Veronica Boutelle MA Ed CTC is the co-founder of dogbiz, through which she and her team have been helping +R dog trainers pursue successful careers since 2003.
She is the author of several books, including How to Run a Dog Business: Putting Your Career Where Your Heart Is and Minding Your Dog Business: A Practical Guide to Business Success for Dog Professionals. She also writes regular business columns for multiple industry journals, including the Pet Professional Guild’s BARKS magazine and the APDT Australia’s Click!
A sought-after international conference and seminar speaker, she loves the opportunity to help +R dog trainers around the world build their business skills and make a solid living helping more dogs. She is a U.S. Clicker Expo faculty member, created the Karen Pryor Academy business curriculum, and is a regular speaker at seminars and association conferences around the world, including multiple APDT Australia conferences and PPG summits in the U.S.
Her background as a trainer, business expertise, and work as an educator place her in a unique position to help professional trainers learn to become as skilled in business as they are with dogs—and that means more dogs’ lives touched by positive training.
To help dog trainers enjoy thriving businesses, her company dogbiz offers one-on-one business, career, and marketing consulting, an array of online business courses through their dogbiz University program, and a suite of dog business products and services designed to make running a successful dog training business easier.
