If you are researching this becoming a dog trainer, then you might be considering a career change. Maybe you’re stuck behind a desk? Maybe you long for something you are more passionate about? Maybe you fear not making enough money? Maybe you are looking for something that gives you the ability to build a business of your own one day and better control your future?
Regardless of the reason, if you love dogs, we want to talk with you. Many of our franchise owners started as dog trainers at one of our locations and worked their way to own their own Dog Wizard training business. Starting out as a trainer gives you the ability to go at your own pace while gaining experience in the business.
We get it. Making a career change can be scary, but rest assured, the dog training industry is STRONG and getting even STRONGER! Suburban living with small yards, high-rise condos, leash laws, long working hours, are all the perfect storm for dog owners needing a professional dog trainer. Not to mention, the latest pandemic has forced an emphasis on spending more time at home and outside which has served to significantly increase dog ownership across the country and world.
As a result, your local shelter may have become empty for the first time. Dog breeders have long waiting lists to purchase their pups. Many of these people are first-time dog owners who are seeking a professional trainer to help immediately. Others may try on their own but run into problems as the dog ages out of adolescence and forms habits. Our already strong industry has boomed like a rocket and many of our franchisees have more business than they can handle. What does all this mean? There may not be a better time to become a dog trainer!
Why Becoming a Dog Trainer at The Dog Wizard is a Great Career Choice
You may be hesitant simply because you don’t know where to begin the process of becoming a professional dog trainer. Becoming a successful dog trainer requires investing money and gaining the education and knowledge you might lack. The Dog Wizard offers formal education to aspiring dog trainers and helps find positions for them within our current Dog Wizard franchisee network once their training is completed. After successfully finishing your courses, you can begin work right away in a field where you’re excited and passionate.
Rather than graduating from a dog training school and navigating the industry on your own, by remaining a part of our amazing Dog Wizard network, you will perfect your training skills while continuing to learn from our seasoned trainers.
Professional dog trainers with certifications are much more successful. When you complete your dog training course with The Dog Wizard, you also receive a dog training certification that shows you’re qualified to handle a variety of dog behavior concerns and have a balanced approach to training dogs.
Our franchisees will become mentors and help pave the right path for your future. Some of our graduates have happily remained a trainer with their Dog Wizard franchisee for years. And as mentioned, other dog trainers moved to own their own Dog Wizard franchise.
Regardless of your dream, we have the passion to help you achieve it. All you need is passion, work ethic, desire, and integrity, and we will help you get there.
