Dan offers three
programs: Obedience Training,
Residency Training, and single lesson Behaviour
Modification. Obedience Training and Behaviour
Modification are done as private lessons in the comfort of a client's
home. Also, you may wish to consider the convenient Residency Training. Have your dog trained when he is boarded!
Obedience Training can typically be completed in
five lessons, at the pace of one lesson every week or two. The commands taught during the obedience program
include: heel, automatic sit, sit-stay, down, bed, and recall
(come). Do you have two dogs you want to be
trained? Dan offers some of the most competitive two-dog pricing
Behaviour Modification includes anything from an
intro puppy class to working with severe aggression problems. Almost every
dog has a behavioural problem or two, whether it joined your family as a puppy
or as an older dog. Most issues can be resolved in one to three lessons.
In some cases, obedience training is necessary in addition to
counter-conditioning. If you have a puppy, learning the proper ways of
establishing a structured pack-unit from the start prevents most behavioural
issues from occurring.
Residency Training is offered for people who
would like to board their dog and have it worked with, either on behavioural
issues or obedience training. It is nice to go away, and when you return,
your dog is better behaved. Daily or weekly rates available.

Residency Training: Board your dog and have
general obedience or specific behavioural issues worked on. It is not
suggested for first time dog owners, since training the owners is more work than
training the dog!
Boarding and Daycare: Going away for a night, a
week, or just the day, consider boarding your dog with Dan. The dogs play
with each other in a safe, structured, fully supervised environment. Has
your dog been kicked out of other daycares because they can't handle him?
Try him here! Baths and nails available upon request. A Trial
overnight may be necessary for first time boarders. Baths $15-30; nails

Tia's Tiny Dog Boarding: Separate from
those bouncy, overly playful large dogs. Tia will love your little tyke,
take them for a few walks, and they will live with the family. It's a
happy place! Drop off and pick up times are the same as listed above.
