Start Your Own Dog Training Business
Sign up for this 12-week, step-by-step course to launching your business.

You CAN do it.
I've been in your shoes.  
When I started my first dog training business, I spent over 20 hours researching how to form an LLC - and I hadn't even begun to learn about my new tax responsibilities.

Navigating the government's website trying to find the right information made me go cross-eyed. Their website is NOT user friendly - let alone new business owner friendly.

I found myself asking: "Does this apply to me?" "What taxes do I have to pay exactly? And where do I pay them?" I know I lost several nights of sleep wondering if I was missing something or if I was doing it correctly. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
Why did I persevere through that painful process? Because I knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel.

I knew I could help dogs and their owners in my community. I knew I wanted to share the rewards of using positive reinforcement based training. Seeing clients make new and even more powerful connections with their dogs brought happy tears to my eyes and I knew I wanted to make this my full-time gig. 

I've since started up a dog training business in two states because of a move across the country and knew I could do the most good by sharing what I've learned with others. My goal is to help other trainers share their craft with their communities - we need more professional positive reinforcement based dog trainers out there!

Make a difference for dogs and dog owners in your community by becoming a professional dog trainer. 
Stop underestimating yourself. Let's do this together.

What Participants are Saying

"I liked how it was broken down and especially that the tone of it was extremely helpful and supportive. It is very nerve wracking to be starting your own business, so to have and feel support makes a huge difference. One of the main ways that it helped me was to know how to appropriately protect myself legally. It’s a topic that no one wants to talk about, but it’s a necessity if you’re going to be a dog trainer. Another way is it helped me with knowing how to build my website and how to market myself. These things are essential in today’s world. You have to have an online presence and you have to get your name out there."​ Zane Brown

FAQ About This Course
What would happen if I didn’t take this course?
Assuming you're serious about getting your business started this year and actually want to turn a profit, it would probably take you 3x to 5x the amount of time to​ do that without this course. You'll likely spend over 100 hours researching topics like LLCs, insurance, liabilities, managing clients, making a website, and more. This course is meant to speed up that process by providing you the information you need, when you need it, and with the next steps laid out in front of you.

​Additionally, research won't be able to provide you with industry-related insights into how you can best manage your business and clients like I can as someone with 10 years of experience in dog training. I'm here to prevent you from making some detrimental mistakes that could lead to bad reviews, burnout, or even lawsuits if you're not careful.

Lastly, this course comes with a unique group of people in a similar situation that are great to collaborate with and I'll be there contributing ideas and recommendations all along the way. I want to help you start tand run your dream dog training business!

How will I access the lesson material? 
Have you noticed that every online product out there is now asking for a subscription? I have and I hate it! If you pay for any of The Modern Dog Trainer products, you get to keep them for life. For this course, the lesson and included materials will be emailed to you once a week. You'll get access to our exclusive Facebook group immediately in the first lesson once you sign up. Once the lesson is in your inbox, you can download it and access it forever. 

Does this course qualify for any CEUs? 
Yes! As of August 5th, 2017, all new course participants will receive 5 CEUs with the CCPDT. 
How do I know if I'll be successful?
I won't make any guarantees, but I'll do everything in my power to provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your business. This 12 week course is packed full of important information and step-by-step instructions to help you take the right steps and make significant progress with your business. 

Additionally, the last few modules teach you how to market yourself even if you don't have any relationships with local veterinarians or pet stores. I'll teach you how to utilize online marketing to generate new client inquiries immediately upon establishing your business structure, policies, and insurance. I'll walk you through how to build your own website and how to use social media and Google to attract new clients. 

Online marketing can generate the calls you need to start acquiring new clients quickly and efficiently without spending hours developing handouts for veterinarians or local businesses. 

This course sounds way too good to be true. What's the catch?
I've had course participants tell me this before they joined. It makes me smile ear to ear because I've been in your shoes and I know the challenges you're up against - only I didn't have anyone to help me when I was going through it and pursuing my dream. I am truly excited to help you become a professional dog trainer with a successful business. This course sounds too good to be true, but it's not! It's exactly what I would have wanted when I was just starting out and deciding to go fulltime.

​​​​​​​It could have saved me so much time, given me the confidence to know I was doing the right thing, and helped me create a great business from the beginning.
