Rico Rice Mill is a company registered in the United States. It will be established in Florida. Having done a comprehensive market research, we found out that the United State pet industry has a very huge market. Here in Florida, a lot of people have pets which are mostly dogs and they need to get these dogs trained and care for.
However, there are few training centers available to meet this need. The discovery of this challenge was what prompted us to establish Dillo Dog Training Company. We have gotten a very strategic location where there is a large concentration of dog owners who are in dire need of our services. Know that having a hungry market is not enough, we aim to offer our prospective customers quality services that they cannot get anywhere else.
Our products and services include training and grooming services, sales of dog training equipment and sales of dog care materials. We discovered that many dog owners find it challenging to find a conducive place to board their dogs when they are travelling or going for vacation. We are planning to help them tackle this challenge by making conducive and comfortable boarding facilities available to them at affordable rates.
Dillo Dog Company is jointly owned by George Will and Ken Greene. Mr. Will has a degree in Business Administration. His passion for pet animals made him ventured into consulting for businesses in the pet industry.
He has been consulting for the past 15 years and has consulted for top notched pet companies, teaching them business, sales and marketing strategies to make their business grow.
On the other hand, Mr. Green is a certified dog trainer who has worked for various dog training firms for the past 20 year. Both of them have decided to leverage on their rich experience and expertise to create a formidable dog training company in Florida with a plan to later extend it to other parts United States.
Our vision is to be one of the top leading dog training companies with a positive reputation for excellent products and services all through Florida.
Our mission is to always innovate easier and convenient ways to deliver quality services to our customers so that they enjoy utmost satisfaction that cannot be found anywhere else.
In order to easily achieve our goal of becoming a top leading dog training company, it is very essential to put in a solid business structure from the inception. We will make sure we employ people who do not only have the necessary expertise and experience but also passionate about what we do. This is what our business structure will look like:
- Chief Executive Officer
- Administrative Manager
- Human Resource Manager
- Dog Trainer Supervisors
- Marketing and Sales Executives
- Security Guards
Products and Services
Dillo Dog Training Company intends to offer different variety of products services which include:
- Dog grooming

Our target market are busy professionals who have dogs but do not have the time to personally train and care for their as they wish. Our target market also includes companies that have guard dogs they want to train.
For now, we our targeting will focus only on Florida but as soon as we capture Florida’s market, we will spread our tentacles to other parts of United State where our services are highly needed.
Marketing and Sales Strategy
We intend to attract our prospective customers to our company by organizing a free dog training sessions in the areas where our target market are concentrated. The training will be excellent but very basic. It will serve as an irresistible appetizer that will leave our prospects craving for more.
During the training sessions, we will pitch our products and services to our prospects and make them see what they stand to benefit by patronizing us. Since our prospects spend a great deal of their time on social media, we intend to utilize social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to create a massive awareness of our company brand.
The total cost that is needed to start up the dog training company we are envisaging is estimated to be $150,000. This will cover everything ranging from the cost of registering the business, the cost of acquiring business facilities, the cost of marketing both online and offline. It will also cover the salaries of staff for the first three months of operation.
