VIDEO CALL SESSION
Video call can be a great format for many types of dog training, including behavioral rehabilitation. PHD will help you reach your goals through personalized instruction delivered to your device with internet access and a camera and microphone.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After your session is reserved, PHD will send you an email with a link to your private video call room. Simply click that link at session time. We recommend that you click the link 10 minutes early so that you are ready to go at session time. Call or text PHD if you have any technology issue or question.
Your instructor will conduct an assessment and help you identify training goals. During session, you will learn you dog training theory, skills and techniques, as well as behavioral modification interventions chosen specifically for your dog. The instructor will coach you as you try out what you have learned.
Between sessions, students complete homework assignments using the PHD Learning Portal , which has written and video resources for study.
PREPARE FOR YOUR SESSION
Send PHD an email with three lists: a) the behaviors in your dog that are problematic or could otherwise improve; b) your goals for training; c) the things your dog does well (his or her strengths).
If possible, send PHD video of: a) and c) above. You can record your video with your cell phone, for example, and send it by email or text message to PHD. Please limit the length of each video to 5 min. or less. Please don't send more than 20 minutes of video per scheduled session.
