Pet Franchise: Bring Your Dog to Work

Within the business world, it’s helpful to be able to work with a compatible partner whom you admire. Some people are fortunate enough to have such an arrangement, while others only wish that were the case. When you’re a trainer through Dog Training Elite, you get to team up with the most preferred partner you could ask for: your very own dog. There aren’t many employment opportunities that allow such companions onsite, but within this pet franchise, it’s an absolute must!

Multiple Revenue Streams

Many of our competitors offer obedience training, puppy services, protection training, and anxiety and aggression training. Dog Training Elite broadens that scope to include service dog training, therapy animal training and military/retired veteran dog training. With seven options to choose from, we’re prepared to meet a wider variety of needs.

Semi-Absentee Model

Our Franchise Owners can choose their degree of involvement within the company. For those who like being at the heart of the action, they’re welcome to run the business and train the dogs themselves. For those who like a behind-the-scenes approach, they might prefer to hire a trainer who works with clients, leaving them to manage the back end.
