    drab4 only responds to posts where his username is in the correct capitalisation.

    Always lower case, my friend. Always lower case.

    Hi mate

    It was a long time ago now, but yes I did used to work in a boarding kennels. I was looking after the pooches day-to-day, rather than training them up. This kind of thing would be a really good job to have on your CV though if you wanted to progress further into actual training

    There are lots of college type courses you can do to further your qualifications, the Animal Care College is one I've heard talked about, though there are lots more besides, and you can actually do full degrees in animal behaviour (a friend of mine at Exeter Uni did this). Check the internet for details of this stuff, and the net is also good to help you find local training schools and so on (I am sure the people there will be happy to give you pointers)

    Then where you go from there is really up to you. You could work with the guide dogs for the blind association, which have several different types of worker, or go work in a dog training school, or set up your own business, or whatever you can think of really

    Sorry I can't be of more help, perhaps someone who works in dog training can give more info
