Do you really have what it takes to learn everything you can about human and dog psychology?
Have you been a outstanding leader in everything you have done in your life so far?
Have you dug to the depths of your soul to become a better more balanced human being in order to be able to support those around you?
Do you think about dogs and people all day every day?
Does spending time with dogs make time disappear?
Does spending time empowering people fill your heart and soul?
Do you naturally gravitate towards helping others in everything you do?
Have you read ever book and then bought the videos of those human beings who wrote the book in order to make sure they really know what the hell they are talking about?
Have you traveled around your country going to seminars and training classes?
Have you been to every single dog trainer’s class in your community to see what everyone is doing out there…right or wrong…in your opinion?
Do people naturally gravitate towards you to hear what you have to say about life?
Are you so easy going and strong that you can stand to stand in the face of irrational, obscure, human ways of being and yet you can still offer solutions to the human and dog in front of you?
Are you prepared to lose sleep and personal time in your life thinking about ways to help people that don’t actually want to be helped?
Do you have dogs? Have you lived with dogs for years?
Do you love to observe their behavior and admire how they work together as a pack?
Are you prepared to constantly increase your knowledge and learn continually what’s new in health, wellness and training for these dogs and their people?
Or do you simply like dogs?
Do you think all the dog trainers out there seem cool?
Does it seem like it’s an easy fun job to you?
Are you coming from the ego and thinking this will be easy money?
I’m telling you now, this is one of the most important jobs that you will ever do in your life.
You are helping one species understand another and helping them live in balance. You are saving a dog’s life each and every time that they come to you for your knowledge and support.
You are reducing the level of stress in a family’s life by sharing your compiled information.
You are changing the way people see their devoted 15 year family member and keeping them all safe and happy.
It is now your official responsibility to be there for these people and their dogs for the life time of their dog. It is your responsibility to have answers for them each and every time that they call. It is your responsibility to beat your head up against the wall while you repeat things over and over to them in one hundred different ways until they finally get it or re-home the dogs, or worse…put it to sleep…
Are you ready for this? It will be the roller coaster ride of your life.
You will have times that fill your heart and soul. You will make lifelong friends and meet people who take dogs as serious and personal as you do.
You will also experience the exact opposite…you will cry until you are out of tears and you will want to quit one hundred times over….
Are you strong enough and do you deserve to help people and dogs understand one another to the fullest extent of your abilities…
Okay then…blessings on your journey.
