Have Fun with Your Dog All Year Round

GRCWA is offering Drop-In Classes run by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer at affordable prices because we believe a dog’s training should be fun, convenient and ongoing without breaking the bank!

Drop-in classes provide a fun bonding experience for you and your dog and you can start and join whenever you like. Focusing on basic manners training, obedience training, show training, scent work, agility obstacles and much more in fun and creative ways that have real world applications. They are a great way to keep you and your pup busy and are a great way to stimulate your dog’s body and mind. The goal is to train your dog to be happy and reliable in any and all real-life situations…and have fun doing it.

Dog Training that is more than Sit, Stay & Wait 

We create a positive learning environment which is important for your dog’s success and fun, and shows that learning doesn’t have to be boring or involve repetive skills.

We use training methods to develop your communication with your dog and improve your dog’s impulse control.

Games and exercises help both dogs and their owners make good behaviour fun and strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

Dogs are taught loose lead walking, basic manners, basic obedience exercises such as sit, drop and stand. Emphasis on social skills and fundamental communication skills are an important part of our training. Any behavioural issues that may arise are also addressed.

All Levels & Ages

Classes are ideal for busy people who want to enjoy time with their dog without committing to weekly classes. “Drop-In” means you can show up whenever you want…every class, once a month…whatever you want. Obviously, you will learn more by coming regularly but people love the flexibility! The classes are designed for all levels of experience.

Whether you are looking to keep your dog “tuned up” by coming out once a month or looking to turn your dog into a “Rock Star” by coming out for every class, the Drop-In practice sessions are here to accommodate your schedule. Each session will be different and structured to best meet the needs of the people who attend.
