In this crazy world, some things have changed forever. And the faster we embrace them, the better.

One of those is the need for online, or virtual, training sessions for puppies. And if - like me - you can make these work to everyone's advantage then they can be truly effective, fun and engaging. 🙌

To help you with this, I have put together a collection of 13 very short video clips. They vary from straight-forward demos to demos plus information delivered to camera - so you can choose what would help your client most.

They can be used as part of your online training sessions:

🐶 To show your client exactly what to do (especially useful if you don't have a puppy handy yourself!)

🐶 To give you a little break, mid-session - as they watch the video via screen share

🐶 To provide a discussion opportunity about a specific issue or exercise

🐶 To give feedback to your client by discussing what I do or say

This vault of videos allows you to have key resources available at your fingertips - maximising your online consultations, and giving great value (and results!) to your clients!

Equip yourself today with the most effective virtual consultations 🙌
