About

Dogs are family for all of us at Instinct Dog Behavior & Training®. It’s that simple principle that guides us as we help dogs and owners happily co-exist every day. Now, we’re looking for franchise partners to help us bring our vision of A Kinder World through Dog Training™ to thousands more dogs and owners in urban markets across the country.

The Opportunity

The pet industry is recession-resistant and is projected to reach almost $100 billion by the end of the decade.

  • 68% of U.S. households own a pet. 89.7 million of those pets are dogs
  • Spending on pets is rising annually in the U.S
  • Consumers spend more on companion animals than nearly any other category
  • The pet market has more than tripled in size since 1994, growing from $17 billion to over $60 billion in 2015 in the U.S. alone

Picture This

An Instinct Dog Behavior & Training® franchise is a brick-and-mortar dog training facility offering our signature positive reinforcement board & train camps, private lessons, behavior consulting, and alumni boarding services, all with 24/7 on-site supervision.

The Instinct model works best in dense urban markets, but can be applied anywhere dogs and families live.
