Why This Pet Training Franchise Isn't Just For Pet Lovers
There Are Many Reasons To Open Your Own Pet Training Franchise Besides Loving Pets!
Not A Dog-Lover? That's Ok!
Whether you’re the world’s most enthusiastic dog lover or whether you prefer to admire four-legged friends from afar, you may be surprised by the lucrative opportunity that comes with opening a pet training franchise . On top of entering a quickly-growing market with strong returns, you get to choose how involved you are in the day-to-day operations of your business.
With Dog Training Elite, the process of opening your own pet franchise has never been smoother. Take these elements into consideration as you decide whether it’s the right career move for you.
In 2020, the pet product industry hit a historic high of $103.6 billion in sales.
The American Pet Products Association expects sales of $109.6 billion in 2021, a continued trend of strong growth.
While the market was down for “other pet services” including training in 2020, experts expect to see numbers tick back up as closures from the pandemic stop playing a role in consumer choices. With 70% of U.S. households now owning a pet, many of whom took on the responsibility of pet ownership during lockdown, the logic follows that many households are taking on the task of training new pets this year.
Thanks in part to the recent “puppy boom”, the pet industry, including pet training, is on a path of steady growth.
It’s no wonder that an industry with such tremendous growth also offers strong returns. However, it’s also important to note that not every business owner in the pet industry will turn a great profit in the next few years. There is still a strategy required for success, even in a very strong industry.
Opening a franchise with Dog Training Elite means you get to enjoy the benefits of being associated with a company with a proven track record and a strong brand. Plus, having an established brand behind you means you’ll spend less time on trial-and-error as you start your business, and more time enjoying the strong returns and simple business model instead. Franchise Owners enjoy ongoing support and training so that your marketing and operations take off without a snag.
"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."

In addition to offering the opportunity to make impressive returns, opening a pet training franchise with Dog Training Elite requires an up-front investment that is comparatively very low. Because your local area operates on a home-based model, you don’t need to invest in a physical space for your business. Instead, pet training takes place in clients’ homes.
With a starting up-front investment requirement around $83K and quick turnaround times of only 4-6 weeks to get your business up and running, you can begin to see profits from your new pet franchise extremely quickly.
With a semi-absentee model, owning a franchise with Dog Training Elite doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be spending every waking hour around dogs from now on. In reality, Franchise Owners in this model only need to work a few hours a week! Choose between owner-operator and semi-absentee models to accommodate your ideal lifestyle while earning a steady profit.
If you would prefer not to work hands-on with dogs, a semi-absentee model is perfect for you. With a semi-absentee model, you have a team to perform the dog training duties for your business while you oversee operations and play a leadership role. Opening a pet franchise and running your business on a semi-absentee basis means you’ll still have time to live life on your own terms. Whether you’ve got another job you’re passionate about, you’re looking for more time at home with your family, or you’d like to open in multiple territories, you’ll have the flexibility to keep up with other aspects of life while also running your franchise.
On the other hand, if you do enjoy being around and training dogs, we’ve still got the perfect business model option for you! You can work as the owner-operator of your franchise if you’d like to act as a trainer while also managing business operations. On top of the opportunity to make strong returns off of a low investment, opening a pet training franchise with Dog Training Elite gives you the chance to help strengthen the bonds between dogs and their humans and make an impact in your community.
