Have You Ever Dreamed of Living Where No One Will Bother You?

10 to 20 Acre Parcels @ $5,000 per Acre.

We have parcels of 5 to 20 acres in a dog people only community, located between Asheville and Charlotte, NC. No dog limits, no county restrictions. Only deed restrictions are no commercial hog or chicken farms, no junk vehicles, and no mobile homes, and no loose dogs. Mountain views, some parcels with woods and/or streams, some mostly open except for shade trees. Paved road frontage with power and phone available. Priced at $5,000 per acre, minimum 10 acres, owner will carry financing with 20 % down. A total of 40 acres is available for sale, when that is gone no more sales.

This community has been planned for an active lifestyle. In case you are traveling or at shows there is someone nearby, but not in your pocket, to help if the need arises. The neighbors all have dogs and understand dog people. Most are retired or active show people.

You will need to plan and build your home and kennel, drill a well, and put in a septic tank. The only one built so far totaled 15 K for well, septic, and grading. They built a small log home. Total cost for 5 acres and a home was less than $150,000. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Call Tam directly for this one. We’ll be picky about the neighbors as this is the backside of my own farm.

Here’s your chance. Personal situation with owners require selling this super kennel and home. Situated 1 mile from an on-ramp to Interstate 26 just S of Columbia, SC. In Lexington County, which is the top school district in the state.

The house is immaculate. New off frame modular that features 9’ ceilings, crown moulding throughout. Stainless steel appliances grace the huge kitchen with tons of cabinets and a large central island with eating bar. Three bedrooms, split floor plan.

Turnkey Business and Home in Beautiful Vermont

Vermont is a state with absolutely gorgeous summers. April through November temperatures average over 50 degrees with July average of 81 and Aug ave is 79, nice. Late January can be a bit cold but if you are into winter sports at all, it is a welcomed change.

This is a turnkey operation with over 2200 database. The business is located in the west central part of the state about 8 miles from Lake Champlain, and is a rural setting with fantastic neighbors. It is also adjacent to an agricultural district. Without looking hard I have likely 3000 acres available for dog training and this resource has not been tapped.

The retiring owners have been at this site for 34 years and are looking forward to retirement. As part of human nature we have slowed a bit in the last couple of seasons so there is a good potential for future owners to grow this business with some exciting promotion. Although it is an older facility, it has been maintained and improved. The setting is aesthetically very pleasing and can be seen from one of the major north/south corridors of the state. It is surrounded by many smaller lakes and about 3 miles from the largest lake within the state borders.

The main kennel building has 29 indoor/outdoor runs. An attached 400 sq ft grooming area has 5 in/out runs, an abundance of natural lighting, drying cages, laundry, and a stainless bathing tub. There is a common entry foyer for the grooming and boarding facility that also serves for supply sales. The main kennel has spacious walk/work areas, and a portion can be closed off for the colder months or when business is slower. Presently there are 2 heating systems in each area for those rare occasions when there is a power outage. If one desired one of those systems could be removed, as a backup generator was installed in 2015.

A separate building houses our training component. This is a 48 x 72 finished open area that was used for obedience classes, built with a 'Utility' ring in mind. It serves to garage the dog trailer and truck in the training season so that the dogs are readily available to the 14 I/O runs—which can be expanded to 21 by adjusting the whelping area. In addition there is a handicapped bathroom, storage, office, and another whelping area on one end.

There is a 24 x 32 two car garage with workshop, storage, and tool area. To the rear of it is another overhang area used for the storage of lawn equipment, trailers and the like.

When we bought the property in 1982 the house was virtually a shell. Every room has been remodeled with either slate or hardwood flooring. It has a cathedral ceiling in the living room, a very spacious master bedroom in the loft, and bedroom on the entry level. There are 2 fireplaces, one having a rice coal fired insert that is absolutely enjoyable. A third bedroom could be added with some renovation. The kitchen was completely redone about 6 years ago with alder cabinetry and butcher block island. The exterior was re-insulated and sided with cedar shake style vinyl, re-roofed with standing seam steel.

A pleasing creek runs through the property between the house and kennel. There is little that God created that is as calming as water and trickling water. Although it appears close to the house, it has not flooded in the 34 years we have been here, including hurricane Irene, when several areas of Rte 30 nearby totally washed out. That creek is supplied by two other ponds we built for the purpose of retriever training. The upper 'technical water' is designed to train young retrievers a step by step approach to advanced water work. It is also used for tune-up drills for advanced dogs prior to competition and as socialization periods for kennel dogs and puppies. This is an ideal situation for the growing sport of dock jumping! There is abundant yard that compliments the 3.5 acre property, plenty of space for agility if one desires. Surrounding properties have historically been accessible and are protected from future development by the sole owner.

Very Profitable and Well-Located South Carolina Kennel

A great opportunity for a couple to run a small kennel (which is grandfathered in and expandable) in a growing area outside of Columbia, SC. 25 runs primarily for small dogs, separate building for large dogs or groups of little dogs. Two fully fenced yards (5 and 6 foot fencing) on 3.65 acres with 1800 square foot home built in “60’s. Many improvements, including new A/C and furnace Rheem, house was recently painted, brand new warranted Energystar metal roof. Large personal yard fenced with 4’ fencing. House is 3/2 with Master bedroom with attached bath, closets galore, two smaller bedrooms. Kitchen and living room now a single open floor plan. Still needs updating, but can be very comfortable. Sun porch, laundry room and kitchen have real knotty pine walls and cabinets. Two smaller bedrooms are painted and have new bamboo flooring.

Ten years of clientele building, would be ideal for a quality groomer (area has a number of mediocre salons) we get the repairs! Has supported 2 FT and 1 PT groomers with different strengths. Other partner could work front end and supervise kennel. It is a one person kennel and we have staff in place. We are noted for cleanliness, four yard exercises a day, superior grooming, and an owner occupied property where dogs are checked on during thunderstorms and fireworks.

Other options would be to convert the backyard shed into a cattery (we turn many away). Someone who is willing to groom cats ( a demand that is not being met). Expansion of one or both kennels. Retail sales. Training, the land on the North side of the driveway is level and could easily be used for obedience classes. This was my first venture into kenneldom, but after ten years and osteoarthritis it needs new younger owners with a vision. It is true, “Build it and they will come”.

Charming Maryland Country Home with Rental

This house was built and owned by same family until it was purchased by the current owners in 2007. The owners asphalted the driveway and put in all new guttering at that time. Some special things about the house: The cabinets are one-of-a-kind, built by the previous owner/builder. The family room has a pier built in it, and has many other compliments. The property is beautiful. Just under 9 acres of wooded area with trails, horse pasture, and still leaves a big yard in front and back of house. Rental property has large back yard, wood flooring and linoleum. Nice sunroom. Round driveway with garage at rental, which Sits between the 2 houses. Rental has new well. New field drains at main house in 2007. New shutters on main house this year.

The current owners started the business from scratch and it has grown every year they have owned it, including this year, and they have not advertised since they opened. They intentionally built the kennel so that it will be very easy to double the number of dogs that can be housed as the business grows.  They love the business but are ready to retire now that their children are grown. This is the perfect opportunity for the right owner.

Western NC Boarding Kennel and Home with Multiple Income Streams

This boarding kennel and home on approx. 6 acres in the beautiful - and affluent - hills of Western North Carolina, while privately set well off the main road, is well known by the local residents, since it is the only one in town (zoned in county jurisdiction). The kennel does steady business year-round, as the numbers prove, yet the kicker in this deal is the on-site 4-Unit apartment building, and the steady income that it provides. Together, the two income streams make for a comfortable living in the fresh mountain air, surrounded by the wonders of nature.

Kennel has 24 Runs: 8 In/Outs w/ wash-downs. 8 Indoor only, and 8 Outdoor. Office and grooming/bathing rooms are in kennel building as well. All double fenced & well set up. 3 septic tanks are far more than adequate, allowing room for expansion if desired. Small cattery for the felines. Steady and loyal clientele.

The approximately 3300 sq ft. home has 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms. The rooms throughout the house are spacious and comfortable, not pretentious; perfect for the mountain setting. Decks abound all around the house. There is a fenced pond next to the house where ducks swim and the owners dogs play. Paved Driveways follow conveniently from the house to both the kennel and apartment buildings.

The apartment building has 4 units: three 1-bedroom apartments, and one 2-bedroom. They stay rented nearly all of the time, and are far enough removed from the house to assure privacy for both you and your renters.

This is a must-see property. It's mountain living at it's best: State/National Parks nearby. Secluded, yet near conveniences and not remote. A comfortable living right at home! The asking price is below recent appraisal value of just the property and structures.

Great Kennel, Super Area, and a Lovely Home

Price reduced!

Great kennel, wonderful land, super area, and a Lovely home. Well situated in central NC; 2 ½ miles off I 77, convenient to both I 85 and I 40.  

Not often do you find the combination of a large and lovely well kept home, great personal dog facilities, and a profitable and well maintained kennel. This is that rare combination.

2500 sq. ft home with 4 bedrooms, two master suites, 3 baths, one with whirlpool tub. Open floorplan, ceramic tile floors, fireplace and a supplemental wood stove, super dog crate room opening into the completely finished double garage and directly out to the split rail fenced exercise/play areas in the back for the little dogs and on the large side yard for the big ones. Split rail wire backed.

Off the great room there are glass doors to the pool and a walkway out to the 16 additional kennels for personal or client dogs. This area has 16 10X10’s all roofed. They are in groups of 6-6-and 4. All open onto 100’ run areas.

The kitchen is galley style with new granite counter tops and new stainless steel sink. Bathrooms and kitchen all look brand new, and one of them is; it has never been used.

The exterior of the house is white brick, shielded from the road by towering Leyland Cypress trees, which also break the property into sections with evergreen screening. Approach to the house is two brick pillars and antique wrought iron gates.

The kennel is state of the art. 104 kennels—all in/out and washdown, most with paver tile floors in the aisles. All Mason fence, one entire building the 1” Mason. Two separate buildings plus two catteries, kennel kitchen, grooming and drying rooms. Nice reception area and kennel office. Owner’s office is upstairs and boasts a bath and lots of light, skylights, windows, and could easily be made into an apartment. Central heat and air throughout. All runs double security fenced and privacy fenced. Attractive entrance also gated with wrought iron gates.

The business is great. Fully staffed with long term employees. Owner selling due to retirement. This one is move in ready. You can begin making money on the first day. Doing a very good gross and could be increased by adding services.

Located within commuting distance of Charlotte, NC. The last one we had with this combination of pristine house and wonderful kennel sold very quickly, I expect this one will too.
