Leading the Way … what can you expect?

If you are eager to start your own business in the lucrative pet industry and have the ambition to grow a successful franchise, we have a team of experts on hand to get you started right away.

Leading the Way is the sister company to OSCAR Pet Foods, the largest pet food home-delivery franchise in the UK.

With an abundance of animal behaviour expertise and a keen eye on the pet industry, we’ve spotted a gap in the market for much needed pet ownership support.
And with twenty years’ experience in a growth industry, we have the knowledge to help you build and maintain a successful business. Our expertise in training and franchise support will provide you with the confidence to help busy pet owners manage their day-to-day pet care needs and routines

Are you fit and ready for adventure – whatever the weather?

  • Dog Walking
  • Pet Home Visits
  • Pet Taxi

This exciting franchise allows you the freedom of working for yourself in the growing pet care market.

Your passion for animals combined with professional training will ensure that your clients receive a reliable and trustworthy service.

Sadly, in spite of an abundance of loving intention, the safety and wellbeing of our precious pet population is frequently at risk. This is largely due to a lack of professional knowledge and a limited understanding of pet behaviour, training and companionship.

There is a definite need in this growing sector to raise standards, secure accreditation and deliver expertise.

We’ve set our sights on making a difference.
