WE ARE NOW ABLE TO OFFER YOU A WEATHER PROOF AND COVID PROOF EXPERIENCE.
PUPPY TRAINING WILL BE A MIX OF OUTDOOR PARK SESSIONS (N9 9LA) AND ONLINE SESSIONS.
We have had great fun running our virtual coaching. It has had so many advantages. Puppies more able to concentrate, owners more comfortable. The results were aparent on our eventual return to the park, with many of the puppies more confident and focussed. I have been glad of the opportunity to embrace online coaching. So even though we will have loads of fun face to face in the park too, we have this option to expand what we can offer and to be able to offer more, and we will NEVER need to cancel a class.
Here is what I’ve noticed about online coaching:
We are able to look at calming and enrichment techniques that aren’t as easy to practice outside or in more distracting environments.
These techniques can be practiced by you at home in the very location you have had professional help to set up in and where you have been coached.
Now, no matter what the weather, or the current Covid situation we can still get together face to face, train have fun and share support and experiences.
- Online coaching allows us to bring to life video content and handouts, bringing clarity and helping you individually.
When joining the school, all lessons will be recorded and up-loaded to your group's own Puppy School Curriculum.
From here you will be able to access your recorded lesson, lesson handouts, links to videos and other useful handouts. You will also find a link to your Closed Facebook Group where you are invited to share your own recorded training videos, and questions.
Each week you will be sent a link just like the one below:

Click on the link and it will open Zoom up on your laptop, tablet or chosen screen. You will enter the waiting room of our virtual training location and as always, I will be there, ready to coach you through.
Set your screen up so that it is not directly in front of a window as that will make it difficult for me to see you and just check that it is positioned so I can see you and your dog and some space around you. If you would like some help setting this all up just let me know and I will jump on whatsapp or zoom and we can sort it out before Saturday for you so you are all ready to go.
Have your sound on mute. If you need to grab my attention wave at the camera and we can un-mute you so you can ask your question. Have your treats to hand as usual. Some in your treat pouch/or pocket and some in a container close by so that you can keep your "live" training treats topped up for repetitions. Set a bed up and a bowl of water for your puppy and have space around you to work in.
We will have time at the end of the lesson for you to ask any questions. If you would like 121 help then please feel free to whatsapp me. For general questions or things that the whole group might benefit from you will be very welcome to post in your FB Group.
As always I am there for you on Whatsapp, a trainer in your pocket for feedback and private coaching or assistance.
