Who knew that a pandemic would mean more new dogs and puppies then ever before! It’s been an interesting year and I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful owners and their dogs and puppies. I am really hopeful that the end is near and our new normal can begin again. Be safe, stay healthy and enjoy your times together with your family and furry animals.

We are running so many classes for Puppy Socialization that we are not putting them up on our calendar, please contact us for times and days. Puppy Manners classes run every Saturday from 11-Noon and from 12:15 -1:15 pm and some weekday classes. Pups between 11 and 20 weeks, after second set of shots, are welcome. These classes we show you how to prevent and manage unwanted behaviour like mouthing and jumping up and teach basics like sit and heel and come are also taught. These classes have start and finish dates, no drop in.

For puppies and older dogs we have group Basic Obedience classes or private one on one sessions in your home.  We have an assortment of classes that can fit almost everyone’s needs. Once your pups have some foundation skills we will be offering Rally Obedience, Tricks classes, Intermediate Fun and Games classes as well as our very popular out and about Ain’t Misbehavin’ classes. We also offer in home private sessions for working on behaviours specific to your needs.

No classes on holiday weekends. To hold a space for any classes, we require a 50% deposit refunds given one week in advance of start date. No refunds are given for missed classes.

Ain’t Misbehavin’ Out and About classes for street safety and recalls. Check the calendar for more details on our classes. Basic Obedience classes are a prerequisite. Now completed until the spring of 2022

In home privates can be scheduled anytime, I come to you to help with specific unwanted behaviours.
