Employment by Other Training Facilities
You might choose to begin your career by working for another training facility. This would give you the benefit of sharpening your skills under the supervision of more experienced trainers. The experience that you gain from handling a myriad of dog breeds at various levels in their training is invaluable. Remember every dog is unique, by handling as many dogs as possible you increase your readiness to handle a multitude of situations.
NOTE: Be aware that many boarding, grooming, and training facilities want a handler in their employ to sign a contract that limits their ability to work independently in the geographic area that their facility is located in.
