Lisle, Illinois (PRWEB) December 30, 2011 - Dogs Love Running!, the nation’s most unique, fun, and exciting dog walking franchise, is now conducting a “star search” for fun, savvy, and energetic franchisees in Illinois.
“We’re very excited to be looking for all-stars to join our team”, says John Reh, president of Dogs Love Running! Franchising, a Lisle, Illinois-based company. “We’re looking for incredible people that want to follow through on their dream job and work with animals for a living. With a Dogs Love Running! franchise, we make that dream job come to life easily and quickly.”
Dogs Love Running! is the only pet franchise in the nation that specializes in dog running and pet exercise. Their flagship service is to literally go and run with dogs. By offering customers the unique and valuable service of actually running with their four-legged friends, DLR! franchisees and their reliable staff can give clients’ pets a way to burn off excess energy. With high-mileage runs of up to an hour in length, even the most energetic dogs will come back tired and happy.
In addition to dog running, franchisees also provide dog walking services as well as pet sitting for all types of household pets.
Mr. Reh states that Illinois and, in particular, the Chicago city and suburban areas are prime for growth in 2012. “Since we’re based in the Chicago area, we can offer not only in-person training, but also in-person support after a franchisee opens up their location. With the population and demographics in this area plus the personal hand-holding we can offer, we see many franchisees joining up with us in the coming year.”
Dogs Love Running! is a home-based dog walking/running and pet sitting franchise business that requires very little money to start up and operate. “We designed this to be a full-time, but flexible, job that someone can run out of their home”, says the company president. “Since we’re a service-based business, there are no big investments like inventory or office leases. We’re a lean and efficient business that can basically be run from a laptop from just about anywhere in the world with internet access.”
“One of the most common questions we get is if you have to be a ‘runner’ to do this business”, says John. “Although a franchisee would find it beneficial to be able to run or jog themselves, they don’t have to be a hard-core runner primarily because they’ll have staff making the pet visits for them.”
He says that some of the most helpful characteristics for a franchisee to have are to be fun-loving, energetic, savvy, and to love working with not only animals, but also people. “Being a ‘people person’ is just as important as being a ‘dog person’ in this job. It’s tough to find both of those qualities in the same person and that’s why we’re conducting this ‘star search.’”
