We will use Zoom for our session.
Virtual training will consist of:
- Discussion, I will ask a lot of questions to make sure I understand all the details about your dogs behavior.
- Training, I will have you turn your computer or phone so I can see you and your dog. I will then give you specific instructions for training and coach you as you train your dog.
- Homework, I will email written explanations and videos for you to reference so you can be implementing the training I show you into your everyday life.
What my clients are saying about virtual training:
“Rachel’s virtual training has been absolutely incredible for Iggy and I!! Iggy is a super reactive 5 year old Pittie mix, and I wanted to find a trainer who understood what we were going through and could help with Iggy’s struggles. Rachel’s help has also been invaluable with helping me deal with the anxiety of being a reactive dog mom, and helping me understand what Iggy goes through on a daily basis. In addition to that, virtual sessions have been even more helpful to us then in person (not to mention way more affordable!), and I can’t wait to take the Reactivity Redefined course and make even more progress with Iggy ❤️”
-Brie and Iggy
-Julie and Rex
“Recently I had a virtual 30 minute refresher to work on a new behavior that had come up. Rex was barking in the car on the way to exercise. This barking behavior, was causing me a lot of stress, which in turn led me to act in a frustrated manner with Rex. On a skype call Rachel reminded me of the sit and wait technique and practice runs in the car, all to illicit calm behavior. I was astounded that after one practice, Rex only barked once on the way to the dog park. From that point on I decided to do a a monthly virtual refresher session. I highly recommend working in any capacity you can manage with Rachel but if time or money is an issue the virtual route works!!! She is truly gifted and has changed my life. “
