Want to take your training to the next level? Make your dream of working with dogs come true.
Don’t get the wrong idea! I’m a firm believer in humane and respectful training. You won’t see me giving the leash a good “pop” to get a dog’s attention, nor will you hear me tell folks that they should be the dominant one in their relationship with their dog. I
Here's a great little list entitled 'What Every Pet Owner Needs to Know About Dog Trainers' I really like #10 - "Just because dog training is an unregulated industry doesn’t mean that some of us are not preparing ourselves and learning to train as though it was". That i
Here is what some of our clients say about their experience with the Ottawa Canine School
Christina & Whisky
Our son LOVED everything about Summer Camp for Kids & Dogs, from making dog treats to dog toys and the paw prints. He was so excited every day to go to camp, rushing me when we were stuck in traffic because he didn't want to be late. Chantal was accommodating to our son's needs; she was very aware when Willem was fixating on certain things and she was flexible and helped him work through it. I was very impressed that you brought in a professional to work on the dog paw prints with the kids. Thank you for running such an amazing program!
Adrien & Desmond
We took Basic Obedience with April. There were lots of useful tips on dog handling, clear instructions, and good feedback which always included something positive. The instructor was always cheerful and patient; she watched carefully and had useful guidance.
Mark and Dixie
We took Agility level II. There were lots of useful tips on dog handling, clear instructions, and good feedback which always included something positive. The instructor was always cheerful and patient; she watched carefully and had useful guidance.
Monique and Laddy
Chantal is very positive and cheery; also calm at all times. This is much appreciated. Thank you, Chantal, for making these classes so much fun. I can’t believe the change in Laddy. He’s now a well-behaved and attentive dog.
Yves And Grace
This summer me and Grace took the Loose Leash Walking course offered at Ottawa Canine School. This was an excellent course. It was a 4 one hour session that provided me with techniques, games and great tips that help me teach Grace to walk without pulling. The instructor was attentive and knowledgeable. Colette took the time to demonstrate and corrected us when needed and gave us the necessary time to practice. I would highly recommend this course to everyone…
Tara and Bo
From week 9 of Bo’s life, your school has been the best thing that has happened to us. Bo and I learned so much (in the Total Recall class). Her emergency recall word is the most important skill we have learned to date. We’re proofing the skill in different situations and she’s doing fabulously. We’ve learned it so well that I am fully confident of her return if need be.
