Pet Franchise: Who We Look For

There are a lot of dog lovers out there, but not all of them know how to train their four-legged friends to obey commands and be on their best behavior. It takes time, patience and an expertise that everyday pet owners often lack.

There's a great need for pet services that provide this kind of training, so if you've been thinking about starting your own dog friendly business, owning a pet franchise through Dog Training Elite may be an ideal opportunity!

Do You Have What it Takes?

John Mestas, founder of Dog Training Elite, was tired of working a corporate job. It just didn't provide him with the sense of fulfillment he was looking for. So when he left his career and became a professional dog trainer in 1980, it was a total leap of faith. Today, there are 10 Franchise Owners who have joined the pack, but we'd like to extend our pet franchise opportunity to even more dog-loving entrepreneurs.

You'd be just right for this dog friendly business if you have a background in sales or teaching, if you're a natural leader, if you have excellent customer service skills and if you'd love to make a difference within your community. Last but not least, you need to be a little dog crazy. If that describes you, you're a perfect fit!

Our Elite Training System

What's so 'elite' about what we do? Well, the level of expertise we bring with over 40 years of experience is part of it. We also stand by our service and are happy to make return visits when clients need follow-up support. Our training is very client-focused such that every pet-owner relationship gets our undivided attention. We're not just training dogs, we are helping owners develop a strong, loving bond with their pet.

Low Overhead

As a home-based business requiring no storefront and limited staffing, the initial investment to start a Dog Training Elite is minimal, making for impressive profit margins.

Semi-Absentee Option

It's up to you to decide how involved you want to be with your pet franchise. You might take a hands-on approach and train full-time or you might lead a team of trainers, acting as more of an overseer.

Rewarding Work

Our Franchise Owners will tell you how satisfying it is to have a lasting impact in the lives of pet owners and their dogs. Training service dogs, correcting misbehavior and forging positive relationships means it's in your power to have incredible impact.

"We step into situations where disobedient dogs are causing real stress in the family. When we fix that, the thanks we get from the owners provides me with a sense of fulfillment I'd never experienced before owning this business."
