Hybrid Learning Empowers Your Students to Achieve Dream Results

It’s frustrating. 

You’ve put together the perfect dog training course and you know that your clients should be getting results that blow them away. But the reality is, they try to take the information away to practice, but get frustrated when it doesn’t work right away, or forget what it was they were meant to do. 

How can you set your students up for success and enable them to progress the skills they are learning beyond the classroom?

People learn differently. Bringing together a variety of dog training resources can help your learners to overcome the hurdles stopping them from going all in and getting the results they dream of with their dog. 

Learning styles include visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic. Enabling students to process information in multiple ways will enhance their results massively. 

Hybrid learning is a complete gamechanger and it’s revolutionising the dog training industry worldwide. By harnessing resources that speak to all of your learners, you empower them to reach their true potential and unleash the ultimate pet parent that you know is lurking inside. 


What is hybrid learning?

Like dogs, people are all individuals. So it makes sense that the way they learn best differs. 

Hybrid learning combines in-person training with easily accessible online resources and support to back up and enhance your students learning experience. Following a training session, your students will only retain some of the information covered, so it makes sense that things fall by the wayside a little once they leave class. 

In class, there are many distractions for your learners. They need to juggle looking after their dog, listening to your instructions, the mechanics of doing the training, as well as their own feelings and worries. 

After just one day, people forget more than 70 percent of what was taught in training. 

Couple this with transferring information to family members who couldn’t make the session, and you have a perfect cocktail for confusion. 

Is it any wonder students come back session after session without making great progress?  



How does hybrid learning make your dog training more effective?

By providing your students with a variety of additional resources to reinforce their learning, you will set them up to succeed and reach their training goals. 

This means better results for their dogs, their self-confidence, and for you and your business!


What are the benefits of hybrid learning?

  • Improves information retention
  • Aids accurate transfer of information to other family members
  • Inspires practice
  • Strengthens motivation
  • Enhances results
  • Increases client retention

Hybrid learning enables your students to remember more and to transfer learning to other members of their household successfully. It inspires them to practice more often with their dog as they start to see measurable results, and their successes create confidence. 

When your clients feel good about their training experience and results, this seamlessly leads to them wanting to stay with you to learn more and encourages great referrals through word of mouth. 


What might you include in a hybrid learning program?

  • In-person sessions - one-to-one or group classes
  • Access to a video vault of tutorial videos so they can see training in action
  • Handouts so they can revisit and digest the information
  • Audio recordings they can listen to anytime
  • Community group - fostering connection and delivering additional coaching via feedback on student posts
  • Progress tracking resources so they can see movement
  • Games/challenges to inject some fun and joy

Your base offer for your dog training clients is your one-to-ones and group training classes. 

When you bolster that with video tutorials, handouts, audio content, and games that inject fun into their training, magic happens. 

Adding an online community creates a connection between pet parents for support, accountability, and inspiration and allows continued opportunities for feedback and coaching remotely.

You’ve developed a package that meets every learning style so you can bring out the best in all of your learners. 

Now you have the perfect cocktail for success.



Why invest in upgrading your business to offer hybrid learning?

The ultimate benefits of offering hybrid learning resources are that it can supercharge not only your client’s results but your job satisfaction and business success. 

The added benefit is resilience for your business. We all know what it felt like when our businesses had to pivot on a dime. It was incredibly hard for so many dog trainers. A hybrid learning model means you already have everything you need in place should you have to return to online only training for any reason. 

And you’ll already have a base of superfans who will happily vouch for how effective they’ve found online learning to be.  

If you love in-person teaching, you can simply enhance your offering with these tools. And if you’ve discovered  a newfound joy in training online, then you’re good to go. 

Essentially, hybrid learning means the world is your oyster. When you’re delivering unparalleled support and results, your business can only flourish. 


Conclusion

By seizing the opportunity to accept not just the dogs you work with as individuals but the people too and setting up your coaching to support their unique learning styles, you can empower your dog training business to soar. 

Incorporating hybrid learning will help your dog training clients to completely enroll in the program and to commit to doing the work needed with ease and enthusiasm.
