Our Training Philosophy

We Can Help With…

Leash Pulling

Does your dog pull you down the street or lung at other dogs and people? We can teach you how to walk your dog calmly on a loose leash. Check out our workshops and other training programs for more details.

Social Skills

Does your dog misbehave when off leash around other dogs, at daycare or at the dog park. Join our workshops, training programs and day adventure days to help your dog learn proper social skills in a supervised, structured environment.

Aggression & Reactivity

We specialize in aggressive and reactive dogs. Whether is dog on dog, dog on human or both we are here to help. Check out our board and train rehabilitation programs to have the dog you always dreamed of.

Puppy Training

Fear & Anxiety

Are you afraid to leave your dog at alone in fear of the destruction that will be there when you get home or the complaints from the neighbours? We can help! Check out our training programs to help bring peace and calmness back into your home.

Off-Leash Reliability

Do you wish you could walk your dog off leash where they come back to you when called 100% of the time. Check out our training programs to have off leash reliability with your dog.

Jumping up

Do you have to put your dog away when company comes over because they jump all over everyone and everything? Dogs are social animals and want to be with the family. We can help by teaching your dog how to be respectful in your home. Check out our workshops and training programs to learn how we can stop this behaviour.
