To become a dog obedience trainer, you should be a people person, have patience, and love animals. Becoming a dog obedience trainer is relatively inexpensive. To get started, you’ll need a collar, leash, treat bag, and maybe a clicker. While training isn’t required, you may benefit from learning the skills needed for the job. After all, that’s why the average person goes to someone with experience for help with their dog! As a trainer, you’ll learn to recognize milestones in dog behavior, become a resource for dog owners, and teach owners how to work with their dogs.
