Regardless of your experience you will receive extensive training on our systems, strategies, business and culture. To find out more about our training process get in touch with our sales team.

Do I need to be the day to day dog trainer to own a Dog Wizard franchise, or can I be an investor/owner with trainers I hire?2020-07-03T13:37:43-04:00

No. We have several franchise owners that are not the day to day trainers.  These owners/investors have hired trainers that are trained within our systems to do the day to day training operations.  This is a supported model within our system designed and built to operate with ease. The trainers you hire will have to go through our entire training program and be approved to operate by one of our Lead Trainer Certification Teams.
