I want to be a dog trainer
Like the title says. I love training and working with my dogs. I can't afford nor do I have room for anymore dogs but I would love the chance to work with more dogs. I wasn't sure how to go about getting started. I know I don't have a lot of experience beyond my own dogs for training so I wanted to make my prices either really small or free/donations only.
I do have a ton of knowledge related to training and I'm always looking to learn more. All I'm hoping for is to gain more experience doing it.
My biggest cons are:
Lack of experience of actually training other dogs beyond my own.
Allergic to some dogs depending on their food. Allergic to cats.
Aspergers ontop of having a difficult time with pronunciation. Communication with humans isn't my strong point until they spent a few minutes getting to know me.
Lots of general knowledge on fixing common behavior problems such as nipping, barking, crate training, house marking, loose leash walking on so on.
A ton of resilience.
Very flexible and open minded to new ideas.
Last but not least, creative in matching solutions that would fit/match dog training to work with the people and their dogs personality so everyone gets what I feel is best for them. Note: I've been in education for awhile now and matching people with what works best for them has always been my most useful strength.
