Our brick and mortar location in Toronto is currently closed due to Covid-19. The number of cases in Ontario is not going down as we had hoped and as a result, I am not comfortable putting people at risk in a classroom setting until we can be absolutely sure. In the meantime, our Membership is hoppin'! Our students are having a blast and even setting up puppy playdates for socialisation with each other. Our team provides incredible support and guidance, LIVE as well as through our online programs. Join us! You won't regret it. 

RAISING A WELL-BEHAVED DOG JUST GOT EASIER AND MORE AFFORDABLE...

YOU'RE ONLY A FEW CLICKS AWAY FROM THE ESSENTIAL TRAINING, ADVICE & SUPPORT YOU NEED TO RAISE A WELL-BEHAVED, HAPPY DOG

Hey! I'm Caryn.

I teach dog-guardians and pet professionals the efficient and effective ways to change their dogs' behaviour using science-based and non-violent tools and techniques.

You don't have to choose between results and relationships - you CAN have both.

INTRODUCING 
THE CENTRE FOR CANINE EDUCATION

TCCE is the leading school for dog-guardians and pet professionals. With a brick and mortar location in Toronto, Canada, we've now launched our full-service online academy so that anyone, anywhere can have access to quality dog training and behaviour coaching support. Whether you have a brand new puppy, an adolescent dog who has forgotten their manners, a new rescue dog, or an adult dog with behaviour challenges, this is the right place for you to hang your hat. 


Join the hundreds of other dog-lovers who are as committed to their dogs as you are to yours. Celebrate your successes with us and let us commiserate with you on those rough days. 


Gone are the days of frantically searching Google for advice and reputable resources. No more changing trainers like you change socks. Say goodbye to that awful feeling when every piece of advice you receive from well-meaning people is confusing and conflicting, and therefore you must be ruining your dog. 

DogNose

Rest assured that you'll get science-based and humane education here.

Consistent and effective strategies for problem-prevention and behaviour change. 

THIS ACADEMY WILL HELP YOU TO:

Prepare for a new puppy or rescue dog so that you are not experiencing "trial by fire" when you could be enjoying the process with ease.

Prevent problem-behaviours and fear-aggression later in life by properly socialising your dog rather than simply "exposing" them to the world and hoping for the best.

Learn how to spot any behavioural "red flags" as well as the tools to implement early intervention, preventing any molehills from becoming mountains.

Eliminate the guesswork and the need for "Dr Google" and the advice of strangers, friends, family, well-meaning strangers, and the internet. Get step-by step roadmaps and consistent advice from start to finish. 

Connect with other like-minded dog-guardians who are there to support you, rather than act as arm-chair "experts" and "keyboard warriors" who watch you struggle. Celebrate and commiserate together and never feel judged! 

Feel supported by a team of qualified, certified, professional dog trainers who have dedicated their lives and careers to education and experience in psychology, animal behaviour, canine body language & communication, ethology, anatomy & physiology, and more! 

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 TALK

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! 

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!! 

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.

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.

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!
