Each of our Group Programs is designed to give your family access to a skilled Wizard (dog trainer), for your dog’s particular issues or goals. Since some dogs fit the description: ”Happy GO-Lucky” or mild… we can work with them in a Group setting and develop your family’s Foundation skills alongside other great dog parents. These programs focus heavily on Foundation skills: manners, leash, food, rewards, boundaries, and behaviours. These programs will be just the right amount of training for your “easy-going” dog, and owners who have a great deal of free time. If you are itching to be involved in the process and or considering our cost effective options, these programs will suit your family!

WE consider our clients part of our Dog Wizard Family and look forward to seeing all of our graduates at Group Class each week!

Therapy Preparation

The therapeutic value of dogs is undisputed in everyday life, which is why lending this energy to brighten the lives of those who are sick, elderly, or troubled in some way can be such a rewarding experience. Therapy dog work is one of the most incredible ways you can share the joy your dog gives you with others. Not every dog is suited for therapy work, but we can help you make this assessment and help you prepare you and your dog for therapy dog certification.

We have a monthly class which will prepare you in every way to become certified as a therapy dog and handler team so that you may go out to visit therapeutic facilities together. We are also lucky enough to be partnered with Paws for People Foundation, an organization that trains and places service dogs throughout the country, for anyone seeking more intense Service Dog training and certification.

Check our calendar and sign up for our next Therapy Dog Prep class so you and your beloved pooch can start spreading the love!

Are you anxiously awaiting a new baby and have the added stress of not knowing how your dog will react to the new family member? Well, we have a class that can help you prepare for this! Whether this your first baby or your dog’s first baby, we can help the new arrival be a smooth transition.

Socialization

Our socials are run for any of our clients who have been through our programs or for any of our Puppy Preschool graduates that are 6m and older! Our sole purpose for these socials is to improve social skills for dogs that are lacking in social graces ( don’t worry, any dog that is not great with others has a muzzle on, and only one non social dog is in the group at a time). For us to help these dogs they depend on solid Happy go lucky friends to show them the way! Our socials are run with structure in mind but also letting dogs be dogs. We feel it’s so crucial for young dogs to learn the skills to understand that not ever dog wants them all in their face. Learning how to have good manners with ALL kinds of temperaments may save your dog from harm in the real world. But mostly it’s a nice controlled safe play group for your pup! We like to take the opportunity to work on human social skills for our pups as well, like no jumping!
