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

  1. Veterinarian referral system PDF book 
  2. Veterinarian referral system audiobook  
  3. Client evaluation form

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.

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!

Dog trainers add this one to your list.

Great info for dog trainers. I saw Ted seek out what info was needed from social media platforms then put it in this book. I witnessed him ask input from dog trainers all over. It's a good end result Ted. Thank you.

Extremely helpful

This book is extremely helpful as I am. Pursuing a career in dog training! Only down side is that it offers american/Canadian websites and resources. Very clear and concise
