Behaviour Consultations

 

FEARFUL/REACTIVE DOG PROGRAM: We are specialists in working with fearful or reactive dogs. Let our 20 years of experience aid in easing your dog's fear and anxiety to live a better life. The first session is always 1 hour, follow up lessons are 30 minutes.

Reactive dogs will be exposed only to professionally trained calm decoy dogs in a controlled environment to start, then the family is given direction on how to integrate the training to the 'real world' on the walk.­ Follow up growly dog tricks classes are offered to graduates of the program that could benefit from more controlled exposure in a new environment.

Agility (Puppy/basic recommended. Dogs must be 1 year of age)

FUN AGILITY classes

Keep your dog's mind stimulated with recreational agility classes at a beautiful heated indoor facility with In Dogs We Trust! There are so many benefits of enjoying agility including:

Confidence: Courage is a muscle. Learning to overcome obstacles builds trust with the handler and confidence in the dog. Great for shy dogs!
Focus: Practicing a skill that is FUN for the dog teaches the dog to enjoy working with the handler and increases the bond and focus for every day obedience.
Mental stimulation and exercise: Dogs need a job. (Or a hobby) Agility can be like soccer or gymnastics for your dog. Having a "job" can decrease hyperactivity or issues that arise when your dog finds his own job.

Group Classes


Puppy Classes (8 weeks - 5 months)

Positive experiences are critical for socializing a puppy to become a well adjusted adult free from fear or reactivity issues. In these dog training classes with other people, children and puppies, your pup will be socialized through supervised play sessions as a professional trainer shows you how to foster confidence and appropriate play.

According to the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour, the recommended time to start is as early as one vaccination. A well run and sanitized puppy class is not the same as an off leash park. Preventing behavioural issues and starting your puppy off on the right paw will make a huge difference in having a well behaved adult!
AVSAB Position Statement On Puppy Socialization

Training in a group environment is fun for both the dog and handler and teaches your puppy to listen under distraction. Through our positive motivational methods, let us teach you how to motivate your dog so that he wants to learn and enjoys training. While we offer high levels of obedience training, our puppy program is geared towards having a wonderful and calm family pet, not an obedience competitor. Our exercises are based on calm, impulse control, greeting others with manners, teaching focus, walking well on leash, and relaxing on a mat.

Located right inside the city of London Ontario, our group and private dog training classes are all taught by an instructor with extensive dog training experience and you’ll receive written handouts with each class.

Curriculum

In this class we teach everything you ever thought that you wanted your puppy to know including; crate training, house training, puppy mouthing, self control, fading the treat lure and using environmental rewards, appropriate play in dogs and more! Obedience exercises include teaching your dogs to focus on you, sit/down/stand on verbal cue or hand signals, leave it, walking on a loose leash, drop it, coming when called and stay.
