I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for all of your dog training needs. I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!

Dog Trainer Business Resources

These are the resources I recommend for all beginning dog trainers when setting up their business.

  • Starting a Limited Liability Company (LLC)  – I highly recommend starting an LLC for your business, it will help keep your belongings safe! 
  • Google Plus – Youll want to register your site with Google Plus.
  • Google Webmaster and Google Analytics – Linking your site to Google webmaster and analytics will help Google recognize your site as a legitimate website.
  • Google Authorship – If you have a blog, you must sign up to link your articles to your Google + profile so when people search for things through Google, your picture pops up and makes you look more credible.
  • MailChimp – This is a free email newletter system. While I use Aweber because it allows for automation, starting out with a free newsletter system with a few less functions is just fine too.
  • Aweber – This is a paid email newsletter system which I use. I can schedule when posts are to be emailed out, have tons of email templates to choose from. I recommend it if you plan on using email newsletters a lot (such as for a blog).
  • SuperSaaS – This a free online scheduling and payment system! Currently my favorite tool right now for clients to use. They can schedule an appointment and pre-pay at the same time.


How to Start Your Own Dog Blog

After being asked by several people how to start a blog, I figured I’d post how I did it here for all to see.

  1. Website Hosting: Get a website host. I do not recommend getting a free blog because you leave some control to the host and some will advertise as they like on your site. Also, they could possibly delete your blog if they wanted to. So… Get your own host! I use BlueHost for all my websites and I’ve been very satisfied with them.
  2. WordPress: Install WordPress on your site. And check out this link to learn how to use it: http://youtu.be/w9OhG7Wx1CY.
  3. Website Theme: Pick a Theme for your site. This step is optional, but will allow you to customize the look you want to give your new site. You can choose from lots of free themes or you can really go crazy with some of these: Woothemes,
  4. Tracking Stats: At some point, you’ll want to install Google Analytics to keep track of your visitor statistics.
