WONDER DOG TURNS DOG LOVERS INTO DOG TRAINERS.
We are looking to hire & train AnOTHER enthusiastic dog lover to LEARN TO train families (and their dogs) in the basic household commands.
“Wait! I can get paid for training dogs?!”
Yes. Yes you can…and it’s so much fun!
Of course, NO previous dog training experience is required. We’ll train you in all you need to know, and…
NO, we DON’T work with mean or aggressive dogs...just friendly (but disobedient) ones who need some coaching.
TO BE SURE...
Wonder Dog Training is a family-owned and operated team right here in the Mid-South. We are on a mission to help families with dogs enjoy their best friends (without all the frustrations).
We do this by teaching them the 7 basic commands (sit, stay, lie down, place, come, heel & release) while getting rid of the most common problem behaviors (pulling on the leash, jumping up on visitors, bolting out the door, etc).
Our clients don’t want to be *that family* in the park with the uncontrollable canine who is tugging on the leash and trying to chase every squirrel, but instead they want to be *that family* that just strides along easily in the neighborhood with dogs that obey every command instantly so that they can enjoy the beautiful day. Make sense?
This is a really cool job (seriously, who ever even thought of being a flipping’ dog trainer!? How fun, right?!), the pay is good and we really love the team we’ve built so far. We love our clients to death and we love seeing families enjoying their dogs again so quickly. And most of all, we love working with these eager fur balls who just want to understand what their families are trying to say to them.
As you can see, this work has a REALLY substantial impact on the lives of these families, bringing a household from stressful and chaotic, to peaceful and happy...all within just a few sessions with our dog pro’s. It’s a lot easier than you might think.
We are legitimately getting more calls each week from families who need our help than we can handle, and we couldn’t be more pleased!
To keep growing at this pace, each team member is focusing on doing their part without much management. So, the next teammate we’re looking for will be intelligent, naturally compelled to help people and has the ability to work independently (once trained).
IF THIS SOUNDS GOOD SO FAR...
Imagine getting to:
- Wake up looking forward to work!
- Play with & train dozens of affectionate dogs and puppies of all kinds in any given month,
- Train and interact with welcoming dog owners of all kinds (who desperately see you as their hero),
- Do work that actually matters, having a direct impact on the quality of our client’ lives. (If you’ve ever had an unruly dog, you know what we mean).
- Finally understand basic canine behavior and being able to train a dog to simply obey,
- Work with the #1 obedience training company in the Mid-South (see awards on our Home page),
- Hear your friends say, “Oh what a cool job!” when you tell them what you do,
- Get lots of flexibility in your schedule and autonomy in your work,
- Join a team of who takes their personal and professional development seriously. You will grow into a better version of you by merely being around all of us. No kidding.
- Join our growing community of dog families - in homes, in parks & our social media groups,
- Make the equivalent of a whopping $20+ an hour!
IF YOU’RE STILL READING THIS, HERE COMES THE HARD PART...
Here’s what will be required of our new team member.
You must be aligned with our mission to want to help dog families thrive.
You must love dogs and have no fear of them.
You must be naturally personable with good people skills and communication skills.
You must be very self-disciplined, on-time, LOVE to learn & be motivated to succeed and grow. Because we value freedom so much and trust our team so much, we expect nothing less than someone who governs themselves well.
You must be available to work when people are available to meet with you to train their dogs. You will be setting your own schedule with them, but typically this means from 9ish to 8ish weekdays and 9ish to 5ish on Saturdays. You won’t need to work all of these hours, but these will be the typical times that families can meet to train their dogs. As long as you are getting in at least 20-30 sessions a week (plus drive time), then we don’t care when you work. You can even work on Sundays if you want. Again, your schedule is up to you, but lots of folks want to meet afternoons and after work so you’ll need to be available then.
You must have a reliable and nice-looking vehicle which you can proudly park in the driveway of an upper class home and which can get you anywhere in a 30 mile radius.
You must have a decent driving record, background check and be able to pass a drug test.
You must be coachable and be willing to follow protocols. We love new ideas and each personality on the team, but there are a handful of things that must be done EXACTLY without variation or “putting your spin on it” so if that would drive you crazy, this might not be for you.
None of these “MUSTs” are up for negotiation. If this sounds like you, then please keep reading as we really are going to train someone to be a pro dog trainer if they are the right person. If not, then to save us both time, please do not apply because you would be exposed on the first ride day….and who wants that?
GETTING HONEST: THE DOWNSIDES TO DOG TRAINING
Will being a dog trainer be fun? Most of the time.
Will working for Wonder Dog be lucrative? Absolutely.
Will working for us be exciting at many times as you change the world for dog owners? Of course!
Will it be easy? Of course not. That’s why we are paid the big bucks & get so many calls.
Think of our company like a pro sports team: It’s a blast, and glorious, and pays great, but it requires a lot of discipline and hard work and technical skills. Each member on the team takes our work very seriously. We are here to make life enjoyable for dog owners and change the world for them and their dogs.
If you have the right personality and mind-set, you will love this job. But…
