Looking for something fun to do with your dog? This is an outdoor obedience class for friendly dogs of all ages. Let us help you teach and proof  your obedience skills outside in local parks and trails where the distractions are highest.  This class is designed to be taken multiple times so you can work on increasing your level of obedience and work through distance, duration and distraction. There will be a mix of skill levels in every class – just like the dog park!

If you have a newly adopted dog, want some help with your training or just want to hang out with your dog, this class is for you.  Come out and join our supportive group!


Huffy Hounds

Four, 1.5 hour weekly classes, $200 including GST (existing clients only)
New clients $325 including GST (Includes assessment and 1 private training session)

Register by calling:  604-868-5145 or email hello@dogpartners.ca
Please read our Terms and Conditions for Participation before Registering.

Please note:  This is a class for reactive adult dogs.  If your dog is under 3 years of age, please contact us for different training options.

Do you have a Huffy Hound?  Is your dog reactive, fearful, or aggressive?  We can help.  Each week we work through a series of exercises designed to help each individual dog learn to cope with challenging situations.  We also work on training specific skills and alternatives to reactive behaviour.  If it’s appropriate, we have friendly, neutral dogs help us in class with social skill building.  The humans in class learn about dog body language and appropriate social skill and play behaviour.  The goal is to help people make and see progress with their dogs through an ongoing series of classes.

This class is scheduled on demand - when we have enough appropriate dogs to build a reasonable group. Classes are held outside in local, on-leash parks. You need to be an existing client or set up an initial home visit before being eligible to participate in class.
