I want you to imagine having a qualified, five-times certified Professional Dog Trainer & Behaviour Coach in your pocket for a whole day.

Imagine picking up your phone, sending a quick voice message or text and getting a response anywhere from immediately, to less than an hour later. Your response might include resources, a training plan, a quick video to demo the concept, or simply some words of encouragement. 

You got it.

VoxerDays are here!

You can book a half day or a full day with me, Caryn Liles, and I'll be available to you as you navigate your first day with your new puppy, work with your dog who is struggling with a behaviour issue, or simply teach your dog some quick manners before the in-laws come to visit on the weekend.

How does this work?

In a nutshell, you get access to me for a half day or a full day, off and on using Voxer (a free walkie-talkie voice/ text message app) and I give you the support you need that you could never get in a 30min or 60min coaching session.

The most common question I get from private clients comes at the end of a session; they ask me if I can move in with them. Wouldn't that be nice? We laugh and I go on with my day, hoping they'll be able to implement everything we've discussed. 

I dream of the day where humans can connect our brains by USB or Bluetooth so that I can transfer all the information, skills, knowledge, and experience that makes me so successful in raising a dog. I might be waiting a long time, so I've come up with a "second best" solution and here's what that looks like:

In a 30- or 60-minute lesson, we simply cannot dig deep enough into what you really need. 

Most people cannot afford ongoing or long-term coaching as it's a huge commitment both financially and energetically. 

The online courses are fantastic but sometimes you need a more custom solution for your own situation. 

You KNOW you need support to get the results you are looking for when it comes to raising your dog. 

Who is this for?

When we piloted this program, we found that there were a few typical cases that were most successful in this format:

  • you just adopted a puppy and you are overwhelmed with questions and worries
  • you have a dog who is suffering from a behaviour challenge that is causing you stress and you just need some hand-holding while you work through the training plan
  • you are preparing your dog for a baby and need some detailed coaching to be sure you've got this under control before the big day

Do any of those sound like you?

Got questions? I've got answers.

What is Voxer? 

Voxer is a free walkie-talkie app that allows us to exchange voice and text messages as well as short videos. It's similar to WhatsApp. 

What happens during my scheduled time?

During your VoxerDay (or half-day), here's what happens:

  • I'll welcome you with a voice message or video at the start of our scheduled day
  • You'll record short (or long) voice messages with your thoughts, worries, or questions
  • I will respond to your message with a blend of voice messages to coach you through, resources to back up what I'm suggesting, a training plan, a quick video to demo the concept, or simply some words of encouragement
  • You'll continue to send me short messages after you've had time to review what I've sent. Maybe you just tuck it away for later, maybe you go give it a try and come back with follow up questions, maybe you question the idea and need a tweak or two. 

How long will it take for you to get back to me? 

We’ll be exchanging messages throughout the day at a steady, yet relaxed pace. Sometimes back and forth, sometimes with some gaps for other stuff going on in our lives & work. You won't go longer than 45 minutes without a response. 

Do I need to book the day off?

Not at all! You don’t need to change much in your calendar for this at all. A VoxerDay works really well around meals, errands, dropping the kids off, and even meetings and calls! Ultimate flexibility! You get out of it what you put in. 

I'm a "chatty Cathy" and I think aloud...

No problem! This is why I created this program. So many people do better when they can just spill their guts and have someone else process it for them. Sometimes I'll have followup questions before I can suggest something, but I'm quite good at filtering information and sussing out what it really is that you need to focus on. I don't think Voxer cuts off voice messages at any length, so we're good! 

What if something comes up and I need to reschedule?

No problem. Life happens! Just be sure to give me 24 hours' notice so that I can accommodate another client in your place.
