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, market, and succeed in a business of your own, small or large.
Steve and all of us at ABC understand that most people dream of being their own boss and owning their own business by establishing a dog training career. Unfortunately, this dream is beyond the reach of many because of the cost involved in purchasing or building a business. While this is true in most professions, it is not true for professional dog trainers. In fact ABC offers a comprehensive business building section whereas many other dog training schools do not. For trainers, there is little start up cost 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". Enjoy the freedom of making your own hours and being in control of your own destiny.
ABC learn to be a great trainer and a savvy business owner. Let
Steve share his secrets with you!
Income in a Career you Enjoy
dog trainers have the opportunity to earn a significant amount of
money while working with animals and helping people. For many,
this represents the best of all possible worlds. Imagine being
able to make a great living while doing something you love. What's
more, there is tremendous opportunity.
Consider the fact the 2009/2010 National Survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturing Association (APPMA), says 62% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 71.4 millions homes. They also show that pet industry expenditures are rising. They estimate $47.7 billion dollars spent in 2010.
dog trainers are in a unique position since nearly no overhead
cost is needed to start a dog training business. Aside from schooling,
what determines success is your knowledge and skill. It is for
this reason that the ABC program is so valuable, especially when
professional trainers can earn up to $150 per hour, depending
on experience and location.
Trainers can use their knowledge and skill as a way of helping
people and their pets while earning significantly more than the
average part time job. This makes the ABC program especially valuable
for college students or anyone in need of additional income without
having to work long hours on top of your already existing responsibilities.
Nationally, most part time jobs pay between $8.50 and $12.00 per
hour. Compare this to trainers earning an average of $20 per hour.
What's more, you can do something you love.
no school for animal careers can guarantee you employment, ABC can guarantee you
assistance due to our one of a kind relationships in this industry
and over twenty-six years experience in the dog training field.
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.
