FURRIENDS DOG TRAINING

**We are currently accepting new clients for basic obedience training**

*Dogs with complex behaviours will be referred to a Certified Behaviour Consultant*

Furriends takes a force-free and reward-based approach with training. To us, this means we work at our dog's pace allowing them to have a choice, setting them up for success, and rewarding them when they make great decisions. By taking in consideration their internal state and motivations, we can boost their confidence and build a positive relationship with them! We live in a world that is not natural for dogs; They are solely dependant on us and there are tremendous expectations for them to be well behaved in this urban environment. When we can view the world from our dog's perspective, we can appreciate their behaviours, better understand them, and see how our actions impact them. Furriends can teach you to train your dog to have life long skills in a way where they feel safe and everyone has fun!

Furriends Private Training Consultation

$50

A 45 minute in-person consultation is required prior to any private training services. The purposes of a consultation are to discuss the challenges you are having with your dog and to ensure we are a good fit for your training needs. For the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved, Furriends will not accept training requests beyond their experience and skill set. Referrals to other trusted professionals will be recommended.

Furriends Private Training Package

A training package includes 4 x one hour private training sessions with you and your dog at your home. The benefits of a training package is to allow us to address the root of the behavioural issue, solidify fundamental skills, and build off of it to progress the training. After each session, a written summary will be emailed to you, and support will be available to guide you along the way!

What does a successful recall mean to us? It means our dog will come running back to us the first time we say their recall cue.
