- Learn the basics of puppy ownership in a fun and non-judgemental environment.
We use rewards-based, non-aversive training techniques. Our goal is a strong relationship between you and your puppy.
Our approach centers around realistic techniques and effective management tools to foster a harmonious existence for your new family member.
We can tailor your lessons to the issues you need help solving, your priorities, and your family circumstance.
Director and Coach
Jake got his start with animals working at the SPCA Summer Day camps teaching kids to care for their pets. While doing this Jake also began to take an interest in psychology while attending UBC. It was a natural fit for Jake to take his passion for animals and psychology and turn it towards teaching humans how to teach their pets. These days, Jake mentors our retail team on how to educate clients in store. When he's not training dogs Jake loves to cook, listen to music and wrestle with the 2 little ones.
Designed to allow Jake to get to know you, your dog's history, and to learn some theory all from the comfort of your own home.
We recommend an in-person training session only once this virtual consultation has been completed in order to be able to work on more practical activities rather than theory.
Get in person support after your first virtual session.
Practical pointers and practicing with Jake there to walk you through the steps.
