Dog Behaviour: If you have a dog that displays any of the below behaviours, please contact us before registering.

  • Leash reactivity (barking/pulling/lunging on leash towards other dogs and people)

  • Aggression towards other dogs or people

  • Anxiety/Fear towards other dogs or people

  • Consistent/excessive barking

AGGRESSION/REACTIVITY: We want your dog to be safe and comfortable, and due to the number of different people and dogs that come and go from classes, we are not able to accommodate aggressive or highly reactive dogs in our group classes.

Dog Equipment: We are Positive Reinforcement Trainers, and we do not allow punitive dog equipment such as prong collars, pinch collars, or e-collars/shock collars to be on any dog at any time while in classes (whether turned on, or not). We respect that owners may use the equipment of their choice outside of classes. However, we require that such equipment be completely removed from their dogs for the duration of the class. 

Please use a standard 4–6-foot leash (nylon, leather, etc.) for class.

Medical Issues/Circumstances: If your dog is ill or injured, please keep them at home and do not bring them to the facility until they are cleared by a vet.

You are still welcome to attend group classes yourself without your dog if the illness your pet has is not a highly communicable illness or an infectious disease (such as giardia or bordetella).

If your dog has or is suspected to have kennel cough, please keep them at home until they have not coughed in 7 days; or they are cleared and deemed no longer contagious by a vet.

While your dog is recovering, we ask that handlers/household members do not attend our facility, even without their dog, due to the risk of infecting other dogs.

All dogs should be current on vaccinations.

Our class introduces foundation training skills. It also includes guided play with other puppies. Your puppy will learn:

  • Appropriate play skills
  • Sit
  • Come
  • Down
  • Settle
  • Leash Skills

Tails of Success

"I had initially started training with a different company in a large class that did not cater to what my pup needed. After training with Vanessa and realized how important it was to have the right trainer... Looking forward to continuing my training with her.
