You don't have to choose between results and relationships

 - you CAN have both.

Do you have a puppy between the ages of 8 weeks and 6 months?

Say goodbye to regular Google searches that leave you with conflicting advice and the feeling of frustration.

Do you have a dog who barks and lunges at dogs or people on leash?

Caryn was able to get through to my reactive dog when no one else could, and gave me the skills to not only train him out of his issues, but form a deeper bond. We finally had a trainer that listened instead of assuming, adjusted the plan to suit our specific needs, had answers to our questions, could back everything up with evidence, and understood the reality of training outside of a controlled classroom.

& Finn

Rest assured that I'll give you science-based and ethical guidance.
Let me provide you with consistent and effective strategies for problem-prevention and behaviour change.

Is your dog's home-alone anxiety causing YOU to have anxiety? 

You're only a few clicks away from the essential training advice, support, and guidance you need to raise a well-behaved, happy dog.


What makes us different?

Access to expertise

You won't be left to work through every challenge on your own - you're connecting with your trainers on a regular basis. You'll have priority access to one-on-one support.

We walk the walk

We've had puppies, rescue dogs, dogs from excellent breeders, working dogs, therapy dogs, dogs with serious behaviour challenges. We're in the trenches with you.

Versatility

It's not just "puppy fluff" - we've got it all covered. You won't get a cookie-cutter approach to all your problems - you'll get creative solutions, and not just one! We're not going to tell you that "you're doing it wrong" - we're going to coach you better. 

Affordability

Everyone deserves support when raising an excellent canine companion - not just the ones who can afford the best schools and private trainers. For a low monthly fee, you've got everything you need!

No B.S. allowed

Unlike open Facebook groups, we have a strict no-B.S. policy, which means there's no judgement, non-constructive comments, trolling, or pseudo-science. Finally!! There are no "trolls" in our membership and you'll be met with supportive comments and positivity all around. 

Longevity

We're not just here for the first few months of your experience. We're here for good. From the puppy-biting to the terrible-twos and after your dog nips the neighbour or gets into a scrap at the park.

Family-friendly

We know it's hard to get everyone on the same page but we encourage you and your family to join us, together! Make it a family affair - jump into our live trainings and Q&As so that everyone is consistent and you get the results you need.

Positive-reinforcement based

We will never suggest that you yell at, hit, kick, or intimidate your dog in the name of training. All our methods are science-based and based on positive-reinforcement. We don't recommend or condone the use of aversive tools or techniques, which means your dog will be not only well-trained, but behaviourally sound and safe to be around.


You had me at "hello"

I hear you. We're all tired of being told we're doing something wrong. Come, meet your village.

We're here for you.

Puppy Training A to Z

You've brought home your bundle of furry joy and it’s hard not to notice the razor-like puppy teeth and the puddles everywhere. The sleep deprivation is teaching you about a whole new level of exhaustion and you’re worried you’re doing everything wrong.
You’re starting to feel that typical overwhelm that all puppy-guardians feel in the early days. Everybody out there is “an expert”, and you’re getting information from all angles and most of it is conflicting. It’s hard to know what’s right and what’s wrong with so much advice on Google, from the breeder, the vet, your friends, people at the park, and your family too. 

We've got your back. Puppy training from A-Z with all the toppings - crate-training, potty training, biting, and more!

Your FULL Puppy Socialisation Plan

We know that during this worldwide pandemic, socialising a puppy feels next to impossible. There is much we can do to start our puppies off on the right paw and socialise them with various people, places, things, sounds, textures, and more, while maintaining social distance. 

Work through the lists and share your progress to be entered into a monthly draw to win a prize.

You can do this! A little unconventionally, but you can do it.  

Feel like you missed the socialisation piece with your dog? You can still do this with careful modifications!

Is this membership for me?

This Membership is for you if:

  • you want results AND a relationship with your dog
  • you can commit to a few short training sessions every day (under 5m)
  • you have lots of questions you need answered
  • you want professional support 5 days a week 
  • you have the patience to help your dog learn without force
  • you hope to create a "village" to help you raise The Best Dog Ever.

This Membership is NOT for you if:

  • you need a quick fix without any effort
  • you want the work done for you 
  • you don't have the time or energy to train your dog
  • you wouldn't take advantage of ongoing professional support 
  • you are easily frustrated and prefer to use punishment
  • you have zero interest in learning from other people's experiences

Dog training is not something that happens overnight or within a specific period of time. Just like raising a child, it takes time, patience, perseverance, education, and it is ongoing. The learning never ends. Once you master one thing, you'll see a new and different challenge before your eyes. That's normal! Nobody is born perfect, with all the appropriate skills installed on their hard drive. You've got a dog's lifetime to teach them what you need them to know. 


It's a process. A journey.


I'll walk you through every stage. I'll hold your hand through the difficult times. I'll provide you roadmaps and guidance to change your dog's behaviour. 


I will never recommend that you use punishment, force, fear, intimidation. I will never recommend that you use an aversive tool. I will not fill your mind with silly dominance-based issues. I will be here for you the whole way through. I will never judge you or shame you. I will treat you, your family, your dog, with compassion.
