Working With Our Veterinary Community
As professional dog trainers, it is imperative for us to know and build relationships with our veterinary colleagues. Our Houston dog trainer wants our veterinary community to know that we are fighting the same good fight together — keeping dogs healthy and living long, happy lives with their families.
When we work with our veterinary community, it’s not just about dropping off our business cards and asking their technicians and receptionists to refer us. We want our vets to know who we actually are and what we do. Rather than be the nameless dog trainer lost among the list of hundreds of other nameless dog trainers, we can to be the trainer that your vet trusts and understands what kind of training we offer to our clients.
We offer complimentary lunch-and-learns for vets, daycares, groomers, rescues, and other dog-related businesses and organizations that want to learn more about us and our techniques. For our vets specifically, we also offer a specialized presentation that is accredited and can offer an hour of continuing education that many vets and technicians are required to have. Through this, the vets and their staff learn about behavioral health, anxiety, food and diet, and safety measures that they can apply to their own practice when handling their clients and their dogs. They also learn about our company, our trainer, and the methods and philosophy behind our successful training programs.
Vets are one of the most important people in a dog’s life. They maintain and improve a dog’s general health, and increase the longevity of the dog’s life. They are there for annual check ups and emergencies, for a puppy’s first shot and for a senior’s peaceful farewell. Vets are their to better a dog’s life, and as trainers, that is our goal too.
Behavioral health can be just as important as physical health, and many times, they are can be linked to each other. If a dog is not behaviorally healthy, then their general health can worsen. For example, if a dog is severely anxious or destructive, they could inflict harm on themselves by ingesting something dangerous they anxiously destroyed. An untreated, anxious dog can cause self-injury because they’re nervously biting themselves or constantly trying to break out of their crates or fenced-in yards. And if they escape, heaven forbid they get hit by a car or picked up by the wrong person.
When your vet refers us, they know who and what they are referring. When we refer vets to training clients, we know who we are referring. It is always important for us to have long-lasting relationships with our veterinary communities, for the benefit of our clients and their dogs!
