If you're a new pet parent, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of information you need to learn to ensure your furry friend is healthy and happy. Thankfully, VETalk is here to help! With 24/7 access to licensed veterinary experts, you can get answers to your pet's health questions whenever you need them.

But, before your first VETalk training session, there are a few things you can do to ensure your dog is ready for the experience. Here are some tips to help you prepare:

  1. Choose a Quiet and Distraction-Free Environment Find a quiet room in your home, free from distractions. This will help your dog to focus on the training session without getting distracted by anything in their surroundings.
  2. Make Sure Your Device is Ready to Go Ensure that your device is fully charged and that you have a stable internet connection. It's best to use a computer or tablet rather than a phone, as the larger screen will allow you to see the training session more clearly.
  3. Get Your Dog Comfortable with the Virtual Environment Before the training session, introduce your dog to the virtual environment. Let them sniff around the computer or tablet that you'll be using and get them used to the sounds and voices that they'll be hearing during the session.
  4. Arrive Early and Find the Call Link in Your Inbox Arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled training session so that you have time to get set up and comfortable. Make sure to find the call link in your inbox so that you're ready to join the session when it starts.
  5. Have Treats and Toys Ready During the training session, have some treats and toys on hand to reward your dog for good behavior. This will help to reinforce the positive behaviors that your dog is learning and make the training session more enjoyable for them.

Preparing for your dog's first virtual VETalk training session may seem overwhelming, but with these tips, you can make the experience enjoyable and effective for both you and your furry friend. Good luck with your training session, and have fun!
