Business Description

Established and profitable dog behavior business in Chicago, IL offered for sale at $38,300. This turnkey business is perfect for a buyer who is ready to expand their Chicago training business or to quickly establish themselves as a trainer with a reputable brand in a new market.

This business would be an excellent fit for an owner who wants to actively offer training services, one who has an existing pet services business he or she wishes to expand, or even a non-trainer owner who wants to manage employee or contract trainers offering the training services.

Incorporated in 2006.
Highly ranked and mobile-optimized website, which has been active for 12 years.
Currently operating at full capacity with clients booking 2-3 weeks in advance.
Established reputation with multiple referral sources including veterinarians, local rescues, dog-walking, and dog daycare companies in Chicago, as well as current and former clients.
Great immediate growth potential for an owner who wishes to increase staffing and/or expand service areas.

Includes many valuable assets, such as the website (professional design, copywriting, SEO, and security), client database, and efficient administrative, scheduling, and client corresponding processes—not reflected in the asking price.

Price Factors and Growth Potential:
Established business with 12 years of reliable performance and loyal referral sources.
Price is based on average annual net income (after owner salary) for years 2015-2019.
Current price is based on one full-time trainer.
New owner can begin taking training clients and drawing a salary right away.

Business includes a variety of options for growth, including:
Expand Service Areas: Currently business has more inquiries than it can service and refers an estimated $36,000/year of training revenue to other trainers. Immediate growth potential includes previously serviced areas - Loop, Gold Coast, River North, and surrounding, as well as the North Shore.

Increase Services Offered: Group classes were a primary source of income from 2006-2011—re-introducing group classes would increase revenue. Additionally, if the new owner can provide dog walking, overnight care, daycare, or grooming services, there are enormous revenue growth opportunities as most of the business’s clients utilize these services.

Hire More Professional Consultants: Due to the business name, business receives a lot of clients dealing with serious behavioral issues that need to be referred to CSAT trainers or behaviorists. There’s potential to increase revenue by hiring a veterinary behaviorist or CSAT trainer.

Additionally, because the business is well-established and optimized, if the new owner wants to bring in positive, professional dog trainers around the country to work as consultants, there are tremendous expansion opportunities.

Ideal candidate is a dedicated, responsible, ethical dog training business owner looking to expand services or positive, certified trainer who wants to grow brand with an established name; the business structure enables a non-trainer owner to manage this thriving business.

You must be personable, provide the highest quality of animal care and customer service, and have the integrity to do right by the people who trust you.
