cutting-edge technology and flexibility in 2022. Dogdrop is rewriting the business model for dog daycare.

Dogdrop locations are much smaller than your typical 1800-2400 square foot daycare with the goal of maximizing revenue per square foot without sacrificing quality of care. They are also in the most convenient places where people already live, work and play.

“Our mission is first and foremost to provide a safe, healthy and fun environment for dogs,” said Shaina Denny, CEO of Dogdrop. “The second part is to create a flexible, convenient, and seamless member experience for dog parents. If we execute those two things, revenue follows, and we’ve seen that to be true before. Dogs need a daily mental, physical and social stimulation, but parents are often forced to choose between expensive half- or full-day options or sacrifice work or personal time to give their dogs what they need. At Dogdrop, you can lay back for an hour or two and do what’s best for your dog without breaking the bank.

The partnership joins two of the youngest and most forward-thinking franchise companies.

“Partnering with Oakscale was an easy decision. Their track record as a young company is exceptional and, more importantly, we share common values ​​and visions,” said Denny.

Kovacs replied, “Dogdrop is special in its own right, and with Shaina and Greer at the helm of the ship, it’s no surprise that they have already attracted sophisticated investors. I won’t be shocked when franchises run out across the country. »
