PET Training Program - Products - Equipment - Tools


Everyone Wins When The Training Begins!

Investing in our Nash Academy PET Program is investing in future business with Nash Staff, Students and Graduates. We all know the power of first impressions which is why being a member of the Nash Academy PET Program works great for companies in the pet care business.

Products - Equipment - Tools

Nash Academy has changed the world of education when it comes to products, equipment, and tool knowledge with our PET Program. Companies furnish products, equipment, and tools to the Nash Pet Salon in Lexington, KY, the practical skills training site for the Nash Academy. Students are introduced to your products, equipment and tools right from the start and they develop a loyalty to your brand. In fact, many students make their biggest purchases during their training to create their ultimate bathing, grooming and styling kit.
Your Branding Continues when Our Training Ends
Many of our graduates open their own businesses or go to work in existing salons. We know our graduates who open their own salons purchase products, equipment, and tools they used in school. Graduates who go to work for salons educate the salon team about the products, equipment, and tools they used at school.

Nash is the gathering area for many types of practical skills training and your products, equipment and tools are there for our students to use!
