Online Training Classes

In light of the current recommendations from Alberta Health Services, we’re taking our training classes online! Through our Virtual Classroom, we’ll focus on developing a strong bond between you and your dog based on trust and positive interactions. Each week, our trainers will guide you through a variety of exercises for you to do with your dog, give you feedback in the moment and provide you with coaching for common behaviour concerns.

Our training team is committed to providing you with valuable virtual training and connection through these difficult times we’re facing. In addition to coaching you’ll receive through online classes, all participants are encouraged to send in videos and questions to their trainer between classes.

Puppy Basics

The more positive experiences your puppy has with people and different environments, the more confident they will be in the future.

In addition to 4 virtual classroom sessions, we’ll also provide you with an online orientation to watch before class, as well as access to an online resource library that covers everything from crate training and housetraining, to equipment recommendations and enrichment ideas.
