Dog training

The educational stay is an excellent way to optimize your dog's stimulation during his daily stay with us. What we offer is to work on a behavioral or obedience problem for you in order to increase the quality time you spend with your dog and decrease the time to discipline when you return home!

A 15-minute meeting will take place with the dog's owner(s) to better understand the behaviour(s) to be worked on. Here are a few examples of behaviours that can be worked on during your stay at the boarding house:   

The training will consist of 2 sessions per day. The duration may vary according to the intensity of the exercise. Since dogs learn through repetition, the more regularly your companion comes to the kennel, the more effectively he will learn. The same goes for the number of training sessions per day. We therefore offer you the possibility of adding more training sessions according to your dog's needs or simply to maximize the results.

A private follow-up (1 to 2 sessions) with one of our canine instructors will be necessary in order to transpose the notions seen at the kennel to your environment. This follow-up will give you the tools you need to ensure that the learning process is complete and continues in your home!

BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY AT HOME

If your dog has developed behavioural problems over time don't wait any longer. The therapy is done in 3 steps: the evaluation of the problem by phone, the home visit and a follow-up by email 2 weeks after the therapy. The home visit will last between 1h30 to 2 hours and will allow the dog trainer to observe and analyse your dog and to determine the core of the behavioural problem(s). The dog trainer will explain the reasons your dog may react this way in addition to giving you solutions to eliminate the problematic behaviour by demonstrating to you the exercises to practice. Within 48 hours of the visit, will receive a detailed plan and necessary tools to refer to during your training session s with your dog. A follow-up email will be sent to you to see your dogs progress, answer any questions you may have and to see if a second visit is necessary. Normally, after one session, you will have all the necessary tools to change your dog's behaviour. Of course, therapy requires commitment and time on your part in order to see results! By implementing the proposed exercises, you will eventually see a difference in the quality of life in your beloved companion!
