A strong entrepreneurial mindset, love of dogs, and excellent customer service skills are the key attributes being sought by the company. Dealer responsibilities include sales, installation, training, and service. All dealerships are independently owned and operated and serve protected Authorized Sales Areas.
The pet industry has a history of consistent growth that sets it apart from other opportunities. According to American Pet Products Association, Americans spent $55.7 billion dollars on pet-related products in 2013. Damian Raffele, a pet industry analyst, notes that “during the last four years while many industries experienced decline, the U.S. Pet industry saw an average annual growth of 5.4%.” That trend is expected to continue.
The DogWatch Hidden Fence has been designated a Consumers Digest® Best Buy since 1998. Much of the success of the DogWatch Hidden Fence can be attributed to its unique features, such as the patented SafeLink® Digital FM Design, significantly longer battery life than other brands, and a lifetime warranty. Another important aspect of the success of the DogWatch Brand is the commitment to customer service both from the corporate office and the local dealer network.
“Our proprietary features and Dealer Support Program are unique within the product category,” said Fred King, President and CEO. “These attributes, when paired with a highly committed entrepreneur, consistently produce strong business results.”
According to Brent Potvin, DogWatch of Metro Atlanta, “No other company in this business puts as much into the development and manufacturing quality of their products and support of their dealer network as DogWatch. This has been a huge help to us with competing more effectively in our sales territory.”
DogWatch Dealers come from a wide range of backgrounds. “A large number of dealerships are owned and operated by couples who both actively participate in the business. Many are owned by women,” says Dennis Manitsas, Vice President of Sales. “What they have in common is that they are comfortable with the responsibility of owning their own business, they value good customer service and they enjoy their work.”
Startup costs in open markets are typically about $20,000 to purchase products, installation equipment, and set up a marketing program. There are no franchise or other fees. A storefront is not required. In smaller markets, the DogWatch Dealership is often a compliment to another compatible business. DogWatch, Inc. offers full training and ongoing support as well as incentive programs to reward dealers for growth.
