Welcome to Global Pet Care Institute

We are searching for frustrated, overworked kennel owners who are ready to make changes and make more money! We created GPCI as a convenient and affordable way for progressive kennel owners to learn, stay informed, and network with others in the industry. We even have a comprehensive online business development/staff training program to give facility owners and veterinarians (who offer boarding) time to focus on the bottom line! Our new programs are all about providing solutions to your everyday problems.

We've designed the Global Pet Care Institute to be both powerful and affordable, with monthly membership just $147. And check out our VIP Programs!

About us

Shannon Heggem CKO, CMG, NCMG  is a pioneer in the pet boarding industry. She created this program after facing (and finding solutions for) the same daily issues in her own boarding facility for 21 years.

Shannon also shares her expertise as a boarding business consultant, helping other frustrated and overworked kennel owners rethink their own businesses and make strategic changes. She knows the "secret recipe" to boarding kennel success and has developed this program to share these valuable methods and insights.


Next classes begin in September!

We are excited to announce the launch of our new VIP Business Development & Staff Education Programs! Owners, management, and staff (even grooming staff!) are able to learn online at their own pace. Space is limited, as we only able to enroll a certain number of facilities at one time.
