Write for The Modern Dog Trainer


What we’re looking for: While there aren’t strict guidelines about the type of posts we feature, we find that “how-to” submissions, stories about a major transition, client relationship advice, ideas for personal and professional growth, and essays on unique experiences work best. We love posts that help our readers connect with energy that enables growth, vibrancy, and connection.

What we look for in training method articles: When submitting a training method or strategy, please be sure to include step by step instructions. Ideally, you’ll have a video we can share to demonstrate the skill.  Please include an introductory paragraph explaining how this training method is useful or why this method has become one of your favorites.

What we look for in event posts: While a photo submission with these posts is not necessary, it is highly encouraged. The photo should be original, and it should be high-quality. When submitting this kind of post, please provide specific details about where the event was held, who hosted it, who spoke, and what you learned from the experience.

Photos: All contributors are encouraged to submit photos with their posts. Photos should be at least 850 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall (bigger in either direction, or both, is fine).
