A while ago (can I say really behind on my posts?), I was contacted by Tony over at the Canine Club Academy asking me to check out their website. They have a unique plan to make the world a better place for dogs and their humans. Which I would say is a good thing. They are offering a scholarship for people interested in working in dog-related careers; training, grooming, daycare, walking etc, to go through their course. Here’s a bit of information from Tony:
“Because the course is new, we are looking to pilot it with a group of friendly, enthusiastic dog lovers. Along that line, we are offering a number of full-ride and partial scholarships to individuals who want to work in the dog industry. Prior experience working with or training/handling dogs is a plus, but we are also reserving a few scholarships for people with little to no experience, who just love dogs. The chosen candidates will take the course (12 to 24 weeks long based on the student), and then give us feedback on the course, their personal tutor, and the business toolkit. Scholarship recipients will also be given professionally designed marketing materials, including a business website (which we will host), and taught how to use them to promote their new businesses. By the end of the course, with the help of their tutors, they will have already started running their own dog business (dog training, dog walking, dog daycare, etc.). To be considered for the scholarship, please fill out a short online application at http://canineclubacademy.com/financialaid.php.”
I checked out their website and it sounded interesting so I though I would pass it along.
