Work with Marty Nemko, 2/21/19: What's it really like to be a dog trainer?

  On the Feb. 21, 2019 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with long-time San Francisco dog trainer Beverly Ulbrich (www.poochcoach.com) about what it's really like to be a dog trainer: what's surprising, emotional, and whether it's a viable small business to start when it seems there's a dog trainer under every rock.In the program's 2nd segment, upskilling: Should you specialize or be a generalist? How can you get skilled faster and yet credibly without a back-to-school stint?

Plus, you can call in for a Workover: Whatever career conundrum is plaguing you or someone you care about, I'll do my best to help you address it.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

The programs are archived as a podcast on NPR.org, iTunes, and in perpetuity on this webpage.
