Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resorts

Established in 2011, Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resorts led the movement of the all-inclusive pet care facility. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, these large 12,000 – 25,000 square foot, state of art facilities, include full service veterinary hospitals, boarding, daycare, dog training, bathing ,and grooming for dogs and cats. Each Resort has been designed with the comfort of the animals in mind, such as; rubber floors, high ceilings, large areas to play, and the safety of individual bedrooms for resting, sleeping and eating.

No Vacancy Reservations & Occupancy Management Software

Big Dog Ventures is developing a completely new reservation and occupancy management software for use in veterinary hospitals, dog kennels, and dog daycare facilities everywhere.  No Vacancy will be a dynamic, patent pending system that integrates with existing veterinary software to create a powerful new platform. Big Dog Ventures plans to launch this software in the first quarter of 2019. No Vacancy will be a game changer.

Need a Partner?

Often, a hired consultant or coach is all you need. However, at other times you want or even need a fully invested partner with a team who can help you achieve your dreams and execute your vision. To date, Big Dog Ventures has partnered on a number of business plans and pet care businesses.  Before your doors open, you may feel overwhelmed by the details of business planning, the array of design and facility choices, as well as how to broach operations and financing. We can help walk you through this exciting process, while at the same time, not let you spend one dollar more than you need to. Many facilities we see are over built and have inefficient flows. Please let us step in and help you before it’s too late! Send us an email and  let’s talk about creating your vision.

If you have an existing hospitality business that needs help, we have a team ready to jump in and fix your problems, while training you how to operate your business the most effective, efficient, and profitable way. We can turn around a drowning pet care company in as little as a couple months – from being under water to flowing profits. Big Dog Ventures has a proven track record of being able to quickly assess and correct the errors & omissions that are keeping your business from realizing a healthy profit. Email us today and let’s begin turning your dreams into your reality.

Community Seminars

Big Dog Ventures motto has always been to improve the life of dogs, and their families, everywhere. By holding complimentary community service seminars on various topics affecting dogs and their families, we feel that we are able to do just that.  Recent seminars have ranged from first aid and dog training, to coyotes and rattlesnakes.  Seminars have been held at veterinary hospitals, kennels, dog parks, Pet Expo’s, adoption events, as well as at private HOAs. If you’re interested in hosting a seminar, please contact us for availability and scheduling.

Volunteer Projects

Big Dog Ventures is very active in giving back to the animal community, here in the United States and in Mexico. Over the past decade, Big Dog Ventures has organized several trips to help animal hospitals abroad by bringing medical supplies, medications, books, internet and even veterinarians to provide much needed continuing education and surgical services. A Sea Turtle rescue program was put in place in Mainland Mexico that protects the sea turtle eggs from poachers who believe that they are aphrodesiacs. Please contact us if you would like to participate in one of our trips, have knowledge of an area that needs help, or would like to donate to help animal hospitals and animals in need around the world. We are more than happy to help, and grateful for your participation.
