“Pet Tech® is a vital part of my dog training business. It has been a vehicle which has increased my access to pet shelters and Humane Societies in my area. The first aid program has become part of the offered training to the staff of more than one of these shelters as a fund raiser, even being included in the curricula for a dog trainers academy. I think all dog trainers should have first aid training to provide for their students.”
 – Lisa Compton, Lisa’s Dog Training

Pet Tech® Opportunity

This is a business opportunity and you will become a Pet Tech® member. What that means is you will have access to an expanded profile page and you can set up your classes wherever and whenever you want. Within a few guidelines, you set the pricing for your classes and no portion of that class fee is paid back to Pet Tech® Corporate. There is no limit to how many times a year you can teach and we don’t issue territories.

As a licensee you are required to teach the Pet Tech® standards and guidelines we train and you will be authorized to utilize the program when teaching your classes. We keep our rules to a minimum in order to allow you to get out and teach and at the same time making sure our program is consistently taught worldwide to current standards. In order to maintain the Pet Tech® standardization, each student must receive a PetSaver™ Packet. You pay a yearly Licensee Membership fee of $175 and teach at least two classes a year with a minimum of 6 students. We know you will probably teach more but we keep that requirement low as some Instructors are just training staff.

Class Size is limited to 12 students per Instructor. Materials for a class size of twelve (students working in groups of 3) is as follows: Power Point Presentation, 4 stuffed dogs, 4 Bleeding & Muzzling Kits (1 muzzle, 1 rolled gauze, 3-4 x4 gauze pads, 1 triangular bandage and 
1 Tourni-stik), 12 PetSaver™ Student Packets. Estimated start up costs $500-$1000.
