Zoom Classes & Workshops

All classes and workshops are suited for puppies to senior dogs who want to learn new skills. Instead of teaching behaviors, we teach concepts, such as calmness, focus, optimism, confidence, disengagement, etc. to get real life results! Pet dogs, sports dogs, companion dogs… who doesn’t need more fun in their life?

How does it work?

  • On-line classes and workshops are held on Zoom at a dedicated time (Time Zone MST)
  • For all ongoing classes there will be a dedicated, private Facebook Group where you can ask questions, post videos and receive feedback.
  • You can train at home, in your living room, yard or wherever suits you best. The choice is yours!
  • All of the Zoom calls are recorded and can be downloaded to re-watch at your own leisure.

LOOSE LEASH WALKING – Mission Possible

Starting TBA
4 weeks course – $120

We’re diving deep into what it takes for dogs to choose walking with us over pulling, lunging and reacting to the environment. All the elements of walking nicely on a leash can be trained at home by teaching concepts through playing the right games.

Here’s a message that I received from Anastasiya after the 4 week Loose Leash Walking course:

I just would like to extend my deepest thanks for teaching Bella and I games to make our walks stress free!!!! Today I took my infant daughter for a walk in a stroller for the first time. Bella of course joined in. She was magnificent, eyes on me almost the entire time with sniffing breaks of course. Not distracted, another dog was barking and coming up to her by the fence, recalled! She was on leash for some parts and off leash for others and she maintained the proximity regardless. It was most relaxing and enjoyable walk I have had with her in a while!
Thank you Gisela Griesser!!!!!

The Dimmer Switch

Whether your dog has a light switch or a dimmer switch determines how they can adapt to every day life situations. By playing strategic games, dogs can learn to better match their arousal level to the situation they find themselves in.
