Practical Training for the Real World
We offer practical training for dogs of all ages and levels. All training is done using science-based force free methods. Through private training your dog will learn how to walk nicely on leash, have manners around food and toys, behave in crowded areas, settle when asked, focus in distractions, come when called and more! We place a big focus on interactive play and mental work and we love to teach tricks too! As part of your lessons you will also learn how dogs learn and what your dog is really thinking, which is an essential part of building a successful relationship.
After a few classes with us, you will feel confident about your dog’s training and ability to listen no matter what!

Creating a Behaviour Management Plan
We strive to overcome bad habits and challenging behaviours by helping you understand how your dog thinks and feels. Common behavioural problems include reactivity, separation anxiety, nuisance barking and resource guarding. We will first assess the issues to find the underlying problems and then work with you to correct them using science-based positive reinforcement methods. We will then devise a training management plan to get you on the right track! You will also learn to read your dog’s body language, an important step in your dog’s recovery that is often overlooked!
Give Your New Puppy the Best Start!
Our private puppy classes will teach you everything you need to know to give your newest family member the best start! Classes can start as soon as you bring your puppy home, or even just before to help you prepare for their arrival. Click here for more information on what to expect from our puppy program.
Private Dog Walks
Dog walks are an add-on service for current training clients. They can be a useful addition to behavior management and dogs learning leash or social skills. Your dog will get additional one-on-one time with Jo, to ensure faster results. You will also receive updates from Jo following each walk, to help you keep on track with your dog’s progress. We also offer canine fitness sessions, which are great for high energy dogs! See our rates for more information.
