5 Reasons to use Free Online Dog Training Software
Last Updated: June 16, 2020
Owning a pet training business is hard work. When you're not busy training your clients' pets, you're busy sending emails, filing paperwork, you know the drill. If you're still keeping your entire business offline, it might be time to transition to an online training program. While it might seem like a daunting task to move your offline business to online, it's really not that as difficult as you think. We'll be discussing the offline to online transition process in a future blog post. For now, let's talk online dog training software.
DoggieDashboard is 100% for small trainers that have less than 10 clients. If you're a new trainer just getting started, you can sign up for a free account and use it entirely free. Once your business grows past 10 clients, it's only $25 a month, no contracts or commitments. Most other apps out there will charge you around $100/month, since you're paying for features you'll never use. DoggieDashboard's low price helps small businesses become successful businesses.
Below are five (of the many) reason why using online pet training software will help make your business run smoother.
1. Get Rid of Spreadsheet Clutter
DoggieDashboard makes it easy to organize all your training needs. You can store all your clients and pets in the database and easily scroll through their records to see if anyone needs vaccines, if anyone is missing a document, or if anyone has an aggression note that you need to be aware or.
2. Quickly Communicate with Clients
With DoggieDashboard, you can simply scroll through your client list, click the 'Send Email' button, and you're instantly able to send them an email. This will save you hours of time over the course of month, hours of time that you can spend designing new courses, doing marketing, or anything else that tickles your fancy.
3. Securely Store Dog Training Documents
With DoggieDashboard, uploading client and pet documents is a breeze. You simply visit the client or pet's profile and upload the document with the click of a button. The document is securely stored in the cloud and directly tied to the client or pet's profile, so that you don't need to worry about managing an ever-growing Google Docs folder.
4. Forecast Earnings and Class Occupancy
DoggieDashboard makes it simple to visualize your monthly class schedule. The training calendar gives you a brief overview of each class, and when you click on the class itself, a pop-up appears with the course's information, including occupancy and attendance notes. You can even use the calendar to calculate your future earnings. If you see that 5 of 10 pets are currently attending your Friday night class, you can easily figure out how much you're earning from said class.
5. Monitor Week to Week Pet Improvements
DoggieDashboard's pet training software makes it super easy to take class-specific notes for each pet. You can note the pet's attendance, as well as anything specific about that certain class. For the next class, you can quickly click back on the last class to see what you worked on in that class and prepare yourself for the next class.
If you're a dog trainer looking to move towards using online software, think about giving DoggieDashboard a try. As I said at the start of this blog post, the software is 100% free for small trainers. Even if you're a large dog trainer, you can still use it with your 10 most active clients and get a feel for it. If you like what you're seeing, moving to DoggieDashboard Premium costs $25 a month and gives you access to unlimited pet and client storage, as well as a myriad of other features.
