Enrichment Dog Daycare 10

I like to stay informed of what is trending in the animal care field through dog daycare social media groups, podcasts, webinars, courses and workshops. I like to continually educate myself and improve the business. When I attended the Dog Gurus’ Business Breakthrough workshop in Colorado Springs in 2019, I was introduced to PACCC and encouraged to get certified.


PACCC stands for the Professional Animal Care Certification Council. It's an organization dedicated to ensuring the highest standards of professionalism and expertise in the pet care industry. Essentially, they're like the gold standard for pet care professionals.


As the owner of A Walk in the Park, becoming PACCC certified was important to me. It's all about demonstrating my commitment to excellence and providing you, as pet parents, with the assurance that I am dedicated to running a professional and ethical business.
The PACCC certification is done through independent testing and to maintain high standards PACCC objectively tests knowledge and skills. You may be surprised to learn, that there are no legal certification requirements for a dog daycare business in Ohio, which means anyone, even without prior knowledge or experience in the field, can open up a dog daycare or even a grooming business. PACCC certification, on the other hand, is a way to assure pet parents that a business conducts itself professionally and with expertise.


Being a Certified Professional Animal Care Operator isn't just a title to me—it's a commitment to ongoing learning and improvement. Also, my entire team is required to participate in continuing education courses to ensure we're always up-to-date on the latest techniques and best practices
