The courses have short, easy to watch video lessons, plus informative handouts. They are self-paced and you can take as much time as you need to practice the skills in each lesson.
We recommend doing one or two lessons per week. You want you and your dog to learn them well and feel comfortable before moving on.
These online courses utilize discussions, lectures, videos, photos, slides, and written material. You will have ample opportunity for asking questions and learning through feedback.
You will receive unlimited email support and coaching for 6 months after you register and a generous number of phone consults that we schedule at your convenience. You can also post your questions and progress through the discussion boards after most topics.
You will need a computer or laptop with a good internet connection. While not ideal, a smartphone can be used. If you can read this, you are most likely fine!
Typically, over time, most dogs will show a lot of improvement, and some dogs will even exhibit dramatic improvement, but it takes time to affect behavior change.
Improvement is also contingent on how consistently you work with your dog as well as how long the problem has been happening and the seriousness of it.
All dogs are different so it would be unrealistic to make predictions or guarantees. However, we have helped hundreds of dogs with different issues including the one you’re concerned about and our goal is to help you with yours.
Our main goal is your success. The course material is very thorough and the lessons are straightforward. In addition, since the courses come with unlimited email support for 6 months, generous phone support for 3 months, and discussion boards, you have ample opportunities to get your questions answered.
If you need more personalized help, you can purchase a virtual online consultation where we can work with you face-to-face in real time. This is at a vastly reduced rate from what you might pay a behavior professional knowledgeable in these advanced topics. (Enrolled students get a special reduced rate that’s even lower than that of our regular rates too!)
