Being friends with my trainers, big and small, I know that the little guys work hard for much less money. They can't earn 4 or 5 figures on a commission. They can't get all the clients to sign up for all the shows, let alone complete day care.
And many trainers working even at the local level came "down" from somewhere else-- they had been an assistant with an A-level trainer, if not a BNT. I want these pros to be able to stay because they offer so much to clients who could never afford to buy the package of experience and skill that comes from those lofty, higher levels.
If the "bad" local trainers stay in business because clients in the local scene have never seen better, we all keep that going if we exclude rated-show trainers from visiting the local show from time to time.
