Welcome to Evolve Dog Training

We offer private & group dog and puppy training in Vancouver, Burnaby and the surrounding regions in the Lower Mainland.

We believe the foundation of training should be based on positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement is the process of giving a dog (or person!) a reward to encourage the behaviour you want, like getting a pay check for going to work. When we give our dogs a choice and the opportunity to respond in a positive way to their surroundings we can help them tremendously as they begin their journey with us.

As we get busier and our physical world gets denser, we start to ask a lot more of our dogs. Our homes become our dogs habitat and they try as best they can to live in our environment. We expect them to adjust to our busy lives, suppress what they were bred to do. Amazingly many dogs do just fine, however, some struggle and that is not surprising. Over the last few decades, we have made them our “pets” and they no longer have autonomy, freedom or choice. This is what we have come to  label “behaviour problems”. Let us help you recognize your dog needs, meet them where they are at and understand how to help them to be the best they can be. 

We use simple and practical skills to encourage your dog to make good choices and reward them when they do. We focus on cultivating positive experiences, so your dog grows up to be a well adjusted part of your family. It is our goal to help you develop a relationship with your dog you never dreamed possible.
