PurPle dOg classes are training classes for people living with exceptional canines!  Click here to access the registration form (all classes).


Preliminary
(FREE)
Our introductory lesson, WITHOUT dogs, gives you an overview of how we train, how we teach, and how we get you started training your dog.

Best Friends ($175+gst per dog / 6 drop-in lessons)
For all dogs over 16 weeks of age (dogs must have no history of aggression towards people or other dogs).
Learn to be a better handler, communicate clearly with your dog, and have better control in distracting situations.  You will learn how to train your dog to stay connected with you, to walk nicely on the lesah, to hold a down stay, and to come when called.  This is our beginners/manners class.
Classes are flexible!  Choose a day and time to attend, and join us when you are ready.  Lessons in addition to the six weeks are $20 each, or $15 each for adopted dogs.

Tricked Out ($145+gst per dog / 4 consecutive lessons)
This fun class is aimed at handlers who want to go beyond the basics while continuing to build their training bond.  Handler/dog teams must have completed Best Friends (or equivalent) to join us.  Classes are held on Thursdays at 8:15 PM.

Busy Buddies ($145+gst per dog / 4 consecutive lessons)
Looking for ways to stay active with your dog?  Challenge yourself and your training skills! Every lesson is an introduction to a different dog activity.  Handler/dog teams must have completed Best Friends (or equivalent) to join this class.  Classes are held Thursdays at 8:15 PM.

Dog Listening ($175+gst per dog / 4 consecutive lessons)
Is your dog afraid?  Reactive to people or to other dogs?  Agressive on walks?  Can't stop barking?  Handler/dog teams must apply for this class and have a phone consult with our instructor prior to registration.  Dogs must have no history of aggression causing injury.  Registration is subject to instructor approva.  Classes are held on Thursdays at 8:15 PM.

Private Lessons ($75 / lesson)
Your class, your way!  No pre-requisities!  Work out problem behaviours, build specific skills, or bring a friend and have a class just for you.  Please contact our instructor to learn more.
