Schedules: Are You Game?

* Classes will be postponed on any stat holidays or the weekends of a stat holiday, and resume the following week.


Game On!


Do you struggle with your dog when outside? Then this class is for you! This is one of our most popular programs. Over the next 6 weeks we’re going to share with you the games and strategies that will help reshape your dog’s brain, so they make better decisions. Like not chasing that pesky squirrel, resisting picking up stuff while out on walks or going crazy when they see another dog!

This course is all done through games-based concept training and you can play these games with any age and breed of dog. The best thing is that they are fun and adaptable to the individual dog! Our program is built on the games developed by Absolute Dogs in the UK.

So how does this all work? The games work on concepts such as impulse control, calmness, disengagement from the environment, engagement with you, proximity (hanging out with you), focus, working in arousal (when they’re excited), bringing their arousal level down, and much more. We'll also share with you the science behind how and why the games work to produce real-life results.

You will need to bring your dog's bed, mat or elevated bed to this class.

Spectators are allowed at our Hwy 7 location, but they must remain outside of the fenced training area. Please feel free to bring a chair. Spectators are not allowed at our Ajax location.

Prerequisite: Dogs must be friendly around other dogs.

Course Fee: $231.00 (+ taxes)     Length: 6 weeks

Stress Free Walks


Why is it so hard for our dogs to walk nicely with us? Because it’s just not fun! Squirrels are fun, rabbits are fun, things that move are fun! Another dog coming towards them maybe fun or may be worrying. It’s all a question of what your dog is reacting to. Is it the environment or you? The goal is that they react to you instead of what’s happening around them.

In this 6 week program, we'll give you the tools and knowledge through games based concept training so that we create more stress free walks! This program works on disengagement from the environment, engagement with you, value in proximity, focus on you, flexibility, confidence (this is one many dogs lack and the reason why they react to other dogs while out on a walk), optimism and more. The games work on on reshaping your dog's brain so they want to hang out with you instead of the environment. We'll also share with you the science behind how and why the games work to produce real-life results.

Off Leash Freedom


Wouldn't it be great if your dog chose to constantly check-in with you rather than having to call them to come? Wouldn't it be great if your dog chose to hang out with you within a 50 ft radius rather than taking off and then not coming when you call them?

In this 6 week class we'll give you the tools and knowledge through games based concept training so that your dog learns to make great choices. We'll also share with you the science behind how and why the games work to produce real-life results.

This program works on work on disengagement (being able to be recalled off of something), engagement with you (checking in voluntarily), working in arousal (being able to disengage from something exciting or in the distance), value in proximity (not taking off into the abyss) and more. This course works on reshaping your dog's brain so they don't venture far from you and constantly check back in.

You will need to bring your dog's bed, mat or elevated bed to this class.

Spectators are allowed at our Hwy 7 location, but they must remain outside of the fenced training area. Please feel free to bring a chair. Spectators are not allowed at our Ajax facility.
