We conduct animal-assisted therapy programs for at-risk teens in various high schools. The animal-assisted therapy program is for future professionals. In January 2020, we launched the distant learning online platform. It is a subscription-based service that allows you to acquire the same knowledge as our students but at your own pace.
We do not offer certification for this option because our students are evaluated in person; however, you will receive support and guidance throughout your subscription, depending on the level you have chosen.
Finally, we can provide you with references for groomers, dog sitters, and dog walkers.
Private Dog Training
At the Dogue Shop, we offer a variety of training sessions specially designed to meet your needs. A typical consultation includes evaluation forms, a training session, a question period, and an email session summary. Because each case is different, we require as much information as possible before we meet. We also ask that potential clients make a list of their expectations regarding the dog's desired behaviour.
Our behaviour and training approach involves mental and physical stimulation; therefore, be prepared to work with your dog. Our objective is to teach you how to achieve your desired goals and improve your relationship in the least amount of time possible. At the Dogue Shop, we believe, enrichment and mental activities are the foundations of a successful behaviour modification program which is achieved via positive reinforcement and relationship-building activities. Yes, even domestic animals require mental stimulation in order to be physically and mentally happy.

- The initial visit is two hours

The service industry is, unfortunately, victim to last-minute rescheduling, last-minute cancellations, or no-shows. Private consultations are held at the Dogue Shop. A deposit of fifty percent (50%) of the total amount must accompany the application. The animal service industry suffers greatly from this reality. Accepted payment methods are e-transfers (all major banks), cash, and Interac.
