How SCORE Helped

The Learning Dog Training & Enrichment Center offers a large variety of classes using non-aversive training methods. From puppy to teenager to adult to senior, there are classes to suit your needs. Both Katie and Jenny are Certified Professional Dog Trainers (CPDT-KA) and believe in non-aversive training methods so choke collars, prong (pinch) collars or shock (e-collars) collars are never used. We believe you never have to hurt a dog to train them.


The Learning Dog Training & Enrichment Center also offers one day training classes, seminars, playdates, cat behavior, bite prevention seminars at vet offices,  and fun pet events. And stop in to check out our retail area offering hard-to-find training tools and unique pet products.  Online retail area coming soon!

Katie and Jenny first met with SCORE in June 2012. They were looking for guidance in increasing sales for this new entity over several visits we discussed concepts especially calls to former clients telling them about new classes.

We also spent time reviewing certain expenses that seemed to be high compared to the sales volume the company was doing. The overall goal was for each partner to get $25000 per year. We suggested instead of paying trainers 30%, that they take that amount when they do the training. Also promoting their business through workshops etc. sales are up 78% in 2013 over 2011. 14% in 2013 over 2012. Printing, office supplies and payroll are now better managed.

2014 sales are up 16% for the first 4 months.

These 2 young ladies have done an excellent job in managing the business and take to heart advice and suggestions given to them!

How SCORE Helped

Our consulting firm wanted to open its own Early Childhood Center.  With over 25 years combined experience, we had a solid business plan, budget, and the space we wanted to start with.  We were in need of capital.  We had poor-fair credit, and one partner is not a US citizen.  No bank would help us.  Our mentor, Richard, assisted with obtaining a micro-loan from Pasco EDC, negotiations on the lease, budget revisions, and general financing information.  He is a wealth of knowledge for small businesses.  He is still involved with this project.  We are marketing the new business, and Richard has helped us get the most for our marketing budget.  Richard has been so instrumental throughout this process.

          My beauty supply business has grown significantly in the short time we’ve been in 
business and I’m considering hiring an accountant. How do I find the right one?

          There are many responsibilities that come with being a small business owner, and everyone is critical to maintaining profitability and promoting growth. You can’t risk letting a deadline slip or overlook an administrative requirement, yet there are only so many hours in the
day to get things done.
