Join Niki Tudge and Kate LaSala for this 90-minute webinar on how to take your Pet Training Services Virtual, now and long-term!

Everyone seems to be doing it now but going virtual is not new to some pet training professionals. In this webinar we will be benefiting from Kate LaSala’s experience and knowledge having offered virtual consultations for her clients, prior to the Pandemic.

Yes, that’s right, you too can offer full training services, including group classes.  Now more than ever, these services are providing a crucial lifeline to pet trainers and their clients. Learn how to help and support your clients from the comfort and safety of your own home.

In this presentation we will discuss

  1. Can you just move current services virtually or do they need to be rebranded and redesigned?
  2.  How are remote sessions different than in-person sessions? What challenges do you face?
  3. How should you price your virtual services?
  4. What technology is required and at what cost to your business?
  5. How do you provide post session support and keep clients in the loop and motivated?
