Why Do Virtual Dog Training?

David Mead is the Vice President, Head of Marketing at PuppySpot. Dogs have been an important part of his life since his early childhood. He has a passion for dog training and believes that dogs make the best companions as long as you treat them right.

Over the past several years, a growing number of dog owners have turned to one-on-one dog training over video chat and found it to be more convenient, and also more effective. This shift accelerated in 2020 as COVID-19 restrictions took effect and consumers began exploring digital services more broadly.

The increasing popularity of virtual training is easy to understand. Traditional group classes force dogs to learn new skills in highly distracting environments, all while making puppy parents compete for the group trainer's attention. Virtual training on a platform like GoodPup provides a better solution through one-on-one coaching, personalized curriculum, and scheduling flexibility, all without leaving home. Dogs learn new skills faster and see problem behaviors improved more quickly.

Virtual training also provides advantages over traditional one-on-one courses. GoodPup recruits top trainers from across the country, letting puppy parents work with the best trainers no matter where they are located. Training over video chat also allows a dog to focus on and learn from their owner, improving the puppy-parent bond.

Finally, virtual training provides support outside the actual training session. GoodPup's app helps puppy parents build on what is covered in a training session and advance through a series of levels for each skill. And, if a puppy parent runs into any trouble between sessions, they are able to text chat with their trainer whenever they want.
