By Staff

Get ready, because this May, the premier West Coast event for pet boarding and daycare professionals returns, in person, to Burbank, CA! 

After two consecutive years of being a virtual event, it’s time for the industry to come together to learn, share and shop. From forced shutdowns to full bookings, the last few years have seen a lot of change in all industries—especially the pet care industry. Many of us have learned what works and what doesn’t, and are eager to share and learn from our industry peers and experts.

Speaking of industry experts, the May event will feature more new speakers than ever before! From marketing gurus and business lawyers to veterinarians and dog behavior experts, they will all be here to share their knowledge to aid you in your business operations.

All aspects of the industry will be covered in this year’s expo. We have again designated three separate tracks of education to choose from (or mix and match!): Owner/Manager (for those making the business decisions), Staff/Continuing Education (for all employees or anyone wanting to further their education in pet care) and Financial (for anyone making financial decisions, including staffing and marketing).

The expo will kick off Monday afternoon with the four-hour program “Handler Bootcamp: Be Better for Our Canines,” which is a must-attend for just about anyone who interacts with dogs in a boarding or daycare setting. 

Seminars will continue all day Tuesday through Thursday covering a variety of topics, all specific to the boarding and daycare industry. Packages are available for the full schedule of education, or you can pick and choose which classes interest you.

There will be additional opportunities to socialize and share stories with others in the business, including the Meet & Greet on Monday night, the Round Table Luncheons on Tuesday through Thursday, and the Live Oak Bank Happy Hour on Tuesday evening.

And, don’t forget about the trade show! Wednesday and Thursday will feature an industry trade show with lots of vendors offering everything you may need for your business, including products, consulting services, builders, software, and so much more. 

So, whether your definition of success is taking a vacation every month and letting your staff handle the business, or working endless hours to open that second location, Pet Boarding & Daycare Expo West is sure to help you Discover Your Success!
