Are you are a Professional Dog Walker? Are you thinking about becoming one?
As a former Professional Dog Walker and Home Boarder myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find the time and money to take time off work to attend courses. Especially at the moment, with fuel costs, your biggest business expense, continually rising along with everything else.
It can also hard working on your own and feeling like there are things that you would like to ask but don't want to bother people or wade through all the conflicting opinions on social media or Google. There are also increasing numbers of people who would like to reduce their social media use but do still want to keep in touch with fellow professionals. And if you haven't worked in business before setting up your own, it can be difficult knowing where to start or how to approach certain problems.
So this is why I decided to create something specifically for Professional Dog Walkers. Something that offered affordable and accessible learning that you can do at your own pace, access to advice from a Qualified and Accredited Dog Trainer, access to business advice, a way to connect with other like-minded professionals away from the noisy environment that social media can be and to create an association that gives clients reassurance that they are entrusting their dog to someone conscientious and reliable.
Access to 5 pre-recorded webinars about setting up and running a dog walking business, understanding body language, recognising signs of stress, preventing bites, taking care of puppies, introducing new dogs to your group, when to accept and when to refer, dog laws you need to be aware of, how to deal with common dog walking problems and much more
