        Is your dog driving you nuts? Would you like to go away on vacation and come home to an excellently trained dog?

        Our board-and-train program specializes in rehabilitation, and successfully deals with canine behaviour problems. By focusing primarily on problem behaviour and difficult dogs, we’ve been able to develop a unique approach that not only transforms dogs, but also transfers seamlessly to the owners.

        We pride ourselves on our personalized approach with one-on-one attention paid to each individual dog and situation. 

        In the board and train, we address all forms of unwanted behavior, including, but not limited to:

        • Dog-to-Dog Aggression
        • Human Aggression
        • Food and/or Resource Guarding
        • Separation Anxiety
        • Severe Fear Issues
        • Reactivity On-Leash

        This program also covers all of the basic commands – Sit/Stay, Down/Stay, Place, Heel, Come/Recall – as well as Crate Training, Potty training, Waiting for Food, and Waiting at Thresholds.

        Duration of the program: 3-4 weeks

        *If your dog has major behavioural issues, the board and train program may be longer.

        At Obedience Unleashed Dog Training Inc., each day your dog receives:

        • two walks/hikes,
        • four personalized training sessions,
        • supervised social time with other dogs,
        • participation in our group obedience classes.

        Our Board and Train requires an Initial consultation prior to starting the program. After your dog completes the program, you receive 10 hours of follow-up handler training which is included, consisting of: 1 hour private go-home lesson upon pick up, 4 hours of group Off Leash Freedom class and 5 hours of Obedience & Socialization group walks held out and about in town.  During these sessions we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to ensure continued success. We also offer email and phone support during and after the program is completed.

        * Please contact us so we can help you assess your dog’s needs.

        Testimonials

        Olivia & Kai

        I absolutely love Obedience Unleashed. I was first introduced to them when I started bringing my rescue dog for group walks. She was reactive to other dogs and the group walks really helped her overcome some anxiety meeting other dogs. When I switched jobs and my dog could no longer come to work with me, I was super happy they were able to walk my dog while I’m at work. Their staff is amazing with my dog. I recently adopted a puppy as well so I needed daycare and they are the only ones I trust with my little pup. My puppy loves all their staff and loves going to daycare. Their trainers are really great and their puppy class has helped me learn how to teach both my dogs new skills. You can tell they take a lot of pride in their work and I truly appreciate the care and concern they show for both my dogs. They work with the dogs but they’re amazing with training the owners too.

        Ashleigh & Noodle

        I rescured Noodle, a 1-year-old Shepherd/Collie/Husky, who had primarily lived with other dogs rather than people and quickly realized I was in over my head on how to train her. She was hyperactive, restless in the house, mouthed during playtime or being pet, highly reactive to other dogs (and animals), pulled on a leash when out on walks, zero recall – the list goes on.  There was no amount of exercise that seemed to wear Noodle down!         

        After training with Tanja, she’s a completely different dog! She is calm in the house, will accept a belly rub from the kids without mouthing at their arms, and is responding more frequently to her name. Her basic obedience including leash walks is coming along nicely and I understand better how to manage her prey drive when a bunny crosses our path.  Tanja is an incredible dog trainer, not to mention people trainer too! She spent time to understand what motivated my dog to achieve her best and also supported/coached me to continue with Noodle’s progress.  While my dog still requires reinforcement, I feel more confident in managing her behaviour due to the great work Tanja has done with her.

        Thank you Tanja and Obedience Unleashed for helping Noodle become her best!
