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...

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
