Get ready to “go all in” at this year’s Pet Boarding & Daycare Expo West! With the exciting new location of the Horseshoe Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, right on the Las Vegas strip, this is one industry event not to miss.

An alluring line-up of industry experts, including some brand new faces, will come together to share their expertise and words of wisdom on every aspect of running or working in a pet care business. You’ll hear from veterinarians, dog trainers, builders, marketing experts, financial advisors, lawyers, facility owners and more!

With the continued challenges of hiring and retaining a great staff being felt in all industries, the pet care industry is certainly no exception. That’s why this year’s education has more seminars than ever that focus on hiring, training and managing staff.

Speaking of staff—don’t forget to sign them up, too! Education is also offered for those in entry-level pet care positions with topics like dog behavior, customer service and cleaning being covered.

In addition to the unparalleled education, the two-day trade will be making its way to Vegas as well! Come ready to shop with all your favorite vendors—from cage companies to cleaning supplies—everything you need for your pet care business will all be in one place.

The expo will kick off Monday afternoon with the four-hour program “Professional Pet Boarding Infectious Disease Management Certification,” which is certificate course designed for all levels of staff, specifically focusing on recognizing, managing and preventing infectious diseases commonly seen in a boarding or daycare setting.

After the Monday daytime program, be sure to stick around for the Keynote address, given by none other than the “Pet Biz Wiz” himself, Dominic Hodgson. Traveling all the way from the UK to educate and delight the pet care people of the U.S., Dom will be sure to inspire and excite the audience about what the rest of the expo has to offer with his captivating and entertaining address, “Recession Proof Your Business with The Premium and Proud Pet Care Prescription.”

Immediately following the Keynote address will be a meet & greet, hosted by PET|VET Sales & Advisory, which will give you an opportunity to unwind, socialize and get ready for the information-packed days ahead. Other opportunities to socialize and share stories with others in the business include the Round Table Luncheons on Tuesday through Thursday (registration required).

If you’ve been on the fence about furthering your education in the pet boarding and daycare industry, this is the year to “go all in” and invest in improving your business and get it running to its full potential!
