If you ever have ever felt overwhelmed on where to start training a new behavior or how to troubleshoot an existing one then private coaching is a great option!
Topics are of your choice and can be on anything from obedience and agility to tricks and service dog behaviors!
Private coaching can also be setup as a regular “check in” to get feedback on how behaviors are progressing. People often find that having an experienced trainer guide you through your goals is a great way to hold yourself accountable for training sessions.
Generally I find that we can cover a lot more information in less time with online privates versus in person privates as you are not “on the clock” when you’re trying to process feedback and we don’t have to worry about exhausting your dog with a full hour of work in one sitting!
How Does it Work?
You can ask me as many questions as you want as well as submit video of your training sessions for me to watch.
You get my feedback in written form so you can actually remember my suggestions and even reread them as often as you need to!
You can also compare my notes to the exact second of video that I am referring to, how cool is that?! This allows you to actually see what you are physically doing, how the dog is responding, and receive help in getting your training clear and efficient.
Training can thus be done in the privacy of your own home or yard!
This coaching service can be set up through a private Facebook group or through email.
Feedback is not done “live” at a set time but is a back and forth exchange. I will keep track of my time spent on responses and will let you know when your hour(s) are up. All you need to do is send me your questions and any video clips of your training you want me to watch!
All you need to submit videos is the camera on your phone, a tripod (yes they make tripods for phones now!) or a way to prop it up, and then a quick upload to youtube!
If you are a bit intimidated by the prospect of taking video and submitting it for review, please email me and I will walk you through a pain free way to start!
The number of students I coach at one time is limited and I charge $70/hr.
Priority for open spots are given to students who have enrolled in FDSA online classes or are current local students as this allows us to have a common “language” of training methods right off the bat.
You can email me at email@example.com to ask your questions!
Tell me what you are struggling with and I will give you my recommendations on how to fix it!
