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.

The course runs for one month.

The fee for all four sessions is $150 - payment is required to secure your place.  Signing a waiver is required.

Wednesday, May 10th 6:30pm - 7:30pm

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, halter; 4. Tricks; 5. Life situations: going to the vets, groomers, leaving your dog, crating your dog.

What you’ll need:

1. A dog who loves people and other dogs; 2. Treats; 3. A puzzle feeder such as a Kong, filled with your dog’ favourite; 4. And a fun outlook because we’re all about making training fun for everyone!
