Are you struggling to put your dog’s training from class into context at home? Or maybe you can’t make it to as many classes as you would like, but would still like to expand your dog’s skills at home?
This June we are going to be launching our JV Training ONLINE PROGRAM!
Join us online as we offer tips, techniques, and our full Obedience Levels Program at the click of a button, complete with how-to descriptions and demonstration videos! Each module will be sold separately so you can have access to the areas you need help with, OR the entire package can be sold together at a discounted rate. Each program includes videos on how to teach the correct behaviour, how to grow the behaviour reliably, and how to use the behaviour in all kinds of scenarios. We will also be offering live, online coaching!

Training Tip of the Week
Having Fun with your Recall
Sometimes a game is a fun way to teach or practice a behaviour with your dog, compared to a defined “training session.” Wanting to get some more work in on your dog’s recall? Play hide and seek in the house with another human friend. Have one friend hold your dog, while the other goes to another part of the house. Signal when you’re ready and release the dog to come find you, then call your pup back to the first person. Practicing this back and forth motion with a reward at each end will help your dog realize its FUN to run to my humans and there’s usually a treat waiting for me when I get there.
As in person classes have begin to re-open, we have had the chance to meet some glorious new faces. Look who dove head first in to JV Training’s Level's Program and rocked it! Our Spotlight this week goes to the very talented Lalique the Silken Windhound, who has been flying through her skills and activities. We're so happy to have you with us!
