In a time when budgets are tight and competition is high as new dog training businesses pop up around every corner, it can be difficult to make a comfortable living as a full-time dog trainer. Affording health insurance, a mortgage, vet bills, gas money, and – wait for it – FOOD seems to many like a silly fantasy. Most trainers work evenings, weekends, and in every spare minute dreaming of the day when they can quit their day job and take the leap into doing what they love full-time. While many full-time trainers struggle to make a living beyond the paycheck to paycheck lifestyle, much less (gasp) a vacation! The reliability of a steady, predictable income can be elusive, making a full-time business incredibly daunting. For many, the solution may lie in expanding the menu of available services. However, there is a delicate balance somewhere between "multi-service" and "being all things to all people." This five week, in-depth course will walk part-time (or less than part-time) trainers through the ins and outs of adding ancillary services to their current dog training businesses. Learn tips for making the leap to a full-time, profitable business. Delve into various types of ancillary services, their pros and cons, tips for success, and culminate with a tangible and realistic game plan for becoming a successful career dog trainer.
