Client Snapshots

  • Because of dogtec’s consulting I was able to turn my dog training hobby into a profitable business.”
    Nancy Dougan, A Dog For All Seasons
  • dogtec’s consultants are friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. We started from scratch, knowing only that we loved dogs and wanted to run a boarding kennel. dogtec started us off on the right foot, put our business one step ahead of the competition, and helped us avoid the pitfalls of the dog business world.”
    Nicole Gonzalez, The Country Life Kennels
  • I never thought my idea for a new business could become a reality. Veronica helped me hone my idea into a concept both profitable and fun. She provided critical insight, support, and marketing expertise. She played such a large role my success I’ve come to think of her as the unofficial business partner.”
    Ariana Kincaid, Operation Socialization
  • dogtec gave me excellent guidance on how to set up my business, and the confidence to charge what I’m worth and effectively market myself. Everything I needed to do to be successful was explained clearly and the advice covered the big picture right down to small details like what to say during an initial phone inquiry to help make the sale.”
