    I used to be in the dog training niche and I had build up a list of almost 500 before quitting. I never made a single sale, and got tons of complaints every time I sent out a broadcast. That niche is extremely difficult because it's loaded with stuck-up know it alls and bitchy soccer moms.

    To answer your question, though, I got a lot of leads from Ezine Articles and Craigslist. I also joined all of the most popular dog training forums, but caught hell in a lot of them as soon as I posted my squeeze page link in the forum signature.

    I didn't get banned because it wasn't against the forum TOS, but people got really nasty and started calling me a loser and a "parasite affiliate marketer". The funny thing is, I waited for about a month to put the forum sig in. I actually linked to a couple of articles I had written before that so it didn't seem like I was just jumping in the forum to get leads.

    It's a real tough niche and I got real frustrated and gave up on it. But best wishes and good luck to you.

    Do a splash page opt-in, it increases the success rate like crazy.

    Maybe put articles in it and make it rank in the first page of google then maybe flip it afterwards.

    I agree with twinreal. PLR giveaway is a good way to go here...maybe do up a quick e-book on say, dog training?
