In-home Training and Behaviour Modification 8-week Group Beginner Obedience Click to Enrol Now

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, Come, Down, 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.

We provide PRIVATE behavioural lessons and GROUP obedience classes, both indoors and outdoors, running all year round.

Our PRIVATE behavioural lessons are offered in home and/or outdoors, 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 amongst other dogs. Between April and September, these classes take place outdoors, in city streets, nature trails, and parks; all of which provide your dog with exposure to various scent, sound, and visual distractions within changing environments. Between October and March, these classes take place at an indoor training facility.
