dog-knows-logo-2-300x240Rob Nunn served as a military clerk, a veterinary technician, dog handler & kennel manager for 13 years before leaving the armed forces and embarking on a civilian career.

After retraining as a learning support assistant Rob always wanted to reignite his passion for working with dogs – which is why after some research that he chose to start a British Franchise Association Approved (BFA) Dogknows franchise. His business will specialize in Puppy & Adult dog training, Dog Care as well as dog walking:

I’ve always wanted to work with dogs outside the army but have no business experience.  Franchising will enable me to receive training and support for this.  – Rob Nunn – Franchisee, Dogknows.

FranchisingWorks supported Rob through an intense 1:1 programme that helped him through his research, business planning and access to funding through the Government backed start up loans company scheme.

From my initial enquiry through to setting up my business plan and making financial applications and beyond. They were always at the end of an email or phone throughout the whole process.  I cannot recommend FranchisingWorks highly enough. Rob Nunn – Franchisee, Dogknows
