Puppy Classes
$190 +gst/6 sessions

After getting a puppy the immediate weeks following are the most important. Things like socialization, sights, sounds, smells and introduction to people and other dogs are key for a puppy’s development. If socialization is not done properly or not at all, it can cause serious behavioural issues in the future. So let us help you get your dog off to a great start! The class is a controlled environment where your puppy will be able to learn social skills with other people and other puppies. We will cover proper introductions and proper ways to play. These social skills will help them easily overcome future issues and prepare them for your adventure together. The class will also cover basic house manners such as polite greetings, chewing, nipping as well as basic obedience skills such as sit, down and loose leash walking.

Due to COVID-19 all Puppy Classes will be done in a small group training setting with a maximum of 5 per class, and only 1 handler per family. Hand Sanitizer will be available as you walk in through the front door. Please do not attend class if you are not feeling well.

Puppies must be 10 weeks -6 months old and have at least one set of vaccinations.

Basic Obedience Classes

$190 +gst/6 sessions

Basic obedience classes teach you the fundamentals of an obedient dog and give you the foundations of positive reinforcement training. Teaching younger dog obedience will help with impulse control and hyperactivity; the end results being a more controlled, well behaved dog.  This course will introduce you to food lures, how and when to use them and how to successfully wean your dog from treats once the behaviour is learned. You will also learn how to effectively use a clicker to help with training. Using these skills, you will learn how to train your dog to sit, stay, down, heel, come, loose leash walk and focus. For dogs aged 6 months and up.

Due to COVID-19 all Basic Obedience Classes will be done in a small group training setting with a maximum of 5 per class, and only 1 handler per family. Hand Sanitizer will be available as you walk in through the front door. Please do not attend class if you are not feeling well.

Rocket Recall
$120 +gst/4 sessions

Do you want your dog to have the Rocket Recall? Having a Rocket Recall means your dog will come when you call him/her, everytime! It means no more having your dog ignore you at the park or beach and no one losing your voice as you repeat “come” over and over. Having a Rocket Recall also means keeping your dog safe by having the ability to redirect them from dangerous distractions (cars, cliffs, unfriendly animals). This class is for dogs who have taken a group class with us or another positive reinforcment trainer and is dog friendly. Note this class will take place in our Ladner facility but also in various local Ladner parks.

For dogs 6 months and up who have Basic Obedience.

WILL RESUME SPRING 2021

Reactive Dog Class
$230 +gst/6 sessions

Does your dog bark/lunge uncontrollably at other dogs, and people? Or get stressed and/or upset at every day noises and situations? Don’t worry, these issues can be solved and this class is for you! Reactive dog class will help you understand why your dog is reactive and how to help change this behaviour. You will learn how to lower stress in your dog, build calm responses, teach alternate behaviours to reactivity and reinforce the absence of reactivity. This class will teach you distraction techniques, redirection, behaviour thresholds, focus and, most important, confidence in the handler. You will also be introduced to the training equipment needed and how to properly use it.

This is a smaller class due to the higher need of one on one instruction. Reactive Dog classes are tailored to your dog and your needs. First class is for owners only.

For dogs 6 months and up.

*All classes are taught by Head Trainer, Andrew Richards
