A solid foundation for puppies or a great refresher for dogs who have had previous training. Also, a great introductory class for those considering more advanced levels of obedience training or competition.
Beyond basic obedience training, I will help you understand what you need to become a strong leader for your dog. As no two dogs are the same, you will gain a better understanding of who your dog is and what they need to develop into a well socialized, confident, well-mannered dog. My goal is to transfer my skills to you.
Small classes allow the opportunity to focus on you and your dogs individual needs. All training is done using a positive reinforcement philosophy.
Feeding, crate training, manners, greeting other dogs, keeping your dog safe, recall, basic obedience commands (sit, down, stay recall), space & boundaries, waiting & impulse control, avoiding separation anxiety, house training, leash skills and problem prevention will all be covered in this class.
For all classes you will need:
High value treats (cheese, meat)
A hungry dog (please do not feed before class)
6 foot leash
Your dogs favourite toy
Length: 5 one hour sessions
Rate:$325.00 + tax $341.25
Private training offers the curriculum of group training for puppies who are too young to join a group class, owners whose schedules conflict with group classes or a dog that is challenged by a group setting. It also provides an opportunity to work on specific training or issues and develop an individual plan for you and your dog.
LOOSE LEASH WALKING & RECALL
Location:Victoria International Education Uplands Campus 3461 Henderson
Times:8:30-9:30 and 9:45-10:45
Length: 1 hour for 6 weeks
Rate: $225 + tax(236.25)
Does your dog pull while on leash?
Do they lunge when passing other dogs?
Are they working for themselves instead of teamed up with you?
This class will help you achieve excellent leash manners and a solid recall. The goal is to provide you with the tools needed to become a strong leader. If you have a dog that is connected to you when they are on leash, then you will have more success when they are off leash. Training in a group provides the opportunity to work on obedience and social skills in an environment with different distractions. Having a better understanding of your dog will create a stronger bond. Through positive training you will develop a dog that values you over anything else.

Dogs love to work. A dog who is using its brain is happier and more confident. Training your dog in Advanced Obedience will take them to the next level and give you the ability to become a strong leader whether they are on or off leash. Through positive training you will develop a dog that values you over anything else. Your dog will love you for it.
Recall with distractions, advanced healing on and off leash, holding a down and standing stay with high distractions (other dogs chasing balls and toys, recalling away from playing dogs). Also, commands on the move, i.e. taking a down and standing stay command while in motion (chasing another dog or chasing a toy).
DAY TRAINING (For Obedience Training, Reactivity, Social Issues, Fear Issues or Rescue Dogs )
Rate: $180 + tax for 1 day
$150 + tax per day for package of 3 days
Whether you have a dog that is reactive, has been rescued, has social issues, is difficult to train or have a schedule that interferes with training, in house day training removes the barriers of having a confident, well trained dog.
Day training allows you to drop your dog off. They will be put through multiple short training sessions throughout the day. This method accelerates the rate of learning and produces great results. To help build confidence, your dog will be socialised in many different environments. At the end of the day the skills that the dog has learned will be transferred to you, the owner. Availability is limited so book ahead.
