Hey Profiteers! Welcome to Pawsitive Profit! Kara Brothers goes off the Carob track in this episode, sharing crucial insights for aspiring dog treat business owners. She taps into her experience and the wisdom of her dog treat Baker's Facebook group to answer the burning question: What do I need to know before starting a dog treat business? State Regulations: Research and contact your local agriculture department or Department of Agriculture (DOA). State laws vary, and getting direct advice is crucial. Kara emphasizes the importance of finding your state's specific requirements. Local State and City Compliance: Each state has unique regulations. Check with your local state and city about the specific requirements for selling dog treats. Some states even require forming an LLC and obtaining an EIN before registering with the DOA. Guaranteed Analysis (GA) Testing: Treats must undergo lab testing for guaranteed analysis. Kara suggests using volunteer dogs for taste testing before sending samples for lab testing. Some states have additional requirements for product labeling. Personal Research and Legwork: Don't rely solely on classes or courses. Kara emphasizes making calls, doing online research, and putting in the legwork to understand legal requirements and regulations in your specific state. Out-of-State Selling: To sell out of state, you must be registered in each state you plan to sell to. Kara warns about potential fines and legal consequences for not complying with out-of-state selling regulations, especially on platforms like Etsy. Setup Costs: Keep it simple at the beginning. Don't overspend on tools and recipes. Build a base with a straightforward recipe before expanding. Kara acknowledges that the dog treat business is not cheap, but passion and commitment make it rewarding. Time Costs: Running a dog treat business involves multiple tasks. Kara advises aspiring entrepreneurs to be organized and acknowledges the challenge of managing everything alone. Flexibility in setting your own schedule can be a significant advantage when working from home. This episode serves as a valuable guide for dog treat enthusiasts, offering practical advice and insights from those who've navigated the challenging yet rewarding path of starting a dog treat business.
