Congratulations on your decision to train your dog! 
It is one of the most valuable, fulfilling experiences you will have with your pup.

Training your dog doesn't mean teaching him clever tricks so he can perform for you (although that is also tons of fun and teaching him obedience first will only make teaching tricks easier).  Training your dog means teaching him to be a respectful, well-mannered member of your household who is a joy to have around, and whom you can take anywhere with you.  Isn't that why you got a dog in the first place?

Our Novice Obedience Course is going to teach you how to teach your dog to have manners and to look to you as his leader and his best friend. Once you have that relationship with your dog, the sky's the limit!

 

Small Group Puppy Classes
- 4 weeks

 

Scientific studies have conclusively shown that the first 16 weeks of a dog's life are significant in determining his behaviour as an adult.

Our puppy classes are designed for dogs aged 10 weeks to 16 weeks.  

You will learn how to better communicate with your puppy and how to teach them so they understand.  Your puppy will develop their confidence and self control. Everyone will have fun.

This program will also help you and your puppy to transition to our Novice Obedience Course

Next Level Obedience Training

for dogs who have trained with us previously​​

This next-level, advanced obedience dog training will help instill deeper trust in both you and your dog. Confidently take your dog anywhere, knowing that they’ll listen to your commands a look to you for guidance.

Once your dog has learned the basic commands it’s time to prove them.  That means helping your dog to understand that he must focus on his handler and what's being asked of him regardless of what other distractions are around.

In our Next Level Distraction Proofing class we put our dogs in real-life situations and ask them to perform all the commands they learned in Novice Obedience.  Sit/Stays, Down/Stays or Place commands while strange people and strange dogs walk past, focus on the handler while walking past other dogs, ignore the children playing in the park when they're on command, are all examples of the work we do.  We'll also spend time in For Pup Sake's training field doing long line work and further distraction work.


Your dog's training isn't complete until you have distraction proofed so let us help you with that.
