Noodle and I absolutely love training here! It’s better than anywhere else that we have tried. Noodle is an anxious and reactive dog who is also very friendly and loving. Here he was able to learn how to react better to what causes him anxiety, and I was better able to help him cope and recognize the signs that he was going to become reactive. We also appreciate that when taking Good Manners, or Agility, or other classes, the instructors are giving tips and tricks about things like resource guarding, reactivity, etc. which creates a really well-rounded class! Both of our lives have significantly improved since we found Ottawa K9 School.
– Emily + Noodle
The course is well structured, the learning curve is well thought out (adding skills on top of previously developed skills, ex.: LLW). Easy to understand and follow. Having access to recording after the class was very much appreciated since it allowed me to review/make sure I understood and retained the essential.
Love the online/remote modality! I found the weekly classes offered great structure, motivation and support in raising my puppy!
Chantal is very knowledgeable and has a talent for communicating complex operations in an accessible way. She was able to answer everyone’s questions on the spot ad provide additional resources when helpful.
– Jesse + Samus
The course (Basic Good Manners Online) covers some very important fundamentals and is taught in a way that empower the dog owner to think like a trainer and offer meaningful challenges that build their dog’s confidence. Chantal was knowledgeable, patient and offered helpful advice and modifications that met the needs of each individual dog.
