Pet boarding professionals unite! Christopher Tilson, president of PetBookings.com, will be attending and presenting at the Region 9 meeting hosted by Kenl Inn, a gathering to discuss current trends, share information, and glean new knowledge for running a successful pet care business. The three-day gathering will be held in Lincoln, Ne. on May 6-8 for pet care professionals interested in spending time with other kennel owners, sharing important industry information, and gleaning new knowledge of running the unique business of pet boarding.
Christopher Tilson will be presenting the benefits PetBookings.com provides to kennels in the pet boarding industry. The technology PetBookings.com holds equips kennels with tools that are changing the way they interact with pet owners giving them a more efficient and convenient customer experience. Their new enterprise class solution is the first and only booking engine leading the professional pet care industry into the future by transforming online presence with instant confirmation, and fully integrated social media enabled websites.
While many kennels have trouble managing waitlists, PetBookings.com helps get the best reservation (long duration) during the busy seasons with the option to use minimum stay requirements. Cash flow and late cancellations are also a big problem in the pet boarding industry, however PetBookings.com solves this by taking online deposits. And almost every kennel offers upsells and extras for pets during their stay, but when a pet owner makes a reservation over the phone they don’t see the full list complete with a description and price in front of them for their convenience.
“When pet owners see extras like ‘extra play time,’ ‘bedtime Kong treat,’ or ‘tummy rubs’ right in front of them, they have the option of looking through and choosing the best care for their pet on their own time,” says Tilson. “Taking a deposit online gives facilities cash, and they have more control over their reservations – and more impressive, they see that bottom line climb!”
The regional gathering will begin Monday, May 6 with a welcome get together and tour of a local boarding facility. Tuesday and Wednesday will be at the Kenl Inn for some friends, fun and education to boot. Tentative topics of discussion include work compensation, I.B.P.S.A. information sharing, OSHA, succession planning, etc. There will also be a local law enforcement agency who will be on-hand to give a demonstration of their working dogs. Last but not least, lunch will be provided with a Tuesday fish fry to end the gathering on a bang.
