8 Careers Centered Around Dogs to Consider — 4 Comments

  1. Awesome article! I didn’t know there were so many careers around dogs. As someone who is very fond of dogs, one of these careers could certainly be very interesting. I do wonder what are the pay ranges and demand like for each job, though. Is it difficult to get into these careers? What kind of education is required for these jobs?

    • Hey Kevin,

      I’m thrilled you enjoyed the article about careers involving dogs! There’s indeed a vast array of roles for dog enthusiasts. The pay and demand for these careers vary based on factors like location, experience, and specific roles. For instance, veterinary positions generally require a veterinary degree and have a strong demand, while dog trainers might not need formal education but benefit from certifications and experience.

      Getting into these careers can vary in difficulty. Some roles might require extensive education and experience, while others might be more accessible with dedication and hands-on training. Volunteering, internships, or specialized courses can be great starting points.

      Here’s a general overview of educational paths:

      Veterinarians: They need a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree.

      Dog Trainers: No formal education is required, but certifications or apprenticeships can enhance credibility.

      Animal Behaviorists: This often requires a bachelor’s or master’s degree in animal behavior or a related field.

      Dog Groomers: Training from specialized grooming schools or apprenticeships can suffice.

      Remember, networking, gaining experience, and continuous learning play vital roles in success. Feel free to explore these avenues further based on your interests and goals!

      If you’re considering a specific career, I can provide more detailed information tailored to that path.

      Let me know if you need more specifics or have other questions!

      Best regards,

  2. Thanks so much, John for this great article about dog-based careers.

    I’ve always had dogs and find their unselfish companionship one of the great boons in life.

    But I’ve always trained my dogs and am sometimes in despair when I see dogs taking their owners for a walk, with the owner totally under the animal’s control, darting across the path on one of those extensible leads. I’ve seen dogs off-lead being frantically called by their owners with absolutely no idea of what they are supposed to do,

    I even created a dog training website, but as you point out in your article, there are many careers (or part-time jobs) available to anyone with a love of and interest in dogs.

    I’m sure many will find this knowledge thought-provoking.

    • Hi Phil,

      Thank you for your thoughtful comment! I completely understand your concern about dog walking dynamics and the importance of proper training for dogs and their owners.

      Indeed, the bond between dogs and their owners is special, and it’s fantastic that you’ve created a dog training website to help address these challenges. Training plays a crucial role in fostering a harmonious relationship between pets and their humans, ensuring a safer and more enjoyable experience for both.

      Your dedication to training and your interest in various dog-based careers align perfectly with the diverse opportunities highlighted in Lizzie’s article. Hopefully, it inspires others to explore these avenues while also emphasizing the significance of responsible dog ownership and training.

      Best regards,
