Registration is open for classes and socials from November 2021 until February 2022!

For November and December, we are doing one hour seminars that focus on a specific skill or situation, or let you try a new dog sport. You can check out those classes here.

In January we will be resuming our usual six week sessions for group classes, with additional socials on Tuesday and Thursday mornings! Do not worry, the Saturday socials are also running as usual. You can sign up for socials here.

Kylie is now a Certified Canine Fitness Coach, and cannot wait to help you give your dogs the gift of happier lives! This is a fitness class for the dogs, not the humans, so no need to bring your gym clothes! You can check out the conditioning class, along with the others running in January and February, here.

Class Information

Training Methods

We train with a dedicated focus on engagement: when your bond with your dog is mutually rewarding for both dog and owner, it is incredible what you can accomplish. From fun tricks to life saving safety skills, this type of training can achieve it all. Engagement training effectively creates a strong drive in your dog for what he loves most…YOU! This is a process and results in a deep connection between you and your dog that makes skill development easier, more fun and deeply seated.  We use treat rewards, toy rewards and the reward of partnership to achieve this deep bond that results from engagement. Our classes are fun for owners and dogs and we celebrate the progress of each team on their own merit. All of our training is based on whole science, is not compulsory or permissive.

 

 

What To Bring

  • 6 foot leash
  • Bait / treat bag with your dog’s favourite treats cut into small pieces
  • Indoor shoes are mandatory (sandals, open toed shoes, or open back shoes are not allowed due to safety concerns)

 

Missed Classes

If you miss a class, we usually do not have time to get you caught up during the next class as this takes away from the class time of the other students. It is best to have a private catch up class, it can be arranged with your instructor at $25.00 (plus GST) per missed class. Please contact your instructor as soon as possible to book one. It is sometimes possible to have you attend a different class if there is room and advanced warning is given.
