Creating the Perfect Partnership with Daycare and Training

Far too often dog trainers and dog daycare attendants don't see eye to eye on things. Dog trainers often think daycare is a crazy free for all without enough boundaries, and dog daycare staff feel like they don't get respect from the trainers. There is hope! This seminar will teach you how to create a partnership that forges teamwork into the daycare and training staff so that everyone wins! You get better managed groups, you get more crossover of services between daycare and training which results in more revenue for you; and you become indispensable to your clients!
