Well, I've made a decision. I talked to my trainer and helper. He's always honest and says how it is.
I asked him if he thinks that I am good enough to open a serious pet obedience business and he said "go for it!"
I talked to my mother and asked for permission to use her kennel name within my future kennel name.
Anyhow, I basically invest Indra's money into the business for advertisement etc.
On top of that I got registered wit Boces to take the GED in April. I need to be pro-active and why not do something I love anyways.
The local AKC only offers classes during the summer time. Winter and Spring, there is NOTHING going on. The other professional business is not bad but they can't help me. They are really good with Rescue Dogs and Behavioral Problems and have great dog aggression classes etc. So at this point I'd refer any serious behavioral issues to them and solely focus on the obedience part.
I also thought about a discount from military family to military family and about a "Rescue Special". So with the local prices and the Discounts I'm cheaper than anyone else and would still make a decent amount.
So both would get a good discount on any Services offered.
I got business cards, I'm getting something for the car, advertisement in the local newspaper, flyers that I will hang out in stores and I'm going to see that I can hang and lay something out at the local vet offices and talk to the rescues if they need trainers.
I also checked about the taxes, will get a business license and I'm good insurance wise.
Also, since I've already boarded several dogs, I am going to get reviews on that too.
...still can't believe I'm actually doing it. If I stay on top of this and win Ft.Drum this can work! Especially since we are a military family ourselves.
