Dog Training Classes

Dog Training Classes Offered

Agility Classes

Dog Agility is the king of dog sports and often referred to as the most fun a dog can have – leaping over a variety of jumps, tipping a see-saw, zig zagging through a series of upright poles, negotiating a narrow dog-walk or zooming through tunnels. To a dog, an agility field is a doggy amusement park. Whether you’re looking for a venue where your dog can burn off some excess energy in a safe, constructive manner, or simply want to spend some “quality time” with your dog, agility training offers amusement and challenges for both the dog and handler often turning an unruly friend into a willing and appreciative teammate!

River

Adopted 2017

We changed Chloe’s name to River! She responded to it from the moment we’ve called her that and her recall is coming along so well! It helps that she is very food motivated. She’s learned to shake both paws and give a high 10, spin, sit, wait, and lay down. Her favourite thing to do is run, and man is she fast! Her second favourite thing to do is play with her sister Ellie Mae! They tucker each other out every day! On walks, Ellie’s bloodhound nose points out all the best smells and River always wants to sniff it too. We think she is very happy here in her new home she certainly looks it! Thanks so much for helping us add River to our family!

Meet. Adopt. Love.
