FAQS

State laws and local council laws will affect the suitability of franchise locations due to zoning restrictions, and individual councils will have specific requirements for the establishment of a facility. For example, in Victoria a dog daycare or training centre must be located in an industrial zone. In many ways, industrial zoning is favourable in that it ensures that you are not competing with high demand retail/commercial use zoning, and suits other requirements of the business.

There is some variability in turnover, mainly due to the sizing/scaling options. When we reach step 4 you will be provided with a financial model that allows you to enter data to see how the business is likely to grow. This will also assist you in making an assessment of how large you may want the facility to be, in order to scale appropriately and reach your financial goals.
From start to finish the entire application process will take approximately 3 months. The process is thorough to ensure you are provided all the information you need to make a well-informed assessment and to allow time to organise any third party (typically legal and financial) assistance you may wish to have to work through this process.
The training process begins with a 4-week franchise induction and training program at our West Footscray flagship centre. You will be working alongside our highly skilled team to prepare you in all areas of the business. Once the 4-week program has completed, we will create a tailored onsite training/development program to assist you moving forward. The team is heavily invested in your success.
We are very much looking for owner/operators that have a passion for working with animals. We aren’t looking exclusively for highly skilled trainers – people with the interest in and drive to learn and develop their dog handling/training skills and knowledge are also welcome. We are equally interested in a person’s business experience and acumen. The combination of a strong passion to work with dogs and a love of business make the ideal Pro Dog franchisee.
In the course of our recruitment process the franchisee will be required to find a suitable site. We can provide some assistance with this. Once the site is found it is likely there will be specific council permit and other requirements. The permit process generally takes a minimum of 3 months to be approved, and will vary between individual councils. Our advice is to find a suitable property/lease that is subject to permit approval. The facility fit out generally takes no longer than 6-8 weeks, pending the availability of trades in your area.
Yes, you sure can. Once you have established your first centre and you are achieving your financial goals and meeting the company’s standards in all areas, you can absolutely approach us about opening another centre. We are keen to see you grow and develop your franchise areas and provide high quality services to as many people and dogs as possible.
