Online Classes

Why Online Classes?

Online dog training classes are becoming increasingly popular—and it's easy to see why.

Convenience and Flexibility

You can participate in a class from the comfort of your own home. You don't need to rush out the door after work or drag the kids along. In fact, you can cozy up in your sweats, turn on the Instant Pot, and train your dog while dinner's cooking

A Great Learning Environment

Let's be honest, trying to listen to instructions while handling your squirmy dog is difficult. Dog training online allows for deeper discussions and focused conversations, so you can actually learn.

Works for All Dogs

Online dog training is a great option for dogs that are reactive, anxious, or uncomfortable in new settings. But even the calmest of dogs benefit from learning new skills in familiar, distraction-free environments.

Meet Your Trainer

Taylor Wyllie, KPA CTP

Taylor Wyllie is a graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy for Professional Dog Trainers, and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

Her dog training journey began when she adopted her dog, Scott, and realized days later that he was a bit of an anxious mess (barking, lunging, the whole nine yards). She dove into the world of positive reinforcement dog training, helping to teach Scott how to relax and be a “normal” dog.

Taylor has since graduated from the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy, founded the Boise Reactive Dog Owner group, worked with a Treasure Valley shelter, and helped to make dogs and their humans happier.

She hopes to help you and your dog too.

What others are saying...

“There was no shaming of me as a dog owner. Every problem or "bad" behavior served a purpose for the dog and there was a solution to supporting them through that situation. I feel like this was a more objective, solution-focused kind of training compared to other trainers I have gone to.”

Michelle T

Reactive to Relaxed Online Class

“After training, I can see [my dog], Hike, starting to use some of the tools on her own to help disengage from something she really wants. I am also more patient when working with her and more understanding of why she may have certain behaviors.”

Erin S


“Taylor is a fun teacher and she's very helpful in addressing your dog's individual needs.”

Certification Matters

Anyone can call themselves a dog trainer, there are no state or federal licensing requirements.

However, there are several internationally recognized certification organizations. The Karen Pryor Academy, where Taylor is certified, is one of the top organizations in the country and, even, the world.

KPA graduates have completed an extensive educational program and have passed detailed assessments of both technical knowledge and hands-on skills.
