How do you suggest I start earning money training dogs?

I definitely have the love for the animal and a fair knowledge of behavior as I have grown up with dogs, retain everything I hear or read about them, am fascinated by them, have trained my own dogs under the guidance of other trainers. I can certainly train any dog to do basic, beginning obedience. What do you suggest for someone wanting to train others people/dogs for money? BTW, I am in California. That may make a difference in your answers.

I believe in California you have to have a license or a kennel license in order to train others dogs for profit.

If you are old enough to work at a pet store, try filling out an application at Petco. They actually have trainers connected with their stores, and I don't think they have to be old. They might even have some sort of class you would take, but not too sure.

I think it would be a good idea to volunteer your time with a respected and experienced trainer, shelter, or even a vet. Read all you can, watch videos,etc... Starting any business is not easy. Reputation and experience is everything. One needs to advertise and have good personal skills too. Good luck!
