Can I Start a Pet Business From Home?

If you enjoy working with animals but would like to maintain a balanced lifestyle, you’re in the right place! Owning a Dog Training Elite doesn’t just allow you to work from the comforts of your own home, our pet franchise has a semi-absentee option that is even more hands-off, should you prefer a behind-the-scenes approach.

Not just any pet business for sale can offer as much, so if this opportunity has caught your attention, we’d love to tell you more about this fulfilling career path.

"I was working for an international company. I was just another number to them. I thought, 'I don't want to go back to work for somebody.' I decided I wanted to train dogs professionally."

What makes this a good home business?

In order to operate a pet franchise through Dog Training Elite, you’ll be able to function with a simple home office setup. You can either act as primary dog trainer, meeting with clients in their homes and teaching group classes while leaving the administrative tasks to an employee, or have it the other way around. Send a trainer off to meet with pet owners while you run the office.

Can I bring my dog with me to training sessions?

Absolutely! We actually encourage those Franchise Owners who meet with customers to use their own pet as the model student, demonstrating the very skills you’ll be teaching.
