FAQs about Virtual Dog Training Classes

Isn’t it better to train my dog around other dogs for socialization and distractions?

Socialization is a separate process from training behaviors you want your dog to do when you ask.  It’s important and fun for your dog, but doesn’t need to happen at the same time as training behaviors; it can even get in the way of learning new behaviors, as the dog can only be effectively learning one thing at a time. Work through socialization processes during your daily activities with your dog; we’ll guide you through that!

Distractions must be added at a rate that suits your dog.  It’s best to train new behaviors in a quiet, low-distraction environment where your dog can learn quickly, and then introduce individual distractions as he’s ready to handle them.  Training progresses much more quickly this way!

How can the trainer train my dog when we’re not even in the same building?

Shh!  Don’t tell anyone – the trainer was never training your dog anyway; you train the dog!  I get to coach you in 2 short sessions each week plus review your homework videos and coach you during our coaching calls; that’s 4 times a week when you get coaching.  Your skills will improve quickly and your dog will learn quickly as a result.

Our students are progressing much more rapidly in our virtual classes then they do in face-to-face classes.  Removing the stress of travel and the additional stressors of a new, exciting location with lots of other people and dogs helps humans and dogs feel confident and learn quickly!

Don’t we need a full hour of training class to learn what we need to know?

NO!  Those full hour classes include a lot of wasted time while dogs and humans lose focus, become distracted, and deal with assorted stress-related behaviors.  And then there’s the travel time, which some dogs aren’t ready for, adding to the stress.  Our twice weekly, 30-minute virtual classes have shown to be more productive than a single, hour-long, face-to-face class. Less time spent + more productive training =  more progress, faster!
