Get Started on the DogSmith Fast Track!

Here at the DogSmith we are sitting on tens of thousands of dollars of business and marketing tools and resources that we want to share with competent, ethical and highly motivated pet professionals. The investment to join The DogSmith is less than it would cost you to go it alone, and the ongoing small monthly fee to cover the cost of all these resources will make you smile rather than grimace!

  2. Determine whether you meet the criteria to join as a DogSmith licensee , if you do not have enough experience we may require you to participate in a Skill Gap Assessment which may result in you needing to participate in one of the DogNostics Dog Training or Behavior Programs
    • Are you a professional credentialed Dog Trainer, Behavior Consultant or Pet Care Professional?
    • Do you agree with The DogSmith Guiding Principles?
    • Do you love helping people and pets? 
    • Are you ethical, honest and prepared to work hard to achieve success?


The DogSmith Fees

Each licensee has an enrollment fee that covers your transition to becoming a DogSmith as well as access to all DogSmith intellectual property, trademarks, services, systems and programs. Commencing 5 months after you join there is a small monthly fee that covers all the benefits and support services and systems  you receive. This fee then increases by 5 % each year.  Your monthly fees will be confirmed to you along with your initial set-up fee during our preliminary discussions.
