Here’s how training with me on a one to one basis over Zoom could be great for you and your dog.
Most people assume that to be able to train their dog to walk nicely on the lead, have great recall, not lunge at other dogs or bikes or work with other behaviour problems they need to take their dog to training classes or find a trainer who will work them on a one to one basis in person.
In person training is great for some dogs and their people. But Zoom video sessions can work just as well and for some dogs and their people can be more beneficial.
As a one to one trainer I always tell people “all learning starts at home, in a safe, relaxed environment with no distractions, giving your dog the best opportunity for success”.
Training over Zoom fits this perfectly. It wasn’t until the first Covid lockdown when we were forced to work remotely that I discovered just how effective remote training over Zoom could be and how much dogs and their people can benefit.
Put yourself in your dog’s place. If you were trying to learn a new skill could you do that in a distracting environment or with a strange person suddenly appearing? Some dogs are fearful around strangers. Some are giddy with excitement and struggle to calm.
Training with me one to one over Zoom means we don’t waste time at the beginning of our training sessions calming your dog down when I arrive, or you putting the kettle on and making me a cuppa.
You can train with me over Zoom either on a one to one basis, or join one of my Zoom group training classes.
In a Zoom group training class you and your dog can learn new skills in a familiar, non distracting environment.
Joining a Zoom group class means you don’t have to travel, so many dogs find travelling in the car stressful and arrive at classes already feeling overwhelmed.
If you have a young dog or a dog that struggles around other dogs a Zoom training class gives your dog the BEST start to learning by setting your dog up for success. It makes it a lot less stressful for your dog and a lot less stress for you.
Training your dog over Zoom is brilliant for teaching those really important foundation skills.
It provides you and your dog the perfect environment for learning to take place.
