Enrichment & Improvement Sessions

Training, Stimulation and Exercise for your dog.
All while you are at work!

Our Enrichment and Improvement Sessions are customized to your dog's needs. Whether your dog has areas to improve on inside, or outside the home, we will build a program that betters your dogs' obedience, well-being, and manners.

 One hour visit, (Monday to Friday) with training, stimulation, and exercise. Together, we develop a training program to your dog's specific needs.

Videos, photos, report card and tips are provided after each session. The goal is to progress your dog with his/her training while giving them exercise and stimulation while you are at work. We then show you how to practice the same behaviours with your dog. 

Whether your priority is on training or exercise with a qualified handler, these sessions are tailored for your goal and take the weather into account when choosing our activities. 

 Your dog will be working physically, mentally and learning new skills!
