You can use any device that has internet service, a camera & microphone and can access Zoom. We recommend using a larger device like a tablet or computer rather than a mobile phone. We also suggest using wireless headphones.

How do I join my virtual session?

Each time a session is scheduled, you will receive a meeting invite with a link to join your upcoming session. While you are not required to download the Zoom app, we recommend using it to access key features of the meeting software to maximize your Virtual Training experience.

Here are some things you will need for your Virtual Pet Training:

  • Pen & notepad
  • Small, soft, bite-sized treats, canned food or other lickable treat.
  • Favorite toys
  • Pet bed or mat
  • Collar and leash (for dogs), harness and leash (for cats, if needed)
  • Clicker (recommended)
  • For some training, 4-6 small, expendable plates/lids/bowls (I like using butter dish lids or something similar. Your pet may damage them trying to pick them up)
  • Some way to mark off the area of the room that will be visible to your camera.
  • Other items you may need for training certain behaviors. (i.e. nail trimmers, brush, etc.)

Judy Seils

Judy Seils has over 20 years of experience working with dogs and cats in the most stressful of environments, the veterinary clinic. During that time, she taught dog training classes and helped clients with behavior issues. She trained and competed with two of her dogs, Dreamer and Shiloh, in flyball, and coached other teammates in training their dogs. Judy also had fun working with Dreamer and Shiloh in freestyle.

Though currently dogless, Judy is clicker training her calico cat, Ruby who is keeping her humble as they work on such behaviors as sit, beg, give me five, wearing a harness and others. Cats are definitely harder to train than dogs, but also fun to work with.

Judy loves using her knowledge to help other people train their dogs and cats.
