Dog Treat Business Business Overview:

If you are a dog lover and are looking for a way to turn your pooch passion into a thriving business, you must consider a dog treat business. There is plenty of room in the pet industry for newcomers to nose their way in and make a hefty return on their investment. A recent survey showed that over 45 million homes in the U.S. have at least one dog and over 77 million dogs live in those homes. Pet owners spend over 47 billion (yes, billion) dollars a year on their furry friends. Clearly the pet industry is enormous and everyone who owns pets spends money on them. The market is obviously ripe with possibilities and a dog biscuit business would be a great way to tap into it. Making and selling homemade dog treats is easy and fun. Best of all, you can do it from home. You don’t even need to be an experienced baker to be a success with this online business idea. You just need a few supplies and an enthusiastic attitude to be the proud owner of a booming dog treat business. You can get this business idea up and running by selling to local shops or you can create an online business where you ship your specialty dog treats all over the world.

If you sell your treats online, you can easily see what new products you need to make and ship out. If you sell your treats in stores, check with the store owners to see if their stock is running low. Take a look at your supplies and if you need more baking ingredients, place an order or get to the store. You will spend some of your day on marketing, whether it be online or with store owners who are interested in selling your treats. If you have bakers working for you, you’ll check in with them so they know what orders need to be filled. Finally, you’ll want to take a look at your finances to ensure spending is on track and invoices and bills have been paid.

About Your Customers:

Your ultimate customers are dogs, but since they have no pockets in which to carry their cash, your intermediary customers are dog owners. You will market your treats to these owners either directly via the Internet or through local pet stores.

What You Need to Start:

  • Baking materials
  • Treat cookie cutters
  • Computer

The Good:

  • The pet industry is huge; there is plenty of room for new business.
  • Start up costs are low.
  • Return on investment is high.
  • No experience needed.
  • This business can easily be run part time from home.

The Bad:

  • Demand can quickly outpace supply if you don’t have a good grip on customer needs.
  • It can take time and patience to find the recipes and products that sell consistently.
