Session Title: Growing Collaborative Care and Your Business
Session Type: Lecture (1 Hour)

It is an exciting time to be a dog trainer as the concept of collaborative care grows to reach pet owners, veterinarians, vet staff, and others involved in caring for our pets. It is also a perfect time to position ourselves as a resource. By offering training services to teach cooperative care, we can benefit everyone involved. Veterinarians and staff benefit from safer and more efficient exams and procedures, clients learn new approaches to at-home care, and dogs experience the power of choice and less emotional and physical stress. And, as trainers, we benefit from opportunities to grow our businesses while broadening the reach and impact of collaborative care.

This session will look at strategies to incorporate collaborative care services into your training business, and how to get clients’ buy-in and engagement. It will also address the elephant in the room – how to get over the discomfort and connect with vets and others to build a powerful referral network based on collaboration. In short, it will explore how to create a winning strategy that benefits everyone involved.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore ideas for incorporating collaborative care into your training services.
  • Identify strategies to market your services to pet owners to develop their understanding and buy-in.
  • Utilize your focus on collaborative care to establish referral relationships with veterinarians and others.
