Recreational Truffle Dog Training 101
Welcome! This class has a Full Student limit of 10. Each Full Student receiving feedback from Kristin and Alana will be progressing through the material at a pace appropriate for their team. Auditors may want to identify a Full Student of similar skill level to follow.
How it works!
You will immediately have access to the Lesson 1 – Introduction and Foundation Skills where you will find information regarding how to purchase your truffle scent source as well as some basic training information. Content is available by clicking on Recreational Truffle Dog Training 101 under the My Classes menu.
Full Students should post video homework and questions in their individual topic. This allows each team’s progress to remain organized and easily accessible. Please allow 48 hours from time of purchase for your topic to appear in the forum. We create forum topics manually. If you signed up as a Full Student and a topic titled with your name does not appear within 48 hours of purchase, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Homework – Each Full Student may be progressing at different paces. As your weekly homework, please post up to two (2) videos per week of up to three (3) minutes each. Please limit videos to 3 minutes or less and edit your videos to include important footage. Remember to limit your video submissions to 2 per week. Post your most recent video. Show us where you are in the training process and share how your team is progressing. All Full Students should be posting up to two videos per week. When posting, please identify which lesson you are currently working on
You will have access to new content once you complete and pass the quiz at the end of each lesson. Completed lessons will continue to be available for you to reference for 1 year from your sign up date. Full Students and Auditors may view the discussion forum for 1 year from the sign up date. Full Students will receive individual feedback via their forum topic for 10 weeks. After 10 weeks, the topic will be removed. Extended support is available for purchase if more feedback is needed beyond the 10 weeks.
Full Students – Please note that after 10 weeks, YOUR forum topic will be removed. You will still be able to view the up-to-date discussion forum and the current students working in the class for 1 full year from your sign up date, but your individual forum topic will expire in 10 weeks.
We recommend spending 2 weeks on each lesson. If you are an experienced clicker trainer, please review the material in Lesson 1, complete the quiz and move on to Lesson 2. Please be sure to save any material you wish to keep before the expiration date.
You may contact Alana or Kristin privately at any time.
