Why Our Franchise Owners Don't Need A Dedicated Facility For Their Dog Training Business

Not looking forward to going back to the office? You’re not the only one. In recent months, experts have noticed a trend of people quitting their jobs rather than going back to the office. They call it The Great Resignation.

Maybe you worked from home for the first time during the pandemic and found you didn’t miss the commute one bit. Or maybe, working from home saved you thousands of dollars in expenses like transportation or childcare.

While many workers are switching to companies that allow working from home, others see this as the perfect opportunity to set up their own home-based franchise.

If you’re among the latter, we have splendid news for you. A Dog Training Elite franchise is the perfect option for the dog-loving entrepreneur!

Your Own Home-Based Business

The DTE franchise model is entirely home-based.

Training is carried out in your clients’ homes. This means you don’t need to rent a separate office space or set up training facilities or kennels.

With many people still avoiding leaving their homes unnecessarily, home-based training is a convenient option for many dog owners. This makes your business a much more attractive option for your clients.

But it’s not just convenient for the client. In our 40+ years of dog training experience, we’ve noticed that training dogs in a familiar environment yields better results. Dogs are less stressed, and their owners can learn how to use the training techniques in their own environment.

Low Overhead Costs

The obvious benefit of a home-based business is its initial investment costs.

Without the need to rent or build offices and training facilities, your initial costs are significantly lower than other pet industry businesses like doggy daycares or grooming services.

With an initial investment as low as $82,800*, you can set up a fully operational and profitable business from day one.

Work From Anywhere

A home-based Dog Training Elite franchise means you can work from anywhere. Instead of being tied to offices and training facilities, you can set up your office at home and work at your clients’ homes.

This flexibility keeps work exciting and allows you to bring the proven Dog Training Elite’s techniques to more clients!

It also helps you create a business that adapts to your goals and needs and grows with you. For example, without the hassle of renting training facilities, you have more time and resources to expand your business to other locations.

Recession-Proof Industry

Did you know that the pet industry is recession-proof?

It’s a bold claim, but it’s true. During the 2001 and 2008-09 recessions, pet-care spending grew 29% and 17% respectively. In 2020, pet service saw an 6.9% increase in sales since 2019.

With millions of people and families in lockdown, pet ownership skyrocketed. In fact, animal shelters placed almost 900,000 pets in homes across the country in 2020. It’s not surprising so many people brought a pet home during those tough months. A furry friend at home does wonders in reducing stress and anxiety in adults, and they’re great playmates for children.

With this surge in dog adoptions in recent months, it’s only natural pet care services like dog grooming, daycare, and training services are more in demand than ever.

Make A Difference

Are you looking to make a difference in the lives of dogs and their families?

A home-based business gives you the flexibility to take part in events and fundraisers and help animals in your community.

For example, all Franchise Owners are welcome to work with the Malinois Foundation — Dog Training Elite’s own non-profit dedicated to training service dogs for veterans with PTSD and other needs, first responders, women survivors, and children with special needs. Since its foundation in 2013, it has placed 50 service dogs and raised over $300,000 to help provide service dogs to people in need.

It’s an excellent way to serve your community and meet up with other Franchise Owners and the Dog Training Elite’s team.

Spend More Time With Your Pet

With a home-based dog training business, every day can be a bring your dog to work day! Even better than that — your dog can be a crucial part of your DTE franchise.

Many of our Franchise Owners work with their dogs to show training techniques to clients and their pets during sessions.

If you’ve always wanted to spend more time with your dog or give them a job to keep him mentally stimulated and active, this is a fantastic way to do so.

And the best part? Just because you’re working from home it doesn’t mean you have to go through all the process of setting up the business alone.

Dog Training Elite supports you every step of the way. You’ll get training in DTE’s methods, support to organize and launch your Grand Opening, follow-ups during the first six months of operations, and help from marketing experts.

And there you have it. Dog Training Elite is a fantastic opportunity to transition from a regular career to a profitable home-based business that makes a difference.

In its 40+ years in the pet care industry and its proven, balance-positive methods, Dog Training Elite has helped thousands of dogs and their owners in the comfort of their homes. Now, Founder John Mestas is bringing his proprietary method to cities all over the U.S. with low-overhead franchise opportunities for dog lovers and entrepreneurs who want to invest in the soaring pet care industry.
