My mentor seems to be doing great. She owns her own business, is one of the more popular trainers in the southern maryland area, just bought a new car, owns her house. She's been training for the last 15 years and was a groomer before that.

I have been to triple crown it is a great place to learn. I wish I could go back for seminars and continued education but I am way to far away I do hope one day to go back and visit though. You can definitely make good money as a trainer if you are good. Your client base will reflect this as you make a name for yourself. If you start out from scratch you will have to build up your client base so that can some time.

Let me know if you have any specific questions about triple crown.
