NAPPS Conference 2016 Recap

This past weekend, the Handlr Team flew to beautiful Orlando, Florida to experience the magic of NAPPS Conference of 2016. To say the least, we were blown away by the amount of professionalism, creativity, and entrepreneurialism displayed by every single one of the business owners we had the pleasure of meeting. We learned everything it takes to run a pet care service business. From dog training techniques, software solutions, marketing best practices, to eco-friendly poop bags! The pet care industry is vast and growing at an exponential rate, and NAPPS plays a pivotal role to providing great resources to their members. It’s a place that allows professionals in the industry to connect, exchange ideas, promote growth, and learn. This weekend encompassed all of those aspects, and more. We thank you for giving Handlr the opportunity to be there and we thank all of the guest speakers for their leadership in the industry and sharing their knowledge with us.
