How We Work
It’s a virtual world! Let us show you how effective virtual training can be. Your dog will love you for it.
Clients tell us that training their dogs in the privacy of their own home through our virtual training sessions makes training easy, efficient, and most of all effective!
We’re pros at virtual training, having started online sessions with clients in 2015.

Online Dog Training and Behavior Sessions
All you need is a computer, an online connection and a webcam, and you can meet with us to resolve your dog training and behavior issues. Your online dog training session will be booked at a time convenient for you and you don’t even need to live in the same area as our consultants! In fact we can meet with you from anywhere in the world! We’ve been working virtually with clients for over six years and we’ve developed an expertise of easily being able to help you meet your goals for your dog.
We help you with behavior and training issues for puppies and dogs. Some possible topics that can be covered in a virtual session include:
- Training techniques and instruction on typical obedience behaviors
- Cooperative vet care to help your animal at the vet’s office or with needed daily at-home medical treatments
- Pre- and post-adoption counseling
- Planning for your puppy’s “coming home” success, including housetraining and how to prevent puppy nipping and biting
- Common dog behavior problems such as house training, barking, digging, chewing, pulling on leash, jumping on people, and destructive behavior
- Serious dog behavior issues such as separation anxiety and some forms of aggression. Aggression cases are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to find out more. If we determine you need an in-home consultation we will help you seek out a competent professional in your area.
Here's How We Help
How Does Online Dog Training Work?
No fancy or expensive technology needed to do a virtual session. If you have a computer with a webcam or a smartphone or tablet and an internet connection, you’re set! We use free, easy-to-download video chat software, such as Zoom.us.
We’ll walk you through the entire process so don’t worry if you’re “technically challenged” – we make the process painless and enjoyable – we promise!
When you purchase an Initial Consult Session, you’ll be directed to the trainer’s calendar and can schedule a time and date that’s convenient for you and your family. We can even have more than one webcam on the session so household members can call in from other locations. We have worked with clients all over the U.S. and internationally.
After we discuss your case, depending on your goals and your pet’s needs, we’ll design a custom training package for you and schedule future sessions.
What Does Online Dog Training Cost?
Your journey to training success begins with a 60 minute Initial Consult.
60 Minute Online Virtual Training Session $150
In the initial consult session we’ll:
- Listen to your needs
- Understand your dog’s behavior challenges
- Review your goals for your dog
- Discuss a management plan to prevent the dog’s unwanted behavior
- Help you prioritize your goals
- Discuss a multi-step training plan
After we discuss your case, depending on your goals and your dog’s needs, we’ll suggest a customized training package to help you reach your goals.
The content of the training package is designed specifically for you and your dog. The length of time to bring about behavior change and for a dog to learn new skills is different for each dog. We’ll suggest the appropriate package based on your dog’s needs. Our goal is your success.

Working with Lisa was such a wonderful combination of fun, learning, and shared admiration for our animals. We enjoyed every step of the process, and accomplished quite a lot with little more than weekly virtual sessions! Lisa put together a spreadsheet for us that gave us everything we needed to know, from videos of training exercises to articles that helped us better understand our girl's behaviors. She gave us a weekly schedule for practice that was fun and easy to follow. We've noticed such a huge difference in Mia's behavior already, and are so happy to have these resources moving forward so we can continue to work with her to help her be the best pup she can be. We highly recommend Cold Nose College.
Rachel is very welcoming and definitely shows compassion and knowledge about training. She incorporated an overview, some key terms for me to consider, and gave excellent examples. She also outlined some options for training, and provided a few tips on some activities to start with over the next few weeks. I will schedule further training with Rachel after I return from Florida in January and look forward to learning from her. Thank you for guiding me in her direction!
