New "Service for Service" Program Designed to Help Former Military Personnel Jumpstart a Successful Business
ENGLEWOOD, Colo — Bark Busters, the world's largest dog training company, has launched a new program to help U.S. veterans leverage the skills they've learned in the military into a successful business.
Bark Busters new "Service for Service" program awards a complete marketing launch, valued at $6,500, to U.S. veterans who become new Bark Busters franchise owners. Any honorably discharged veteran, regardless of military branch or dates served, is eligible to participate.
"Our new Service for Service program provides Bark Busters the opportunity to offer veterans a service in return for their service to our country," said Liam Crowe, CEO and master dog behavioral therapist, Bark Busters USA. "The startup phase of any business can be a challenge. We've designed a launch program that includes public relations, advertising, direct mail and business coaching—and for veterans, we'll pay for all four components. In this way, we're helping them achieve the flexibility and freedom that comes with business ownership."
According to Crowe, many former military personnel have become highly successful Bark Buster franchise owners because their service training gives them the focus and discipline required to excel as both business owner and dog behavioral therapist.
"Bark Busters dog behavioral therapists teach dog owners to establish leadership with their canine companions by applying the principles of pack law; these principles are similar to the chain of command in the military," Crowe explained. "That's why veterans have proven very successful in applying the Bark Busters methodology."
