Where obedience and fun aren't far fetched

Our training team has years of experience and share a philosophy based on the behavioural science concepts of positive reinforcement. Choose from a wide range of classes to suit the individual needs of your pooch.

Pawsitive Dawgs Training

Level I is an introductory-level course that addresses training areas of immediate concern to dog owners, so you and your relaxed, happy, and obedient pooch can have more fun together!

Our training philosophy is based on the behavioral science concepts of positive reinforcement. This fun and positive reward based dog training class with our trainers focuses on basic foundation behaviours to resolve common obedience issues (e.g., loose leash walking, re-call, no jumping, no excessive barking and more), increasing focused attention and building a great relationship and strong bond between you and your pooch. Have fun and learn with our professional dog training expert with over a decade of experience. Family members welcome.
