Private Dog Training

If you are hoping to teach your dog some new skills, dog training is a great option.

Please Note: We are unable to run classes due to COVID-19.
When we return to Orange level, our classes will start again.

For many dogs and their families, private dog training can be an ideal option.  You can focus on learning the skills that are most important to you, and your dog will benefit from learning in a less distracting and stimulating environment.

If you are hoping to teach your dog some new skills, dog training is a great option. Private training can teach dogs to perform certain tasks and actions that can make living together easier for both of you.

For dogs who may be sensitive, easily-stimulated, shy or anxious around new dogs or people, or who may have no prior foundation learning in a class, private training may be the most supportive and least stressful choice for everyone.

However, sometimes what appears to be nuisance behaviour is actually an expression of a distressing emotional state for the dog that will need to be addressed before training can be successful. 

If you are concerned about aggression, out of control barking, separation related distress, extreme fearfulness, predatory behaviour, conflicts between your pets, resource guarding, bites, hyperactivity or persistent anxiety, please email us and we would be happy to refer you to a veterinary behaviourist or certified canine behaviourist for support. 

Private sessions are available throughout the week, daytimes and evenings. Please email for an appointment: train@dreamlandpet.ca

What to Bring:

  • A 6 ft nylon leash (no flexi leashes please)
  • 1 cup of treats: something the size of a pea, smelly and soft
  • ½ a serving of your dog’s food
  • A harness with a front and back clip (at minimum it must have a back clip)
  • A food dispensing toy like a Kong or West Paw Topple that is stuffed with your choice of food; peanut butter, frozen yogurt, canned dog food are all options
  • A treat pouch: we need to be able to get food into our pups mouth quickly, a sweater with pockets could also work. Pant pockets or Ziploc bags take too long to open 
  • A mat, bed or towel suitably sized for your dog to lie on
  • Any favourite toys you and your dog use to play together
