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! 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 how and why the games work to produce real-life results.

Spectators are allowed to observe, but they must remain outside of the fenced training area. Please feel free to bring a chair.

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 class is run in a fully fenced outdoor facility. You will need to bring your dog's bed, mat or elevated bed to this class. Your dog will need a harness with both a front and back ring as well as a regular collar or head collar (gentle leader) and a double clip leash (or 2 leashes).

Spectators are allowed to observe, but they must remain outside of the fenced training area. Please feel free to bring a chair.

Off Leash Freedom


Recall is such an important skill, it impacts so many things – your dog’s safety, the relationship you have with your dog, preventing rehearsal of behaviour you don't want, the relationship you have with the people around you (maybe other people don't want your dog running up to them).
Having a 100% reliable recall could literally be the difference between life and death for your dog.

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.
