We offer dog training classes or obedience training classes on the North Shore and North Vancouver. Small group classes ensure focused attention for you and your pup. We only use positive reinforcement training methods to guarantee the best learning experience possible.
Puppy socialization done right saves lives. Prevention of fear (which causes reactivity) is our goal. Yes, we teach sit, down, stay, leave it, drop it, recall etc. but most importantly we give you the skills to raise a socially confident dog you enjoy sharing your life with.
Marker training, sit, down, stay, intro to recall, leave it, wait, go to place, body handling, desensitization & more!
