Hi, I’m Ines McNeil and I’m the founder of The Modern Dog Trainer Blog and Podcast. I’m a CPDT-KA and have been training dogs for over 10 years. When I started my dog training business several years ago, I was lucky enough to have a mentor nearby to give me advice and guidance about running my business, managing clients, policies and all the other questions I had about starting up,but I know that many of you don’t have that luxury due to location or other local dog trainers being way too competitive. That’s why I started this blog and now this online community.

Ines McNeil, CPDT-KA, Founder The Modern Dog TrainerWhen I realized that there were far too many discussions and questions floating around in free Facebook groups than I could possibly have time to answer, I decided to narrow my attention down to people that were truly serious about starting up their dog training businesses in the next 12 or so months. Those that want to make their hobby into a career. Those that are ready to invest in the business side of their profession as well as their dog training education. I offer online email courses, but nothing beats personal, productive discussions amongst like-minded individuals and weekly coaching like I’m offering through this community.

This is the community I wish I had when I was first starting out.
