Home Dog Training
Dog Training for all Behavior Issues-including Puppy Training
Grand Rapids, MI
We have been in the Grand Rapids area since 2004. Our business has grown to the point where most of our new business comes from referrals: existing clients and area veterinarians who recommend us. All the training is done at our clients home so no overhead is needed for a training facility. This also helps in the training of the dogs as most of their behavior issues occur at the home where we can easily modify them. Our training methods are based on canine communication verses the use of treats or physical punishment so our clients see results sooner and they like the behavior changes they see with their dogs.
All office work is done at your home so again, no overhead expense for leasing office space. I currently run the business as a single operator and limit the number of new lessons I do a week so if you wanted to run the business with your spouse/partner, you would increase your sales. The website is maintained by home office so you can spend your time running the business not working on maintaining a website. You do not need any dog training experience as home office will set you up for all the training:hands on, lecture and reading.
If you enjoy working with people, like dogs and want to be on your own, this is the career for you.
HandyPro West Michigan
What's in it for YOU?
HandyPro of West Michigan is an established franchise, located in the super-popular Grand Rapids area - one of 'the best places to raise a family' in the US. HandyPro Int'l is a country-wide franchise brand, based in Plymouth, MI, and as such, is readily available for franchisee support. This franchise holds 3 listed territories, which include the Grand Rapids Metro area, all the way to the lakeshore communities of Holland and Muskegon. The business was originally based on providing excellent, trusted Handyman services, to answer a wide and important need. In recent time, the brand has expanded to include Home Modification services for Seniors and the Disabled. What is unique is that we represent a very wide range of vendors in the field, rather than being tied to one vendor - so we pride ourselves as being able to answer the unique clients' requests and needs with client-specific solutions. What that means is that, let's say the client may have a need for a barrier-free shower. HandyPro has many vendors - all of which are very highly reputable and reliable, with proven products - who can answer the specific need, such as special dimensions, finishes, features, OR something totally outside the box, which is site-built. And that same breadth of consideration has been given with the selection of walk-in tub vendors, grab-bar vendors, you-name-it vendors. As an owner, you don't need to possess Handyman or construction skills - your job is to acquire Craftsmen and Sub-Contractors with those skills, who allow you to run and maintain the business.
As an incoming Franchisee, you would need to complete the vetting process of the Franchisor, and the Franchisee training provided by the Franchisor, paid for by the seller. The purchase price includes the franchise territories, the book of customers belonging to HandyPro of West Michigan, and any remaining marketing materials, Craftsmen uniforms and Franchisee-furnished supplies. There is no product inventory, per se, as the materials for each project are purchased for that specific project (so your overhead is very limited in the way of inventory costs).
