Private Classes

Not sure exactly where or if your dog fits into a class? Your dog has fear issues and you’re not sure how it will do in a class. You already have some training knowledge and just want some extra tips so you can practice on your own.

Whatever the reason, we can do a private consult and help you to see what type of training is the best for you and your dog. We can either point you in the direction of one of our classes, or help to design a training program with your goals in mind.

Classes held in Rosedale
  • Monday/Thursday – 9:30 or 10:45am
  • Tuesday/Wednesday – 5:00, 6:15 or 7:30pm

Cost: $125 plus GST for one consult, $500 plus GST for five sessions

Trick training

Dog tricks are a great way to take your training to the next level. Teaching your dog tricks can be fun for both of you. Trick training is a great way to build your dog’s confidence, and it allows you to continue training with your dog and keep it enjoyable.

Sometimes tricks can help deal with behavioural problems and in the end the dog is just happy to please you.

Cost: $125 plus GST for one consult, $500 plus GST for five sessions (half hour lessons possible).
Classes held in Rosedale.

Rally Obedience

The main objective of Rally-O is to provide a fast-moving and motivational activity that demonstrates a handler and dog’s competency in basic obedience exercises without requiring exact precision for success. Dogs should demonstrate willingness and enjoyment and handlers can use praise and encouragement throughout (as explained by the Canadian Kennel Club).

Our intent is that both dog and handlers are having FUN! We will teach the rules so that if you want to go on to compete, you certainly can, or just come to build a relationship with your dog. Either way, the time will be spent helping you develop together.

Dates

  • INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED-Mondays @ 6:00pm (FULL)
  • GETTING STARTED IN RALLY-Thursdays @ 4:30pm (1 spot available)
  • INTERMEDIATE to MASTERS-Thursdays @ 7:30pm (FULL)

Cost: $125 plus GST/session (5 classes).

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand you may have questions about what we can help with, and how we help. The below is our most frequently asked questions to help answer any questions you may have!

The group classes are held at the Anglican Church Hall in Sardis – 46098 Higginson Rd (at Stevenson), and the Privates and Semi-privates are held in Rosedale – 10024 Parkwood Dr.

If your child is under 5 years old, a second parent will need to be there to monitor them while the other person is training the dog. If older than 5, they can be there and occupied with an iPad, or book (no squeaky toys) but need to remain seated or help with training the dog during class and cannot approach the other dogs.

I’d highly recommend that you put each dog in separate classes so that they can focus more on you during the class. Often when dogs have bonded, they’re constantly searching for the other dog across the room.

If you’re wearing the harness, please also wear a flat collar on the dog to class.

No. Please bring a 6 foot leash.

Please bring 1-2 cups of small treats. You can bring kibble, but please also bring other things cut about the size of a pea like cheese, chicken, hot dogs, liver, etc.
We go through a lot of treats in class. It’s important to withhold the meal prior to class, especially if you have a smaller dog.

Wow Dog Training provided a terrific experience for my dog and I! Leanne Good offers professional, science based training delivered in a comprehensive, kind lesson. With her coaching, I was able to work through my dogs reactivity, and can now enjoy loose leash walking in the park. I would not hesitate to recommend this business.
