Training Made Easy From the Comfort of Your Home!

Meet with a Canine Learning Academy Certified Dog Trainer online to learn all the dog training tips, tricks, and techniques from the comfort of your own home. Sessions are held in a Zoom meeting. You will receive an easy to use link to access our sessions, no tech skills needed!

If you’d like to train on your own time, we have Self Study Courses available as well!

Online Private Coaching

We want to make your training program struggle-free. With Online Private Training sessions, simply login to our scheduled session from your laptop or smartphone! There is no doubt that the reduced distractions by working with your dog at home will accelerate their learning so that once you’re ready to test your skills in public, you’ll be able to confidently cue and even read your dogs body language.

During your Session, we are able to cover any dog training topic needed: from socializing your puppy, training a service animal, addressing reactive behavior to solving unwanted problem behaviors. You will receive explanations, demonstrations, answers to questions, and feedback for each exercise – just like you would in-person!

Consultation is the first step to Online Private Coaching!

Before we meet, you’ll complete a training consultation form online. The Dog Training Team will consult together and we schedule a 60-90 minute initial behavior consultation, where we discuss and review the history of your dog’s behavior and discuss possible strategies. We work together with you and discuss the best training protocol for your life and dog.  A consultation is mandatory prior to any training sessions. 

Additional private training sessions can be scheduled individually or as part of a package.  Online Video Consultation for many issues, will be done via video chat online, through Zoom. After consultation Online Training sessions can be done in combination with in-person sessions.  You’ll need a phone, tablet, laptop or computer with a webcam, as well as a decent internet connection and the selected software.

Online Group Training

Online Group Class is great for dogs who aren’t completely vaccinated or have a tough time in a class setting, whether they are scared or extremely excited of unfamiliar dogs or people this class is for you.

With our Online Group Training Class you get access to our training team to get personalized, small group, live video help you need to address a variety of dog training and behavior topics. Whether you have a puppy, adolescent, or adult dog you’ll be able to get your questions answered. Each class is recorded and can be watched at anytime.

Online classes using a live webinar format using Zoom where the Trainer(s) chats with you, shows high quality video breakdown of technical skills, introduces new topics with in-depth example for all learning styles, and gives step-by-step instructions for new and advancing training skills. Questions are discussed as a group.

While we absolutely love being hands-on and meeting with you and your pup in person for group class, online group training classes share many of the same features of a small group private session. Our certified dog trainer instructor demonstrates using their own dog or shows high quality- easy to follow videos that break down the behaviors. We then coach you how to teach new behaviors  to your own dog if you want to join in or just watch and practice later on on your own time, then submit video to our private Facebook Page to get feedback from our Dog Training Team.

There are so many advantages to online group training classes. We ideally should start teaching our dogs new skills in a low-distraction environment anyways, which is much easier to set up at home than in a pubic group class.

We use the platform Zoom to host our online group classes and Virtual Private Training Sessions. Zoom is really easy to use, but like anything new you will need to learn how to use the app and make it work best for you.

To Prepare:

  • Watch Zoom’s video on getting yourself set up. (Note: Zoom is free for you to use. Currently, the free version limits meeting times to 40 minutes. Since we have a paid subscription, we don’t have that time limit when we host a meeting and you don’t have to pay for Zoom.)
  • Use Zoom’s test feature to test your internet connection, video and audio ahead of the scheduled meeting time.
  • You’ll need a laptop, phone or tablet with a webcam, a decent internet connection and access to Zoom. A laptop or computer with a webcam is easiest, but a phone or tablet will work.
  • If using a smartphone or tablet, When you are doing lessons with your pup prop it up or use a tripod so you and your dog are in the frame.
  • Choose a well-lit, quiet location or put on a set of headphones.
  • If you want to practice with you pup. You will want to have a nice supply of dog treats and a hungry dog. You’ll want to have your dog’s leash handy, as well as any other items needed for your class exercises.
