Am I being dishonest if I sell an ebook I'm not an expert in

I would like anyones input. I hired a writer to write my ebook. It's great, but the problem is I'm not the expert in the field. I've researched the topic and I understand it.

But I'm not an actual "Dog Trainer". So how can I get people to listen to what I'm saying. Without saying, "I'm a dog trainer for 20 years. I've trained over hundreds of dogs and helped dog owners train their dogs into champions..."

Making money selling the ebook would be great. But what I'm more interested in is actually helping people without being dishonest. So how can I rewrite the ebook to still sound like an expert?

What are your thoughts?

Perhaps just consider yourself an afficionado, enthusiast, someone who appreciates or has seen the need for and benefits of a well trained dog. If only you had access the information you now present...your dogs would have been much happier and better companions etc..

I have a site showing women how to get their ex-boyfriend back. As a guy, I'm clearly no expert on the subject. I just say that "I enjoy helping women with relationship advice and helping them fix problems they experience relating with men."

Just say something like "I've loved dogs since I was a kid and I enjoy helping others train their dogs and solve problem behaviors." It is not a lie, mostly because you do enjoy helping them (if for no other reason than you're making money from doing so).

Clayton's reply is great. You don't need to say that you are the super dog expert. You can be your customer's friend and adviser.

Spot on Earl,
You are a "Dog Training Enthusiast" or "Dog Training Aficionado" who loves giving good advice to other Dog lovers.

:)

Thank you Earl and Clayton for your input. You've really helped me out. I'm having my writer rewrite it as an enthusiast who enjoys helping others. Thanks again guys! :)
