Here’s what we’re envisoning:
A bright, open 3,000-5,000 square foot space in the Kitchener area with high quality recycled rubber flooring throughout for safe play. Separate space or divided area for agility equipment, classes and events.
Indoor Dog Socialization Park
Space rental for private training, parties
Meet Ups! Breed, Size and Puppy Socials
Lure line Days
Liquor licensed evenings (Dogtoberfest, anyone?)
The reality of Kickstarting a business is that it can be hard to hit a large target, but the more we have to work with, the more exciting things we can do with the space!
At our goal of $25,000 we can make a basic version of The Wealthy K9 Club: an indoor play space with fun events and activities. With this budget, we can open a ~2,000-3000 square foot social space for people and their dogs, provide lightweight agility equipment, obstacles, scent enrichment, meet ups and all kinds of events for members. At this tier we would not be able to provide a lesson and rental space or professional equipment at the time of opening. Starting small leaves plenty of room for growth!
At $35,000, we can afford a larger space that can be divided so training and rental space can be part of our services. Members will have uninterrupted access to the socialization park all day long, we can hold significantly more events and also provide obedience, puppy classes and meet ups! We would not be able to provide professional sport and agility equipment but we would have an amazing starting point and lots of other activities for members!
Our ultimate Goal is $50,000. Hitting this goal means we can afford a larger space, more perks, provide professional agility equipment and hit the ground running! If we reach this tier, everyone benefits: to show our gratitude, all of our backers who pledge at any tier above a monthly membership reward ($75+), will receive an extra month of membership, FREE!

Remember, Kickstarter is ALL or NOTHING! If we don’t reach our goal you don’t lose your money, but you also don’t get the opportunity to be an active member of a wonderful new resource for pet owners. So LIKE and SHARE with other dog owners and together we can create your new favourite place to spend time in Kitchener!
