Gentling exercises” enabling the owner to touch the puppy’s feet, ears, and tummy w/o a struggle in preparation for vet visits. Building a relationship with your puppy” where we discuss consistency, fairness, frequent very short training sessions, and always having a reward available for good behavior. Do not feed the puppy immediately before class and to refrain from much interaction with other puppies before class as getting them all “wound up” is not very conducive for learning. At the end of class, we will allow 5 to10 minutes of free play among the puppies as a reward for their work.

Our Virtual Dog Training Classes

With the pandemic making social interactions unsafe, we wanted to ensure dog owners could continue benefiting from our expertise in the safest way possible. This goal led us to design the Virtual Dog Training module, which could be taken from the comfort of your home and will help you train your dog without putting yourself at risk.

Our virtual COVID-free program offers objective-based training and aims at instilling the following skills in your beloved dog.

Discipline

First off, our program’s goal is to make your dog a disciplined one so you can have decorum both inside the house and outside it. We help them explore and expend their energy in physical activities without disrupting order and help them relieve their anxiety.

We instill obedience to ensure the dogs become accustomed to following the orders they are trained to listen to without offering resistance.

Basic Commands

The next and one of the most important parts of the program is training your dog to listen to basic commands like sit, stay, circle, drop, etc. The commands range from simple to more complex and are taught through a combination of techniques, like baiting and rewards, in line with the dogs’ personality types.

We will teach your dog a total number of 25+ commands to respond to in combination with behavioral skills to complete the package.

Behavior

Last but not least, the virtual dog training classes will help modify your dog’s behavior to make them more obedient and to teach them key responses to routine occurrences. We will teach them basic behavioral responses to several situations, some of which are as follows:

  • Stranger approaching and petting dog
  • Stranger with dog approaching owner to stop and say hello
  • Owner passing by a stranger with dog

We understand how important behavioral control and obedience are to dog owners in such situations and ensure the dogs are trained to behave obediently in such situations.
