If you do not love dogs, then being a professional dog trainer is not your vocational calling. You may like one breed of dog in particular in which you could become a specialized breeder such as a German Shepard trainer or any other breed or type of dog.

Attend as many classes as possible on dog behavior. Take whatever workshops and seminars as possible in dog training and animal behavior. Read and subscribe to several dog magazines. Check books out of the library on different dog breeds and their various characteristics and behavior patterns. Sign up for newsletters from your local canine groups and other animal organizations. Volunteer at your local animal shelter.

There are so many avenues to pursue in your quest to become a professional dog trainer. To be the best will take several years of intense study and hands-on practice. There is some correspondence courses that tout that you can become a professional dog trainer is as little as six months.

This organization is the leading clearinghouse for information having to do with all pets. They have many resources from classes and training to workshops and internships.

If you are serious about studying to be a professional dog trainer, you have to be diligent with your studies. You have to garner practical experience in a variety of ways, whether it is volunteering at a shelter or taking a job as a veterinarian's assistant. Becoming a professional dog trainer will not happen overnight. Three to five years is the average length of time it takes to turn into a professional dog trainer.
