Is your pet care business ready to go to the next level?
Fall in love all over again with running it by teaming up with The Dog Gurus!
A pet care business consulting and staff training company, The Dog Gurus helps pet care biz owners launch, grow, and profit.
The team does this by helping pet business owners create their own sustainable companies.
According to Robin Bennett, one of the founders of The Dog Gurus,
“Primarily, we work with boarding and daycare industries. We have some trainers, pet sitters, dog, and walkers. But we’re basically trying to raise the bar of safety for all animals in the pet industry.”
The Dog Gurus: Humble Beginnings
Although The Dog Gurus was formed about seven years ago, Robin has been working together with her co-founder, Susan Briggs, for even longer than that.
At first, both of them ran their own pet care facilities, doing doggy daycare back when it wasn’t as popular yet as it is today.
However, Susan and Robin noticed that the industry was missing tools to train staff to truly understand canine body language and what constituted good play versus inappropriate play.
In fact, they themselves needed help training their own staff.
This led to Susan creating her own little manual.
Susan eagerly shared,
“I thought there had to be something better. So, one time, at a conference, I was like, ‘Robin, we should just write a book that would help people do that.’ And that’s how we started working together.”
From this partnership came a book they called “Off-Leash Dog Play: A Complete Guide to Safety & Fun”, which they used to train their own staff members.
Fortunately, other pet care business owners were happy with all the information they presented in the book.
However, it was really the suggestion of adding a video that encouraged them to create a true training system they called “Knowing Dogs”.
“That core product has trained thousands of pet care professionals. It’s a proven product that has been phenomenal. We’ve heard from businesses that it reduces injuries and incidents and gives our staff confidence to do a great job and enjoy it.”
With the success of their book and training course, Susan and Robin began working together more and more.
Eventually, they saw that there were more advantages to merging their company, which led to the birth of The Dog Gurus.
Right now, both founders’ aim is to bring their knowledge and training to the pet parent market.
“Ultimately, for us, dogs are our passion, and we know that dogs make everybody’s life better. And we can make the life better for the dogs by teaching canine body language.”
