Meet Clay Jones of Furry Guys Pet Care in Frisco

Today we’d like to introduce you to Clay Jones.

Clay, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Furry Guys Pet Care, Inc. was started in 2009 by Clay Jones. When Furry Guys started we only had two pet care pros, Clay and Matt. Now we have grown to twenty sitters that cover most of the DFW area. We have the best team that we can ever ask for. All team members are considered friends and family and all are full-blown animal lovers.

We consider ourselves not normal and love it. Furry Guys run the company on what we like to call a “Friend Basis” style. We stay in touch like family and stay in touch whenever needed. We are transparent in what we do and always give our clients the option of communicating with their sitters at all times. Trust is a major factor we strive on. We give it and we expect trust back.

We don’t just sell Pet Care needs, we also sell peace of mind! We want you to have peace of mind in trusting us to care for your furry kids.

Furry Guys Resort is now open located in the historic part of the downtown commercial district! We consider it a hybrid resort because the owner lives on site with the pups. It will be his residence/pet resort/dog play yard/and dog hangout spot. Consider us your one-stop-shop for all your pet care needs. Services include; Pet Sitting, Dog Boarding, Dog Walking, Cat Sitting, Home Visits, and a Social Pet Hangout

Has it been a smooth road?
It has not. Started out rough. Marketing was a big issue at the beginning but once we figured out how to get the word out we started blossoming. We rarely advertise anymore and just get referrals by word of mouth. Took a lot of hard work and strategy but paid off in the long run.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Furry Guys Pet Care, Inc. story. Tell us more about the business.
We are a hybrid dog resort where the pups get socialization and attention all day and night. The owner, Clay Jones, lives on site with the pups, so after closing the boarding pups still get to play all night. Furry Guys Resort was built and remodeled human grade to treat the pups as humans, kinda like a dog social spot. 🙂

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are hoping to expand and open a second location in 2018, and keep expanding. Ultimate goal is to franchise and be able to offer our services all over DFW.

Pricing:

  • Home Style Board $45 Each Additional Pup $25
  • VIP Mini Homes $90 Each Additional Pup $40
