Why Take A Specialty Course?

Workshops allow you to deepen your understanding and upskill in a specific developmental area. Regular basic "obedience" classes can't provide the same type of in-depth learning opportunity for any one topic that a workshop can because normally there is a packed curriculum with many different skills to introduce. 

We've thoughtfully curated our workshop selections by focusing on key areas of training for both puppies and adolescent dogs that, in our experience, often results in widespread benefits for you and Fido.

Workshop Programs

Dog Obedience Classes in Calgary

     Puppy ABCs     

$99 +GST

PER COURSE

+ Three courses for puppies each focused on a different primary training "hot" topic 

Avert The Jump

There's a variety of reasons people wish their dog wouldn't jump on people. Dirty paws and nail scratches aside - it can become a safety issue if our once small puppy grows into a larger dog.

Learn proactive ways to get ahead and start building more desirable habits and set Fido up for future success.

Cooperative Care

Crates can have many uses. From travelling safely in a vehicle, to helping expedite house training, to providing a comfortable and secure place to rest, it can be worth taking the time to train your dog to love the crate.

Learn how to combine passive and active training techniques that can propel your dog to crate love town.

Building Crate Love

An often overlooked area of training that requires deliberate effort. Tolerance is not the goal when it comes to handling, grooming, invasive vet exams, etc. - we want dogs to be willing participants and love it! 

Learn how to teach your dog to love the nail clippers, being brushed, the vet, being restrained, and more!

+ Courses in this program are scheduled on a rotating basis

+ Each course runs for 2 weeks with one 45-min group training session per week
