Doggie Daycare vs Dog Training Elite

For first-time entrepreneurs looking for a franchise opportunity in the thriving pet care industry, the sheer amount of money needed for an initial investment in a doggie daycare franchise can be daunting.

It’s not just the money, either; when you own a doggie daycare facility, you’re looking at a number of complicated moving parts. If that sounds less than ideal, but you still want to break into an exceptionally strong market sector like pet care, the Dog Training Elite opportunity may be just right for you!
