I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for mentioning about your new chiropractor. I was able to make an appointment for Hudson on Dec. 19th at your new facility, and although he didn’t like the adjustment at all, it managed to subside his limp immensely. Hudson is also seeing the chiropractor on a weekly basis to work on some of the tenderness he seems to have. Like I said, he doesn’t like it, and he has to be muzzled, but it truly is doing wonders for him.

If it wasn’t for you and your team mentioning it, I wouldn’t have thought to bring Hudson back to a chiropractor, so I thank you immensely!

Happy Chiropractic Client!

All About Dogs has been an incredible support during this first year of my pup’s life. From the very first puppy class where she learned how to play properly (and I learned how to work with her 10-week old brain!) through to the fun, fast-paced agility classes we continue to enjoy, Renee and her team have been there every step of the way. They take the time to respond to questions, offer personalized instruction and advice, and embody positive reinforcement in all their methods and approaches. They really care about their clients and find a way to connect individually with each dog. Among the best advice I received was to take puppy agility concurrently with the early puppy training class. My pup’s confidence grew with each class and our bond was strengthened by this perfect combination of structure and fun. I see the benefits of this solid foundation in my training and agility work, but also in social situations and out on the street. People can’t believe how calm and well behaved she is for her age! This is an incredible facility with great equipment and room for each activity, surpassed only by the staff who welcome you in. Thank you for everything!!

All about dogs is one of those rare companies whose name says exactly what it is. The team became an immediate support system for our dog, offering advice on everything from toys to nutrition. But the key is the training. Renee is a master teacher and trainer. I feel a strong sense of pride whenever my ten-month-old puppy sits calmly and attentively when I instruct her to, all the more so when grown dogs are all around her, their frantic owners pleading with them to calm down. I highly recommend the classes at All About Dogs!

I feel very lucky by ending up at AAD and meeting Renee, Brittany and the rest of the team. I honestly don’t know how my stubborn little english bulldog baby would turn out if not for the gentle and patient guidance provided by Renee. She would notice the smallest detail and correct you, which would magically change everything. It feels like Renee had experience with every possible issue that could appear in bringing up a puppy, training an adult dog and … educating the owner. Also, dogs ADORE Renee, you have to see how the look at her and how they listen to her. I would absolutely recommend AAD to those who care about their doggys and would like to establish great relationship with them.

We found Renee through a friend of ours who works at the local vets, and what a stroke of luck. Angus loves his agility so much he cries while he waits his turn. Renee makes the classes fun for everyone, positive training all round, dogs and owners 😉 All About Dogs has opened my eyes to the fun and enjoyment you and your canine buddy can have, the possibilities seem endless. Renee has saved my dog from a life of boring walks and monotonous days on the couch. We have done trick training, agility, nutritional seminars and a first aid course at All about Dogs and enjoyed every thing they have to offer. The facility is top notch, clean and spacious. All the equipment is great, even the flooring is designed for your dogs comfort and safety! I cannot say enough about how great Renee and her team is!!

Taking my dog to All About Dogs is the best thing I’ve ever done for my dog and for myself. The classes are so much fun, the facilities are great and really well taken care of and everyone there is friendly. Renee is the best instructor, and I’ve been to a few different obedience classes around the city. Not only does she take the time to give each dog/person individual attention and instruction but she really helps me understand what I am trying to teach him and why. I first went for an obedience refresher for my dog and we are now in our 4th agility class. My dog’s behaviour has improved drastically and I have a much better understanding of him and his behaviours. I recommend to anyone and everyone looking into classes for their dog to go to All About Dogs.

Our family has been taking classes at All About Dogs since January 2011 – mainly agility with a bit of Rally thrown in. Renee makes the classes fun while also effectively conveying the techniques needed to build a good working partnership between human and dog.

We found Renee at All About Dogs a couple of years ago through a friend. I am so happy we signed up! Phoebe is involved in the agility classes there, and she couldn’t be happier! She cries and whines with excitement when we tell her we are going to see Renee and do agility! Always positive methods – never punishment, which is how dog training should be! I highly recommend All About dogs to anyone for training, agility, and anything and everything else you need!

All About Dogs is a magical place for dogs (ant their owners too)! Renee helped my Rachel build her confidence thru agility training and helped me to be a better owner. An A1 experience.

We care about our clients!

At All About Dogs we care about our clients, both two-legged and four-legged. We want to help you build the very best relationship you can with your dog. We want both you and your dog to build confidence and have fun doing it.

We believe positive reinforcement training is the best way to create a happy and confident dog who understands what is expected of them.

We teach owners how to establish boundaries at home and employ problem behaviour prevention strategies from early puppyhood onwards. Training and behaviour problems are resolved without the punishment- based techniques that commonly result in fear, aggression, or deterioration of the bond between dog and owner.

Why we are different

  • We believe positive reinforcement training is the best way to train
  • Positive methods based on well-established learning theories and behavioural science tht are humane, practical and effective
  • We teach marker-based training, either with a clicker or word, combined with rewards of all kinds
  • Our training programs reflect a comprehensive understanding of the dog’s natural behaviour
  • We consider learning abilities as well as the dog’s mental and physical developmental stages before placing in class
  • We believe that the human part of the training equation needs as much support and understanding as the canine component
