To make our services more available, The Talking Dog now offers Interactive Remote Herding Training Sessions. With each one-hour session, you’ll be able to:

  • Submit video of training with your dog
  • Receive written feedback and advice on the video
  • Discuss the video and feedback in person during an online meetup (offered on a variety of platforms to give you options you’re comfortable with)

Remote herding lessons must be scheduled, and your video uploaded, at least 5 days in advance of your session.  Each session will focus on the training of one dog.

What’s required of you:

  1. Consider your goals.  When you book your session, you’ll be asked to provide some context, including your experience, goals, current training challenges etc.  How are we going to help you?
  2. Book your session.  Sessions are $85 USD and include the review of up to 15 minutes of video, note-making and the balance of the time in a live web session with you.
  3. Upload your video as you book, or watch for your confirmation email and follow the link to upload your video later.
  4. Show, don’t tell.  Take video of your dog in training; you can upload up to 3 videos, up to 15 minutes total.
  5. Can’t make your appointment?  You can reschedule up to 48 hours in advance.  Cancellations are not available.

Some examples of what’s discussed in a web session:

  • Evaluation of your current training level and any issue you are having with your dog
  • Your expectation for your dog and how you have planned to meet those expectations
  • Goals for next training session
