Your dog doesn’t do well with other dogs and you need a safe place for them to stay

This is why we offer Free Evaluations. We meet with you one on one and go over
- The issues concerning your dog
- Areas you are struggling with
- Suggestions you can get started on right away.

- We meet with you and your dog before you go away.
Endeavour K9 has a simple, flexible process to produce a truly customizable approach to suit you, your dog, and the things you wish to achieve.
Realistic goals, milestones to reach, which pieces you need to start to teach first and how to begin that work – we’ll coach you put all the pieces together.
After striking out with a first trainer who did not believe in certain training equipment, we discovered Shanna and her new training and boarding business. Tucker (and frankly maybe more Rob and I) have learned a lot to keep him safe and us sane. At 22 months and nearly 100 pounds we are now fine tuning his training with an e collar and private lessons. Tucker and his buddy Samantha also boarded. So comforting to know Shanna and her staff know us and our dogs . Heartily recommend her to anyone who wants the best for their best friends!!

Why You Can Trust Us
We have helped 100’s of dogs since we started training in 2010. We offer a variety of services to help and maintain your training even while you are away. We help you get the results you want.
Endeavour K9 focuses on the holistic approach to solving common and difficult problems. We offer an environment that is conducive to learning for all who attend our training facility.
We believe that there are several factors to take in to consideration when training a dog.
- Obedience– We’ll help you to build the behaviour that you’d prefer to see from your dog, and interferes with the expression of less desirable behaviour.
- Management– The most overlooked and under appreciated parts of a dog training process. In fact, it may be the most important tool in your toolbox. By managing your dogs environment it prevents them from continuing to rehearse unwanted behaviour problems during their foundation training. It also helps maintain the dog’s motivation for training, and contributes significantly to both the dog’s and trainer’s safety.
- Health- One of the first steps is to have your veterinarian evaluate and treat, if necessary, any medical conditions that may cause any contributing factors of the behaviour change.
- Engagement- have the dog think you are their world. Its not about other dogs or other people, its about you and your family
- Relationship- Working in a partnership with your dog does not allow your dog to do anything or everything it wants. Its about recognizing your dog is a dog and has needs. It also recognizes that you need to provide boundaries and structure to enable your dog to fit into your household.
Our goal is to help you produce happy, responsive, reliable behaviours in your dog over time – Training doesn’t stop, we will teach you what you don’t do as much as you need to do to get the dog you wanted.
The solutions we create through our work together and understanding why your dog is doing what they are doing, we will build on a solid understanding of your unique situation, considering all available tools and means as they may be relevant.
4 ways we can help you.
We offer a variety of options to to suit your need.
Our programs are designed for success and we provide support during and after most programs up to a year after training. We provide Private training, Day Training and Board & Trains Bootcamps for puppies (under 5 months) and adult dogs. We also provide group classes after your program is complete. All of our programs are designed to help you reach your training goals with effective, proven instruction and exceptional support.
We are an exclusive dog resort, not a regular boarding kennel. Our priority is your dog physical and mental well-being. We teach and maintain basic manners while your dog is here, which very few facilities do. As an educational dog resort we work on basic manners with the dogs in our care: including walking on a loose leash, waiting for their food, sitting and waiting at doorways and more, they are often rewarded in their rooms for being quiet.
Our retail is an appointment only facility. Please call before coming. We offer a selection of products including Ruff Land Performance Kennels, Raddog tug toys, Inukshuck Dog Food, Ryans’s Raw dog food & treats, West Paw and more.
Our Enrichment Daycare was created as the vision of what we wanted our current or previous clients dog’s to experience. A safe place to take their dogs after training and consistently offer them structure, rules and positive socialization.
We wanted the intimacy of being able to do touch up training with a small number of dogs, while providing structured downtime and enrichment.
Why Our Clients Are Different
Understanding there is a problem and through work they get results. Working together to find out why your dog is doing what they are doing.
They ask questions, make sure they understand what they are doing, seek feedback, check in, do the work, and put in the time and effort to achieve.
They stick with their program through the ups and downs. They understand that dog training is a lifestyle and everything they do or don’t do they understand they are training their dog.
They actively listen and ask questions, and don’t hesitate to ask for help when needed. and how to begin that work – we’ll coach you put all the pieces together.
Owning a puppy during COVID was no easy task. Although it was lovely to have more time at home to spend with our magnificent little beast, he fed off any anxiety in the home (and there was lots) and did not have as many interactions in the community with people, places and things as he would have pre-COVID. Add in that Gotham is a Dutch Shepherd with some breed specific needs for training and we knew we could benefit from some professional support. Shanna at Endeavour completed an assessment and gave some helpful feedback. We enrolled in the Puppy Engagement class and immediately saw Gotham’s confidence rise. Obedience class was next and we started to really recognize Gotham’s potential as he is eager to learn when given the right directions. We look forward to doing more classes this year with Shanna and her team.
We have also been so thrilled with the boarding facilities at Endeavour. We have 100% confidence of Gotham’s care while he is there. Additionally, the store is a great place to shop for treats, equipment, food and supplies.
Thank you to Endeavour K9 for helping us to get to know our dog’s needs and abilities so he (and we) can develop!
