Virtual Dog Training Classes Better than In-Person Classes, Pandemic or Not | State

HOUSTON, May 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Live Virtual Dog Training Classes are helping dog lovers train their positive reinforcement pets at home with coaching from an industry expert. Virtual classes were a required linchpin during the COVID-19 pandemic and the students are so successful with their dogs that The Mannerly Dog will continue them for the foreseeable future. Owner Nancy Kelly, CPDT-KA says: “We have satisfied dog and cat owners from Canada, four US states and everywhere Texas during the pandemic. We offer personal support like a local business but are available to pet owners everywhere. “

It is a myth that novice dogs and their owners should gather in a crowded, unfamiliar room to socialize while learning obedience skills. In too many cases, dogs are stressed because of the strange place and the unknown people. Owners try to follow the teacher’s instructions by barking, while their dogs hide under chairs or jump on people. All of this after a trip in the car that may have made your new dog uncomfortable or in need of cleaning. One hour of class and travel time plus loading and unloading can take a whole evening.

Many services have become virtual; Dog training has proven to be even more effective in this format. Dogs unwilling to travel comfortably in the car don’t have to. Classes are at home where live lessons are given by an expert. A calm, controlled environment helps dogs and people learn. Students choose their home training area. Classes include instructions for practicing skills in other locations once the dog has learned them.

As an added bonus, cats are now enrolled in virtual classes with the dogs – impossible with face-to-face classes. Cat owners successfully train their cats to walk on a leash and leave them alone during dinner, which gives them mental stimulation that increases their quality of life.

A student who previously trained in The Mannerly Dog’s face-to-face class was delighted with her success in the virtual class. A colleague from dog training said, “How can the students fail to excel with the amazing level of support?” The switch to virtual live classes was a sheer success for the students and their dogs and cats.
