Positive Reinforcement (R+) Dog Trainers

Education / Mentorship / Coaching

Working with dogs and their families is one of the best professions there is. For many of us it’s the ultimate way to combine our work with our passion.

We get to make a real difference to the lives of dogs and their people every day.

We become dog trainers because we love dogs, and want to see them happily living with their families.

But what about business?

Often we’re amazing at what we do with dogs and people but we still struggle to make ends meet because we forget it’s a business.

Working with dogs and running a successful BUSINESS are two different things, which is why we created a Professional R+ Canine Community just for You!

Join The Community!
