GROUP OBEDIENCE CANINE ESSENTIALS SERIES

The CANINE ESSENTIALS group class is suitable for dogs as young as 4 months old, adolescent and adult dogs, and dogs who are working towards becoming a therapy dog (St. John Ambulance), or a service dog, (Vancouver Island Compassion Dogs).

Dog training isn’t about trying to correct, inhibit or STOP a behaviour. Dog training is about TEACHING and growing the skills needed to behave effectively and go through the world feeling great! This class is all about teaching your dog how to behave in real life everyday situations.

• Greet other dogs with grace and avoid tension.

• Greet people with 4 on the floor and stop jumping on you and guests.

• Sit, down, and stay, even when there are distractions.

• Loose leash skills among distractions.

• Come when called.

• Leave It and impulse control.

• Fluency and reliability.

• Canine enrichment and building a bond with play.

• Proper use of food and how to avoid treat dependency.

Online Education

Our online education is where we teach you about how dogs learn, and the theory behind the lessons, in the comfort of your home instead of the classroom where you are already multi-tasking. The Canine Essentials is much more than a 6-hour obedience class and it begins with a training plan that you can start with your dog today!

Each week we send you step-by-step training guides of the class topics that you can start teaching your dog at home as well as weekly training goals so you get the most out of the class. You can download, save, and share these handouts with your whole family so everyone is consistent and training becomes a lifestyle in which every moment is a teaching moment.

In the CANINE ESSENTIALS class there are dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages, who are learning basic obedience skills, working towards making those skills reliable among distractions such as other dogs and people. Maximum of 8 dogs in each class.

PRICE OF CANINE ESSENTIAL 6-WEEK CLASS: $250

TRAINING SOLUTIONS FOR THE HYPER HOUND

Does your dog burst into excitement or bark at the sight of other dogs or people with no hopes of getting their attention?

Or perhaps your dog is shy or overwhelmed in a group environment?

Fear, anxiety, frustration, and excitability can impede your dogs’ ability to learn and can develop into frustration and reactivity. We want to set you and your dog up for success and ensure that you have the right tools and a low-stress learning environment. If your dog is fearful, anxious, hyper, or you cannot gain your dog’s attention in the proximity of distractions, we recommend booking a Private Consultation prior to registering for a group class. Your trainer will recommend either continued private training or to join the Canine Essentials group class with tools to build focus, Whichever path will be the most successful for you and your dog.
