Online Training & What We've Learned

Last April, Leerburg launched our first fully interactive online course, Leerburg’s Relationship Games with Mark Keating. It was the beginning of a new era in dog training. Over the past several months, we have offered this course four times. Throughout those four 8 week courses we have learned as much about online training as the students have about their dogs. It has been an amazing learning experience for the students, as well as Mark Keating and all of the staff here at Leerburg. This interview with Ed Frawley is going to discuss some of the things that we have learned over the past several months, as well as the changes we have made to the course.

"I really enjoyed the course and I feel like I learned so much. Thank you very much!" - Alicia

Our Online training format allows us to present and modify the material in a variety of ways to cater to everyone’s unique learning style. At the end of each course, we sit down with Mark Keating to determine what we should modify in the course. We are able to take the commonly asked questions and answer them with short videos that are inserted directly into the course material. Our Live chat with Mark every Monday night has also allowed us to modify the training for each individual dog and trainer’s needs.

In addition, we have added a segment to each week of the course called Peer Learning. In the Peer Learning segment, you will have access to previous students’ demo videos. We chose a variety of videos to illustrate both the correct method and strategies for working through common issues you may run into throughout your training.

“Thank you for running the course and for all the input and feedback over the last 8 weeks. I have really enjoyed taking part in the relationship games and have looked forward to each week’s games with excitement. Mark you make it easy to learn!” - Helen

All in all, the course that will be launching on August 4th will be vastly different from the course we launched back in April. We are extremely excited about this new way to train, and looking forward to adding more courses and improving our students’ overall experience in every possible way. If you have not tried out our online training program, I invite you to check out the courses we are currently offering at We have both fully interactive courses and self-study courses for those of who do not have the time to commit to an interactive course.

I am just finishing up the beginner Heeler's Toolbox class, and looking forward to the intermediate class. Before doing this interactive class I did the self study Teaching Engagement Skills with Forrest. Even though my dog and I had been doing many of the things that were in both classes, these classes have been educational and FUN. I live in the black hole of dog training so being able to access training like this is super for me. One benefit is that the classes help keep me on track, keep my training correct, exciting, and fun as I have to work by myself most of the time. I would strongly encourage all levels of dog folks to take advantage of Leerburg University! Five thumbs up!
