Playgroups & Group Training

 Clients love our playgroup! It’s safe, fun, and educational.

Our group training classes are like semi privates with very small numbers! You get ample 1:1 coaching. Dogs don’t get overlooked or overwhelmed.

 

Get quality socialization at our playgroups. Our groups are not over-crowed free for alls. Guardians learn about dog play and body language, and how to safely manage dogs off lead. We offer best practice dog/human ratios and optimal duration (45 mins). Our goal is for you AND your dog to enjoy your time with us, to build confidence in social settings, and learn about positive play skills and dog behavior. We also offer group training classes on popular topics. We send a What’s On email at the end of each month with our group training class schedule for the upcoming month. Request to be put on our mailing list, so you don’t miss out!

Our group classes are run by a certified dog trainer and behavior expert, who has been running group sessions for over 10 years. Our groups are fun, safe, transparent, educational and effective. We use positive methods only, so there is no risk to your dog developing behavior issues on our watch!

Group classes are held at Stanley Park (plenty of room to run!). Your dog will have wonderful socialization experiences off lead in a beautiful clean environment, and you will too! Groups are designed for friendly dogs. Fearful, aggressive, and reactive dogs, need to start with private training. 

Investment Options:

Assessment

Dogs over 18 weeks old must start with a 10-15 minute assessment. This allows us to ensure playgroup is a good fit, and group everyone by play style, age, and size in mind.

Assessments are $25. If your dog is a good fit for playgroup, you can use $10 of that assessment cost towards the cost of your first playgroup.

  • Puppies between 10 and 16 weeks may start without an assessment. Please fill out the intake form and send us your Vet documents. 
  • If your dog hasn’t attended within 5 months, they must be re-assessed.

Please read our company policies and agreements in full before booking an assessment. LINK

Group Training 

Each month we will hold a few group training classes to work on a chosen topic, like recall or manners behaviors in a group setting. We do deep dives on a specific topic per class vs. cramming too many in one class. This builds stronger behavior. You will receive homework and video demos. 

Groups are kept very small so you receive plenty of one-on-one coaching and dogs are less likely to get overwhelmed. The date and topic for group training will be announced at the end of each month for the following month via email and social media. Request to be put on our email list! 

$50 per dog for non-membership holders
