Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?

You will have access to each module (and instructor feedback) for 6 months from your enrollment date.

So enrolling is free, but the lessons cost money?

Correct! Membership in Puppy Games is free and you may choose to pay for whichever modules you would like to work on with your dog.

I have a rescue dog that's not a puppy - can I take this class?

Yes! Foundations can be done with new dogs of any age. Your pup can be an honorary puppy!

Do I need any agility equipment for this class?

Not for lots of Puppy Games 1! We'll be using household items like bowls, steps, big books, potted plants, garbage cans, etc. So much can be done without obstacles! We will be introducing low jumps, the tire, and a tunnel.

Do I need a lot of space to do these exercises?

Nope! I'm in Vermont and the outdoors was cold (and snowy) when I taped Ruthie for Puppy Games 1. We did a lot in my tiny living room!

Do I need any special technical equipment to access this course?

If you are submitting video, you will need a way to record video and upload it to YouTube or Facebook.

For accessing the class, any web browser should work for reading the class pages, watching videos, and posting your videos, questions, and comments.

I still have a question, how can I contact you?

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at amandashyne@gmail.com.
