My Doberman Boaz and I have worked on the “hold” cue for the last 3.5 years with no luck. Because I am based in South Carolina, I took a long shot in asking if Dee would be available for a virtual dog training session via Skype. To my surprise this was a service her company already offered! In a half an hour session she observed us working, gave instant feedback, and broke the “hold” behavior down into small enough actions that Boaz was able to quickly and accurately master this new cue. In just seven days I was able to train Boaz to “hold!” For anyone out of state who wants to work with Dee and Applause Your Paws in Miami, FL, consider a virtual consult. They are highly effective — it’s like she’s right there with you!
Virtual dog training is more powerful than you think
