Private Training

Fully Customized Dog Training Options for Barrie and area


Picture this. It's a beautiful day, the sun is shining, you and your dog go out.....

  • Your dog walks with you and enjoys being with you, even though Sally squirrel is tempting her from the nearest tree

  • At one point, you stop to say hi to a neighbour, and your dog sits quietly and says hello politely

  • A fellow dog owner is across the street, you wave, smile and carry on, as does your dog

  • You stop to tie your shoe and your dog graciously waits for you

  • Loud trucks and busses pass and your dog walks as if nothing is happening

  • Now you're home, you have people coming over and your dog greets them without jumping

  • Later, you go for a hike, and your dog returns happily every time you call

  • Once you are at home, your dog chills with the family, happy and satisfied spending time and playing with the kids

Does this sound like fantasy? It doesn't have to, let us help!
