Private Lessons
Behaviour Modification
& Group Classes

We offer both Private Lesson and Behaviour Modification 
options in addition to our Group Classes. 

 

Our Private Lesson options focus on Skill Building - or, in other words - teaching puppies and dogs the physical actions that we want them to do when they are given commands such as;
Sit, Down, Come, Heel, Place, Stay, etc.

 

Skill Building Lessons also incorporate things like Loose Leash Walking, Neutrality towards dogs and people, and Polite Greetings, plus everything that we would associate with a new puppy who does not have any behavioural concerns!

Behaviour Modification Sessions address challenges that your dog may be having with regards to the way that they experience and react to the world around them. These sessions focus on issues such as; Reactivity, Aggression, Fear, Anxiety, Resource Guarding, etc.

Group Classes

Our Group Classes are organized into two different categories - Foundations and Enrichment - so that it's easy for you to find exactly what you're looking for! 

Foundations Classes focus on the skills that our dogs need in order to participate in as many aspects of daily life as possible, whereas Enrichment Classes provide our dogs with the mental and physical stimulation they require in order to keep them happy and healthy. 

All Align Canine Group classes are limited to a maximum of 6 Canine Participants per class. 

FOUNDATIONS - CANINE DEVELOPMENT
 

This class is designed to introduce you to all of the important aspects of raising and beginning training with your new puppy. 

While we touch on obedience skills like sit, down, etc., our focus in this class is to show you how to create confident, happy puppies, who are engaged and focused on you, who can ignore other dogs and people, and who have a great head start with things like loose leash walking, recall, and more! 

$250 + GST

FOUNDATIONS - CANINE FUNDAMENTALS


We leave things like "sit" to you and instead focus on life skills that your dog needs to have in order to be able to participate in as much of our lives as possible!

 

This class focuses on loose leash walking, calm neutrality around other dogs and people, recall building, "leave it", and more! 

$250 + GST

FOUNDATIONS - CANINE CONVENTIONAL


If you and your dog have taken our Canine Fundamentals (formerly Life Skills), or an equivalent class in the past, you'll be more than ready for Canine Conventional! 

This class is geared towards a more conventional and formal competition style obedience while utilizing existing skills and adding some new ones! We'll practice down stays, introduce vertical jumps, improve on recall, and work on formal focused heeling.

$225 + GST

FOUNDATIONS - PRACTICING NEUTRALITY

SINGLE SESSION CLASS
 

This option is available to any of our Canine Foundations Class graduates, including Canine Development, Fundamentals, and Conventional. It is also available to any pre-existing client of Align Canine who has completed a minimum of 1.5 hours of Private Lessons with an Align Canine Trainer! 

During this one-off group class, you and five other participants will work on loose leash walking, neutrality towards other dogs and people, and more! 

$45 + GST

ENRICHMENT - SCENT DETECTION


Scent Detection is not only an excellent way to stimulate your dog mentally, but it also improves confidence, strengthens the bond between you and your dog, and is an excellent way to train when you have limited space or time.

During class you will learn the theory of canine scent detection and get to put that theory into practice! We will be teaching the dogs as per SDDA (Sporting Detection Dog Association) rules.

Includes a Scent Detection Starter Kit. 

$285 + GST

ENRICHMENT - CONFIDENCE  & RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT


It can be difficult for dogs to learn how to be confident and self-assured in today's busy human world and we know COVID definitely did NOT help.

 

With that in mind, this class focuses on helping your dog overcome the many uncertainties that are present in our society while teaching you strategies to strengthen the relationship between the two of you! 

$280 + GST
