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.

Quaint, easily accessible kennel tucked away in the middle of town on a dead-end street. This kennel has been in continuous operation for over 30+ years. Established clientele with the capacity to increase customer base through a good marketing strategy.
The land is mostly level with just a slight slope in the backyard, which is fenced providing a great exercise area for your boarders. The front area could also be fenced, giving two separate outside areas for separation of large and small dogs.
The majority of kennels have a guillotine door to the outside run. Making it the only kennel in town that has indoor/outdoor runs.
The grooming room has 2 grooming tables. One of the tables is hydraulic, allowing for lifting bigger dogs into the tub and also making it easier to groom them. All of the grooming equipment stays with the kennel.
A separate cat room ensures the dogs don't upset the cats and vice versa.
There is a separate home available for sale. It is currently leased until March 2018. Could be negotiable.
If you're looking for a great business where you love what you do, look no further. You will find a wonderful life operating your own boarding/grooming facility!Listing #khf06076

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.Listing #khf06070

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”.Listing #khf07058

Western NC Boarding Kennel and Home with Multiple Income Streams

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.

Decks abound all around the house. There is a fenced pond next to the house where ducks swim and the owners dogs play.

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.

Nestled in an Old Growth Forest sits a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
Highly respected and internationally known Aquatic Exercise Facility for dogs. Opened in 2004, it is now the longest continuously operating pool in America.
This incredible house, sitting on just over an acre of land, is a purpose built Aquatic Exercise Facility for dogs. Every detail was addressed, and no expense was spared in building a world class facility! This is a highly profitable business, with no off-season and no down time. It is busy 12 months of the year, and offers expanded services such as specialty day care, recovery care, and emergency care, and accommodations for out of town/state clients.
Original House built in 1968. Business/Pool addition seamlessly designed and built in 2003, approximately 5,550 sq. ft. in total.
A separate entrance keeps the business separate from your home. While there are three small stairs to the business entrance, a standard pet ramp makes this fully handicapped accessible. There is also the option to enter through the patio doors behind the desk. This is the way dog aggressive/reactive dogs can come and go without any contact with other dogs.
We have developed highly successful methodologies for swimming dogs with specific issues. Facility is recommended by Veterinarians and Cornell University—a world renowned College of Veterinary Medicine.
The tools, and the knowledge that we have acquired, will pass on with the sale of the business as part of the training.
We offer a 24 hr monitored environment for recovery after surgery, or after an accident. Many dogs die unattended at veterinarian's facilities after surgical procedures. A vet is reluctant to send a pet home because they cannot offer a quiet, safe, stress free environment for the crucial 24 hour (sometimes more) initial recovery time.
This facility is able to cater to pets who cannot for a huge variety of reasons stay at a conventional kennel. Blind pets, arthritic pets, geriatric pets, even dog aggressive pets! We charge a premium price for these services, and this has not been a problem.
SPECIAL FINANCING is available for this listing. Please inquire for specifics.Listing #khf06074
