A few weeks ago I ordered a pile of books from Amazon.com one of them being So You Want to be a Dog Trainer. I’m not really thinking about becoming a dog trainer I just enjoy reading new information about dog training, dog careers, dog training certifications, Dog Training Schools, Online Dog Training etc.
This book is a very short read, but filled with all kinds of useful information that your normal dog training books don’t usually have. As you might have guessed from the title this book is about how to become a dog trainer and doesn’t really cover dog training techniques.
So You Want To Be A Dog Trainer Review
I love books I can read in a day or two because whether or not it’s a good book I will finish it. The giant tomes that go on and on whether or not they are exciting books or boring text I often don’t finish. And lets face it the majority of dog training books available are dry and slow reads.
So You Want to be a Dog Trainer was short and to the point. I finished it off in a couple days and found it very informative. Some of the most interesting points were:
- Becoming a dog trainer is not just about training dogs, but about training people.
- What kind of dog trainer do you want to be – you don’t have to be an expert in all areas of dog training maybe you just want to teach group lesson basic obedience.
- Dog Training Schools – the book talks about many different places where you can get an education in dog training.
- Dog Training Certification – there really isn’t one.
- The in’s and out’s of setting up your dog training business
There are many other great points throughout the book, but I’m going to save some of that for a more detailed description I plan on putting on the Online Dog Training Schools website.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but there are some things I didn’t like about it. If you want to hear my negative commentary on this book then check out Online Dog Training Schools in the next few days where I will put up a more comprehensive review or just subscribe to the RSS feed and you will receive the review through your RSS reader.
