Jumpstart On-Line

This is our new-in-2020 on-line basic obedience class. Each week, you will have several videos to watch on-line, which will enable you to start training your dog. The students and instructor will meet once a week for a class via the Zoom platform. Students will take turns working on a given exercise with feedback from the instructor. To participate in the class, you need the ability to sign in to a Zoom meeting and position a computer web-cam/tablet/smart phone so that the instructor can watch you and your dog working on the class exercises. Teach basic obedience commands (eye contact, come, sit, down, stay, loose-leash walking, leave it). Class focuses on basic control needed for everyday life with your dog and on basic problem solving, such as stopping your dog from jumping on people.

Prerequisites

No prior training required.

  Notes: Since we are unable to hold in-person training classes right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created an on-line version of our Jumpstart Obedience course. To participate in the class, you need the ability to sign in to a Zoom meeting and position a computer web-cam/tablet/smart phone so that the instructor can watch you and your dog working on the class exercises. You also need to be able to create an account on the Thinkific website, where the class videos are hosted.
Each week, you will have several videos to watch on-line, which will enable you to start training your dog. The students and instructor will meet once a week for a class via the Zoom platform. Students will take turns working on a given exercise with feedback from the instructor. This is a brand-new class offering! We need a minimum of 3 students to sign up to hold the class, and we will take a maximum of 6 students.

To ensure that you are ready for the Zoom meeting on the first night of class, please attend the orientation session:
Sunday November 29, 2020 at 1:00 PM.
You will receive an email with the details of the Zoom meeting after you sign up. The goal of the orientation session is to ensure that the instructor can see you and your dog in your training area, how it looks when the instructor puts you on "Spotlight", what it looks like when the instructor switches to a different person, and that you can mute and unmute yourself.

Once at least 3 people have signed up, you will receive an email from us with information about how to log into the Zoom orientation meeting, as well as the link to the actual class Zoom meeting.
