After years of experience in boarding and training dogs, founder, John Mestas, noticed that dogs’ training fell apart when they went home. This was because their owners weren’t there working with them and learning the training alongside their dogs. By creating this innovative in-home training model that works with all people involved with the dog, Dog Training Elite has created a sustainable training program that allows people to fall back in love with their dog. 

Many dog training brands don’t offer everything that Dog Training Elite provides and won’t work with children or certain dogs. Dog Training Elite’s willingness to work with all types of people and all types of dogs makes it primed for success in any location.

The pet industry is $261 billion and growing, offering a recession-resistant business opportunity to franchise candidates looking for a quick ramp-up, strong support system, and scalable business model that doesn’t require building out a large retail space.

Being so involved with people and their dogs sets Dog Training Elite apart from other brands. Dog Training Elite trainers enter the homes of the dogs it works with to engage with them in their daily environment. The brand functions as a one-stop shop for all dog training needs. Being able to offer multiple services benefits clients and franchisees. Dog Training Elite provides service dogs to veterans, first responders, women survivors of abuse/sexual assault, and children with fragile medical needs—all free—through its 501c3, The Malinois Foundation. 

Dog Training Elite recently improved internal support systems and rolled out regional packs. These packs are designed to help franchise owners in the same area communicate better and ask each other questions. Franchisees can also reach out to corporate at any time with any questions they may have.

The corporate office has grown in employees. In that growth, the brand has provided franchisees more opportunities for ongoing coaching. Dog Training Elite is a family-based business and treats franchise owners as such. No one is left to struggle on their own, and a team effort is put in to support all franchise owners. 

There is no build-out required. Franchisees can get their business up and running in four to six weeks after signing. Franchise owners can also be semi-absentees and hire a lead trainer so that they can focus on scaling the business. Franchise owners get 23–58 hours of in-class training and then 71–100 hours of on-site training to ensure they’re more than adequately prepared for the job. 

Our Franchise owners love the fact that they can take control over their work-life balance and set their own schedules. They have the ability to hire trainers to complete the dog training so they can focus their time and energy on growing the business. This is a special opportunity for franchise owners looking to make a long-lasting impact in their community and do something meaningful each day while making a substantial living at the same time!
