Additional Business Expenses
When pricing your doggy daycare services, don’t forget to factor in all of the additional expenses that come with running a successful business. These include things like:
- Business insurance;
- Advertising and marketing;
- Doggy daycare supplies;
- Grooming supplies, if applicable;
- Dog training supplies, if applicable;
- And other overhead costs.
These expenses can add up quickly – and if you don’t plan for them, then you may not be able to stay profitable.
Furthermore, you’ll also want to figure out if your business will have any administrative charges that clients will need to pay whenever a given situation arises. For example, this could look like:
- Late pick-up fees;
- Pick-up and/or delivery fees;
- An application fee for first-time customers;
- Cancellation fees;
- Emergency vet fees;
- Deposits, etc.
By factoring in these additional costs as well, you’ll be able to ensure that your doggy daycare is both competitive and profitable!
