Recall and Leash Skills Class

Improve your daily adventures with your dog. Teach your dog to walk politely on leash. Find out how to get them to come when you call, despite all the exciting things in the world.

This class is suitable for dogs 4 months and older at the first class, with a minimum of two sets of vaccinations. They must have been in your home for at least one week. 

If your dog is fearful, or barks uncontrollably around other dogs, private training is a better option.

These classes are hosted through Renfrew Park Community Centre (at their Slocan Hall location) - please book directly through the Vancouver Parks website.

Contact us to be notified of classes later in the year.

Custom support for your dog's big feelings.

Shy. Fearful. Anxious. Reactive. Aggressive. 

Humans use these to describe a lot of different behaviours, so we're hesitant to generalize based on just a label, but group classes may not be the best option for dogs who are very uncomfortable with new situations, other dogs and people.


Intense exposure will likely not help them "get used to it". In fact, putting your dog in an stressful situation that they cannot escape from can make things worse. We'd be happy to help them feel more comfortable at their own pace with a personalized training plan instead.
