The next session will start on January 19, 2019 and end on February 9, 2019.

Essential Life Skills is a program offered by the Bow Valley SPCA focusing on teaching dogs and their human companion(s) the behaviours that create a positive and healthy relationship. The course will be held at the Carla Cumming Sojonky Adoption Centre from 6:00 PM to 6:50 PM for 4 weeks. The cost is $150. This course is for dogs 6 months or older.

Classes will be limited to 5 dogs and registration is on a first come first served basis.

Essential Life Skills classes will be scheduled approximately every six weeks. We will also be offering Enhanced Life Skills for graduates of the Essentials class and Ultimate Life Skills for rock star dogs that cannot get enough training.

Our dog training programs are designed to fit into an overall educational effort to help dog owners to have healthy and positive dog/people relationships. This effort starts with regular free seminars offered by the Bow Valley SPCA on “How To Choose A Puppy”. The next stage, and one encouraged by the Bow Valley SPCA is puppy socialization. The Canmore Veterinary Hospital and Bow River Veterinary Center offer complimentary classes to their clients.


Essential Life Skills

Want a dog who doesn’t jump all over your guests, and won’t try to steal your dinner off your plate? A dog who comes when called and doesn’t take you for a walk? And a dog who’s happy at the vets and the groomers? Then our Essentials Life Skills class is for you.

It’s designed for friendly adolescent and adult dogs who could use some help polishing up their manners. We teach the basic behaviors using fun exercises and games so that you can have a dog who is truly a joy to live with! We’ll also show you how to teach your dog a trick or two to impress your friends.

Here’s what we’ll cover

  1. Sit, down, stay, recall, touch/station
  2. How dogs learn
  3. All about gear: front clip harnesses, muzzles, haltis
  4. Tricks
  5. Life situations: going to the vets, groomers, leaving your dog, crating your dog.

What you’ll need:

  • A dog who loves people and other dogs.
  • Treats
  • A puzzle feeder such as a Kong, filled with your dog’ favourite
  • And a fun outlook because we’re all about making training fun for everyone!
