Online Coaching

The advantages of starting here are:

This gives you an opportunity to discuss your situation with me online. Hopefully we are a good fit … but I want you to be prepared for the fact that I do take a candid no-nonsense approach to training both with you and your dog.  For those more comfortable with a phone consultation, we will make that work. (The same rates apply.)

I am on your team!  I am committed to helping you achieve the results you’re looking for, whatever that might require.

I am also someone who is naturally as positive and loving as any good teacher could be.  But I want you to be forewarned that I believe that there are situations where using strictly positive reinforcement and treats for training dogs is not going to suffice. 

In these situations, I want you to be okay with joining me in determining what level of consequences will work best with your dog, knowing that we would never use any more force than necessary.  You are included in the entire process of determining what will work best. 

Then again, spending time online first may also provide you with all the advice you need … and save you money.

I am in my 40th year as a professional dog trainer and dog behavior specialist.  I have had no less than 40,000 private lessons with clients like yourself over this time span.

It is still true that every dog and each dog owner are unique individuals.  Nevertheless, the wealth of experience that I bring to the table oftentimes gives me the advantage of being able to show up online and know what needs to be said and done. 

Your online coaching session would come in the form of a Zoom meeting. I would email you an invitation in advance for a specific time and we can view each other as we talk.  I can also view your dog (and sometimes your dog’s behavior) online.

Clients who have a portable laptop can also show me around the house if there is an area that I would like to see for our training purposes.

The investment for online coaching or phone consultations is $100.00 for the first 1/2 hour or $150.00 for a full hour.

Karyn of Garvin's Divine Dog Training is a miracle worker. When my husband and I first started working with Karyn 10+ years and 3 dogs ago we had been turned down by prior trainers...stating that our Italian Greyhound puppy was just that...a puppy...and "to give it time" and were even told that maybe we got the wrong breed. After just one meeting with Karyn, the puppy knew his name, wasn't afraid of the leash and most important....we weren't afraid of our decision to get a dog!!! She has the whole family how to be one cohesive unit and how to work together! Something I thought was not possible!!
Karyn has the knowledge and know how to train not only my dog with verbal and non verbal commands, she was able to teach my husband and I the skills we needed to be successful. Because of her years and expertise she taught my husband and I that it's okay be frustrated and lost at times. Because of her care, compassion, knowledge and integrated approach to training we are now working with Karyn on our third puppy,(another Italian Greyhound) and our Yorkie is getting a refresher course.
I myself have a very hectic schedule and was able to do my first on-line coaching session. How many trainers would be willing to meet with you in-between clients remotely on a Saturday morning after sending her an SOS email mid week?!?! 1 and 1 only...KARYN GARVIN!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only did this save me time (and my sanity), but it also saved me money.

If you are looking for someone who will give you the time and training that you deserve on an Integrated Approach for Dog Training, then do yourself and your dog a favor, contact Karyn. You will not be disappointed.
