At DogNostics we recognize that as a business owner to expand and grow your business you need to develop new skills and knowledge and recruit, train and manage high quality employees.  This we recognize is much easier said than done! So to meet the needs of your business we have created a very comprehensive Certified Pet Care Technician Program. This program incorporates all the necessary skills one of your employees or contractors need to help you perform safe and professional services.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor most animal care workers learn their trade through on-the-job training with no formal education in pet care or academic study.  

Investing in your business and your employee education is a wise decision. Employing "Certified Pet Care Professionals" will make your company stand out as a more attractive service provider to the discerning pet owner. 

Choose an affordable program that will help expand your knowledge, train and develop your employees and allow you to expand your service offerings, strengthen your client loyalty and generate more income.
