We were excited to recently attend the Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo in Hershey, PA. This is a national conference for professionals in the pet boarding and daycare industry.

There was an awesome line up of education seminars, with top industry speakers sharing their expertise on all things dog. We attended sessions on communicating with canines, managing doggie playgroups and even one on CBD for pets. “Heroes for Healthy Pets” ran a PACCC certification program developed to help pet service professionals create facilities dedicated to being disease free – ask to see my certificate for completing this program.

The Expo also featured a two-day trade show showcasing the best products and companies in the industry, ranging from puppy playground equipment, aromatherapy products for pets and, my favorite, doggie splash pads.

Overall it was a great learning and networking experience and we came home with lots of new ideas and information. Hershey is also home to “Chocolate World” so it was a win-win all round!
