Best dog trainer in Toronto, Ontario

Faculty

We are a team of certified, professional Dog Trainers with years of experience and a foundation in animal behaviour, psychology, and learning theory.  

We hold the highest standards for our trainers; we require certification through one of four approved institutions, a minimum of 10 hours of continuing education each year, Pet First Aid & CPR training every two years, and experience training at least two species (not including canines or humans).  

Our trainers have trained dogs, horses, cats, chickens, ferrets, rats, goldfish, hamsters, and most importantly, people! We know that our job is not simply to train a dog, but to coach the other end of the leash as well, therefore our continuing education hours are also dedicated to working with the human half of the equation in a manner that is compassionate, non-judgemental, and accommodates various learning styles. We pride ourselves on being people-trainers first, animal-trainers second.
