We are offering a innovative new way to have the dog of your dreams. Stand alone traditional dog training is no longer the most effective form of training, not with our busy, hectic schedules. This is why we have created a dog training and wellness community, bringing the skills for success right to your computer, tablet, or phone.
Every week you will get an email from Bree, letting you know that the lesson has been posted.
Have questions as you go? We have a private Facebook group just for you.
When you join our Online Academy, you have instant access to our Core Skills (the basics that all dogs should know), as well as all previously released lessons that cover Wellness, Practical Skills, Fun Skills, and our monthly Train The Trainer Live Coaching.
Then each week, you will gain access to yet another new lesson to keep you moving forward.
If this all sounds like a lot, not to worry. Bree has created a success path for you so that your training is mapped out and planned. We include downloadable homework sheets, as well as "training cards" to help prompt you on what to work on in your training sessions as you move forward.
What is even better, with what we have to offer, you can train any breed, any age, anywhere. Your success is our top priority.
We believe in real world training, which means, what we teach has real-life application, on multiple topic areas, not just your typical sit and stay routine.
We also know with the plethora of information available online that it can be hard to know what is safe and effective when it comes to a positive holistic approach to our dogs overall mental and physical well being. Bree will share with you, her years of experience in this realm, so that you too can have dogs that live long, happy, stress free lives.
In addition to the Core Skills, you will get a NEW LESSON each week within the categories of Wellness, Practical, Fun, PLUS meet with Bree via Zoom once a month for our LIVE Train The Trainer time. Have a question that just can't wait? Not to worry, that is what our Exclusive Facebook Group is for.
These skills are what every good dog should know. We break it down to teach you how to teach your dog. This creates the dog that does not have to be micromanaged throughout the day, and by default makes good choices.
In our wellness lessons we talk about the whole dog, along with skills that many take for granted but others struggle with. We chat about diet, sleeping arrangements, natural remedies for pest control and so much more. Most of the topics are paired with the use of doTERRA Essential Oils.
We are all about teaching practical life skills. We believe that having a well behaved, well mannered dog, is the key to a happy household. The practical skills that we teach will help you in creating a dog that makes good choices, taking your core skills to the next level.
Yep, you read that right! We are all about the fun when it comes to working with our dogs. To them, life is a game, so why wouldn't we treat our training the same way! We love to teach problem solving, confidence building, boundaries, tricks, and so much more.
Every month, Bree goes live via Zoom to be available for you to ask questions, get personal feedback and more. This time was specifically designed to support you on your training journey.
Have a question that just can't wait? We have a group just for you to ask it. This group is just for those that are part of our Online Academy, no question is too small. We are here for you.
We are firm believers in the power of doTERRA Essential Oils when it comes to the wellbeing of our pets. For this reason we have included the Bonus Essential Oil Basics which includes 5 key lessons on how to use doTERRA Essentials Oils safely and effectively with your dogs.
With each lesson that you watch, Bree has created a downloadable Cheat Sheet to take notes and add to your new Training Journal. PLUS with each new skill set, download and print the Training Cards, each has quick reminders to help you be success in your training sessions.
With over 20 years of experience in the animal world, Bree has successfully competed, trained and taught in many dog sports; including obedience, rally, agility, nose work, conformation, russell racing, earth work, and herding.
She has taught group classes, in person and online private lessons, and has a very successful stay and train program, training dogs from all over the country.
Knowing there had to be a better way to share her skills, allowing high quality training to be affordable, regardless of where a person may live. Bree sought out and has taken extensive online training to learn how to bring you the best membership experience possible.
She lives in the mountains of San Diego, with her husband Chris and their 2 sons. She is owned by two Border Collies -Rumor & Reason, amd two Russell Terriers - Reckon & Savvy. They also have three cats, two roosters, and a dozen hens on their 2 acre hobby farm.
Answered by Bree
Q - How old does my dog or puppy need to be to participate?
The great thing about online training, you are not restricted by the age of your dog or puppy. Our training is beneficial for ALL ages, no restrictions!
Q - What if I want to cancel, am I stuck?
No, you are not stuck. Since our Academy access is month to month, you can cancel at anytime and the monthly charges will be cancelled.
Q - Will you have skills specific for my young puppy?
You're in luck, everything we teach is beneficial for all ages. Fingers crossed, we may have a puppy in our future, if so, I will be sharing everything that I do, step-by-step, to create the dog of my dreams!
Q - What type of training methods do you use?
We are positive reinforcement based trainers. This means that we teach our dogs HOW to do something and then REWARD them for a job well done.
Q - Do you use treats in your training?
Simple answer is yes, we also use toys and life rewards throughout the process as well.
Q - What types of training tools do you recommend and use?
It is probably easier to say what tools we do NOT use. These include choke chains, pinch collars, and e-collars.
Q - How do I know if my dog is smart enough for training?
Not to worry. After you join, you will have access to our Core Skills section, think of it as an orientation and basic obedience course. Our Core Skills get everyone on the same page moving forward.
Q - What if I need a little more hands on help?
I do work with select dogs and owners with private online training. If you are part of our Community and feel you need additional assistance, I am happy to book a paid online private consult with you.
Q - Will you be teaching us how to use our essential oils with our dogs?
Yes! This is one of the areas that I am passionate about, the benefits that oils bring to our dogs are amazing and I can't wait to share that with you.
Q - Do I have to use essential oils to be part of this membership?
No, you do not. Though I hope that you would be willing to learn more about the use of oils and how they can support your dog's health and mental balance.
Q - Will you really be available to answer questions that I have?
Absolutely! With access to our Exclusive Facebook group, you can ask questions at anytime. Plus once per month we have our Train The Trainer time, so we can dive deeper on the problems at hand. The reason I created our Online Academy is to help people and their dogs. The only way to do that properly is to answer your questions and help you through the process.
Q - What if I don't use FaceBook?
Not to worry, we know that not everyone is on FB and for that reason our Train The Trainer Coaching is hosted via Zoom (like Skype) and all of our lessons are hosted on our website.
Q - How will we access the Online Academy site, where are the lessons?
Not everyone is on social media, for that reason it was our dream to create a site that anyone with internet can access. Our Online Academy is accessible right from our website, with a secure login. No social media use necessary.
