Training Programs


Complete Dog

Imagine the dog that will have all your friends and family telling you that you have the most well behaved dog ever.  A dog that will listen to you reliably, walk politely beside you and behave around other people and dogs is a dog you will enjoy spending time with.  This is what we do, even for your dog.  This program is for the family who wants their dog to learn it all! This program includes 14 Obedience and Behaviour Commands trained to an Intermediate to Advanced level and comes with our money back guarantee!

  • 5 at our location, in home/public - these sessions allow us to work 1 on 1 without any distractions to make sure you have your core techniques and basics in place.  When you and your dog are ready, these sessions allow us to work out in the real world around distractions that you and your dog encounter on a regular basis.
  • 4 coaching calls with your trainer to use within 3 months of starting your program - no need to worry if you are doing it right or missing a step in the training process.  Your trainer is available between your scheduled lessons to get you and keep you on track.
