Our Dog Training Distance Coaching Program is Starting to Gain Steam!
Posted on February 7th, 2020 by FetchMasters in Uncategorized
Creating our distance coaching dog training program has been challenging but rewarding. We are getting progressively better at guiding people into the solutions for their dog’s behavior problems without actually being in their homes. And, each case we do results in customized training plans and tutorials that can be used for the next client with similar issues. It’s turning into a dog training option we are very proud of.
Pet Dog Training for Now, Gun Dog Training Coming Soon!
While the program currently is aimed at pet dog training, we are beginning the process of transferring our substantial library of videos, podcasts and tutorials from our online Positive Gun Dog Training Pro group over to the new FetchMasters Distance Coaching Program as well. So, the FetchMasters Positive Gun Dog Training Program is about to be a viable Distance Coaching option.
The Kinds of Things We are Helping With via Distance Coaching
To give you a feel for some of the stuff we are doing via distance coaching, here are a couple brief highlights.
German Shorthaired Pointer Off-Leash Reliability Work
We are working with a woman in Oregon who has a field-bred German Shorthaired Pointer. She is a very active, outdoor lady, and she wants her GSP to be her companion in Oregon’s great outdoors. Problem is, this is some wild country, and a GSP can quickly get out of control or lost in it.
So, we’ve given her one-on-one guidance to get her dog’s obedience skills progressing to a more usable level, and we currently are formalizing a training plan for her, which she will focus on over the next month or so.
She already is seeing some good progress, and several times we have made ourselves available to help her through some bumps in the road.
Australian Shepherd Aggression Towards Guests in the Home
One of our very early FetchMasters clients recently adopted an Australian Shepherd. However, the Aussie is showing some unexpected aggressive behavior towards guests who enter their home.
A couple of phone calls later, and a tutorial especially written for this client, and we have a plan in pace. We are staying in contact with the client, closely monitoring the situation, and starting to see some signs of hope.
