PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED PROGRAM
If you’ve been looking for an alternative to dog daycare or if your dog maybe isn’t the biggest fan of going for walks, our ProTrain HOME option is for you! This offering is based on a T-P-T approach; train – play – train, allowing your dog the opportunity to absorb information, “recover” through play, and then either work on an additional skill or reinforce what we originally worked on!
For an hour at a time, an Align Canine Professional Trainer will work with your dog in the comfort and safety of your home. The first twenty minutes will be comprised of skill building training and general behaviour development, followed by twenty minutes of mentally and physically stimulating play and engagement options, and topped off with another twenty minutes of skill building time!
Skills that we focus on include basic positions (sit, lay down, go-to-heel, place, etc.) and behaviours (thresholds aka not rushing out doors, leave it, drop it, etc.). Play can involve us loading pre-existing puzzle toys, appropriate tug games, scatter feeding, hiding “treasures” (aka treats) indoors or outdoors in your yard, etc. We are also happy to discuss specific things that you’d like your dog to learn as well!
ProTrain HOME means we do the traveling AND the training; you and your dog enjoy the outcome.
Skills & Behaviour
Choose from a list of Basic Commands and Behaviours or inquire about the possibility of adding commands that are specific to you and your pup! This option is ideal for both Puppies and Adult Dogs who could use some brushing up on Basic Skills so that they're more fun to live with on the day-to-day!
Examples include: Sit, Down, Stay, Place,
Go-to-Heel, Thresholds, Polite Greetings, etc.
Our dogs' brains can only absorb so much at one time. That means that after starting off the session with some training, we're going to PLAY! in the middle so that your dog can absorb what they've learned and build a positive association with learning.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Fill out our ProTrain HOME Application.
This is a basic application that lets us know that you'd like us to be in touch and gives us some really preliminary information about your dog and what you're interested in.
We get in touch.
If we have any additional questions, we'll reach out via email. Otherwise, if everything looks good to go, we'll send you a link for a Preliminary Introduction during which our Trainer will meet you and your dog, go over what you'd like to select for sessions, ensure that you understand the program requirements, and get a key/code from you if needed!
Book your sessions.
Once you've had your Preliminary Introduction, you'll be provided with a booking link that you can use to book your future sessions and that's that!
