In-home sessions are currently postponed until May 15th. 

Your dog’s training classification will be  finalized  during their evaluation. This determines which type of sessions your dog will require from the categories below. Classification is subject to change due to progress or regression. Private training sessions are done in your home or virtually via Zoom and include a custom training plan, owner coaching, guidance for training between sessions, and updates to the training plan as your dog progresses. Group courses will be listed below by topic and available dates. Rates in menu below are cash discount rates.

Virtual Training Sessions

Introducing WHC's New Virtual Training Sessions!

Virtual Training Sessions are now available with Wholehearted Canine! Beginning March 21st, you can request a Virtual Session via Zoom for private training lessons. Zoom accounts are free and can be used from your computer or smartphone. Virtual Training Sessions are not suitable for all dogs and requests will be considered on a case by case basis. In-person evaluation sessions for new clients are required whenever possible instead of virtual evaluations. 

To allow for social distancing,  in-person sessions are currently postponed until May 15th. Virtual Training Sessions are an official new service with Wholehearted Canine and will continue to be offered from now on regardless of public health concerns. 

Training games and exercises will each be demonstrated either by sharing video clips or live with my own dogs on the video call. You will then repeat each game or exercise with your dog, make any changes as needed with coaching from me, and can ask questions about each as usual. A supplies list will be sent to you in advance to help you prepare for each session, and your lesson sheet will be sent to you by email before we begin.

Virtual Training Sessions are also a wonderful fit for those who are outside of Wholehearted Canine’s travel range, or families for whom travel fees are cost prohibitive for private training. Virtual Session rates have been added to the services page at  Payment for Virtual Sessions is required to be made through Paypal, Zelle, or Venmo, and credit card, physical cash or check payment will not be accepted. 

I’m looking forward to exploring new training possibilities with you through Virtual Sessions! Please call or text (214) 307-2635 with any questions or scheduling requests. Happy Training!
