PHOENIX — The Dogtopia pet franchise has announced the unveiling of its first Dogtopia @ Work campus. The dog daycare and spa-only location is exclusive to the employees at Wolverine Worldwide in Rockford, MI, and will bring the company-subsidized dog daycare to its 750 employees.

With more than 100 locations across North America, the brand is “the fastest-growing provider of specialty dog daycare,” according to a press release. The Wolverine Worldwide dog daycare center is operated by franchisee Tim Parker, who also owns Dogtopia of Grand Rapids.

“Wolverine Worldwide’s employees asked, and the leadership team listened. Dog daycare was the top benefit request among its 750 workers. We’re thrilled to directly meet that need conveniently on site,” said Neil Gill, president and CEO of Dogtopia. “The corporate campus model makes perfect sense as companies seek to be pet-friendly without having to manage which dogs are current on vaccinations, remaining respectful to those with allergies and removing the risk associated with dogs of different sizes and temperaments in common areas together. This is a win-win as it provides these employees safe socialization, exercise and education for their dogs while providing Dogtopia a brand-new channel for us to share our quality daycare service.”

“It’s important for us to continue to invest in our workplace environment in a way that aligns with our values as an employer of choice, and enriches the daily experience and quality of life of our workforce,” said Blake W. Kreuger, Wolverine Worldwide Chairman, CEO, and President.

“We’re extremely excited to have Dogtopia’s presence and friendly staff at our global headquarters to provide pristine care for our employees’ pets while they help drive our business forward.”
