This dog training & boarding business is selling at a low 2 multiple with a 367% return on investment! With 5 experienced staff members and boasting a 67% profit margin, they specialize in behavior modification and service dog training, which sets this company apart from the competition. They also have proven dog training methods and results. This boutique canine training business in Central Nebraska is well-positioned for growth and expansion into unique markets. The facility offers classes for individuals looking for dog behavior modification, basic obedience, and hunt training.  Boarding and daycare are available for those who require long-term or daytime care.  Off-site classes are available for veterinarians, rescue groups, as well as for corporate and independent pet stores.  Social media reviews are superb and truly show the effusive customer satisfaction with this company and their results.  The owner trains new employees and oversees operations.  The staff is competent and can manage the day-to-day tasks with little oversight.

The facility is well-suited to this business.  It features a 25 x 30 building for training and kennels, with three exercise yards.  There is a secondary office and training building on the property as well.  This space is potentially available outside the sale of the business and is available for continued lease in the short-term.  Expansion could be found by moving this business to a larger city to gain additional customers or potential foot traffic.  Additional growth may be found in building website traffic and exposure, adding more off-site training classes, as well as adding trainers to the staff to increase capacity. A new owner would not need to have experience with dog training to take over the business; exceptional customer service skills would be ideal.
