“I love working with pet pros and helping them
reach their full potential in business!

They are so passionate about the work
they do and they have
such a kind and gentle spirit.”
– Coach Traci

Traci helps pet pros build a sustainable business model by teaching them how to start a dog walking club in their community.


Traci Bisson is the owner/founder of It Takes a Village Pet Care located in Barrington, NH. She is also the founder of the NH Dog Walking Club, which has over 2,000 members in its Facebook Community.

Prior to starting It Takes a Village Pet Care, Traci started her career in marketing/PR in 1994. She founded her own firm in 2000 then closed the doors in 2016 to start a professional pet care business.

In 2008, at the height of the recession, she started an online membership site for mom entrepreneurs, grew the group to 1,000 members, and sold the company in 2013.

In 2018, finding no dog walking groups in her area, Traci launched the NH Dog Walking Club as a community outreach program for her pet care business.

The Club offers organized walks/hikes, unique outings, and online educational presentations to dog lovers throughout NH, ME and MA. 

In 2019, Traci launched her Featured Expert Program and collaborated with pet professionals throughout NH to bring valuable resources and topics of interest to dog lovers.

In 2020, she launched her Charitable Partners program, creating awareness of and raising funds for three pet nonprofits in NH.

In 2021, she converted her Club to a paid membership and reached her goal of $10K with her founding member launch. Now, she teaches pet professionals around the country how to increase revenue, attract new clients, and build community by establishing a dog walking club in their area.

Traci is also a published writer who has written articles on book publishing and promotion, how to get free publicity, blogging, social networking, marketing, business planning, how to write news releases, and other topics.

Her articles have appeared in many publications, including national and local magazines, newspapers, and websites.

In addition, Traci has been interviewed on several expert subjects for TV, radio, print, and social media, most recently on sustainability and community for Pet Sitter’s World magazine.
