Whether it's leash reactivity, anxiety or basic manners skills, your program will be tailored just for you. You'll train on your own schedule and submit video clips of practice sessions. I'll provide expert voice over video feedback, troubleshoot challenges, and update the plan based on your dog's progress. You get individualized attention that drives results without rigid scheduling. I'll be there to guide your success every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does virtual dog training work?You'll submit practice videos for my review. I'll provide voice over video feedback to identify areas to target, refine techniques, and adjust the plan based on your dog's progress. This interactive process builds your skills quickly through ongoing video review.
How much time does training take per week?I recommend 5 training days per week for optimal results. But you can adjust the frequency to match your schedule. Video submissions control the pace of new lesson releases. Consistency is important, but you pick the training times.
Can I switch between monthly plans?Absolutely! Since there are no long-term contracts, you can upgrade or downgrade your monthly memberships needed to match your goals and availability. You get the flexibility to adjust plans over time.
What type of support is included?Your training membership provides unlimited messaging Monday-Friday. You'll also receive voice over video feedback where I review footage in depth and adjust your training plan. You take a moment to review my video feedback when it works with your schedule and implement any changes made to your plan. Ongoing support is my priority.
What methods do you use to train dogs?My training philosophy relies on positive reinforcement and force-free techniques. I never use dominance or compulsion. My goals is to make training safe, effective, and fun using science-backed methods that strengthen the human-dog bond.
What types of issues do you have experience with?I have extensive experience with common to uncommon behavior problems like reactivity, separation anxiety, aggression, fearfulness, bite history, sound sensitivity, resource guarding and more. I've worked with thousands of dogs and owners and can customize a plan tailored for you and your pup's needs.
How does scheduling work?Training your dog shouldn’t conflict with your already busy life. No need to commit to a strict schedule, train when it’s convenient for you and get the dog behavior support you need when you need it. After we meet for the initial consultation, schedule your training practice sessions when it works best for you. Unlike traditional dog training, where you only see the trainer for one hour a couple times per month, you'll have access to support Monday through Friday,
How does pricing work?The Dog Lab offers monthly membership packages starting at $450. All memberships are month-to-month so you aren't locked in long-term. Pricing is based on your individual goals and needs - the more support you need, the higher the monthly fee.
How does payment work?You’ll subscribe to the monthly dog behavior coaching program for a flat monthly fee which is more cost effective that traditional in-home private lessons. You’ll have much more frequent access to a professional trainer for a flat monthly fee, instead of paying for my time by the hour. I accept all major credit cards, debit cards, Google Pay, Apple Pay and ACH bank transfer.
