Remote Dog Training
While we would love to come and meet your dog in person, that is not always possible. Our trainers are passionate about offering services to all dogs and our virtual dog training allows us to reach Canadian clients who live outside our trainers’ service areas.
We also have found that remote training can be an effective tool for dogs who may be dealing with more severe behavioural issues and are uncomfortable with us entering their home. Whatever the situation, we would like to offer our support!
What We Can Help With
With methods rooted in communication and respect, we help our clients translate their behavioural expectations into a language their dog understands. Working together virtually, our online dog training programs can cover:
- Puppy training
- General obedience
- Helping a new rescue dog settle into their new home
- Behavioural dog training, including:
- Canine separation anxiety
- Aggression towards both dogs and/or humans
- Excessive or intimidating barking
- Nervousness or a lack of confidence around other dogs
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders
Our Training Sessions
Our training programs are personalized and catered to meet the unique needs of each household. Using video-sharing tools, we get to know both you and your dog and learn about your environment. We also spend time talking about your lifestyle and any behavioural expectations before developing a virtual training program and plan.
Our Training Methods
Our methodology recognizes the power that positive reinforcement has in forming bonds and building trust between you and your dog. Our approach respects that canines are pack animals and interact differently from humans. They connect with those around them using body language and subtle verbal communication.
Using video-sharing tools, we’ll show you how to affirm your leadership role and help you communicate with your dog in a way that’s natural to them. You will also learn to pick up on their signals so that you can form a stronger bond.
