I am thinking of opening a dog training center. It would not be for several years however. I am wanting to build my name up and train under more people before i go out on my own. What do you look for when you look for a trainer? I am thinking of going through the animal behavior college to get a degree in training from them. I work with a service dog group now. They said I could get a training certification through them. So i'm wondering which would mean more to future clients? I know people will want to know what i do with my dogs. So i've been working my tail off with them. Now that we are on the other side of my Dh's kidney transplant, i can really get going. Both of them will be getting CGC's and therapy dog certifications this summer. Kiowa will be working with people needing physical therapy. Juny is going to be doing reading assistance programs. Kiowa i have started on scent detection. He will be trained for search and rescue and drugs/bombs. He also does demos for the service dog group . Juny may or may not be trained for scent work. I got her from the pound so she needs lots of work still. I need to build her attention span some more. Shes very ditsy. I'm thinking of titling them both in AKC rally. Juny in agility. I'm wondering if just two dogs is enough to say that i've trained dogs? These are the first two i have done on my own. I've worked with my mom with the family dogs for years. I've worked with a few clients as well. I'm at the four dog limit that DH has so until my two old guys go no more dogs for me. Once i have a working car again i hopefully will get to teach the puppy class my group does. Then do the other classes and be a CGC tester. Im going to be taking a online course to be a vet assistant as well. What else should i do? I use mostly positive training methods. I do clicker training sometimes too. Thanks!
