Upcoming Workshops

Experience the presentation style of a webinar...

With the personalized feedback of a Gold Spot — without the commitment!  

What is it?

Workshops are a week-long class, providing step-by-step instructions on training a specific skill.

There are two parts to a workshop.  Part 1 is a recorded video presentation from the instructor, explaining how to work on the skill with your dog. Part 2 is a live webinar where the instructor provides feedback for working students.

You have the option of signing up as a working spot or as an auditor. Once you sign up, your workshop classroom will be added to your “My Courses” page.

The workshop classroom will contain all materials for that workshop, including the lecture, and information on attending the feedback session.

What does it cost?

Workshop pricing purple

  • Working Spot - $39.95. Working participants recieve access to all presentation materials and will submit a short video (approx. 90 seconds) for instructor feedback. Limited number of spots available.

  • Auditor Spot - $29.95. Students will receive access to all presentation materials but will not submit video for review.  Auditors may ask questions during the live webinar. Unlimited number of spots available.

How does it work?

On the first day of the Workshop (noted in each workshop description), the lecture portion of the workshop will be released. This will be a recorded video presentation - watch at a time of your convenience.

Now practice with your dog! Students with a working spot will upload a short video of their work to YouTube and share the link in the classroom homework forum by the date and time listed in the first assignment (Note: it’s important that students with a working spot submit homework video on time or they will forfeit the opportunity for instructor feedback).

One week after the release of the presentation there will be a live webinar! The instructor will provide feedback on the working student submissions and answer questions — all students are welcome to attend and participate!  This session will also be available as a recording for those who cannot attend live.

Here's what a "sample" workshop schedule might look like:

 The recorded feedback session will then be added to your workshop classroom and the workshop will be added to your class library (found under the “My Library” tab in your menu) once the class has concluded.
