A successful proven business model

Our franchise is a home-based business, which means low-cost investment and high profit margins. Our franchisees conduct lessons at the dog owner's home, so there are no premises required. This keeps start-up costs and overhead low, which in turn maximises the profit of the business. They are typically a one-person operation so there is no need for hiring, firing, or managing employees or additional labour costs. Some franchisees contract part-time admin staff to increase their own productivity and time.

Our reputation, highly effective and proven training techniques have allowed us to offer a premium service to our clients, which provides a higher profit margin.

Continued growth

The need for dog training and dog behaviour services has never been greater. The United Kingdom spent around £8 billion on their pets in 2021, which equates to a 75% increase in the last 10 years. The growth of households owning a dog has increased exponentially in the last decade too. In 2011 the estimated UK dog population was 7.5 million increasing to over 12.5 million in 2021, which is an increase of 66%. The COVID pandemic has only accelerated this growth, with the United Kingdom adding over 3.5 million dogs to their homes since the pandemic. There are more first-time dog owners than ever before who need our help and guidance, and people are now spending more time at home with their dogs than ever before.
