Absolutely! All you need is persistence, patience, passion and use the support system you receive in the course! You will always be assessing your skill level and matching it with the right types of dogs for your ability.

Is this a lucrative career running a SAFE School For Dogs?

Dog training and highly advanced dog daycares are one of the fastest growing businesses that are recession proof. More dogs are having behavioral problems and lead unnatural lives. This means they need extra support from skilled trainers that understand how to socialize dogs (all the exciting training content we offer in our 6 week online course!).  Dog parents are willing to pay top dollars to get this specialized help so their dogs can be happy. Our SAFE School trainers charge around $70 per dog for a day of school.
