Board & Train

Welcome to My Obedient Dog, where we teach you the language of dog. Our dog training school specializes in Behaviour Training and Obedience Training.

Behaviour Training is understanding how dogs communicate, why they do what they do, as well as the meaning behind their body language and eye contact. Behaviour Modification is described as 'changing the daily unwanted behaviour of the dog'.

Obedience Training, on the other hand, focuses on teaching your dog to reliably respond to verbal commands or hand signals on your first command. Such commands include Sit, Stay, Down, Come, Out, and more.

Just like humans, dogs speak their own language. Everything they do is for a reason. When they live with us, we often fail to understand or misinterpret their actions. That's when we run into problems resulting in unwanted and unbalanced behaviour.

Most dogs are not born to be leaders, just as most people cannot lead an army or run a company. Dogs need to have someone 'in-charge' 100% of the time. If no one will do it, they will take on the role. This can result in a slew of problems, including a stressed out and unbalanced dog.

When we take on the leadership role - providing rules, boundaries, and limitations - we're able to understand, address, and prevent behaviour problems from arising.

The sound knowledge and practical training you will acquire at My Obedient Dog, will make you a better owner, make your dog a better companion, and make your home a better place. With this newfound understanding, the relationship with your dog will transform into trust, respect, love, and companionship. The benefits of having a calm, compliant, obedient dog are so great, that becoming a responsible owner deserves whatever time it takes to do it right.


In-Home Training & Behaviour Modification consists of private, in-home lessons that provide you with the tools and techniques to address and correct unwanted behaviour. They are designed to educate you about dog psychology, teach you the language of dog, and enable you to be a leader in your dog's life.

Puppy Training consists of private, in-home lessons that provide you with the knowledge and tools in raising a puppy. Topics include housebreaking, crate training, leash walking, leadership training, handling, socialization, and more.

Board & Train is an intense 4-week program, where your dog will stay at our home while undergoing behavioural and obedience training both indoors and outdoors to help reshape and balance their state of mind.

Beginner Obedience is an 8-week curriculum that provides essential obedience training for the family dog. You will learn to execute useful, everyday commands to which your dog will reliably respond. Offered in both group and private.

Intermediate Obedience is a 10-week, second-level curriculum that covers realistic, off-leash training at increased distances, time intervals, and distractions, which allow you to assert full control of your dog. Offered in both group and private.

Loose-Leash Walking is a private, 4-week program that provide you with the proper tools and techniques to have your dog walk on a loose leash. Emphasis is placed on leadership training, where your dog follows you without pulling or sniffing.

Treadmill Training consists of private lessons that teach you how to walk your dog comfortably and safely on a treadmill. It's a great way for your dog to release pent up energy in a productive and controlled manner.

Off-Leash Recall consists of private lessons that teach you to have your dog come to you on the first command, under any given circumstance.

We provide PRIVATE and GROUP training, both indoors and outdoors, running all year round. Our PRIVATE behavioural lessons are offered in-home, wherever the problem behaviour(s) take place, and provide one-on-one training for you and your dog. Our GROUP obedience classes take place in a group setting, allowing your dog to learn and comply in the presence of other dogs.

We serve clients across the GTA and York Region, including Toronto, North York, Thornhill, Vaughan, Markham, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Newmarket, Stoufville, King City, and East Gwillimbury.
