Come and learn how to effectively teach your dog some fun tricks and movie behaviours!  

All levels welcome!

Even if your dog knows a few tricks already we can expand on their existing tricks and teach them dozens of new tricks!

Learn different techniques for training including clicker training, shaping, targeting and luring.  Everything from rollover and shake-a-paw, to backing up walls into a 'pawstand,' and circling around you backwards!  This is a fast paced class open to all dogs 6 months old and above.  This class is energetic and we cover a lot of tricks;  you will need to practice at home during the week.   Perfect class for those who want a fun challenge for you and your dog!

If you would like to cancel or refund a class, we need to be notified at least 48 hours in advance of the first class.

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!


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!
