Question by QT in SoCal: How does one become trained to train guide/rescue/assist dogs?
Am really interested in learning how to get involved in this line of work. Does it require some type of degree or certification?

Not sure about training guide dogs but you could start by becoming a trainer for PetSmart. They will send you to training, if out of town they will pay for your hotel & food while there. They also give you a salary during & (of course) after training. You can choose the store you want to work at, as well. I have put my dogs through their classes & I love the results! It seems like a fun job also. I hope this helped some.
