Class Descriptions

Getting Started: Obedience –  This is our introductory obedience class designed for dogs over 6 months of age (no age limit). This class will focus on basic obedience skills as well as work on some impulse control and challenges you may be facing in your ever day life. Whether your goal is to move into sports or to just have a companion you enjoy, this class will work towards getting you and your dog to become a great team.
Prerequisite: No previous experience required.

Just for Fun Tricks –  This four week class will work on a variety of fun tricks – tricks taught will be dependent on the skills of the dogs in the class.
Prerequisite: Dogs must have the ability to work well around other dogs.

Impulse Control – Impulse control is all about patience. Does your dog have issues with the following: jumping up, pulling on the leash, food grabbing, pushing through doors and gates? Or any other “pushy” behaviour? Then this class is for you! This class runs for four weeks.
Prerequisite: No previous experience required.  Open to dogs of all ages.
