Have more time, more money, greater confidence and fun in your pet business.
Running your business can be a lonely and often thankless task.
“Am I doing it right? Do I have enough knowledge? Enough experience? Enough income?”
There is so much self doubt, but don’t worry PPN offers something very unique; a safe and confidential platform to join your ‘cheerleaders’ without feeling you are being judged or belittled.
Hi I’m Helen and I help ambitious, hardworking pet professionals get more profit and prestige in their business.
With a background in counselling, animal behaviour, mentoring and business coaching – I combined my skills and my love of working with people and animals and created a very special community.
In 2017, I was bullied and at the point of burnout and then my life changed when I started a Facebook group to seek refuge from my life as a pet care entrepreneur.
This refuge, turned into something incredibly powerful and I craved the opportunity to help other pet entrepreneurs find the same joy in their careers. Where I was once lonely and isolated I now was receiving dozens of messages filling my inbox. I was surprised by how suddenly a community of pet care entrepreneurs came together to share their experience, strength, and hope.
As the community expanded, I was fuelled with this new found passion and wanted much more than just a Facebook Group and launched an official organisation, one which would not only improve standards in the industry as a whole, but a place you could receive additional accountability.
The Pet Professional Network was born!
PPN is the first business support organisation and membership for pet professionals who do not use any form of aversive methodology (pain or intimidation) to train, walk or care for any pet. We apply this philosophy to people, too; employing a strict anti-bullying policy to protect our members, which fosters a true sense of belonging in a safe and confidential environment.
Whether you are newly self employed, thinking about starting up or have many years of experience our community offers you a safe place to ask advice in a safe group coaching environment.
We are proud to work in collaboration with modern, world class training and behavioural institutes and have a strong team of Affiliate Members made up of the most respected dog trainers, pet professionals and business coaches.
Our private confidential Facebook group is really special – our dedicated team of admin ensure things run smoothly and we have weekly themes, regular Facebook Lives and monthly challenges making us one of the most engaging member’s Facebook groups
As a member you will receive additional benefits including a full listing on our recommended directory. A great resource for pet owners and pet professionals looking to connect and support each other.

Raising the standards to help support more pet owners
Being part of our community means you give the confidence that you are providing your clients ethical, kind and effective services to help move them forward with a strong emphasis on the importance of long term support. Using our logo gives you a stamp of approval in which is sadly still a very much unregulated industry.
Our motto is ‘together we are stronger’ and we are a people focused organisation.
