Dog training "Laws or Rules"

6 posts in this topic

Is there any laws in MN on Dog training as far as, Do you need a liecense to be a dog trainer, or can anyone train dogs for money?? I just had a friend ask me to train his lab. He said if I can train his dog. He has a couple other guys that want dogs trained and if I did good with his dog they would want me to train there dogs.

I was just wondering if I would have to do anything special for this (Leagal wise)? I would be charging some money for my service time as well as boarding.I've trained labs in the past with pretty good results and he knows this. I won't charge him but if his friends want me to train there dogs it will be a differnt story. This would be more than dog training it would also involve a little training with the dog owners as to how to handle there dog.

Hi Pickle Farmer probably just 116 people like myself that don't know the answer. I'm guessing it depends how deep you get into it. Might need special insurance for it?

I don't believe that is a regulated industry here, I would call a couple trainers and ask them. Might not get a straight answer though, they might feel threatened you're trying to take business away from them.

I dont believe there are any state laws. Just check with the county to make sure there are no special ordinances or permits required. I think you would be fine but I would get some sort of insurance policy for the business since we live in a lawsuit happy world.

Thanks guys. I will check with the county and see if theres any speical laws. Any dog trainers out there don't have to worry about me taking away any Biz from them.I'm not looking to start a training business. I just wanted to make sure that I wouldn't get in trouble for helping train a couple dogs. Thanks again...

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
