What Clever Canine can do for a dog owner like YOU!

We’re all staying home to keep healthy, but you still live with your dog and you need training now! Check out our virtual coaching and classes. 

 

Give your dog a job!

Nosework is the job your dog dreams about at night. Well, that, and chasing bunnies.

It’s easy to start and train; can be done anywhere, anytime; and is the perfect exercise for dogs of any size, temperament or physical ability.

Now going virtual! Sign up today for a dog that can search for 3 target odors in 6 weeks.

 

Train your dog in a fun group setting

Group classes are made for you if you prefer a community vibe when it comes to training. A positive atmosphere, with people-friendly dogs, and other dog-friendly people means learning is fun. It doesn’t hurt that classes are budget-friendly too.

Coach you in private sessions

Some dogs and people(!) do better with private training. Private coaching is the best way to uncomplicate your training through:

  • flexible scheduling
  • working at a self-directed pace
  • individual attention on your needs

Every private program starts with a free phone consultation. And now, until the end of April your follow-up video consultation is FREE. Help me iron out the technical glitches and get training advice all at the same time!

We have found a marked improvement in both our, and their behaviour. We have had a couple of instances, but we are finding now, that they are walking better without me stressing about other dogs  – so thank you for our Saturday session that little while ago, we have 2 happier dogs and 1 less stressed out owner!

I was chicken at first to let Rolo off leash at the park. But for 3 days in a row things have gone fabulously well. Today he did a recall from across the length of the soccer field, at full speed! I would never have had the guts to try this without our training, so thank you. Now Rolo gets a bit more tired out before his day and I’m meeting many dogs and their humans in our neighbourhood. Thank you!

Les and I want to let you know that following your advice has done wonders for Frederick.  We were able to take him with us to the Okanagan for Thanksgiving with friends, and he was the life of the party – curious, playful and loving all the attention he received.  Another success story for you, and a great gift for us both – he is as close to me as he is to Les, and I am thrilled!
