How much could I make being a dog trainer?

I want to be a dog trainer but my parents are worried I won't make enough money to support myself.

I'm a certified dog trainer & there is always plenty of work available as most people want their dogs to be trained in even the most basics like Sit,heel,drop etc

I usually do group training maximum of ten people & $30 per person that's $300 for 20 minutes work.

You won't be a millionaire but it's easy money.

A tip, if you aren't a"certified " dog trainer, do the course & get the accreditation as almost all of my clients ask.

Good luck.

Do you think this is a good choice for a dog lover/ military wife?

Well, it's a great choice for any dog lover as the first requirement is that the dogs must feel comfortable around you & dogs, as most animals, can easily pick out a animal lover. It's like a sixth sense for them.

As for a military wife, I'm not a woman & not married to a soldier (lol) but if your husbands away for long periods, it is a great way to keep yourself fit & motivates to not only help your dogs but other dogs as well & a great way to make new friends ( both of the human & canine species).

Hope this helps.

Get yourself a "regular" job. Work as a dog trainer on weekends, part time. If you're good at it, you'll build up a reputation for yourself and perhaps can do it full time.
