Dog Training Careers For ABC Dog Training School Graduates

Dog Training Career Information

Many exciting options are available to certified ABC graduates

Dog Training & Working With Animals

Own your own business
Part of what makes the ABC program unique is our dog career Business Building module. The Business Building module was written by Mr. Steven Appelbaum, who started his own dog training company in 1980 by hanging homemade flyers on supermarket bulletin boards and fourteen years later owned the largest dog training company in North America employing over 500 trainers in forty-three states and five Canadian provinces.

In this module, Steve will explain in simple step by step fashion how to create, manage and market, a business of your own.

Steve and all of us at ABC understand that many people dream of being their own boss.  Still others simply desire enough knowledge to start and run a small business. 

Unfortunately, when it comes to owning your own business, this dream is beyond the reach of many because of the cost involved in purchasing or building one. While this is true in most professions, it is not true for professional dog trainers. For trainers, there is relatively low startup costs to create a business of your own. You will not only learn how to become a dog trainer, but you will learn how to start your own dog training company for as little as a few hundred dollars from someone who has "walked the walk".

With ABC learn to be a great trainer and a savvy business owner. Let Steve share his secrets with you!  Please note: No school can guarantee you employment or success after you graduate.  We can however give you many of the tools you may need.

Unlimited Income in a Career you Enjoy

Professional dog trainers have the opportunity to earn money while working with animals and helping people. For many, this represents the best of all possible worlds. Imagine being paid while doing something you love.

Consider that the 2015/2016 National Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), says 65% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 79.7 million homes. They also show that pet industry expenditures are rising. They estimate $62.75 billion dollars will be spent in 2016, an increase of nearly 4% from the prior year.1

Professional dog trainers are in a unique position since very little in overhead cost is needed to start a dog training business. Aside from schooling, part of what determines success is your knowledge, dedication and skill.

Part-Time Income
Professional Trainers can use their knowledge and skill as a way of helping people and their pets. This makes the ABC Dog Obedience Program especially valuable for college students or anyone in need of additional income. What's more, you can do something you love.

So if you are considering a career change or just want to earn extra income, let us help you become a dog trainer. For more information about our dog training school feel free to contact us.
