    Pros

    The job itself was very fun and engaging, you met a lot of people and helped them with lots of different advice and training methods, there was a variety of animals to interact with that the store sold or customers brought in with them.

    Cons

    The commission is so low for how much work you put into the training classes and the management was supportive of the training program but overall it was a lot of pressure to meet sales goals by yourself as well as little pay off. The training program only teaches you how to train healthy happy puppies with happy nice owners, that’s not the common pet parent. Usually you get rescue dogs or dogs with behavioral issues with obstinate owners or confused owners and limited training to work on those issues. You either deny them training/help and not make sales goals or you take them on and learn as you go and through trial/error and possible refunding of the class to the owner when you can’t make progress you weren’t trained to give. I wasn’t prepared for 80% of the training I was doing and I was pressured by sales goals to take on cases that required a lot of after work study and lesson planning on my behalf to be able to offer them what they needed.
