Virtual Dog Training - the Best Way to Get Your Dog Under Control

Nothing is more discouraging than failed training or money wasted on the dog trainer who was supposed to fix it all. The fact of the matter is that you need a solution that works.

Pet stores, parks, and boarding facilities are all fundamentally flawed for dog training.  They all contain new smells, distractions, and visual stimuli.  It’s no wonder your dog can’t focus.

But if you bring a trainer into your home to teach your dog, now your dog has to acclimate to a new person which can cause excitement, anxiety, aggression, or a mixture of these emotions - all of which are not ideal states of mind to be in for learning.

In home virtual dog training doesn't come with such flaws. It’s you who’s training your dog in the comfort of your home, lead by one of our experts. In the end, you will be the one who’s in control of your dog - for good.

You are the Authority

If you let someone else train your dog for you, your dog will learn to respect and listen to that person - and not you.

All the behavior problems will come back right after the training ends. With our proven method, you're the one taking the reins.

Recorded Live Trainings

Having trouble remembering what your trainer taught you? We record all your trainings with us. This way you can watch them again whenever you want, however you want!

But we don't stop there. When working with us, you can reach out to your personal trainer anytime with all additional questions you might have.

What no one else tells you about dog training

Why proper pack behavior equals proper manners

Our Dogtastic FAQ section - in plain Human Language

How can I sign up?

To enroll in one of our training courses, please schedule a free consultation. The consultation gives us a chance to learn a bit more about your situation with your dog and what your training goals are. We will then make a suggestion for the training program that best fits your needs. You can start meeting with your personal dog trainer as soon as the next day in many cases.

Do the trainers come to the house in person?........................

No, all training happens virtually through Zoom or FaceTime. Your dog is so accustomed to technology that it won’t bat an eye at a talking phone or laptop, providing us the ability to see how your dog acts without our presence causing distraction. This approach allows us to model techniques and correct your form while providing you the biggest advantage: Your dog is learning from YOU. This means that you are earning your dog’s respect and you are learning the skills you need to create permanent results in your dog’s training.

Why In-Home Dog Training with the trainer visiting in person is not ideal:

  • Valuable time is wasted each session letting your dog acclimate to the trainer’s presence
  • Your dog may experience anxiety, fear, or aggression with a stranger in your home
  • Your dog may learn to respect the trainer  - but not you!
  • The training may regress once the trainer is no longer coming over to reinforce the skills
Do you offer boarding and training or training bootcamps?

No, we believe that separating the dog from the owner for training is the wrong approach and can be a costly mistake for two main reasons: Your dog’s temperament plays a vital role in what effect being completely severed from you, its home or den, and all things familiar will have: Some dogs are completely traumatized by the experience - even despite the attentive care of the trainer. Your dog may be kept in a crate for extended periods of time when not actively training and, as a result, may become depressed and stop eating. The other major issue with boarding and training is the fact that you, the owner, are not involved in the training. When the dog listens to the trainer, will that mean the dog will listen to you? Your dog may very well learn to respect the trainer, but unless the dog learns to also respect you, the obedience will never transfer to you and all gains made during “bootcamp” will soon be lost.

Why boarding and training is not ideal:

  • Your dog may not react well to being taken away from his home and human family
  • Your dog may be isolated or in a crate for extended lengths of time, causing depression and loss of appetite
  • Dogs learn best in familiar environments with familiar people, both of which aren’t present while boarding
  • The training may regress unless you learn how to reinforce the skills yourself
I have a citation from animal control/ a court order for my dog. Can you help?

Yes, we have handled many court cases before and we can provide you with all the necessary documentation.

Will this kind of training work for serious behavior issues like aggression?

When you are dealing with serious behavior issues like aggression and or destructive behaviors, it is especially important that you become an unquestioned authority in your dog’s eyes. To establish this role, you must educate your dog in its native language. We’ve developed a program that, through teaching you professional dog handling techniques, allows you to establish yourself as superior to your dog in the pack hierarchy. Your dog will begin to defer to your judgment in all of its decisions. This this frees your dog of worries about the safety of your pack and relieves it of the burden of making its own decisions - a state your dog will prefer.

Wondering dog
I have tried other training programs but nothing has worked. Is there any hope?

Pet stores, parks, and boarding facilities are all fundamentally flawed for dog training. They all contain new smells, distractions, and visual stimuli. It’s no wonder your dog can’t focus. Even if you bring a trainer into your home to teach your dog, now your dog has to acclimate to a new person in its den which can cause excitement, anxiety, aggression, or a mixture of these emotions—all of which are not ideal states of mind to be in for learning. You must be an unquestioned authority in your dog’s eyes. To establish this role, you must educate your dog in its native language. We’ve developed a program that, through teaching you proper dog handling techniques, allows you to establish yourself as superior to your dog in the pack hierarchy. Your dog will begin to defer to your judgment in all of its decisions. Not only will your dog understand what you want, but you will also receive 100% compliance. You should not have to say sit five times before your dog complies nor should your dog get back up before you give permission.

Can I switch to a different course?

Yes, our training programs are structured to allow you to easily upgrade to the next level of training once you are finished with your current course. To move on to the next level in training, you only have to pay the difference in price between the training courses.

What is the time commitment? How long does the training take?

You will meet with your trainer 2-3 times per week depending on your availability. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule - evening and weekend sessions are available. The training sessions are about an hour long. In addition, you should plan in about 30 minutes each day for “homework” to practice with your dog dog in between training sessions.The Proper Pack Behavior training course, which is the foundation for all other training programs, typically takes about 5-6 weeks to complete. But you should see a significant improvement in your dog’s behavior after just a handful of sessions.

Do you offer any discounts?

Yes, we offer military and first responder discounts. Please contact us for details.

Jamil

Our dog had been showing signs of aggression and would absolutely attack our front door whenever a delivery driver would come to our house. We finally realized that we had to stop ignoring the problems and looked to Sam Ivy for help.

We were certainly skeptical about the Zoom training formats, WE WERE COMPLETELY WRONG. Our dog is a completely different pup now. He listens, doesn't try to attack dogs on walks, and he quietly sits as delivery drivers come to our door.

I am so happy with Sam Ivy K9 Consultants and our trainer Maribel. I enrolled in the virtual proper pack course and I wished I would have done this so much sooner!

I loved the flexibility of the zoom classes. You have to be willing to put in the work, but my dog seems so much happier with structure in his life. Thank you Samy Ivy!
