Training

Online & Hands-On Teaching

We do not just talk about dogs and their behavioral problems. Becoming a dog trainer means that you will have to see first hand, and work directly with dogs that are experiencing these problems. We feel that hands on training is important to become a dog trainer that operates confidently, independently, and reliably. But first you will complete our extensive on-line training which you can do at your own pace.

Working with Actual Clients

We truly believe that training and teaching dogs is the easiest part of the job. The difficulties lie in teaching the owners how to handle their dogs. Since the training programs are only successful if it works for the owner too, possessing this ability is vital. We spend a lot of time making sure you have the skills necessary to help the owners as well as the dogs. You will work with numerous breeds, problems, and clients. You will get to practice everything you will do in your own business and get really good at it!

Training Programs

You will learn to teach many different classes such as scent class, baby prep, grooming socialization, etc. These additional classes will allow you to offer a full list of menu items, which will in return, provide several additional revenue streams other than just obedience. Not only does this offer more revenue streams to your clients, but the level of expertise you present to your potential clients is much more appealing from the start.

Marketing

Implementing successful marketing strategies is the key to getting your name out there and being found by prospective customers. Our corporate marketing team incorporates graphic design, public relations, search engine optimization and other proven techniques that have been successfully implemented by our extensive trainer network. While you focus on becoming the best dog trainer you can be, we’ll use our extensive toolkit to make sure your community knows you’re there to solve their canine’s problems.
