“Genuine training is about freedom. Freedom for both ourselves and our dogs to enjoy each other , enhancing our relationship by allowing their potential to blossom.”-Monks of New Skete
Our training philosophy:
We are motivational positive first dog trainers. We are well versed in a variety of training methods and tools from clickers to remote collars and we understand that each dog is an individual that will respond to training differently. We have a solid understanding of canine learning theory and we are always striving to learn more by attending workshops, seminars, shadow programs and conferences by the industry’s leading professionals around the world. Read more about our qualifications & certifications here.
We focus on motivation, clarity, consistency & timing before using any pressure during training.
We work with all types of dogs-whether they are working dogs, competition dogs or family pets, we have experience with them all! We deal with all behaviour issues with the exception of human aggression— we will refer you to one of our amazing colleagues who specialize in it. Our specialty is teaching dogs to be reliable off leash and to make good choices for real world situations. We also have amazing puppy packages that will start you and your puppy off on the right paw. We are passionate about sport and performance dogs and we compete with our own dogs in various sports such as competition obedience, barn hunt, scent detection, rally obedience, tricks, and agility.

Ultimate Obedience Board and Train
This is our most popular training package. Getting the dog of your dreams doesn’t have to be impossible.
If you want a VERY well trained dog that you can take anywhere, this is the package for you.
Your dog will stay in our home for approximately 3-4 weeks while we train and socialize them.
This package will get your dog off leash trained and they will reliably understand place command, sit, down, loose leash walking, recall, kennel up etc. Your dog will be socialized with people and other dogs extensively as well as partake on field trips to practice their skills in public settings. This is the most efficient path to getting your Ultimate Dog!
Customized training can be included at no additional cost (ie. competition prep, treadmill training, swimming lessons, retrieval training etc). This program is tailored to you and your dog’s individual needs.
We include private training sessions with you so that you can learn to implement the training as well as ongoing support so that you can maintain your results. We also include lifetime access to our training pack walks and group classes that take place biweekly throughout Ottawa so you can maintain all your training. We will troubleshoot any issues you may have while you practice your dog’s new skills with other people and dogs.

Ultimate Obedience Privates
This package involves personalized training sessions in your home spread out over a period of time.
That main difference between the board and train and the private lessons is that in the lessons, you must do the work and put in the repetitions. If you are a busy person, this may not be the package for you.
Typically, clients need 4-6 sessions depending on their goals or the issues they are dealing with. Sessions are usually spaced out between 1-3 weeks so that you have time to apply what you’ve learned and get the repetitions in. If you don’t do the work, we cannot proceed with the next lesson.
This package includes all the items listed in the board and train.
The private lesson package ranges from $900-$1200 plus HST.
