Dog Training in New Westminster (One-on-One)

Suitable for pet parents who want to help settle their new dog into their family or for behavioural challenges that need more focus and attention that an individual pupper can get from a group class environment. This type of training is great for dogs who come from all walks of life, especially if you want the added benefits of an individualized training plan and one-on-one focus with a trainer! Stefania is in a formal Mentorship with Renée Erdman of BravoDog.ca as she studies to complete her certification with The Academy for Dog Trainers in order to ensure she is helping her clients in the best way possible. *All sessions currently held at our facilities and/or outdoors, no home visits at this time due to covid.*

For dogs of all ages!

Some cues/behaviours we may be able to work on for you:

*Perfected Recall
*Potty Training
*Hand Targeting
*Leave It
*Stay
*Place
*Drop It
*Typical behaviour challenges such as jumping up
*….and more! Contact us to set up a consult. This is a full session with the trainer in order to determine what we may be able to offer and to come up with an estimate.

All Board + Train’s included a skills pass-over session with the owners at the end of the visit!

Please note that Board + Train (even science-based ones like ours) may not be suitable for your dog. Behaviours are not guaranteed, so, if we believe our services will not be able to help your dog, we may ethically decide not to go forward in an effort to not take your money or sell you “snake oil” so to speak. Perhaps we can suggest an alternative like classes, or private sessions, or walk ‘n trains with the lovely R+ trainer we partner with for example 🙂

Price: Starting at $900 (min. 6 nights/7 days) plus GST – Please email for more info or register above for a private session to begin with as this service requires at least one prior to booking this long term commitment!
