Eventually? Goal is just to be a really successful trainer. I hate doing dogsitting and daycare, but there are zero opportunities for any other job here, especially with the inability to work without a service dog.

There are no local training clubs or anything that you could start off teaching classes at... help get your name out?

Holy christ there are people who bikejor and/or scooter with the line attached to their skijor belt instead of the bike/scooter.

The mere thought is enough to give me nightmares.

My hair is turning blonde
I don't know if I am happy about this or not, yet. I am getting a lot of compliments, but I'm a red hair and freckles kinda girl
Sun/chlorine... What are you doing to me!?!?!

Nope. Plus, I'm not going to be here much longer (hopefully), so I can handle doing this until I leave. I'm thinking once we're out, I can either try to find a "regular" job, and/or kick up a dog training/walking business.

If you come this way I strongly encourage you to apply to guide dogs for the blind. It may be an excellent fit. Starting pay was very high, great benefits, and everyone had their dogs or career change dogs trotting along with them all over.

I did a few working interviews and it was hard to walk away even when I got a better deal at my place of employment.

Me too EXACTLY! I do in-home boarding, and I'm really not enjoying it at all anymore. I want to just do training, but I live WAY out in the middle of nowhere and I just can't see getting enough training clients out here (with the boarding I offer pick up and drop off services and try to mostly do long stays, so the 4 hr round trip I usually make is ok, but for training I just don't see it working...). Definitely don't want to move, either.

On top of that, I really need to continue my training education. I took a 3 month course a few years back but mostly I don't agree with the methods taught, so that was a whole lot of money down the drain Now I'm all in debt, so finding less pricey means of education for the moment, learning, always learning. They were running KPA this year from a nearby town and I wanted to take it SO BADLY but I just didn't have the money. I'm hoping it will run again here sometime when I might be able to scrape together the funds.

Ideally I would love to do some sort of training that didn't involve teaching the people, just me and the dogs out here in the boonies, but I'm stumped as to what I could do. Just not sure where I can go from here. But I really don't think I can handle the boarding thing much longer!! Aaaaghh...

We're in the same spot! I do in-home stuff, too. If I did it for a facility, I wouldn't mind a bit. I just need to have that separation between home and work, y'know?

Adrianne, I'm not opposed to that idea at all. We're hoping for within the next year... staying with his family at first, then securing a job and moving down to OR.

Totally. In theory, it's a really cool job. But the reality of always having other peoples' dogs around gets completely exhausting after a while.
