Opportunities for Expansion

Opportunities for Expansion

There are a number of exciting opportunities for further expansion of Akuna Pet Resort via either the creation of additional income streams or by maximising the revenue potential of existing facilities.

But perhaps the most unexpected surprise for the new owner will be the increase in revenue that comes from the existing streamlining of accommodation packages that occurred in June 2016…

…or to put it simply, even more money will be coming in as a result of these recent changes before the new owners have had the chance to make a single change themselves!

Dog Grooming

Dog Grooming

At present Akuna has a good relationship with a local groomer and all dogs receive a warm hydro bath and blow dry before they are sent home.

The infrastructure for adding extra grooming as an additional income stream is all already there in our fully-equipped grooming room with drop down commercial grade dryers.

Extra dog grooming services could include hair/fur clipping, styling, nail clipping and to tie with with Akuna’s special needs packages, sensitive skin treatments and massages could also be offered to special needs and older dogs.

Speciality Dog Training

Speciality Dog Training

As many owners don’t have the time in their busy lives or simply don’t know how to begin, specialty dog training while their dogs are on holiday is another potential area with huge opportunity for expansion.

Basic obedience training, such as sit, stay, drop, shake etc, would especially appeal to clients with puppies or rescue dogs, while training in loose lead walking and recall training are common issues for many dog owners.

Specialty dog training is also a service that would would tie in particularly well with Akuna’s special needs packages…

…helping with the behavioural management of fear reactive dogs.

There is also the potential to introduce in-boarding training where dogs come to stay for the week or two while being trained. This would be a great use for the kennels during the off-peak season.

Massive Opportunity for Cat Boarding

Massive Opportunity for Cat Boarding

Even more so than the dog boarding, the opportunities to expand the cat boarding are massive.

Because the existing cat units are 4 levels high, the new owners could potentially double their income from cat boarding by simply dividing the existing floor to ceiling units into two.

This division of the units would still give the cats their preferred separation of litter tray from their food and sleeping area, as well as still having the opportunity to climb and jump over two levels.

Compared to dogs, boarding cats requires much less work and currently the cat boarding is a much smaller section of Akuna’s business, so there is plenty of room for expansion in this area, with a relatively small amount of effort required.

Property Development

Property Development

With 10 acres of land and three existing cottages in addition to the main commercial building, the opportunities for property development at Akuna are virtually unlimited.

There’s plenty of land if you decide to build your dream family home from scratch, and you could live in the existing premises while your new home is being built. Or you may decide to add your personal stamp to the existing Akuna Cottage by renovating or extending it further.

And because Akuna Pet Resort is a business that virtually runs itself you may also choose to live elsewhere and install a manager in Akuna Cottage, or even in one of the two smaller cottages. You could even renovate Cattery Cottage and Painter’s Studio and rent them out with or without Akuna Cottage as short-term holiday accommodation for visitors to the Hunter region.

Whatever you eventually decide to do, there is plenty of room on Akuna’s 10 acres to renovate or rent out the existing properties on the land.
