“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 as well as teaching the dog that pressure announces positive things.

If you’re looking for basic training, you’re in the wrong place. We don’t want you to spend your money on group classes that won’t get you to where you want to be. Anyone can teach a puppy to sit for a treat.
Our training programs are UNIQUE and we will get you the dog of your dreams.

Want to take your dog anywhere?
Whether you like camping, hiking, or chilling at a patio in a more concrete jungle, our training packages are perfect for every canine and their handler.

Want a dog who listens to you?
A dog that is happily obedient?
A dog who can be trusted off leash, and walks well on leash?
A well behaved dog when guests come to visit, or one you can bring to family dinners?

We are here for you to get you where you want to be with your dog.

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 (dog has bitten a human)— 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.

Board and Trains

Our most efficient program to get the results you want. Our unique board and train program not only provides the benefit of professional training for your dog in our home environment, but it also gives you all the training YOU need with unlimited follow up support, access to workshops, Ottawa’s only K9 club, our 46 acre private fenced dog park and more.
Worried about being away from your dog for 3-6 weeks?
In most cases, we will send your dog home with you for the weekend after a mini lesson so that you can slowly start to implement the training (aka lifestyle change) and inform us of any trouble zones.

“Ted did BNT with Carolina and has made so much progress - he listens, understands rules, and the best part, now has an off switch! Being a well behaved dog allows him to come on even more adventures with us which makes both Ted and I happy.”

Private Lessons

Our customized private lessons take place either at our property in Dunrobin, your home or local dog friendly retail locations. Contrary to group classes, in our private lesson package, we are able to focus solely on you and your dog. This allows us to target specific skills and behaviours you want or need to work on with your dog while also working at a personalized pace for optimum success. We are able to add real life distractions and practice training out in the real world, as opposed to a sterile group class environment. There is no set lesson length or number of sessions as we are results oriented. We work with you to get the goal you set out at the beginning of training.
