How do I become a dog trainer? What are some of my options?
- Learn from a reputable training academy
If you have some money to spend, a dog training academy like the Karen Pryor Academy is a good option.
- Apprentice with a professional dog trainer
Look up some positive reinforcement dog trainers and send inquiries asking if they are taking apprentices.
- Start working in a related field
Working in an animal shelter, humane organization, as a dog walker, etc…will most likely give you exposure to trainers at some point, and experience with animals.
