We offer classes for precocious puppies, out-of-control adolescents & adults (newly adopted or needing a refresher course).

At Clever Canine the focus is on providing the best Victoria has to offer in pet dog training.

  • Our classes are small – to allow for lots of individual attention and advice for you and your dog
  • The atmosphere is fun and relaxed to maximize your learning enjoyment
  • The whole family is welcome – everyone who will be living with your dog is invited to come and help train, producing a dog that responds reliably to every family member.  You’ll get easy to follow written materials, including a booklet written by Janet Parker. No need to take notes or trying to remember what your homework is for the week.
  • You’ll get free e-mail and phone access to your trainer so that you can ask questions, get advice and discuss your dog’s progress.
