ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In honor of Veterans Day, Bark Busters USA announces it was ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2011 Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I. Jobs Magazine. Bark Busters USA, the world’s largest dog training company, honors military veterans all year round by offering service members discounts up to 15% off the franchise fee, allowing veterans to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.

“Numerous veterans have become successful Bark Buster franchise owners because their service training gives them the focus and discipline required to excel as both business owners and dog behavioral therapists”
“The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” says Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Bark Busters in this elite group, and is testimony to its world-class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities.”
“Numerous veterans have become successful Bark Buster franchise owners because their service training gives them the focus and discipline required to excel as both business owners and dog behavioral therapists,” says Liam Crowe, CEO and master dog behavioral therapist, Bark Busters USA. “Bark Busters dog behavioral therapists teach dog owners to establish leadership with their canine companions by applying the principles of the canine social structure; these principles are similar to the chain of command in the military. That’s why veterans have proven very successful in applying the Bark Busters methodology.”
