Puppy Pre-school


Puppy Preschool is for pups between 10 and 16 weeks of age as of the class start date, and has had their first set of vaccinations. If your pup is 4 months or older, please register them for Family Dog Beginners.

Puppy Preschool class is a great way to build confidence (for you and your pup) while learning the basics. This is the time, while your pup is very young, to do a lot of foundation work so that they develop good habits. We’ll show you some fun exercises to do with your pup to build a positive and trusting relationship.

Puppy Preschool helps your puppy to learn the meaning of the words sit, down, and stand. We start the foundation work for walking nicely on leash, coming when called, impulse control, and disengagement from distractions. We also discuss nipping, chewing, whining, barking, toileting, handling, basic grooming and the importance of schedules. You will also receive a free copy of our Puppy Preschool Training Videos.

Prerequisite: Between 10 and 16 weeks of age as of start of class with first set of vaccinations.

Course Fee: $150.00 (+ taxes)     Length: 4 weeks

Family Dog - Beginners


This very popular course covers the basics of dog obedience using a combination of positive marker reward based and concept games based training.

This course includes teaching your dog to walk nicely on leash, learning to stay while in a sit and a down, coming when called, impulse control, not jumping up, and learning to ignore various types of distractions. You will also receive a free copy of our Family Dog Beginner Training Videos.

Prerequisite: For dogs 4 months and older as of the class start date. If you have a toy breed under 20 weeks, Puppy Preschool is an option.

Rescue Ready


As there are many unknowns and things to consider when adopting a rescue, more and more rescue organizations require those adopting a rescue to acquire 1 on 1 training within the first week of adopting their dog. This is where we can come to the rescue!

We offer a Rescue Ready 30 minute training session which can be done during the day at our Ajax location or virtually via Zoom. This training session covers Expectations, Safety, Potential Separation Anxiety, Socialization and includes Relationship Building Games. We also discuss specific concerns which may require additional training.

If you would like to set up a Rescue Ready training session, please email the office.

Prerequisite: A New Rescue

Course Fee: $50.00 (+ taxes)     Length: 30 minutes
