How to Submit a Video


Shooting an Online Dog Training Video
Use your phone or a digital camcorder and film a short demonstration of anything you’d like help with. It’s best if you keep your video short, somewhere between 1 and 5 minutes long.

Please describe the challenge that you’d like coaching on as you are filming. Film your video with plenty of soft light so we can clearly analyze the footage.


Upload Instructions for an Internet Service Dog Training Video
Companion Training uses YouTube’s privacy controls to provide a simple way for our customers to submit “Unlisted” videos (so nobody can see them except us). It’s easiest to use if you film your video with a smart phone, then upload your video using the official YouTube app, and choose the “Unlisted” option. When it’s done uploading, just email the link to:

“I highly recommend using Companion Training’s Online Coaching System, I used it for my dog Stella and got great results. They were prompt to reply to my questions within just a few days, and always had great advice. T.J. Smith was my coach, and he was very thorough with all of his instructions.”
