DOG TRAINING SHOULD BE FUN!

Our main goal for each program is establishing and maintaining a strong, positive relationship with your dog; a relationship built on trust and mutual respect. We aim for your dog to turn to you for comfort and direction, and strives to please you.

We are positive-reinforcement, force-free trainers, meaning all of our training is built on a foundation of having  fun with your dog, while at the same time utilizing it to reinforce desired behaviours. A significant aspect of our training is manipulating a dog's environment so they make good choices that we can reward them for, which encourages these good behaviours so they are naturally repeated.

OUR CLASSES

All of our classes are six weeks in length, consisting of one hour classes running once a week.

NOVICE OBEDIENCE

Our Novice Obedience program is suitable for dogs of all ages and all breeds. If you have a pup who needs to learn basic manners, a teenage dog who struggles with distractions, or an older dog who needs a boost in confidence, this program is suitable for all.

In this program we cover basic obedience skills such as ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘leave-it’, ‘focus’, recalls to handlers, amongst other behaviours that make for a well-rounded companion. We also put a large emphasis on leash walking skills and maintained stays. We practice all of these skills with increasing distractions such as toys, food, other people, and other dogs. This prepares the dog to focus, and look to their owner for direction when in many different environments and situations.

  • Please note dogs DO NOT attend week one of this program.

  • Upon registration you will receive an email that includes all the vital information for class. Be sure to check your junk folder, and if you haven't received it please reach out to us prior to class.

REACTIVE ROVER

Our Reactive Rover program is suitable for dogs that react to other dogs, people, and many other things they encounter in day to day life. Dogs may display their reactivity aggressively, fearfully, anxiously or overly excited. Their behaviours towards their triggers may include barking, growling, raising their hair, lunging, pulling on the leash, tail tucking, shaking, or running away. All different types of dogs who struggle with these reactions would benefit from this program by learning to handle and deal with their triggers in a new, positive way and turning to their handler for guidance, comfort, and direction.

This class will provide owners and handlers with the critical skills required to safely assist their dog and navigate daily challenges that may arise in their homes or communities. The class will build trust and confidence between the handler and their dog utilizing only positive-reinforcement and counter-conditioning methods.

  • Please note dogs DO NOT attend week one of this program.
