It seems to me that there are quite a lot of people who aren't really happy with what they're doing, or that they're just looking for some kind of change in their life. I talk to a lot of dog lovers who tell me that they wish they could do what I do, but some of them seem to have the idea that it doesn't make money.
Some people think dog breeding is a just a hobby and wouldn't ever amount to anything else. If you've done your research, you know for a fact that dog breeding can be so much more than just a hobby.
So to clarify, "The Problem" that I see a lot of people face is that they have an interest in dog breeding, but they never take the action. They want to get out of the 9-5 grind that they hate, or they want to stop waiting tables, or they don't know what to do with their retirement, etc. They just don't know! If you knew with certainty that there was an opportunity to make more than enough money while doing something fun, you would jump right at the opportunity. Well, there definitely is such an opportunity and I'm about to tell you a bit about how to start a dog breeding business.
Is There Money in Dog Breeding?
The simple answer the the above question is YES. Whether you're looking to become wealthy or you just want to make your passion or hobby into something that you can make money with, a dog breeding business might just be the right thing for you.
great article by Pop Sugar that talks about the 10 most expensive breeds of dogs. Just as an example, Akita puppies sell for at least $4,500, while Rottweiler puppies can go for as much as $8,000. English Bull Dogs will usually sell for around $3,000 (give or take a few). With the average dog pregnancy being about two months means that it really isn't difficult to make good money in this industry. In fact, this course showed me how to do it.
I haven't even mentioned yet that the mother will usually produce a litter of anywhere from 3 to 8 puppies (depending on the size and breed of the dog). This allows you to sell puppies by the pair and sometimes 3 at a time (I've had some families take as many as 4). I should take a moment to mention here that I don't like to separate the littler, so I encourage families to take at least two puppies at a time. This helps me make money while keeping my pups happy and the families happy.
If you're serious about breeding dogs, you could make great money by starting with a dog breed that is commonly requested (such as Yorkies). Yorkshire Terriers can be seen all over the place, and they are commonly sought out by families. They also happen to sell for up to $1,500 and the mother will usually produce a litter of about 3 - 5 pups. This could be an easy way to get a start into the business.
I highly recommend that if you're looking to profit off of dog breeding that you look into Google and Bing advertising. Google will provide you with tools to see which dog breeds are being searched for in your city. This is going to be one of the best ways to get your start into the business, because if you know that 100 people in your neighborhood are looking for English Bulldogs, you can be the supplier to that demand. You can also put out Google ads so that when they search for puppies they will find out about you and reach you first.
So... How do I Start?
I was fortunate to have come across an incredible opportunity early on. A good friend of mine, (also a dog lover) was spending a lot of his time breeding dogs. I didn't think much of it other than that he had a cool hobby. I participated and had fun learning a little bit about it. He wasn't an expert by any means, but he taught me a few tricks here and there while I helped him out.
I spent the $1 for the trial run and found that everything in the course was amazing! I continued to learn more and more, got some coaching along the way, and became part of an awesome group. I have to give credit to the course that showed me how it's done. You can check it out here if it's something you're interested in.
So if dog breeding is something that you're interested in trying out, even as a hobby, I strongly recommend it. What better way to make a living then to help families by providing them with man's best friend? What better companionship could you have than a dog who will love you and be with you to the bitter end (don't tell my wife I said that)?
I wish my readers all the very best in your dog breeding ventures! Feel free to check out the course that I took if you're really looking into starting a dog breeding business (it's really an awesome course). Thanks again for reading and I look forward to seeing you around!
