Exploring the Benefits of On-line Training
Virtual training creates a safe and comfortable space for dogs to learn and grow and offers several advantages that are beneficial for reactive dogs:
Familiar Environment: Virtual training allows your dog to participate in sessions from the comfort of their own home or a familiar environment. This can significantly reduce stress and anxiety levels, promoting a more receptive and focused learning experience.
Reduced Distractions: Reactive dogs often struggle to concentrate in new or crowded environments. Virtual training minimizes distractions, ensuring that your dog can concentrate solely on the training tasks at hand.
Flexibility: Virtual training offers flexibility in scheduling sessions. This is particularly advantageous for dogs with anxiety, as it allows me to tailor the program to their specific needs, providing ample time for them to adapt and progress at their own pace.
Customized Approach: I understand that fearful dogs require a
sensitive approach. Virtual training sessions allow me to
observe your dog's behaviour
closely and develop a training plan
that suits their individual needs.
Reduced Stress: Traditional training
environments may inadvertently add stress
to fearful dogs, hindering their progress.
Virtual training eliminates the pressure of a
trainer's presence in the learning
environment, creating a stress-free
atmosphere that encourages gradual
Safety: For dogs with fear-based
aggression, virtual training offers
a safer alternative. By
remotely, we can work on
without putting your dog or
others at risk.
Increased Confidence: As
your dog learns and improves
within the comfort of their
familiar surroundings, their
confidence will grow. This
newfound self-assurance can
help them face their fears more
effectively in real-life situations.
When the Trainer Presents a
Distraction: There are times when
having the trainer present in the
learning environment can increase stress for
the dog. In-person training sessions can be
over-whelming for dogs with anxiety or fear of
strangers, leading to unproductive and potentially
counterproductive outcomes. With virtual training,
we avoid this added stress and work towards the
ultimate goal of helping your dog lead a happier and
more confident life.
