Canine Minds and Manners offers specialized puppy training classes in Calgary. Proper training and socialization at an early age are crucial for ensuring that puppies grow up to be well-behaved and happy dogs. Canine Minds and Manners classes:

  1. Are taught by Certified Professional Trainers: Having certified trainers and skilled assistants is essential for providing quality education to both puppies and their owners. It ensures that the trainers have a deep understanding of dog behaviour and effective training techniques.
  2. Training methods: We use positive reinforcement methods and management strategies based on learning theory principles to encourage the behaviours you want to see from your dog while also building a strong bond of trust and understanding.
  3. Class Structure: Puppy training classes are structured to provide assistance, solutions, socialization, and skills. This holistic approach is excellent because it focuses on not just obedience but also the overall well-being of the puppy.
  4. Class Duration: The 6-week duration is a common and effective length for puppy training classes. It allows for consistent learning and practice over time, which is crucial for reinforcement.
  5. Time per Class: 45-minute classes strike a balance between keeping puppies engaged and not overwhelming them with long sessions. It's crucial for maintaining their attention and enthusiasm.
  6. Reputation: Canine Minds and Manners is the most trusted name in Calgary for dog and puppy training and canine behaviour modification.

Our Calgary puppy training classes are designed for puppies 10-22 weeks of age, having had their second set of shots. Your puppy must start classes by no later than 16 weeks old. Please register early as classes fill very quickly.
