If you’ve already grown beyond a one-trainer band, or have reached the point where you just can’t do it all yourself anymore, you’ll want to take advantage of this web seminar. From finding and hiring the right people to training and reviews, Veronica Boutelle of dog*tec shares practical, hands-on tips for building a productive team culture for your business. She’ll discuss how to know when it’s time to hire, how to find the right people for the job, the hiring process itself, and whether you should bring on independent contractors or employees.

Once you’ve got help, you want to get the most from your growing business. So Veronica looks at strategies for creating a positive staff culture (or fixing one that’s gotten off on the wrong foot), including staff training do’s and don’ts, reviews that actually work, and ways to reduce chaos-inducing turnover. Whether you’re ready for some help, or would like to get more from the help you already have, don’t miss this web seminar.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the process for finding and hiring strong employees
  • Understand the difference between independent contractors and employees, and the legal and tax implications of each
  • Understand the importance of, and techniques behind, effective staff training and review processes for building a strong, positive staff culture


About The Presenter



Veronica is the founder of dog*tec, the dog pro industry’s leading business consultancy, through which she has been helping dog trainers help dogs since 2003. She is the author of How to Run a Dog Business: Putting Your Career Where Your Heart Is and the co-author of Minding Your Dog Business: A Practical Guide to Business Success for Dog Professionals, and writes on business topics for many dog training industry journals. Veronica is a sought-after speaker at conferences and dog training schools across the country and internationally. She has recently spoken to positive reinforcement trainers at conferences and seminars in countries as diverse as Chile, Australia, Spain, New Zealand, and the UK.

As former Director of Behavior & Training at the San Francisco SPCA, and as a dog training business owner before that, Veronica understands what it means to be a dog trainer first hand—the daily worries about everything from client compliance to financial security, the unique challenges of a “flexible” schedule that requires evenings and weekends, and the struggle to balance clients and training with the minutiae of running a business—and to balance all of that with a rich non-work life. Her background as a trainer, her business expertise, and her work as an educator put Veronica in a unique position to help professional dog trainers learn to become as skilled in business as they are as trainers—and that means more dogs’ lives touched by positive training.
