Sometimes the best way to train and consult is in person. We offer a two day on-site consulting package. 

LOOKING FOR A SPACE If you have not found a space for your daycare/dog wash, we can look at potential locations and discuss the positives and negatives of each. 

READY TO LAUNCH If you are just about to open, we can assist with staff training and a grand opening event.  The opportunities are endless.  Basically, we are yours for 2 days! 

Prior to the visit we will have up to 3 hours of phone conversations and discuss everything listed in the basic package.  After the visit we will be available for another 3 hours of consulting. 

Airfare up to $450/person is included in the price.


These packages are designed to be a starting point, we can custom design a package to fit the needs of your unique situation.  With either package, all fees are due prior to the initial consultation and packages are non-refundable.  Like all consultants, we can’t promise success, but we will do our very best to set you up to succeed!  We don’t offer consulting services for locations within a 200 mile radius of Minneapolis, MN and a non-disclosure agreement (for both parties) a will be signed by both parties prior to any consulting services.
