Dog Obedience Training In Toronto
Dog training can increase your pet’s quality of life
The Dog Market’s Dog training in Toronto is provided by Dorothy, Chief Instructor at Mother Knows Best Obedience School. Through strictly humane methods, Dorothy has been teaching obedience for 25 years.
She focuses on kindness and working with the dog’s natural spirit. Training and obedience are achieved without food or treat coercion, resulting in an increase in bonding and a willingness to please.
Build a better relationship with your dog through humane obedience training.
Dogs are lifelong learners, just like people.
No matter how young or old your dog is, Dog training in Toronto can improve:
- Their quality of life.
- Their behavior.
- Your relationship (with your dog. Although better behavior from your dog might also improve other relationships in your life).
Everyone is welcome.
Puppies or old-timers.
All breeds, all temperaments.
As long as your dog is up to date with vaccinations, there’s a space for you in one of our regular sessions.
Just be sure to bring your sense of humour!
What do we learn?
Everything you need to know to be a happy dog family!
Your dog will learn:
- To walk without pulling the leash.
- To sit when you stop walking.
- Stay, sit, and come when called to sit in front of you.
- That unattended food on the table is not for him/her.
- Barking for attention is not cool.
- The doorbell is not the enemy.
- To stop jumping up on visitors and furniture.
You’ll be amazed how quickly your dog learns. And it’s so much fun for you both.
Obedience training class details.
Q. How often do classes run?
A. Monday and Friday, all year. Classes start at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm, and run for 6 weeks once you start.
Q. How many dog/owner pairs per class?
A. Each class accommodates up to 6 pairs (parent and pet), but smaller class sizes are common.
Q. Are there different training levels?
A. Yes! We recommend most start in the level 1 class, which teaches fundamentals like sit, stay, heel and general behavior cues.
Once you complete level 1, you can move on to level 2 for more advanced training, including hand signals and distance training (like recalling from out of sight).
There’s more too. We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves. So all we’ll say is – agility training.
Whatever your breed or your level of experience, obedience training is a fun, smart way to bond with your dog.
