Online puppy and dog training courses with Tonya Wilhelm

Positive and Fun Virtual Dog Training

If you are looking for a private and customized online dog trainer and training lessons, welcome! I have been a professional positive dog trainer since 1998 and opened my virtual doors via phone and Skype in 2013. Read my full bio here.

After two decades as an in-person dog trainer, I have learned that real dog training and behavior modification happen at home. With my professional guidance and our ongoing communication via Skype, phone, video tutorials, and/or video uploads, together we can improve your dog’s behavior, keep you on the right track, or just find fun ways to engage your pup.

My services go beyond basic dog obedience. As an advocate for raising pets naturally, I can assist you with choosing the best foods, DIY recipes, safe dog toys, canine massage, engaging dog games, dog care tricks, and more.

Private dog training is a wonderful way to ensure your goals and the needs of your dog are met and addressed. Each dog and person is an individual. However, what you will always find with my services is that I am committed to ensuring your dog training experience is a positive one and will uplift your motivation and your dog’s motivation.

If you are not computer-savvy, phone services are available, and I will help you learn how to send me video clips of your training progress if needed. We are in this together. Contact me today to get started.

What to Expect with your Virtual Dog Training Sessions

During our initial phone or Skype consultation, we will discuss your dog’s behavior, review the severity of your dog’s symptoms, discuss a personalized treatment plan, put management protocols in place, discuss add-ons for your case such as homeopathic remedies, calming aids, etc., and pull out your daily schedule to see where training will fit. At the end of your session, we can choose a training package that will meet your goals. Together, we will develop an individualized treatment plan for your family.

After our initial session, I will follow up with a detailed training plan, video links, written instructions, and product recommendations. My goal is to make you feel confident working with your dog. Contact me today to get started.
