Puppy and Companion Dog Training in Toronto

Private On-Site Sessions:

CPDT-KA Certified Trainer

Friendly, force-free, and humane methods for puppy and dog training in Toronto, Ontario.

We come to your home to start the training.

Your home environment helps you and your pet to be relaxed and comfortable, this creates the best possible learning experience.

We will review each session and advance at a pace you and your pet are happy with. Progressing through the program, the obedience level of the behaviours will be increased. Having a pet that listens to you inside your home and complies with cues is great, but we also need excellent responses outside. Taking what your pet has learnt inside your home, we will work outside at honing these learned skills with increased distractions.

Combination of trainer/client/pet sessions and trainer/pet only sessions available. Please contact us for details and fees.


Private dog training allows us to streamline programs to suit you and your dog’s needs. Our emphasis is on today’s “real life” companion dog training, making sure your pet is friendly to children, other dogs, and people. Our friendly training methods will create a positive bond between you and your dog; your pet will listen to you and work hard to please you.

Please contact us, briefly stating what training you are interested in. e.g. puppy training, basic obedience (good manners), advanced obedience or specific training issues. We will email you the correct “client information form” to fill out, after receiving your form back, a convenient date and time for the consultation will be arranged. Please scroll down for more information on puppy training.

The 1 ½ hour consultation explains how a dog thinks and learns, how to communicate effectively with your pet, outlining the program, dealing with your main issue and starting the training.

Some advantages of on-site training over group training:

Accurately assessing what you require from us, and what your goals are for your dog.

Busy people who require focused training for their dog have the advantage of flexible scheduling.

Help to build confidence with nervous or “skittish” dogs, with the aim of meeting other dogs and people in a friendly and confident manner.

Developing new cues or commands for special need dogs: Elderly, deaf and/or blind dogs etc, these will add safety and communication between you and your dog.

Dogs, like people, have individual personalities (temperaments). We design programs using friendly training techniques best suited for your dog.

Does your dog have a serious behaviour issue? Please see our “Behaviour Consulting Service”.   

Private training sessions are held “on site” which means; in your home, on the streets and in parks, where you want the training to pay off.

Private training combination of trainer/client/pet sessions and trainer/pet only sessions available. Please contact us for details and fees.

Puppies Private Training

 Pre-Puppy Counseling available. Please see Counseling services page.

Training programs can start for puppies as young as 8 weeks old. This will give these young tykes a head start, before getting all their shots, (also help to keep you from getting really stressed out).

Seriously, exposure to many different sounds, surfaces and situations as well as socializing with people and dogs in safe conditions is critical at this early stage.

What your puppy learns in the next few weeks will stay with your puppy for the rest of his/her life.

We will deal with all the common puppy issues such as: toilet training, chewing, nipping, jumping up etc.  Work on all the basic good manners obedience skills.
