When training your dog online, there's no place like home and no better trainer than you.
Training in your dog’s home environment without new smells and distractions is proven to drive faster long-term results.
For fearful, aggressive or shy dogs, virtual training can be a lot less frightening than an unfamiliar environment with unknown people and dogs. By training in your dog’s “safe space”, you are making the process less overwhelming for them (and you!)
Anywhere, Anytime Support
With our 24/7 messaging support, you’ll get experts on call to help calm any puppy blues and/or analyze your training progress. Why wait between sessions when you can get the support you need daily.
If you are not satisfied with the dog’s progress after the program, we will give you your money back* OR continue to train with you for 4 more weeks free of cost.
Get Ahead of the Problem
With virtual, you can start as early as 8-weeks (instead of the typical 16), ensuring that your dog is beginning training during their prime weeks of learning and development.
Get the Family Involved
Don’t let schedules get in the way of everyone training. With virtual calls and an extensive video library, the whole family can get involved wherever they are.
