Where to start..

I was hoping someone can lead me in the right direction. I have a friend that is training dogs right now and she would like to start focusing on Military working dogs and eventually that being he sole job. Is there anywhere she can start looking or anyone in particular she can talk to that may help guide her? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I didn't respond to this sooner. You posted when I was in the field.

Is she currently in the military? If so, she should reclass as a 31K Military Dog Handler. If she is looking to train dogs for the military, they train most of their own dogs. Some civilian kennels train for the Special Operations group, but you need a couple years experience as a handler to get into those places as a handler.

If she is looking for an entry level position, she should look at American K9, Vohne Liche Kennels and Loganhaus Kennels.

Hope this helps!
