Holistic Online Training Works!  

Since 2007, thousands of people have had successful remote training help from me when everything else failed. 
Holistic online training is proving to be the most effective training method available.

Working with a trainer online is supportive and empowering for both you, your family, and your dog. Not only does it help balance your dog's body, mind, and spirit, but it also reinforces a balanced relationship between all family members that are involved in the training process. It's so easy that even a small child can learn how to train a dog with online coaching.

My online clients worldwide

The only difference between online and in-person training is that I'm on a video feed instead of at your house. I call you on whatever live feed video is most convenient for you- Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger, or Hangouts- and walk you through the training process. I demonstrate on one of my dogs what I want you to do, then watch you as you practice on your dog, and correct you if necessary.  If you like to have a copy of your training session i can record it on ZOOM.

how is online training better than In-home training? 

Online Training has many advantages over having a trainer coming into your home.

  1. Your dog only gets information and education from you or your family

  2. Your dog does not feel the need to protect you or your home from an outsider

  3. Everything starts calmly with no stress or distractions

  4. The whole family can attend

  5. No Vaccinations needed

  6. No age limitations

  7. No travel time or costs are involved, so it saves you money

  8. More flexible appointments - I can be virtually everywhere ( as long you have internet reception)

  9. Help your dog reach his or her highest potential

  10. Faster results

When other trainers left my home, they took the training power with them. After I worked with Roman online, the training power stayed with me.

Online training options:

Single Virtual Training Sessions

Initial Virtual Training  (45 minutes @ $97.00)

If you need only one training session to refresh your Holistic Training skills, or your dog shows minor behavior issues, then this is the right session for you. Many people see huge improvement with only one session in 60% of behaviors.

Premium Virtual Training (1 hour @ $120.00)

The premium training session, is is to help you and your dog better understand your relationship. Identify the triggers, underlying causes and complexity of your dog's or dogs behavior. This is the best single session if you have dog-dog disputes or human-dog disputes with a reactive dog that shows signs of aggression.* This might stabilize the situation in your home and give you time to make arrangements, however, from experience a Behavior modification bundle is the best long term solution. 

*)  If your dog is usually calm and loving but suddenly displays aggression, your first course of action should be to see your veterinarian.

Premium Behavior Consultation (1 hour 30 minutes @ $160.00)

This session is for complex dogs or multiple dogs home with aggressive behavior, severe trauma or if there is no information about their past. This session includes intuitive reading, remote re-connective healing, and training session to help stabilize the situation.

Online Synergistic Archetype reading.

What is archetype?

The origins of the archetypal hypothesis date as far back as Plato. Plato's ideas were pure mental forms that were imprinted in the soul before it was born into the world. They were collective in the sense that they embodied the fundamental characteristics of a thing rather than its specific peculiarities. 

My views about the 'archaic remnants', which I call 'archetypes' or 'primordial images,' have been constantly criticized by people who lack a sufficient knowledge of the psychology of dreams and of mythology. The term 'archetype' is often misunderstood as meaning certain definite mythological images or motifs, but these are nothing more than conscious representations. Such variable representations cannot be inherited. The archetype is a tendency to form such representations of a motif—representations that can vary a great deal in detail without losing their basic pattern.” Carl Jung

I recognized that using these archetypes would be helpful when it comes to identify and create a virtual representation of a family system that includes different species.

In order to create balance the Family system each member of the family has to adjust his energy accordingly.
The Systemic Archetype Reading is an intuitive approach to capture a "energetic screenshot” of a family system.
It gives a present representation of each member’s archetype and its relationship within.

It helps identify behavior patterns in search of energetic blockages that affects the whole family system including the animals living within.

Roman was able to open my eyes and look at things differently. I had successfully rehabbed many food aggressive dogs in the past but Larry was different. A couple things Roman explained and I did/do are

1: A mid day healthy snack

2: I stood there monitoring and I make sure the other animals give him his space so that he doesn’t feel the need to defend himself

3: Relationship building with Larry (basic obedience with positive reinforcement individually, then add one dog at a time)

We went from multiple daily food aggression incidences to Zero meal related incidences and a handful of other food (treats, crumbs the kids left behind etc) incidences in months.
