A Cheltenham dog training school has released an e-learning course to help people teach their pets without potentially exposing themselves or their loved ones to coronavirus.
CK9school.co.uk has launched a 2-week behaviour course for unruly dogs, and an 8-week full training course full of original techniques.
Rather than attending their dog training centre, owners can now access their courses online, and are supported by videoconferencing, digital tutorials and a range of other e-learning tools.
Carl Gerrard, owner of CK9school.co.uk and a professional dog trainer, said:
“With businesses and social activities crawling to a standstill, many people are finding themselves at home with their dogs and an unexpected amount of free time.
“This unique situation gives dog owners the ideal opportunity to focus on training and transforming the behaviour and skills of their canine family member.
“Although our normal operations are still taking place, we don’t know how long this will be the case for, and we don’t know how long social isolation will continue. Our new e-learning service means dog owners across the country can receive the full support they need to train their dogs in the comfort of their own home.
“We’re delighted to be able to provide dog training sessions remotely, and to give dogs and their owners productive and helpful assistance while reducing the spread of the coronavirus.”
