Zoom Training

POWERFUL, EFFECTIVE,REAL-TIME

One of the most effective ways of experiencing pack training with Melissa!

Surprisingly Effective

Online dog training seems counterintuitive, but going live with Melissa is surprisingly effective.

Live - Face-to-Face - Hands-On

One of the reasons online training works so well is as the dog handler, you are forced to participate in your dog's rehabilitation by learning to understand your dog, and delivering easy, step by step instructions from Melissa to your pack.

How It Works

Melissa listens to the challenges in your pack, assesses your individual situation and offers sound guidance for creating  balance in your pack that YOU deliver.

 

COMMON IN-HOME BEHAVIORS ADDRESSED

in online and private trainings

Door Rushing

Your dog should be waiting patiently to be invited to pass through any threshold and trusted not to bolt through open doors.

Demand Barking

Your dog should NOT be telling you when it is time to walk, play or eat by demand barking for your attention.

Food Aggression

You should be able to take food away from your dog without a negative reaction, including taking away bones.

Furniture Jumping

Dogs should NOT  be dominating furniture or using it as a race track. You and your guests should be able to sit comfortably on your furniture.

Private Training

IN YOUR HOME OR NEIGHBORHOOD
(serving Orange County, CA and surrounding areas)

Melissa comes to you and works with your pack in your home, your backyard and your neighborhood. A convenient option that allows training to be simple and include human members of your pack and/or other animal pack members while working in a familiar setting where the behavior problems began.

Home Environment Challenges

Learn what influences you are having on your dog in the home. Have you set some structure for your dog around exercise, eating, acceptable behavior, training and play? Melissa will guide you in setting the necessary boundaries for your pack's success.

The Whole Pack Learns

Your dog has a lot to learn about being a good member of your pack and following you as the leader, but you also need to understand how to be a good pack leader. Learn how to communicate with your dog, give clear direction, and set sustainable boundaries and expectations for your dog by working with your dog through Melissa's direction.

 

COMMON OUTSIDE THE HOME BEHAVIORS ADDRESSED

Training Intensives

Fast-Track Your Dog's Training

Board and Train camps with Melissa can be a great way to see fast results with your dog. Your dog lives with Melissa from 3 days to two weeks to curb unwanted behaviors and balance your dog, train obedience skills, and socialize your dog to be a healthy pack member.
