End of Life Is Part of Life

As much as we don’t want to think about losing our pets and our clients, end of life is an important and often undiscussed part of the pet profession. Often clients or coworkers look to us for answers, information, and support in trying and difficult times. Having a solid background in how to deal with various situations related to death and dying, can help those who rely on us. Good Dog is proud and honored to partner with eldercare and aftercare expert, Jodi Clock, to bring you a very important and unique online training course in dealing with end-of-life issues.

Compassion Fatigue & Grief Counseling Training

End-of-life issues revolving around our pets and our clients can be emotionally taxing and stressful. If we as pet professionals don’t learn how to deal with our own stresses and grief, it can negatively impact our life and our business. In her online training videos, Jodi walks us through the steps in how to handle our own emotions, so we can be there to support our clients and friends.

What Happens When A Pet Dies

Would you know what to do if a pet in your care died? How about it’s owner? If a client asked you on advice about euthanasia or cremation, would you be able to answer with helpful, factual information? Even though these subjects make many of us uncomfortable, it can provide a tremendous service, as well as support, to our clients during a very difficult time in their life. Dealing with the loss of a pet is every bit as traumatic as losing a human family member. Jodi walks you through these sensitive topics in her online training course.

Celebrating The Life Of A Pet

After a pet dies, its important for the owners and other animals in the house to grieve. Missing steps in the grieving process, even for other animals, can cause long term behavioral and health issues. In these important videos, Jodi discusses what to do in the minutes after death, options for cremation or burial, and how to memorialize a cherished pet after they’re gone. Although difficult subject matter for some, this is critical information for anyone that has ever dealt with or will deal with the loss of a pet. By knowing answers to questions and offering suggestions and resources, you can help ease a client’s mind during this difficult phase of pet ownership.
