Virtual Summit Recorded Webinar

(One of 25 webinars that were featured in PPG's August Virtual Pet Care Summit)

Presented by Louise Stapleton-Frappell


Working in the pet care industry involves knowing much more than how to care for a pet. Clients expect you to know about a pet’s health needs, vaccination schedules and nutritional care. They also expect you to have a good knowledge of the pet care tools, equipment, supplies and toys available in today’s marketplace as well as knowledge of basic canine (or feline) communication so that you are able to recognize a pet’s emotional state.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand canine communication.
  • Learn how to identify both appropriate and non-appropriate equipment - From collars and leashes to harnesses and muzzles.
  • Learn about appropriate toys and how to use them both safely and effectively - From giggling and chuckling balls to interactive puzzle toys.
  • Understand the diversity of pet ‘management’ tools that are available - Including crates, gates and indoor toilets!
  • Learn about odor management and clean up supplies.
