As Acme Canine starts its 11th year of business we thought we’d share our plans and goals for the year. As always the dogs in our care are our number one concern and what we base our goals on.
Please knock. We work with all personalities and temperaments of dogs. For their safety–and our clients–we have adapted a locked door policy at our front door. By doing so we can prevent dogs who shouldn’t meet each other from having the opportunity to do so.
Product testing. The Pet Industry is booming and coming out with a variety of new ideas and products. It is difficult for dog owners to know what works or is best for their dogs. Acme Canine has been testing new products since its inception and this year will be no different. Every product tested is used in daily life at Acme for a minimum of 2 months prior to providing our review. Each product is tested by the dogs in our care as well as by the staff. Opinions are gathered and the results are posted on Spike’s Blog as well as Pupdate on Products in this e-newsletter. Many are so exceptional they end up being sold in our Woofie Shop.
Continuing Education. Education is at the core of Acme Canine. We share our canine knowledge with clients, trainers and others in the canine business. Many of the handouts and booklets we have created are now available on-line. In addition, our staff continues their education of canine behavior and care through hands-on demonstrations, lectures and video classes. This year we are hoping to receive accreditation by the IBPSA.
Giving Back. Giving back to the community is part of Acme Canine Resource Center’s purpose. Raising funds as well as collecting items is just one of many charitable activities in which Acme participates. Acme volunteers Reading Dogs to schools and libraries, sponsors an Olentangy Little League team, and gives demo dog presentations to local schools and organizations. Each year we select a non-profit charitable dog organization to bring attention to in the central Ohio area. This year we are assisting FFBF.
Experience, integrity and knowledge have solidified this business model. One we will continue to use for years to come.
