We offer classes for puppies and dogs. The training methods we focus on revolve around bonding and socialization. Our trainer, Andrew Din CPDT-KA, from Back to Pack Rescue has been training dogs for over 8 years. Understanding that each dog is unique in their own way and require different training methods for correcting different behaviours.
Andrew is certified through the CCPDT and holds a certification in Knowledge Assessment.
One on one and rehabilitation classes are also available.
These courses have been put together to focus on several areas of training and development for all dogs. Each class will be 1-1.5 hours in length, and be held twice a week for two consecutive weeks totaling four classes. Each dog and client will receive a personality assessment and individual time with the trainer each class.
All classes begin at 7 pm
