Do You Want To Become A Professional Dog Walker

dogTEC's Dog Walking Academy Expands To The East Coast

The Dog Walking Academy, a comprehensive 4-day professional dog walking certification program taught by business consultancy dogTEC, will for the first time be offered on the East Coast this Fall.

Sixes, OR (PRWEB) June 18, 2009 -- dogTEC has added a New Hampshire location to its seminar schedule for the sought-after Dog Walking Academy, a comprehensive 4-day professional dog walking certification program aimed at anyone wanting to start a successful dog walking business and existing dog walking businesses wanting to grow. The first workshop will be November 12-15, 2009.

In the past five years, dogTEC has certified hundreds of dog walkers through workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area, meaning a very long trip for anyone on the right-hand side of the country, not to mention European, Australian, and Asian dog professionals. Adding an East Coast location makes the sought-after workshop accessible to more people.

The Dog Walking Academy covers technical subjects like canine body language, pack composition and management, trail etiquette, dog screening, how to handle and prevent aggression, First Aid certification, etc., plus gives attendees a solid overview of the small business practices and marketing necessary for long-term financial stability and success.

The program is designed by veteran trainer and walker Kim Moeller, the San Francisco SPCA's resident dog-dog socialization and rehabilitation expert, and Veronica Boutelle, the dog pro industry's leading business consultant and author of How To Run A Dog Business. The East Coast workshop will be taught by Denise Mazzola, Director of the Monadnock Canine Academy at Monadnock Humane Society in New Hampshire.

Another useful tip for dog walking jobs is to get adequate training in dog walking. Lastly, do not just look at the dog walking work as a means to make money. You must have the love and passion towards the dogs and should find the dog walking jobs interesting.
