Learning begins the moment your dog enters your home.

who is the best puppy trainer in ontario?

Let's teach your new puppy to do the right thing, right from the start and guide your adolescent through those rocky teenage months!

A well adjusted, obedient pet is the result of commitment, time and a trusting relationship. Understanding why your dog does what he does and learning how to change behaviour without force will produce a dog that is eager to learn and wants to train. You may be a good fit for in-home training if:

  • You are unable to attend classes.

  • You’d like to teach your new puppy to do the right thing, right from the start.

  • You need help guiding your adolescent through those rocky teenage months.

  • You are interested in positive reinforcement dog training.

At SitStayLearn Dog Training I use the most up-to-date science-based positive reinforcement dog training techniques to teach your new puppy, adolescent or adult dog. Understanding what positive reinforcement is and how to apply it are key to it's success. It's not just about cookies.
