Ready to take your training hobby to the next level? Nervous about how to start, what paperwork to tackle, which measures to put in place to protect yourself? This half-day workshop with the dog*tec consultants will get you all set. Leave with a personalized, step-by-step start-up checklist, and all of the information, detailed instructions, and understanding you need to make it happen. We’ll take the mystery and anxiety out of business licenses, FBNs and DBAs, LLCs, EINs, insurance, contracts, accounting, transition plans, and just generally how to get going. If this list makes your eyes cross or your stomach heave, it won’t by the time you leave this workshop. You’ll be ready—and raring—to go.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the necessary steps for setting up a legitimate, legal dog training business.
  • Develop a step-by-step action plan for completing their start up process.
  • Develop a template for creating a transition plan from hobbyist to business owner.
