Group Training Classes

Our group dog training classes are located in West Montrose and are a fun and sociable way to learn basic obedience with other dogs and their people. Group training offers an excellent, structured situation to socialize dogs in a controlled manner. Our classes are not like most, we believe there is a difference between having an obedient dog and a well behaved dog, we teach you to have both.

The class enrolments are kept to a comfortable size so each participant receives the individual attention and assistance they need to succeed.

(we do not run classes on long weekends)

  • Pre registration per class required.

  • We offer a variety of options. Our Drop In Classes are for dogs who have already done training with us. Our freedom Unleashed requires dogs to have done our 4 lesson private package or our Foundation Obedience Class prior to registration.

Book An Evaluation

An in-person evaluation determines eligibility for any of our programs. We do not accept dogs over the age of 5 months without an evaluation first. We will determine if your dog is a good candidate for one of our program and will suggest some options depending on your dog. Our sport classes may require training prior to joining these classes, this will be determined in our evaluation.

Organized Chaos- Behaviour Class

Our group class begins with us working with your dog in one of our Private, Day Training or Board & Train programs to build a basic foundation with your dog and focus on the things that you feel like you need the most help with and prepare you and your dog to be around other dogs. Most dogs can focus in environments where distractions are limited or controlled, like the house or training facility.

But you can’t control distractions in the real world. Instead, you must teach your dog to focus on you no matter where you are or what is going on around you. So how do you teach your dog to listen no matter what? It’s simple but requires some planning and management. This is the class that will help your dog understand that these commands still apply in the face of more enticing opportunities. The focus of this class is on getting dogs to obey their owners in the presence of distractions. This class is great for dogs that need help working through behavioural issues.

What to Bring

  • treat pouch
  • 6 ft leash
  • 15 ft long line
  • prong collar or martingale, halti( depending on the dog) (dog must be under control)
  • E-Collar (over 6 months) is welcome

Freedom Unleashed E-collar class

Who doesn’t want a dog that’s reliable off leash? From hiking in the woods to running in a park to simply hanging around the house, it would be hard to find someone who isn’t interested in having a dog who listens to them no matter what the circumstances.

This course is designed to take your basic obedience trained dog to the next level.  We will over 6 group sessions help you condition your dog to the ecollar (remote training collar) and will teach you how to overlay it to known commands that your dog has already learned in previously training with us.

Your dog can also be off-leash with 100% trust has so many benefits. It helps ten-fold with exercise because they are not confined to a leash, you gain plenty of trust with your dog, socializing is made much easier, and it’s obviously a safety issue! So what is an e-collar used for, exactly? We call it an “invisible leash”. We teach the dog that the e-collar and the leash mean the same thing. The collar is controlled by a remote that the handler holds. The remote allows you to maintain full control of your dog for up to 400 yards! Therefore, it gives your dog a lot of freedom and it saves you from worrying about your dog running off!

What you will learn

  • Pressure & Release
  • How to use the leash for communication
  • Basic commands with the e-collar for sit, down, stay, place, basic leash walking and come when called.
  • Building upon your dog’s comprehension of basic obedience commands, we will show you how to increase your dog’s attentiveness in the face of everyday distractions.
  • How to size a remote collar
  • Components of a Remote collar
  • Stimulation levels and finding the right one
  • Difference between Continuous and Stim
  • Reinforce already known behaviours ( such as commands)
  • Remove unwanted behavious (digging, barking, counter surfing)

This includes

  • 6 classes
  • 1st class is with no dogs.

Dogs will need for this class

  • Prong or martingale
  • E-collar Technologies Mini Educator ($299.99 plus HST)

We are currently doing private lessons here and can’t say enough great things! Our puppy Roxy can be a handful but the training techniques keep her focused and are making a huge impact on her.

Shanna has been such a pleasure to work with – never once have we felt rushed out after our scheduled time with her – she answers all the questions I have with such a great attitude. You can tell she truly cares about the people and dog client.

The pricing for the private lessons are very reasonable for the 1:1 attention we get with Shanna.

Thank you again and I look forward to a long working relationship with you and our dog.


Shanna did an excellent job with my girl Pepper!! Very professional and up to date training methods!! I would highly recommend this excellent training program!!!


Shanna’s training goes back to the basics with engagement. With our challenging pup that is exactly what we needed.
