Group coaching FAQ
Why online group coaching?
Online coaching? For dog training? YES! Did you know that online group coaching can be MORE effective than in-person classes? It’s true! For most dogs, starting out in high-distraction environments like a class setting is too challenging! With online coaching, we’re able to set your dog up for success so you can train where it’s easiest for them and for you to learn! It also requires that you do 100% of the hands-on work with your dog. And more hands-on work with your dog means YOU get more practice and learn more! In order to see long term success, you have to understand how to implement the training techniques when your trainer isn’t around. That’s why we at Dream Dog Academy created Group Coaching Classes that go beyond the basic skills, to give you the hands-on experience and knowledge necessary for long term success!
Don’t you need to see how my dog behaves in-person?
Nope! We can gather a ton of information just by watching you in your own environment. In fact, it can actually give us a BETTER picture of how your dog behaves in day-to-day life when it’s just you and them without us present. And for many dogs (and people), in-person group settings can be too distracting to focus and learn. With our online group coaching programs, you’ll be able to work with your dog in the environment where they will be most successful while still getting the benefits of group learning! This means that you may be working in one type of location while another team is working in a different one, and that’s ok! Our goal is to give you the tools necessary so that you are able to adjust training for whatever level your dog is at.
How will I know if I’m training correctly?
We got you! We will be doing lots of live coaching with feedback and video reviews together, so each team can learn from one another. You’ll also receive weekly video homework assignments. These short video submissions allow us to provide individualized feedback to keep you and your pup on the path to success in between classes!
What if I need extra support?
No problem! All of our Group Coaching Classes include one 60 min in-person, private coaching lesson where we will focus on addressing any needs that are unique to you and your pup!
