However, some business experience can be highly beneficial. 

Doggy Inn also has a selection of products for sale. The dog-friendly products add potential revenue streams. With that said, franchisees may be required to have some sort of retail experience to sell Doggy Inn products.

What Might Make a Doggy Inn Franchise a Good Choice?
