Summary

For years I struggled. My dog training business wasn’t making as much money as I had hoped. After a year-and-a-half of struggle, a mentor taught me The Formula that you’ll learn in this book. It’s the playbook for aspiring dog trainers who want to avoid the common pitfalls before entering the industry and for current dog trainers who are struggling to make ends meet.  

As you’ll see, it’s simple in nature but requires you to be diligent about following the process for the long-term if you want to see long-term lasting results in your income. The Formula teaches five principles.  

  1. Learn dog training skills 
  2. Pick the right business model 
  3. Find clients
  4. Blow their minds  
  5. Get referrals
     

BONUS: When you purchase this book you’ll get access to these documents and resources:

  1. Veterinarian referral system PDF book 
  2. Veterinarian referral system audiobook  
  3. Client evaluation form  
  4. Client price quote sheet 
  5. Sample client contract
  6. Access to our private Facebook community  

If you want a step-by-step process to follow when starting or repairing your dog training business, join the thousands of thriving dog trainers who have had implemented The Formula around the world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book

Without having any big expectations, I purchased this e-book to listen to on my long drives. I'm running an established dog training business so I do look for better ways of marketing, growing, expanding and ultimately making more money, I've looked at others in the marketing industry but although they give some good ideas on how to get your name out, they simply say charge more money because you're better than the competition, sell a program rather than charge per lesson or per hour. Great makes sense but what I find when dealing with clients is that they simply take my program price, number of sessions and come up in their head with an hourly price. Ted's book Thriving Dog Trainers is much more than this, Ted lays it out from registering a company name, building a business model, selling your programs to working with clients and everything in between. Thriving Dog Trainers is the first business building book that has kicked me into gear to make changes within my company.
I would recommend this book to everyone!

The author/narrator did a great job!!

The author/narrator is passionate about helping people help dogs & make a living at it. Definitely recommend for those looking to get into the trade as well as those who have hit a brick wall. Will listen to it over & over. It's that encouraging.
