As the Covid-19 situation continues to develop, in person dog training classes are still being put on hold for everyone's safety. However, our instructors have made our group training classes into ONLINE training classes you can do at home with your dog!
HOW WILL IT WORK?
We will run an online class through a private Facebook group, run by your instructor.
Each week your instructor will post the material for that week along with the exercises you can complete for homework.
You will then work on the exercises with your dog, and can post video for review each week, and will get personalized feedback from the instructor. Footage doesn't have to be perfect - rough training videos sent from phones is just fine! The instructors will check the group for posts at least twice a day.
WHAT WILL YOU NEED:
A Facebook account - You must have a facebook account to participate in these online classes as they are run via facebook groups. If you are worried about facebook privacy, consider making a facebook account using your dog's name instead.
No Special Equipment: All exercises are designed to be able to be done with items in or around your home, or out while walking your dog! We've been very creative and tested it all with our own dogs. You may wish to add some items to your dog training equipment, but they will not be required in order to pass this course.
Small Space: Exercises can be done inside or outside on a walk! Some exercises will require a bit of space, but they can be done on-leash outside if you need more room!
Cost is only $125+gst!
The course will run for 7 weeks. 6 weeks of material, plus 1 catch up week at the end.
You will have additional time to access the group and lessons after the 7 weeks are up.

AFTER THE COURSE:
As long as you complete 80% of the assignments, you will have completed the course and it will count the same as if you completed the group class in-person!
You will also have the option of future in-person private sessions, as we'll already have seen you and your dog work via video and can provide even more effective training time!
(Please note: completing an online group class will not waive the pre-requisite for in-person Agility group classes)
