We’ve partnered with City Dogs to create Toronto’s best dog training experiences for our Uberdog families.
Dogs are our loyal companions but they don't always behave the way we want them to. Dog parenting is real and raising a well-mannered fur baby takes time and effort. Preparing a puppy for a successful life in a human world or helping an older four legged friend overcome an emerging behaviour has only rewarding and beneficial impacts on the quality of life together.
The training experiences that are available to Uberdog families are focused on dog AND parent development. They are fun, enriching, educational and engaging activities that the whole family can enjoy.
Exciting New City Dogs Experiences at Uberdog
There is no better place for agility than Uberdog Athletic Club! Come out and learn the basics of tunnels, jumps, platforms and weave poles in Beginner Agility, add the teeter totter and a-frame obstacles as well as speed in Intermediate Agility and then start to have some friendly competition in Advanced Agility..
Solo Agility Classes
Is your dog people or dog reactive and unable to focus during classes? We have the perfect solution for you! Use our space and equipment with just you, your dog and your trainer. These are drop-in sessions so you can come as often as you like.
Learning to Listen
This is a great class for graduated pups or those who need a refresher on:
- a rocket recall
- loose leash walking
- working on jumping
- drop it and leave it inside and outside
- door dashing
- wait and stay inside and outside
Losing It on the Leash
Does your dog lunge, bark and carry on when on a leash, but perfectly happy off the leash? This class deals specifically with leash frustration, which is very common. We address the reasons why and techniques that will help create a more zen walk for you and your dog.
My Best Friend for Kids and Dogs
Did your children beg you for a puppy but now they don’t really know how to interact? This class helps to build the bond through fun activities, useful tricks and even getting started in some fun sports that you can do at home! Your kids and dogs will love this super fun and interactive class.
Canine Good Neighbour Exam Prep
The Canadian Kennel Club administers the Canine Good Neighbour Exam that evaluates whether a dog can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs. It is a great first step into determining whether your dog would be suitable for therapy work. This class goes over each of the 12 steps of the exam in detail to help prepare you and your dog.
- different types of recall techniques
- avoiding the chase me game
- emergency recall
- training a rocket recall
Dog Park Skills
It’s pretty common for dogs to lose all focus and not listen in the dog park, but it doesn’t have to be that way! This class is designed for dogs who love the park but may just need to practice important skills to keep the park fun and safe. In this class you will learn:
- recall techniques that work in the park
- drop it and leave it
- how and when to break up a play that is spiraling
- keeping energy levels at a manageable level
- practicing in a low-distraction environment AND in a dog park setting
We get down to the roots of Jumping, Leash Pulling, and Recall – the three most important skills. Choose the one(s) you need help with most and see the results fast while practicing in real-life scenarios.
Private Dog Training
Whether you have a puppy ready to start off on the right paw, a new rescue getting used to your new home, or a dog going through some difficult behaviours, we are prepared for all sorts of training including leash walking, recall, calm greetings, barking, reactivity, fear and anxiety, and even aggression. We will work with you to achieve your goals through science-based methods that are educational and fun for both you and your dog.
