Dog Bakery ~ The Business For You?
Before you ever start a
dog or pet related business, you need to ask yourself one VERY important
question - Do you like dogs? Not just the cutesy dog like the one
you own, but the slobbery drooly "can't wait to jump up"
kind of dog too. If not, definately rethink your pet business!
Why are dog bakeries so
popular for entrepreneurs? The answer is quite simple - they have
an extremely low overhead with a very high profit margin. Most people
who run a dog bakery business do the cooking right in their own home
- with their own oven. Right there, you have saved an incredible amount
of money on equipment.
Think again. Most dog treats can be made for only pennies each, although
the cost raises slightly when dealing with organic dog treats. But
most ingredients can be bought right in your grocery store's bulk
department, saving you lots of money right there.
Packaging? Many dog bakeries
utilize simple paper bag or plastic bag packaging for their treats,
although you can offer fancier "gift" style packs, such
as ones that come in appropriately themes fabric bags tied with raffia.
Labels? Many just do them
right right on their very own computer, saving money, and making it
quite easy to create unique labels that are appropriate to each and
every treat and biscuit offered.
Each year, dog bakeries
are gaining more and more popularity. Why is this? Because more and
more people are looking at their pet's diets and wanting only the
best for their four legged best friends. Not very surprising, many
dogs eat better than their owners!
