Which Class Should I Take?

I'm looking for a fun outlet for my dog's energy.


Your dog can learn a dance routine with you in Canine Freestyle, jump, climb, and crawl in Dog Parkour, or take obedience training to the next level in Rally Obedience. These classes are all great ways to bond with your dog while burning some excess energy. After all, a tired dog is a good dog!




My dog is fearful, anxious, and/or reactive towards people or other dogs.


Control Unleashed (CU) and Behavior Adjustment Training (B.A.T.) classes teach valuable skills for living with a fearful or reactive dog. In CU, you can learn a variety of skills to help your dog remain calm while facing their triggers. In B.A.T., you will practise managing your dog's reactivity while on a walk.




I would like to compete with my dog in a sport.


Canine Freestyle, Dog Parkour, and Rally Obedience are all sports that your dog can earn titles in. If attending competitions with your dog seems a bit intimidating, you can compete in Parkour from your own home! Parkour titles are earned by taking videos of your dog completing obstacles and submitting them online.




My dog barks and lunges at dogs, people, bikes, etc. on walks.


Behavior Adjustment Training (B.A.T.) is a class designed to teach both you and your dog valuable skills for walking with a reactive dog. You will learn to recognize early warning signs that your dog is uncomfortable, and your dog will learn a safer way to react to their triggers.




I want to give my dog a solid foundation to become confident and well-adjusted.


The Control Unleashed (CU) class helps your dog learn valuable life skills such as self control and staying calm in the face of things that may frighten or excite them. Dogs are slowly exposed to common triggers in a safe and rewarding enviroment, helping them learn appropriate reactions.
