Our Socials are a great chance to let you dog socialize and burn off excess energy in an indoor location. They are on Saturday mornings prior to regularly scheducled classes, and we also have extra Socials around holidays and when the weather is nasty. Cost per dog per social is $10, cash only.
Come join the fun and let your dog make new friends while they play with old ones! Please note this is not a daycare service; owners are to stay while their dogs play. If you cannot make it, please let us know as soon as possible as there is usually a wait list. Please remember to bring cash as e-transfers will no longer be accepted for Socials.
Due to popularity, the Socials will now be registered events, not drop in, and registration will be confirmed. Please understand that we keep the list below as up to date as possible, but we will sometimes receive a rush of registrations and a Social may fill up before we have a chance to update the website.
The following dates and times are full. These dates will still show on the registration form, and selecting them will place you on the wait list. You will be contacted if a spot opens up for you.
Prerequisites: Dogs must be fully vaccinated and not have any behaviour issues that may result in injury to people, dogs, and/or property.

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)
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.
Cost & Payment
All classes are $225.00 (plus GST) and payment is required to hold your spot. Sessions are refundable up to 10 days before classes begin. A $50.00 administrative fee will be charged. Payments can be made by cash, cheque (made out to Twilla Boyce), or e-transfer (please contact for information).
