Virtual Consults

Looking to get a professional opinion, but can’t find someone in your area who meets your standards (or agrees with your training preferences)?

Get Advice Without Leaving Home

We offer virtual consults

It can be hard to tackle a training problem when your trainer isn’t right there, in your home, with you! Virtual consults offer an option for remote clients (both local or long-distance) to work with Donia to solve their training problems from the comfort of your home.

We offer virtual consults using Zoom, Facetime, and WhatsApp. 

If you’re interested in scheduling a session, please contact us with a general idea of days/times that work best for you (Ex: weekend, weekday evenings, weekday during the day) and we’ll get back to you with a few appointment options to choose from. 

Once we agree on a mutually convenient day and time, we will email you information on how to join the online meeting. 

Please note: For a virtual consult, you will need a computer camera and mic — and for the best experience we strongly recommend using a laptop or desktop computer. 

Whiskers & Wags Student Community

Via Facebook

Students also gain access to our private Facebook community, where we regularly share tutorial videos, plus the occasional Facebook Live to answer questions in real time. Students can post questions and share videos of their own training for feedback!

I started with Puppy Prep private lessons to learn the basics with a new puppy — I think that was the best thing I could of ever done for myself and Sammie! I highly recommend it to anyone who is going to get a puppy. I also put Sammie into Board & Train for his benefit. Donia has spoiled us — there isn’t anyone out there like her!
