Dog Training Classes:
BASIC OBEDIENCE: This class is geared for the dog that has just graduated from puppy class, or for the dog that has not had any formal training. We cover loose leash walking, sit, down, stay, and recall using real life scenarios. This teaches your dog self control, how to be polite around other dogs and people, and gives you more reliability in the real world. This class is open to dogs 5 months of age or older. Each class is 1 hour and runs for a total of 6 weeks.
STARTING SATURDAY JULY 27, 12:00PM IN VANCOUVER
STARTING TUESDAY AUGUST 6, 7:30PM IN VANCOUVER (Class full)
INTERMEDIATE OBEDIENCE: For the dogs that have completed basic obedience, this class will expand their repertoire of knowledge. We focus on refining the basic skills, while introducing more advanced obedience commands such as stands, finishes, the beginning of off leash work, and greater challenges for the dogs. The class will cover behaviours on cue at a distance with increasing distractions, instant recalls away from distractions, and advanced impulse control exercises. Please call for more information regarding to start dates.

REACTIVE DOG CLASS: Do you find you are unable to walk by another dog on the street without your dog reacting? Is your dog lunging, barking, growling or just too overly excited? Is your dog taking you for a walk instead of the other way around? Then this may be the class for you. The Reactive dog class is open to dogs whose behaviour problems may prevent them from attending a regular group training class at the present time. This class will teach your dog to walk politely at your side, while ignoring other dogs you pass on the street. Your dog will learn self control, and how to feel more comfortable in different situations, and around other dogs or people. You will gain new skills to avoid or manage the triggers that were once unpredictable. The result will be a calm and confident handler, and a much more relaxed canine companion.
