Virtual Classes via The Right Paw
Until it’s safe to meet in groups again, all of our classes at The Right Paw will be offered online through Zoom. This way we can keep all of our clients healthy and safe, AND still help you train your pups! You’re stuck inside with them anyways, why not work with them to help them be their best doggie selves?
Zoom is a wonderful platform for hosting group meetings. Everyone in group will be able to see each other (and all the dogs) as well as the instructor, Jen. Jen has been teaching virtually for a few years, it really is the next best option when you can’t meet in person! All you’ll need is a computer with video capability, a laptop, or a tablet. You’ll be emailed a link to the Zoom meeting.
The best part of it all, once you graduate from your virtual group course, you’ll get a credit for a one hour in person group follow up! This means you get an extra class! These refresher classes with be scheduled at The Right Paw as soon as possible. The credit will expire at the end of the year.
During your virtual group class, you’ll get access to a private group on Facebook where you can post videos of your training lessons and ask questions.
