Day Training

This service is for people who want quick results and don’t have the know-how or the time to learn how to do the job themselves.

How does Day Training work?

First, we start with an evaluation

This visit has a few goals: getting to know each-other, setting your specific goals and prepare your dog’s training!

We’ll talk about what changes you’d like to see in your dog, how long that might take, and how it all works.

We’ll also give you advice so that the situation gets better during the training process.

Then, we train your dog!

Day training happens between 11am and 5pm, Monday through Thursday. It is an intensive program of 4 training sessions a week!

Your trainer will arrive, either take your dog to an appropriate location or stay on the premises, work on your goals, then leave! Training sessions last 60 minutes.

The time of training can vary a little, but you’ll be given a window (between 1pm and 3pm, for instance) during which your trainer will be present.

Finally, we have transfer sessions.

Transfer sessions are what makes all of this work. Your trainer will teach you how to reproduce what they taught your dog and how to make sure the behavior stays solid over time. Depending on your specific goals, you may have several small transfers throughout the process, or a single big one at the end.

You can find the price list for our services here.

Our service area covers: Verdun, Lasalle, the South-West, NDG, Westmount and Ville-Marie.
