Why You Should Invest In A Pet Franchise

If you’re interested in self-employment but not sure how to start, consider investing in a pet franchise. Joining a franchise allows you to experience all the benefits of business ownership without many of the same risks.

As you’re investing in a business that has proven successful, half of the work is already done. Franchise Owners get to experience the pros of self-employment while navigating their chosen industry with the assistance of a corporate team.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused an economic depression, which may have you searching for “recession-proof businesses to start.” If you're ready to jump into entrepreneurship, there are many strong reasons to consider the pet industry!

How The Pet Care Industry Can Withstand Recession Pressure

While no company can truly claim to be a “recession-proof franchise,” pet franchises can thrive in both economic highs and lows. After all, not even the economic and health uncertainties of a pandemic can keep pet owners from caring for their animals. Dog Training Elite answers this demand with quality dog training services. One benefit of self-employment? Stability in an economic downturn.

As a self-employed worker:

One benefit of owning your own pet franchise is that you can't get fired.

Semi-Absentee Model

Our Franchise Owners can choose their degree of involvement within the company.

How Valuable is the Pet Industry?

Everyone wants their own four–legged friend, so the pet industry is booming right now! The global pet industry is worth over $222 billion, and we expect it to grow to over $325 billion by 2028. With those numbers, building your pet franchise will feel like a breeze!

This growth within the pet industry is mainly due to millennials buying more pets than previous generations and treating them like family members. Because these millennials love their pets like family, they provide higher care for them, including better quality food, attentive veterinary visits, and proper exercise and training.

Not only does the pet industry have a considerable monetary value, but it also carries substantial sentimental value. Humans love their pets, so providing a service that improves the lives of pets and their owners is joyful and fulfilling. When you franchise with Dog Training Elite, you feel that every day! Additionally, when you work in the pet industry, you get to see and hang out with adorable furry animals all day. Who wouldn't love that?

What is a Profitable Pet Business?

Companies that provide pet services and products that benefit pets and their humans are very profitable, but how much can Franchise Owners expect to make? According to the 2020 Franchise 500, the average financial investment is over $750,000. Opening your own Dog Training Elite pet franchise costs just $159,050-$186,750*—a fraction of the average cost.

In addition to the low initial investment, as a business that doesn't require a physical location, Dog Training Elite has low overhead costs. Combined with high revenue potential, you can work on becoming a profitable business owner quicker than most. Dog Training Elite average gross sales for 2022 were $973,756*, with owners making a net profit of $187,237*.
