Staff Training

Owners are often relieved when their dog(s) pass the temperament screening test and are allowed to participate at a doggy daycare. But, the question that most owners do not ask the daycare is whether or not their staff is trained to handle a large group play structure. At Bark City, our staff is trained through "The Dog Gurus" program. Today, I would like to share with you a bit of their promotional material!

This is the staff training program that we make all of our staff study. You could say they are enrolled at Bark City University...

These are the two founders of "The Dog Gurus" and their credentials:

Robin Bennett is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer who founded one of the largest dog training companies in Virginia. Her first book, All About Dog Daycare is the number one reference on opening a dog daycare.

 Susan Briggs owned a large pet care center in Houston, TX for 12 years and was an early pioneer of dog daycare services. She began teaching other pet professionals to speak dog and understand dog play at her Academy in 2005.

 Both Susan and Robin are authors, consultants and experts on dogs! They have been “reading dogs,” teaching families how to train dogs, and working in the pet care industry helping others keep dogs safe for over 20 years. Co-authors of Off-Leash Dog Play… A Complete Guide to Safety and Fun, and an extensive staff training program called, Knowing Dogs.

Remember when choosing a doggy daycare, always ask if the staff is trained. For more information on choosing a doggy daycare, visit this past post!
