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.

Chaos to Calm
Is your dog sometimes a little out of control? Would you like your dog to be a little more zen-like in certain situations? This is the class for you!
We discuss the possible root causes of the chaos and teach techniques to help every dog:
- calm when people come to the door
- calm when you have company
- calm leash walking with distractions
- calm at home when you need peace or to work
- calm in new environments
Thursday August 4th to Sept 1 7:30pm to 8:30pm
Leash Walking Workshop
This class is recommended for dogs aged 6+ months due to weather considerations when spending time outdoors. This class will cover how to strengthen leash walking skills in various environments with different distractions. The goal is to strengthen loose leash walking behaviors and make life easier for you and your pup – while having fun doing so! Learning in the park is tough – but so relevant because we can’t always teach in a sterile environment. You are encouraged to practice the lessons provided after each class INSIDE for better attention and then take it OUTSIDE again! There is flexibility in this class to address behaviors that are particular to each group’s needs.
Thursday July 14th & 21st 6pm to 6:45
Price: $90 +HST
*Valid on private training sessions scheduled from June to August 2022. This offer is provided by City Dogs for training services only.

We will work with you to achieve your goals through science-based methods that are educational and fun for both you and your dog.
