Dog Training

Available in downtown Toronto

Our in-your-home dog training program uses playful, positive exercises designed to foster clear communication and a strong bond between you and your pet.  The skills focused on are simple: sit, lie down, stay, come, and loose-leash walking.  The Fleabag aims to provide a basis for enthusiastic, life-long learning for you and your dog in a convenient and affordable way. $75 per session or 3 sessions for $200.

NB. There are many advantages to taking your dog to a local positive reinforcement training school, including more socialization while learning, or help with behavioural problems. Feel free to contact us to discuss what kind of training best meets the needs of your dog, and to get a referral. 

A FREE training session is available for dogs from recognized rescue organizations to help them settle in with their new families.

I recently read about a study that demonstrated how our brains make decisions at least 7 seconds before we are conscious of making them.
