CLASS INFORMATION

If you have imported a dog/puppy from outside Canada or the US, please DO NOT attend classes until you've had the dog for over 2 weeks with no signs of illness.

This is to allow for an initial bonding period and health guarantee before attending class. You must have has the dog home and with no signs of illness for at least 2 weeks before the 1st class. If you signed up for a class, but your dog shows signs of illness please do not attend class the next class, and contact us right away.

If your dog barks excessively around other dogs (and cannot easily be stopped with a toy or food) we ask that you please contact us to schedule a private session before joining a group class, so that we can work on the barking before joining a more exciting group class. While we understand your dog may just be excited or nervous around the other dogs, if the dogs are constantly barking it is unfair to the students who cannot hear the instructor, and the instructor who has to try to talk over barking dogs.

Need help with this? Let us know, we're happy to help!

 

If your dog is reactive (i.e. lunges, barks etc towards other dogs and/or people), and requires a personal bubble of space from other dogs or people, we will accommodate your dog as long as you have previously or are currently working with a positive reinforcement trainer on your dog's reactivity, so that you are skilled at managing your dog in a group setting.

Need a trainer for this? Let us know! We are happy to help!
