Woof Daycare & Boarding – Glenburn

Woof Daycare & Boarding LogoPeter Richmond has always been passionate about dogs. When he learned that a well-established dog-focused business was on the market, he saw it as the perfect chance to pursue his dreams. For guidance, his bank recommended he work with the Maine Small Business Development Centers (SBDC).

Peter began working with Maine SBDC at CEI Associate Center Director/Business Advisor Alison Lane. Armed with determination and Alison’s guidance, Peter set out to purchase, rebrand, and expand his dream venture. Together, Peter and Alison crafted a comprehensive business plan, fine-tuned financial projections, and explored various financing options.

Thus, Woof Daycare & Boarding was born, ushering a fresh chapter for this long-time business. Located in Glenburn, Woof is a doggie daycare, boarding, and grooming facility. They prioritize hands-on, attentive care, reassuring dog parents that their furry companions are well looked after.

Woof Daycare & Boarding was welcomed with overwhelming demand. Already, they have exceeded their goals and continue to increase the number of dogs they serve. Peter also introduced a new grooming service in March 2024.
