Like children, our pets need to be trained in order to behave properly. Since pet parents spend billions on their pets annually, they are willing to spend a little extra to tame their furry family members. If you are an entrepreneur who is looking to cash in on the booming pet industry by opening a training franchise, look no further than Bark Busters Home Dog Training. The brand was founded in 1989 and began franchising five years later in 1994. Since that time, the dog training franchise has grown to hundreds of locations across the country. The ideal franchise owner for the brand loves dogs and is passionate about helping them learn. As a franchisee, you will enjoy the flexibility that comes with operating a home-based business by being your own boss and making your own schedule. Customers will appreciate the transparency that comes with seeing their dogs trained from the comfort of their homes. You have the option to be involved in training the dogs or hiring others to do that while you play a more administrative role.
As a franchise owner, you can expect an initial training program that is broken down into classroom and on-the-job instruction. You can also expect grand opening assistance, a hotline to call when you need help, meetings and conventions to discuss best practices, marketing tools, and ongoing support for the entire length of your time with the franchise. The initial investment ranges between $67,700 - $99,500. The company's initial franchise fee is $37,500, which is discounted for veterans to incentivize them to invest.
