Dog and Bone Veterinarian’s Concession Program
Veterinarian wondering how to further benefit your clients ?
The Dog and Bone Veterinarian Concession program has been designed with pet healthcare professionals in mind. As a caring, forward thinking Veterinary professional, you may have considered what you can add. Dog grooming may well have been in your thoughts. Its an ideal complimentary service for small animal practices.If it is thought of setting up, the time to do the marketing, recruiting staff, training etc that has put you off, here’s where Dog and Bone Grooming can help.
Over the years we have probably encountered most of the common problems associated with running a Dog Grooming business, and some more besides. This is why we have developed this service. We have experience of running both static salon and mobile salon Dog grooming services. This is an ideal complimentary add on for your business, where we can take a lot of the stress and headache involved away from you.
Why Choose a Dog and Bone Veterinarian’s Concession Program?
This will be as much about us choosing you. Don’t let that put you off, its not meant to sound conceited. We are looking to work with Veterinary practices with a good reputation, as ours is very important to us. Unlike running a franchise, our concession program operates on a fixed fee basis. We want to be a group of small businesses operating under a recognised brand, with everyone working hard to enjoy the benefits.
Dog and Bone is a little different. We have been working in a way a lot of dog groomers are now beginning to adopt for the last 15 years. Both our salons and our mobile salons have been operating on a one dog groomer to one dog basis since our inception. This has proved of benefit in the current climate, and also saw us weather the economic downturn in 2008. Our methodology transferred well into the training environment with one instructor to one student ratio ensuring the quality of the training. Yes this means fewer people through the door, but high standards going out.
At the Helm of the business is our founder and General Dogsbody Chris. He has been helping other groomers with their businesses behind the scene for years. He is passionate about Dog Grooming, seeing others succeed through hard work and helping them build their success. His experiences over the last 15 years in dog grooming and the skills he learnt in marketing business development and management prior to that, have enabled the growth of the Dog and Bone brand.
This concept has been put together by a Dog Groomer who happens to know something about business. Not a businessman who happens to know something about dog grooming. The model we use has run successfully for a number of years, and will assist you in maintaining a quality add on service. Dogs are not, at the end of a day a commodity. They are a living sentinel being.
What do you get for your investment?
This will require some of your time. Not as much as if you were starting from scratch. We will help establish your Dog Grooming add on.Success will depend as much on your input and effort as it does on ours.
