Both Group Classes and Private Lessons are now available for you in live, interactive, online Zoom rooms! This technology is super-easy to use: all you need is a phone, tablet or laptop/desktop computer with a webcam. Not tech savvy or not familiar with Zoom? No worries! If you’ve enrolled in one of our Virtual Group Classes or have booked a Virtual Private Lesson with a J9’s K9s trainer, we’ll be happy to help you in a FREE short, online practice session to get you familiar with the process before working with you and your dog. And of course as with all of our training options, virtual training includes unlimited free support from J9’s K9s for the life of your dog!

“I wanted to personally thank you for all the great training classes. Roma and I had a blast. I have to be honest that I was a bit leery of virtual classes but ended up being super pleased. It felt personal and we felt engaged in all the sessions. Once again, thank you for all the classes and all the answered questions along the way!”

Our Virtual Group Classes are kept quite small so you still get the personal attention that you do in our in-person classes. The curriculums are the same as in the fun and incredibly successful classes we’ve been running at physical locations for over 25 years. Your J9’s K9s instructor will demonstrate class exercises with their own dogs, then coach students one-on-one as they teach their dogs the skills on individual live video feeds. You’ll be able to watch your fellow students as this happens and hear the feedback your instructor gives them. Click here to learn more about our live, interactive, online Virtual Group Classes.

Our Virtual Private Lessons are conducted in the same way, but you and your dog will join your J9’s K9s trainer in a private Zoom Room for the unparalleled coaching you’re accustomed to from J9’s K9s. All behavioral issues can be addressed the same way we do in face-to-face sessions. Click here to learn more about our live, interactive, online Virtual Private Lessons.

There are other benefits to interactive virtual learning, too:

  • No commute time, no traffic, and no car ride for dogs who get car sick or anxious in your car.

  • You’ll be able to record and save ALL Group Class sessions and Private Lessons so you can access them forever. When you attend a Virtual Private Lesson with a J9’s K9s trainer, they’ll even record it for you and send you a link to the recording afterwards!

  • Teach new skills in a low-distraction environment which is much easier for you and your dog, then add distractions as your dog becomes proficient in the trained behaviors.

  • Great for dogs who are scared or reactive around unfamiliar people and/or other dogs.

  • Also good for humans and dogs who may be in poor health or who have mobility issues.

  • Train from the comfort of your home or anywhere else you have an internet connection – you can even attend in your jammies and slippers!

Please call us at 818-832-9906 if you have any questions about J9’s K9s Virtual Group Classes or Virtual Private Lessons, or if you’d like to schedule a free practice session beforehand. Looking forward to seeing you and your dogs on our screens soon!
