Specialty Classes


Growly Dog Classes

Growly dog class is a specialized program geared specifically towards resolving reactivity (fear aggression). All dogs are kept at a safe distance, out of sight from each other, while we slowly decrease the gap over the course of the 6 weeks. Once your dog has completed the 6 weeks of structured exposure to specially trained calm dogs, you will be ready to start behavior modification on the street. Random encounters are significantly more stressful than a structured exposure, therefore the 6 week course is a great way to start working with your dog.

Week 1: Behaviour Modification theory for reactive dogs
Week 2-3 Working with reactive dogs
Week 4- Body Language Seminar (power point presentation)
Week 5-6 Working with Reactive Dogs
Private Consultation at Home to learn how to utilize the exercises in your own environment. (Private lessons are available on Saturdays or Daytime between 10-2:30pm))

$330+tax (372.50) 6 week semi-private program including Canine Body Language Seminar, 1 private Lesson, 3 dogs max, 2 trainers.

Private Lessons


Behaviour Consultations

Whether you have brought a new puppy into your home, want to work on a specific issue, do not have the time for classes or you have a serious behavioural issue, private lessons are a great choice for a personalized program!

As seen on our Televsion ShowDoggy House Calls’ We are specialists in serious behavioural issues, utilizing proven techniques recommended by the top behaviourists in the world. We modify behavior by changing the underlying emotion that is driving the behavior instead of suppressing the behavior with punishment-this provides a long term, dog friendly solution.

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!

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.

Basic Obedience (Aged 6 months+)

Do you have a rambunctious older puppy that gets over excited in public? Perhaps you have acquired a rescue dog that has not had much socialization or training, we can help!

Through our positive motivational methods, let us teach you how to train your dog so that you can enjoy him when you are out in public or have visitors come over. All group obedience classes are located right inside the city of London Ontario on a scenic location on the river at the London Middlesex Civitan Club. Our dog training instructors have extensive experience in dog training and dog behaviour and all lessons come with written handouts.
