Create Safer Work Places
Train yourself and your staff in “pet-friendly” low-stress handling techniques, and you will be rewarded with fewer bites and scratches, relaxed and compliant pets, and clients who love your competence and care—and keep coming back.
Low-stress handling helps you save time by making procedures more efficient, and limits liability by making staff and clients safer.
Practicing low-stress handling skills will show clients and employers that you are knowledgeable in pet behavior, are up-to-date on new trends and skills, and are able to show compassion for your patients. All of these skills will make you an immediate asset to the practice as you further develop other technical skills.
Cultivate Relationships with Clients and Patients
“Pet-friendly” handling shows clients you care about a patient’s health and their well-being. By creating a positive experience for pets and their owners, you’ll have happy clients who keep coming back.
