A rare opportunity for a dog lover to step into a rewarding and fun career with a Franchise whose techniques have been successfully training dogs and their owners for 28 years. All techniques are dog-friendly, natural, and never use force. The Franchise has received the Best-of-the-Best award by the SPCA for their holistic, humane, training methods. Trainers work directly with clients at the clients’ homes, so there’s no overhead facility costs. Training focuses on the dog owners as much as the dogs, giving them the necessary tools to build a lasting, emotional bond based on trust and respect. It’s the only international training company that offers a lifetime support of the dog (and averages 2 to 3 visits in the lifetime of the dog). Dog owners love this program, and the Seller sometimes has to turn away business. Seller’s extensive territory extends from Reno/Sparks to Carson City to Incline Village. The field of dog services in Northern Nevada is in high demand as the $60 billion dollar a year pet industry continues to grow. Also growing at an unprecedented rate is the region’s population, many of whom are dog owners. Seller has enjoyed “speaking dog” for over 10-years, and is retiring. An established website gets most leads, but networking with veterinarian offices and dog food/supply stores for referrals would build the customer base if desired. Buyer could also increase the bottom line by making his/her own appointments. Buyer must attend a 3-week training which imparts all needed knowledge and techniques for the job. Franchise Transfer Fee is covered by the Seller.
Year Established: 2007
Facilities: Business is home-based with no overhead costs for a brick-and-mortar lease. Training is done exclusively in the client’s home.
Competition: A 28-year Franchise recognized for using natural methods proven to train any breed of dog on virtually any issue. #1 in the nation, winning Best-of-the-Best awards through the SPCA. Established over 10 years in Reno and in high demand.
Growth and Expansion: Seller enjoys a great word-of-mouth reputation and does very little advertising. Buyer could expand visibility, if desired, by advertising on radio and television, expanding an Internet presence, and by creating referrals through veterinarian offices and pet food stores. As Northern Nevada’s residential population continues its unprecedented growth, the demand for this service will only increase.
