Oct 16, 2015 1:30pm ‐ Oct 16, 2015 4:45pm

Standard: $20.00


Are you interested in teaching puppy classes, but lacking a training facility in which to hold them? Do you want low overhead and a fantastic relationship that can bring a continuous stream of clients? Teaching group classes in a veterinary hospital can be a win-win solution! Learn how to get started with what clinics to approach, how to have that first conversation, and how to work out the logistics. Prepare for your first class by getting students interested and enrolled, ensuring cleanliness and safety, setting up your space, and running a successful course. Finally, follow through with ways to strengthen and grow your relationship with your veterinary partner, bringing more clients to your business, and improving the lives of their patients!

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze hospital spaces for suitability and potential challenges.
  • Create a checklist to prepare for the first conversation – being “interviewed” by the veterinary hospital, and vice versa.
  • Develop a plan for marketing, enrolling and running their first class within a veterinary setting.
