Caring for animals while owners are away on vacation or even gone for the day, with many day kennels for puppies and dogs, is an important job that sometimes requires quite a few people doing specific tasks at any given time.
The larger your kennel, the greater the need for effective tools to facilitate communication across distances. Not only are you in charge of the safety of many dogs, but if you offer additional services, you may require even more professional staff members onsite to handle a variety of tasks. These professionals include:
- Training staff
- Veterinary or vet tech staff
- Maintenance staff
- Direct animal care staff
That is because many kennels are now offering more services throughout the day to make their businesses more attractive to customers. At the end of the day, communications between the different professionals working for you is vital and push to talk, or PTT, two-way radios make communication between all members of your team easier than ever. These are just a few ways two-way radios and push to talk services can help your kennel.
Manage Staff More Efficiently
With two-way radios it is impossible for staff members to be on your property yet out of range. This means you have fast access to communications with your entire team throughout the day.
Some of the dogs under your care, especially those with special diets or rigorous training regiments, have very specific scheduling requirements. Push to talk radios help to keep all aspects of the daily schedule on track, even when coordinating between multiple members of your team to keep that schedule intact.
Monitor Animal Safety
The safety of the animals in your care is your primary responsibility. Push to talk two-way radios allow your staff members to instantly signal emergencies and coordinate efforts and responses to emergency situations involving these animals. This includes managing notifications of appropriate emergency services providers and contacting pet owners.
Signal Staff Members about Pick Up Schedules
When pet owners arrive to pick up their pets you can send a message to your handlers about the owner’s arrival so they can prepare the pet and bring it to the owner promptly. This streamlines the checkout procedure and helps improve customer service for both the animals (who likely already know their owners are near) and the pet owners.
