What to bring for class

Orientation

  • Yourself (no dogs please) and any family who want to attend.
  • Questions to ask at the end of the orientation.
  • If already signed up for class, your dog's current vaccinations so you will not have to bring them to class one!

Remote Training

  • Internet access.
  • Recording devices with quality mic/camera (IE laptop, desktop, smartphone, tablet, etc)
  • If using handheld device, like a smartphone, make sure it is fully charged.
  • A quiet room or area to allow video and audio with minimal disruption.  This area should allow an 8x8 area for you to move around with your dog and still be in the visual frame for your instructor.
  • Download Zoom (you do not need an account, just the app and it's free), here is a link for further assistance. If using your phone, iPad, etc. you can download from your app store for free.
  • Meeting via Zoom.  A Zoom link is sent in your confirmation email.
  • Once you receive your confirmation email please test the Zoom link two days before scheduled meeting. This will allow you to ensure the WiFi, Zoom link, technology, and lighting in the room are ready to go!
