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...

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
