Time is money

Time is money, and many dog daycare and boarding businesses can’t afford to waste time grading paperwork or training every new hire on all of the basics necessary to get up to speed on their job. Many dog businesses are swamped right now and their owners and managers are just treading water. 

Owners and managers don’t have time to teach new hires how to clean up dog poop, urine, and vomit. They don’t have time to show new employees the various types of collars, leashes, and harnesses and how to take them off and put them on a dog. They certainly don’t have time to teach different types of dog play styles, stress warnings, dealing with latches, or kenneling techniques… let alone time to grade printed quizzes or manually keep track of each employee’s course training progress!

Work smarter, not harder. Let Dog Handler Academy bring you into the 21st century! With our online quizzes and course progress email notifications, you won’t have to grade a thing, AND you’ll be notified when your employees pass their course! Worried about employees’ progress? We’ll also email you if they HAVEN’T completed their course in 7, 14, or even 21 days after you added them to your team on your facility dashboard.

In the Dog Handler Academy monthly membership training program, your team can learn all the basics!
