DoodyCalls Franchise

Pet waste removal service

DoodyCalls provides dog waste clean up services to residents and
communities of all sizes. Our friendly and professional pet waste
technicians are always there to pick up where your dog left off, leaving
you with a clean and safe outdoor space, and more time to enjoy it.

Look around at the growing number of pet care businesses, and you'll realize a new industry is being born. Why? Well 40% of all American households have a pet, and cat and dog populations are growing. At the same time, Americans have less and less time to spend taking care of their pet. They'd rather play with their dog and let someone else clean up. That's where DoodyCalls comes in.

Building Success from the ground up.

From the very beginning it was clear there was strong demand for a pet waste removal service. But only a professional, branded company with clear guidelines and standards was able to meet the demand. With trained, uniformed, and courteous staff, plus efficient and effective marketing, DoodyCalls was able to build its client base to become profitable quickly. DoodyCalls also pioneered a strategy to develop commercial and residential accounts together, a key to our success.
