Group classes

Mia IMG_3070Small group classes in puppy socialization and training, basic through advanced manners, tracking, search and scent discrimination and sheep herding are offered. We also offer the CKC “Canine Good Neighbour” test.

Private Training

Private training is available for dogs of all ages in manners, scent sports, and herding. This is a good choice for someone whose schedule does not allow for group classes or who simply prefers to train one on one.

Behavior Consulting

Private appointments are available for behavioral work.  If you and your dog are struggling with your dog’s anxiety, reactivity to other dogs, people or other things, distress over being alone, or other behavioral issues, then private behavior work is the best option. We have a team of dogs  here trained and ready to help with reactivity issues in other dogs.

Day Training

option for people who may not have the time to do this or cannot train their dog for other reasons.

Temperament Testing and Puppy Coaching

I have completed courses in temperament testing and puppy rearing including Your Litter A to Z and  Transformational Breeding and attended seminars in “Raising Brave Puppies…And Healthy Ones, Too” and “Transformational Puppy Rearing: Creating Dogs That Enrich People’s Lives”with Avidog International . The courses are extremely thorough incorporating the latest scientific research and decades of breeding experience by the presenters. I have the APET temperament testing package and experience administering it. The APET test very comprehensive. Testing and individual puppy training plans based on test results are part of the services offered.

Seminars

Classes in Keeping Your Pet Safe are held at Langara as part of general interest and as part of the Professional Dog Walker Certificate program.
