Group Classes

Classes in Victoria BC for older puppies, out-of-control adolescents & adults (newly adopted or needing a refresher course).

At Clever Canine the focus is on making training a lot less frustrating and a lot more fun!

Classes start April 2024!


  • 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
  • You’ll get easy to follow handouts via a digital library. No need to take notes or trying to remember what your homework is for the week.
  • You’ll get e-mail access to me so that you can ask questions, get advice and discuss your dog’s progress.



Janet is a phenomenal, very positive trainer, and I can’t imagine navigating my older puppy’s exuberant adolescence without her classes!

She treats each dog as a smart, actively thinking individual. She tailors her advice to the specific needs of each dog, and explains her reasons very clearly. I have learned a tremendous amount listening to her advise others and talk about what each dog is experiencing, as well as from her support to me.

Her Fundamentals class helped me with my adolescent puppy hugely.

Fundamentals classes run for 5 weeks.

All classes include access to your digital homework library and video examples, so you’ll never be worried about what you were supposed to work on or feel left behind when you miss a class.

My young pup and I had a very positive experience in our training classes with Janet. We learned how to work together in cooperation using some fun games and good logic about how dogs learn.

My pup has responded very well to the strategies and techniques we learned in class. Thank you for a positive learning experience!

Great thing about Janet’s approach is that it’s practical and training the pooch to be a happy member of the household and well mannered in the community. In particular she reminded us to be aware of what the dog was thinking.

Great fun with great results.
