Becoming a Dog Trainer

Becoming a dog trainer is getting more & more popular. It can be very confusing when you start looking into how to become a dog trainer. There is no government set qualification. If you want to be come a nurse, a doctor, an accountant and so on there are set procedures & qualifications to follow. Becoming a dog trainer does not have a clear pathway.becoming a dog trainer

One thing is certain sure. You need to do not only theory training but practical training if you want to become a dog trainer. Dog training is very much about teaching people so you need to be sure you want to work with people as well as dogs.

With no standard qualification or regulation in the industry you need to take a look at the courses available and decide what is right for you. Who is running a business that you want to be connected to?

What you want to do after your training?

  • Do you want to work for someone else?
  • Will you set up and run your own business?
  • Are you looking for full time work or part time work?

Dog training should be predominantly outdoors. Dogs are far more relaxed when they are out in the open. Training outdoors gets dogs prepared for the park too. dog training lead walking

Before making any decisions go along and visit several different dog training classes in your area. Have a look what’s around and think about how you would run your training.

Get in touch with people that provide courses. Ask questions. If you are close enough or can find the time, pop along for a visit. Talk to our team members. Those who have already completed our courses to become dog trainers.

I can certainly recommend being a dog trainer as a great way of life. Live to work (as well as play) but don’t work to live. Life is too short.
