WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING:

“Absolutely, great experience with Laurie. We learned a lot and have made a ton of progress with our dog. Laurie had lots of really useful advice and was so helpful in addressing any questions we had. She went above and beyond the course material and we never felt rushed through the class. Great facility, professional and knowledgeable staff! This has been a wonderful experience for our entire family and we look forward to our next class with Ottawa Canine School. Thank-you!!” – Carolyn

“We focussed on the most useful areas such as walking and recall. Chantal and her assistant were both excellent. They have a good understanding of how to work with your dog. These programs are excellent. I find that I have built a very good bond with my dog and everyone comments on how well behaved he is given his age.” – Julianne
