Benefit From Individually Tailored Training Programmes
Before you take the reins of your new pet franchise business, you’ll take part in 10 full working days worth of training. This will include four days in the classroom where you’ll come to understand how to operate and market your enterprise. As well as three days in practical scenarios during which you’ll learn expert dog handling techniques. And a further three days completing real services with a seasoned expert at your side. But this won’t be the end of your training. As you take on bookings and become more experienced, you’ll become skilled enough to pass an ABTC accredited dog-training course. After which you’ll be a fully qualified professional.
From a marketing standpoint, you’ll be added onto the Dogknows website and be the recipient of a three-month targeted campaign on prominent online advertising platforms. The brand will also set you up on social media and provide you with templates for local advertising and press releases.
