FAQs:

  • I want someone to train my dog for me, will you do that?

    For many years we followed the ‘traditional’ training model where we physically handled and trained clients dogs. The problem with this is that the second the dog goes back to the guardian everything falls apart. Good modern dog training focuses on empowering the guardian with the skills, knowledge, and actionable plan needed to best train and care for their beloved dogs themselves.

  • But don’t you have to see my dog to be able to train them?

    Actually, no! Dog training is really just human training: teaching guardians how to bring about behavior change in their canine companions. We focus on showing you - the guardian and caregiver - how to understand and communicate with your dog. Results from our hundreds of clients worldwide have shown that you can provide all the information, coaching, and support needed to affect behavior change through digital services.

  • What about outdoor behavior problems like leash walking, reactivity, and excitement?

    All learning should begin in low distraction environments, where the dog and human can be focussed and responsive. Some clients then choose to take their sessions outside on their phones, but most will then video themselves practicing their exercises in increasingly distracting environments and access trainer feedback via the Trainer In Your Pocket service.
