Private Training


We are offering private training, in home and at the Ottawa Canine School.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING EXTRA PRECAUTIONS WE ARE TAKING: * Your trainer will wash his or her hands before and after each session * We have instituted a NO-HANDSHAKE policy * Your trainer will not be touching your dog and will not be touching your leash * We ask that you limit the number of individuals attending the lesson to a MAXIMUM of 2 people * We require that you cancel your session if you (or any family member you are in regular contact with) is showing any signs of illness. If you cancel, you will have the option of either doing the session via Zoom (like Skype) or FaceTime or delay your in-person session by at least 2 weeks.

We love our clients, and we hope that you understand that in these strange times, extra precautions will be taken.


WE HAVE MADE IT EASY TO BOOK A SESSION AT THE SCHOOL. Choose your time slot, make the payment and fill out the questionnaire. Until group classes resume, we have evening and weekend openings.


Schedule Appointment


The Ottawa Canine School offers customized in-person training. Let us customize a training plan relevant to your dog’s needs and coach your every step of the way.

We can help with a variety of behaviour issues including separation anxiety, aggression/reactivity, baby preparation, fear-free veterinary or groomer visits, and more!


Please click on the blue button below to complete the application form. Once we receive your application, we will find a trainer for your case (approximately 2 to 14 days). Once a trainer is found, you will receive an invoice to book an appointment with your trainer. Then, your trainer will contact you to schedule an appointment. All appointments are confirmed upon receipt of full payment.
