Membership Benefits:

As a member, you will have access to all the games, all the free classes and speciality games. And the price is well within reason. You pay only $10 a month or $100 per year.

You will have access to coaching calls once a quarter and will be given the opportunity to ask questions during these calls. New games usually show up a couple times a month with a new class a couple times a year. Your price for the paid classes is also affordable at $50 per class ($150 for non-members).

If you wish support while navigating through a free class, there is a minimal fee of $25.

There are currently 700 games in the database with a potential over the next couple of months to be all 1500+ games that we use. Those games are broken down in various way: into classes that show when to play each game and what games are in each class; specialty games for specific behavior issues; full classes that you can take for an extra small fee and get one on one assistance from the trainers at Play Your Way. Most of the games have a video showing how to play the game, how to start it and what it should look lik in the end.

There are 24 FREE class curricula. Each class is 4 to 8 weeks longs with either 6 games per week or really tough games that take more then one day to master. These classes cover obedience, assistance dogs, trick training, behavior, aggression, fitness, socialization and more. With each class you have the option of purchasing the class for $25 so as to get feedback from our trainers and be able to upload video. There is a section in the discussion forum for every class where you can brainstorm your training plans and ask for help from those who have been successful with that class.

Included with the classes are 64 "game chains" which are a series of games designed to handle a specific behavior or training issue. These specialized game chains cover issues like separation anxiety, biting, jogging with you, car sickness, or how to get major focus out of your dog.

There are also 25 classes that require a small fee as they are very intensive classes that require a lot of video work and one on one assistance from our trainers. For these classes you can submit as much video as is needed to show how you are doing in the class. These classes cover prey drive, distractions, replationship, service dogs, therapy dogs, more intensive programs for reactivity, aggression and fear as well as high levels in obedience, tricks and sports.

Functional Agility Trainer Certification Class:

Functional training takes us back to the roots of our association with canines and getting back to the basics of movement, body awareness, the flow that should be inherent in moving from space to space and when navigating obstacles, balance, coordination, flexibility and agility. Functional Agility helps provide your dog with the strength, stability, power, mobility, endurance and flexibility that s/he needs to thrive as s/he moves through life and sports. Using basic functional movement patterns like pushing, pulling, lunging, squatting, rotating, carrying and gait patterns, Functional Training utilizes exercises that improve movement proficiency, enhance performance and decrease injury.

"This is a great course! It still amazes me at how much I learned and retained. Jamie does a fantastic job of making the theory information clear and concise. This class has taken my training to another level. If you are on the fence as to whether this class is right for you, I believe it is a must for every dog/animal owner/trainer.
By the end of this course, I was able to break down a behavior and develop a plan and games that helped my JRT through his OT Excitement at Barn Hunts. A behavior that no other class or training could touch.
Game theory works!!" Barb
