I am so excited and proud to announce that Dogs Rock! Vermont is now a full professional member of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG).
What does that mean?
According to the PPG’ website, “The Pet Professional Guild (PPG) was founded based on a commitment to provide educational resources to pet care providers and the public coupled with an emphasis on building collaboration among force-free pet trainers and professional pet care providers and advocates for mutually agreed guiding principles for the pet care industry. PPG partners, members and affiliates focus on each pet’s physical, mental, environmental and nutritional well-being adhering to a holistic approach to the care and training of family pets.”
Why is this important to you and your dog?
According to the guild’s mission statement, “Effective training procedures lay the foundation for an animal’s healthy socialization, capacity for learning and will help prevent behavior problems. Since a wide variety of equipment and tools are commonly used when training pets and in their daily activities, the pet-owning public needs to be aware of the potential problems and dangers some equipment may pose.”
Why do I care so much?
The application process included having to demonstrate my knowledge and skill level, along with my training background and philosophies, to their board of directors and selection committee. Being a member of such a forward-thinking, knowledgeable organization means that I now have unlimited access to thousands of educational resources. I will be able to provide the best, most up-to-date and humane services I can to my clients. This is also an exciting opportunity for me to expand my educational opportunities to a national level with access to webinars from top trainers across the country.
Thank you to my clients and on going supporters for continuing to push me to become the best I can be! The learning will never stop- that’s a promise I can guarantee!
