  • Our webinar presentations include video analysis. Dogs of Course and the speaker(s) will do their best to provide you with a quality product. However, there are factors of running live webinars beyond our control that can impact the overall quality.
  • The quality of the presentation video is contingent on your computer operating system, your internet connection and the bandwidth available. Even with high speed internet video can/will lag or stutter a bit. You should expect degraded video to some degree.
  • If your computer is older or your internet slow that your smart phone might be a better choice.
  • Please read and print out this link. It has important information. FAQ About ZOOM and This Webinar
