Investing in a Dog Training Franchise
Learn How to Identify the Best Pet Franchises for the Next Step in Your Career.
Whether or not you’re a dog lover, you’ve likely heard that the last couple of years has escalated a decades–long boom in pet businesses. People increasingly treat their pets as true members of the family, rivaling children in the rankings for attention and care. Many pet–related businesses have seen substantial growth in recent years, and Dog Training Elite is no exception. If you’re thinking of entering the pet business and investing in a dog training franchise, keep a few pointers in mind.
Why Invest in a Dog Training Franchise?
It’s a common misconception that investing in a dog training franchise requires a deep love of dogs. There are many great reasons to seek out the best pet franchise for your goals and start a new career trajectory—even if you don’t have a dog of your own. One great reason is the current state of the pet industry. The popularity of adopting new pets in the last few years and social trends around providing for pets have created plenty of opportunities for growth within the pet industry.
In addition to the chance to become part of a thriving industry, many people choose to invest in a dog training franchise to give back to their community. At Dog Training Elite, we educate others about the best ways to interact with their dog and assist with training to help dogs form stronger bonds with their families. In doing so, we can help make neighborhoods safer and happier. Those who love animals can find fulfillment with a great pet franchise, but so can those who are passionate about the humans around them.
Choosing the route of becoming a Franchise Owner also allows you to skip frustrating periods of lonely trial and error and instead lean on the built-in support of a franchise. Dog Training Elite Franchise Owners receive upfront training as well as ongoing support to set you up for the next exciting step in your career. Plus, opting to invest with a franchise means gaining name recognition and marketing resources to give you a head start in earning business.
"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."

Identifying the Best Pet Franchise
While the pet industry is seeing significant growth, investing in just any pet franchise is not necessarily foolproof. Dig into the following details to identify the best pet franchise for your needs, goals, and preferences.
Some franchises may require a particular level of experience or education, which can help you narrow down the right option. In some situations, you may need hands–on dog training experience to run a thriving dog training franchise.
Dog Training Elite does not require prior experience or particular certifications. We will train you before you get to work and support you every step of the way. Depending on the business model you select, you don’t have to work hand–on with dogs or clients at all.
In order to ensure you invest with the best pet franchise for your needs and goals, check out the types of business models offered. With Dog Training Elite, you can choose from two ownership options:
In an owner-operator model, you’ll work to train dogs, manage clients, and handle all of the operations of the franchise. This is a great option if you’re excited about working with dogs for a living or taking your dog to work with you!
Franchise Owners with Dog Training Elite also have the option of a semi-absentee model, which allows for greater flexibility and is much less hands–on. In this model, you’ll have a team of trainers who handle the actual dog training and client interaction. Meanwhile, you’ll focus on building that great team, scaling your business, and being a great leader.
This model allows Franchise Owners to continue to work a day job, spend plenty of time with family, take up hobbies, or oversee multiple territories. The flexibility of a semi–absentee business model means you can choose what your days look like!
Another important deciding factor when seeking out the best pet franchise for you is the initial investment. Dog Training Elite Franchise Owners pay a franchise fee of $110,000* (3-Pack) and generally pay an initial investment between $159,050-$186,750*. In 2022, Franchise Owners with Dog Training Elite made an average of $973,756* in gross revenue and $187,237* in average net profit.
