    I enrolled Billy in puppy classes, we managed 3 physical sessions until the lockdown and now they've moved online. To be honest I was a bit sceptical as to how it would work but it was a great success. We set the laptop up so the trainer could see what we were doing. She shared videos of exercises and got us doing them after. Yes socialisation with other dogs is important but these sessions really help keep us on the right track. She's also great with individual issues and will take the time to talk through them before or after a session and via text. Just thought I'd share as I know a lot of people are getting puppies at the moment and may not know there is support out there.

    I’ve done a lot of zoom work with Loki’s trainer and it has been helpful. She would set tasks to do and it was good to talk things through and keep us on task.

    Online training is definitely a real option nowadays. Trainers also need to keep their business going so are adapting really well.

    I've done a few zoom sessions as 121s which have worked well. We have discussed the possibility of taking our classes online, but at the moment I don't think it would work logistically for us. However, if trainers can make it work it work then great!
