On track to reach three quarters of a trillion USD by 2020, the pet industry in 2013 was valued at nearly $60 billion! The pet industry has been virtually unaffected by the current recession, continuing to grow even as other sectors cut back and suffer. The largest (and fastest growing) segment is, you guessed it, DOGS!

What does this have to do with you?

The Canine Club Academy was founded to help dog lovers like you turn an enthusiasm for dogs into a rewarding career. The aim of the Course is to equip you with the real-world skills, credentials and marketing tools to become a professional in the booming canine industry.

To answer the demands of a growing industry, not only big players like PetCo but also thousands of freelance dog professionals have been capitalizing on the market trends and taking advantage of opportunities to provide valuable services like dog sitting, walking and training needed by dog owners across the country. Jobs in the dog industry are growing, but opportunities to work independently from home are growing even faster.

The "CanineClub Business Toolkit" is a key component of the Course. From a selection of professionally designed websites and customizable print ready promotional mailers and advertisements to forms and handouts you will need, the marketing kit includes everything required to market, promote, and grow your dog services business.

We want to help you achieve your dream to work with dogs.

All of us at the Canine Club Academy (Course Authors, Tutors, and Student Advisers) are working professionals in the dog care industry, and most of us run our own businesses from home. We help dog lovers develop the skills and knowledge to succeed by offering one-on-one mentoring and instruction in dog training and handling.

The online course combines the flexibility of studying at home with the security of a personal tutor who will mentor you every step of the way. Your tutor will work with you to develop your skills, and help you apply them in a new career either with a dog industry employer in your area or as you start your own exciting home business.

To help you make the most of your learning opportunity, we have divided the course into two sections. The first ten modules will give you a solid foundation for working with and training dogs in a variety of situations, and result in your Dog Training Certification. The last four modules will take you step-by-step through the process of starting your own home-based dog business of your choice.

By the time you have completed your Certification, you will have acquired not only the dog training and handling skills, but also the business and marketing knowledge required to begin your exciting new career as a Dog Care Professional.

   Every year, countless pets are relinquished by their owners or rescued from the streets and brought to shelters. We believe that every pet should have a family and a forever home. To help these animals find loving homes, the
CanineClub Academy donates a portion of all proceeds to Animal Shelters and Pet Rescues.
