With several excellent DogWatch Dealership opportunities currently available, we have been thinking about the attributes of successful DogWatch Dealers. According to “Married to the Job (And Each Other)” a February 14, 2011 Wall Street Journal article, “about a third of all family businesses are husband and wife teams.” The article refers to these working spouses as ‘copreneurs,’ noting that “many couples say the complimentary personalities that brought them together make them logical business partners.”
It’s probably not surprising that copreneurs have a significant presence in the DogWatch Dealer network and are at the center of many successful Dealerships. Chicago, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Columbus, Ohio are but a few of the many markets where husband and wife owned DogWatch Dealerships have been recognized for outstanding sales growth and customer service.
DogWatch dealers from 31 states and 5 countries met in Texas this past weekend, February 6-8, 2015, for the 21st Annual DogWatch Dealer Meeting. The 2015 Dealer Meeting was a special one as it coincides with DogWatch’s 25th Anniversary. More than 200 Dealers, employees and family members attended the meeting at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort in Lost Pines, TX, 30 minutes east of Austin.
DogWatch, maker of the safest and most reliable hidden pet fence in the business, celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2015. In 1990, Fred King, DogWatch’s Founder and President, had a problem – his family needed to keep their feisty pet cat Slapshot and her claws away from the new furniture in their living room. After looking at the options available, King saw an intriguing business opportunity, and set out to make a quality, dependable and technologically advanced pet containment solution to meet the growing needs of pet owners like himself. “25 years later,” says King, “DogWatch has grown into an international industry leader, and our Hidden Fence systems have given nearly 500,000 dogs the freedom to play outdoors safely.”
