WHY BUY A DOG FRANCHISE
A franchise comes with a trusted brand name, proven systems that are easy to replicate; training, support, profit forecasts. According to Entrepreneur Magazine, franchises have the lowest failure rate of any type of business.
Buying a franchise also means all the hard work of starting a new business is done for you. You can skip the business plan, the market research and product testing, because you already know what you are going to get. There is always a helping hand to guide you too, so although the business is yours, you’re never quite going it alone. You’re still part of a team. Dogknows anticipates their solopreneurs will operate with a 60% profit margin* within the first year of starting up.
Buying a franchise still requires thought. We tell all our potential franchisees to do their research thoroughly. Bear in mind that a good franchise should make it easy for you to be up and running quickly, it should help you to problem-solve with fail-proof systems, it should guide your marketing and advertising, offer you leads and business support so you are free to look after your customers and build your empire.
We offer all that and more. Dogknows is the only dog walking and training franchise to be a practitioner organisation with the Animal Behaviour & Training Council and one of just a few dog walking franchises to be approved by the British Franchise Association. That means something. It means you can depend on us.
