On Line Dog Training Classes and Virtual Private Training

Scroll down to see all of our on line puppy and dog training options. All classes will provide the opportunity for video submissions and instructor feedback. Classes are 4 weeks of lessons, an initial Zoom meeting, plus a 2 week Zoom check in. Zoom is an easy way to have an online meeting using your computer, phone, or tablet.  I’ll be glad to walk you through the initial setup if you’ve never done video conferencing before.

 

Control Unleashed®:  Reactive to Relaxed

Do you have a dog who loses her mind at the sight of another dog (or squirrel, leaf, UPS guy)?  Is your dog easily distracted or uncomfortable around other dogs or in busy situations?  Do you want a dog who can happily acknowledge distractions and then focus on you?  This is your class!  Control Unleashed® is suitable for both performance dogs and canine companions.

Classes will begin on Thursday, November 12 at 7:30pm on Zoom. (4 weeks)

On a Pedestal

Are you looking for a way to be more clear and precise when teaching your dog new behaviors or tweaking old ones?  Looking for a way your dog can let you know when he’s ready to work?

Platform training is for you!

You will learn foundation skills for using platforms in training, then go on to learn advanced applications. You’ll need a sturdy platform for your dog (Cato board, Klimb, or homemade are all fine) and plenty of treats.

Class size is limited to 5 in a private Facebook group where you can post videos and ask questions.  We’ll also have two scheduled Zoom meetings, with more if needed.  Class will meet for four weeks, with an advanced class to follow immediately.
