...Howard Hayman of Wellesley never would have imagined that his second career would also be devoted to education - the education of dogs and their owners, that is. A former vice president with Verizon, Hayden had been with the telecom company and its previous incarnations his entire career, and had long planned to retire at age 55. He just wasn't sure what he would do next.

Howard Hayman and his dog Kelsey

...
Two years ago Howard Hayman retired from a 34-year career at Verizon Communications Inc., traded in his suit and tie for a leash and a training collar and launched Per`fect-A-Pup LLC, where he coaches canines on how to be less aggressive, hyperactive or shy.
Hayman, 59, knew when he left his job as Verizon vice president of customer service that he wanted to stay in the working world. He still wanted to have close contact with customers, but he could do without the office politics. So he packed up his golden retriever, Kelsey, for a road trip to National K-9 Inc., a dog training center in Columbus, Ohio, where he became certified as a trainer and behaviorist.

Howard Hayman of Wellesley never would have imagined that his second career would also be devoted to education - the education of dogs and their owners, that is. A former vice president with Verizon, Hayden had been with the telecom company and its previous incarnations his entire career, and had long planned to retire at age 55. He just wasn't sure what he would do next. One thing he did do was get a dog, a golden retriever, who joined the household after the death of another golden a few years before. Hayman, who had dogs throughout his life, worked with a trainer and was intrigued by the process. So he went with his new pet to the National K-9 Learning Center in Columbus, Ohio for a training program to become certified as a dog trainer and behaviorist. The job dovetails with the zeal for customer service he displayed in his previous career, says Hayman, 58, who'll run to clients' homes if they have any problem with their dogs. Although he's training the pets, he's really training their owners, he says. "Having had so many people work for me and understanding their different personalities in different situations really plays to the business that I'm doing now," says Hayman. Like Wilson, Hayman enjoyed the executive perks of his former job. When he arranged his own itinerary to travel to a recent dog-training conference in Texas, he realized the luxury of once having a secretary who planned his schedule. He acknowledges that he sometimes still clings to the status of his former job, telling people that he's a retired officer from Verizon before revealing his current pursuit. Indeed, if someone would have told Hayman five years ago that he would become a dog trainer, he would have laughed at them, he says. But now, after about a year in his own business, he embraces his new life in service to his customers - and the people who own them. "What is very clear is that you need a reason for being," Hayman says. "It doesn't have to be a high-powered job." Driver notes that many retirement jobs may not have the status and power that people were accustomed to in their former careers. He counsels mature job seekers to expect, for example, that younger people may supervise them in a new job. He also urges them not to overlook an opportunity just because it's different from their past experience. One of his site's corporate partners, Borders books may offer a good fit for those interested in literature, he says, even if they wouldn't normally gravitate toward a retail job.

taken care of wonderfully," said Hayman."But I wanted to do something that I could control."
Hayman is one of a swelling number of baby boomers -- those 76 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's definition -- who are jumping into the world of small-business ownership after leaving primary careers.
