What We Look for in a Franchise Owner

Generally, we are looking for people with business and leadership experience. Below we go over more specifics of qualities and skills we look for in possible Franchise Owners.

We want our Franchise Owners to be natural leaders who have the motivation to work with their teams and get things done. If you are the type of person to sit back and let everyone else do the work, franchising with Dog Training Elite might not be the best fit for you. But, if you consider yourself a great leader, getting into the dog training business will be easy.
When you own a business, you will encounter problems daily that will need some creative thinking and problem–solving. Being able to think on your feet and quickly solve small and big issues as they happen is highly desirable in a Franchise Owner.
In a dog training business, you'll get to interact with lots of cute dogs, but what we look for in this industry is people skills. You need to be able to talk and interact with all kinds of people. You also need to be emotionally intelligent to better understand and relate to the individuals you encounter. This type of business is very people–driven, so having people skills is necessary for success.
A significant aspect of owning a business is the financial side of things. If you do not have a basic understanding of business financials, you might not run things very well. People who have strong financial literacy do an excellent job of managing businesses.
Running your own business requires a lot of self–motivation and a desire to keep working and moving forward. If you lack motivation, you probably won't be able to keep a whole franchise moving. Motivated people get things done and perform well when running a business.

Dog Training Business Opportunities with Dog Training Elite

The chance to start your own dog training business is a huge opportunity. As we mentioned above, you do not need any experience with pets to run a pet training business. Once you hire a lead dog trainer, they will take care of everything on the dog training side. All you need to worry about is making the business a success. And, with our semi–absentee owner option, you can even keep your current day job if you wish!

The pet industry is booming right now, and more people now own pets than ever before. In fact, many younger couples think of their pets as their children and are happy to put them into the best training schools. When you open a Dog Training Elite franchise, you'll be able to capitalize on the many customer opportunities in your local area.

This industry has proven to be recession–resistant because people will always need pet training and services. And with the many pet services we offer, you will always have something customers want!

Another benefit of starting the Dog Training Elite franchise is our home–based training program. Because the trainers go straight to the dog owner's homes, you do not need a physical facility to run your business. Because of this, Franchise Owners can get their dog business up and running in as little as 4–6 weeks from signing their agreement!

At Dog Training Elite, you have control over your work life, and you can create a work/play balance suited to your needs. No more working on someone else’s terms; start a dog training business and do things your way. Call us today and become a part of this booming industry!
