Benefits of Virtual Training:

  • We’re able to observe your dog in its natural environment

  • Every virtual training session is recorded and e-mailed to you, so that you can review the lesson as many times as you wish. Being able to access the lesson multiple times is a major advantage that will allow your dog to progress more quickly!

  • We tailor each session for you and your dog. We assign weekly homework, specifically customized for your dog’s needs.

  • We provide easy-to-follow instructions and guidance in the form of e-mails, videos, and downloadable PDF’s. 

  • You have access to the Club DSS Methodology (fun, , effective, and always dog-friendly) wherever you live in the United States. All you need is the right equipment!

  • Virtual training lessons are affordable and easy on the budget.

  • Virtual training offers flexibility! We do our best to schedule sessions when they’re most convenient for you. Lessons may be scheduled once or twice per week, at a time that best suits your schedule. 

The initial 60-minute behavior evaluation/assessment gives us the opportunity to learn more about you and your dog(s), and to fully understand your training objectives. 

During the evaluation, we’ll gather input from you and your family, and take a complete behavior/health history, so that we can recommend the best, most appropriate training package for you and your dog(s).

We’ll also explain our virtual training program to you, make sure you have the necessary equipment/tools, and that you’re comfortable using these tools to engage in virtual training.

The evaluation fee is $79 for one dog; each additional dog that requires training is $25. 

Behavior concerns, including, but not limited to: separation anxiety, aggression, fear, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and general reactivity (on or off leash), require a more comprehensive evaluation (two hours).
