Pre-Beginners: Zoom

If you cannot make in-person classes, Zoom is a fantastic alternative to in-person classes! Zoom allows you to learn all the same important information from the comfort of your own home. This means no travel times and your puppy will have the benefit of no tricky distractions to work around.

Zoom classes allow me to see your dog working in their natural environment also. Sometimes we can find puppies act differently in a class setting. This is a great option for anxious puppies or those who cannot attend due to childcare restrictions etc. On Zoom, the whole family can get involved and you can join in from day 1 your puppy comes home - no need to wait for vaccines! Puppy training is much more than meeting other dogs and we will talk about how you can apply your Zoom training to your day to day life and walks. 

6 week course: £60

Beginners Dog Training: Zoom

Our Zoom beginners class covers ALL the same content as our in-person course but is a perfect alternative for anxious/shy dogs who would struggle with the class setting. This is also a great option for reactive dogs. 

For owners who cannot travel to the venue, would find it more comfortable working from home or have childcare restirctions, Zoom can be the perfect option for you. You will recieve live demo's of all the exercises, feedback whilst you work, time for Q&A at the end and if you miss a session, you will recieve a full recording of the session to watch back in your own time. You will also recieve the weekly summary emails just like the in-person sessions. 

Many young dogs find class settings incredibly distracting. It may be that a Zoom course to learn the basics is the best option for some dogs who are not quite ready for a group class situation.

Courses on Zoom are slighly shorter at 6 weeks but all content is still covered.

Intermediate Dog Training: Zoom

The Intermediate Zoom class is modifed slightly from our in-person class but will still cover many of the same things as the In-person class (minus the distraction element). This is a good intermediate between the beginners & the in-person intermediate class as it works around a lower level of distractions in your home. During the current COVID-19 Pandemic, Zoom Intermediate class is still available however it is likely this will return to in-person only in the future, depending on the demand.
