Private Dog Training Classes
The OHS offers private dog training classes both virtually and in-person, to provide dog owners with behavioural support and specialized training for their canine companions.
Private lessons are geared towards owners who need customized assistance with specific behaviours, such as:
- Loose-leash walking;
- Jumping up;
- General basic obedience (sit, down, stay, leave it);
- General Q&A;
- Body handling;
- Stranger-directed aggression; and,
- On-leash reactivity.
Please note that we are not able to assist with separation anxiety at this time. We recommend a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer.
Both virtual and in-person private training classes are offered Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
- $325 (one-hour consult + four 45-minute sessions)
- $65 (additional 45-minute session)
For in-person private dog training classes, dogs must have the following vaccinations:
- Parvovirus, Distemper, Adenovirus and Parainfluenza (up-to-date);
