Why Rewards-Based Training Works


Fido is more likely to repeat a behaviour when they anticipate a pleasant outcome for themselves– whether you like that behaviour or not.

Encourages Healthy

Behaviour Development 

By teaching key habits and behaviours from an early age, you increase the likelihood of raising a well-adjusted and confident Fido who loves going anywhere with you.

Reduces Problematic Behaviours 

Dogs enjoy it!

You decrease the risk of creating or exacerbating stress while increasing Fido's enthusiasm and joy for learning alongside you.



Rewards-based puppy socialization and playtime helps Fido feel optimistic and build confidence while experiencing new things and practicing interaction skills.

Builds Relationship

Between Dog & Owner 

Fido is more likely to feel safe around you since good things happen in your presence. This can help decrease the tendency to be afraid of novelty as they grow older.

Start Your Personalized Training Plan

Designed for puppies 16 weeks and younger, our puppy courses help to establish healthy behaviours and patterns. By exposing your pup to new scents, sounds, and experiences at a young age, you will find they are more adventurous, confident, and social in new settings.

Behaviour Consulting  

Breaking a bad habit can be challenging. While it's common that some normal dog behaviours will frustrate us while raising Fido, fearful and/or aggressive behaviours are a call for help. We'll establish goals together and you'll receive customized strategies and coaching to tackle the problem.

Client Testimonials

dog obedience classes calgary

I am very choosy about my dog's care, and I felt very confident leaving my 2 dogs in Jodi's capable hands for in-home dog-sitting. The dogs were happy and relaxed when we returned, and she kept us posted about their activities and behavior. I especially appreciate her knowledge about dog behavior and training, and know that we can trust her judgement relating to the dogs, which is super important to us.
