Experienced Calgary Dog Trainers

You’ll have a professional and experienced dog trainer teaching you techniques that work. Raising Canine has years of experience helping dogs and their owners build healthy, happy relationships – with all sorts of breeds and backgrounds.  The long term physical and emotional health of your dog are what we focus on, and we make sure you leave our courses feeling confident in your dog training obedience abilities.

To help ensure all dogs and humans have a fun and safe experience, our training classes are for dogs that are at ease with other dogs. For ‘reactive dogs’ that lunge, growl, and incessantly bark at other dogs while in a group setting, we do offer private sessions to deal with your dog’s issues right in your own home. Private sessions also specialize in jumping up, barking at the door, door bolting, fear and anxiety, house training, and much more. Please call (403) 984-3644 to book an appointment.

We will also be offering a Specialized New Course in November 2017 called ‘Please Ease’ to further help owners with their reactive dogs in a safe, controlled, small group setting of 2 – 3 dogs only. Please check for details coming in October 2017.

All classes are 1 hour in duration over a 6 week time frame (Except for ‘Please Ease Course’). All family members are encouraged to attend however it is more challenging with children under the age of 7.

Cost of all classes is $240 + gst (Except for ‘Please Ease Course’).
All training class purchases are non-refundable once classes have commenced.
