Ms. Divta,

I urge you to do a follow-up interview with Paul Mann regarding the status of this franchise and the comments that are appearing on the internet that are not from Paul Mann's Fetch Petcare "PR Camp". I have heard that Paul Mann "happens to know the identity of one of the individuals posting negative comments and his attorney has served the individual creating the posts with a Cease and Desist Order - However, he does not cite if what is posted from this individual or others are true or not. Let's hear what he has to say now.

Fetch Franchise

Ms. DiVita,

You are lucky you did not buy a Fetch! Petcare Franchise, as one of the comments suggests. Franchises are closing across the country due to false or mis-leading representations by Paul Mann and Fetch! Petcare. Even more appalling - Paul Mann is attempting to blame everyone including Franchise owners for these issues.
It has come to a point that Paul Mann has brought on a “consultant” that specializes in Franchise relations to defer issues. There is no vendetta against Paul Mann this is the truth and others should know before involving themselves with this Franchise.

Susan, perhaps you can share the ruling that says boarding pets in someone's home is illegal? I know many pet sitters who watch pets in their home, and I do not believe they are breaking the law.

I do want to understand what you mean so I can make sure S&S readers have accurate information. Please let us know how you know this is illegal.

Thank you.

Did you know that boarding of pets in someone's home is illegal when you interviewed this company? When they say that they board privately..that is illegal.

Hawkeye, thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comment. Perhaps you can elaborate on how Mann has "alientated the entire rest of his industry"... I am unaware of the issue, but am willing to hear your side. I hope you will email me or share here, in another comment.


One has to wonder if Ms. DiVita is thinking of buying one of Mann's franchises with her adoration of someone who has alienated the entire rest of his industry with his patronizing insults about boarding kennels and independent pet sitting companies.
