This program is a thorough introduction to the core obedience skills that you and your dog require for an effective relationship. Training techniques lean toward a reward-based approach, utilizing food, toys, and movement to motivate and reinforce behaviour. This program also focuses heavily on implementing structure and relaxation methods that foster peacefulness, improve impulse control, and build focus.


Classes are 1 hour long, once a week for 7 weeks. This course includes an extensive information booklet and weekly homework. You will also benefit from valuable one-on-one time with your trainer, due to the small class sizes (only 5 dogs per class!).
