Private/Semi-Private Dog Training ClassesView Details
Group classes aren’t always for everyone. Your schedule may be hectic, or you might have a disruptive or reactive pup who doesn’t do well in a group environment. Or maybe you and your friends or family would like to take a course together! Whatever the reason, private or semi-private classes may be the right fit for you, and we’re pleased to offer them.
Tailored to your dog's needs, our one-on-one sessions cover basic obedience, tricks, and agility at the CAHS’ Rehabilitation & Education Centre. Perfect for groups of friends or family seeking private classes, accommodating schedules and catering to dogs thriving in smaller groups. Additionally, behaviour consultations are available for puppies or dogs facing complex challenges, addressing issues like reactivity, fearfulness, and aggression with personalized plans from experienced consultants.
Behaviour ConsultationsView Details
Behaviour consultations are suitable for puppies or dogs who struggle with problem behaviours and complex challenges. Our experienced behaviour consultants will create a plan to help you manage and resolve issues like reactivity, fearfulness, separation anxiety, jumpy or mouthy behaviour, anxiety, resource guarding, and aggression.
