TRAINING & SERVICES

At All About Dogs emphasis is placed on modification of the dog’s behaviour through non-coercive and non-aversive methods.  Using aggression to cure aggression does not work.

Agility is a fabulously fun sport that can be played by people and dogs of all ages and sizes! You and your dog navigate a series of obstacles using only verbal commands and body language.

Most dogs love to run, jump and climb, so they quickly get hooked on training and playing with you which develops a strong relationship between you and your dog.

Regular grooming stimulates the skin and improves vitality. It keeps your dog’s fur free of dirt, tangles and allows skin to breathe. Grooming is essential to your dog’s health and well being!

We care about our clients

At All About Dogs we really do 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 choose us

  • 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

What our clients say about us:

  • I would like to thank all the staff members for the kind and knowledgeable approach to myself and our new family member.
    I having nothing but gratitude for the service they provide and the patience shown to us as new dog owners.

  • 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!

  • 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!

    Caitlin & Phoebe
  • 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.

    Wendy & Rachel
  • I can never say enough good things about All About Dogs, Renee and her gang are amazing with pets. My Monty went for puppy classes and loved it so much that we started agility and even were in the house league. Never was there a time he wasn’t happy to see them or be there. They truly care not just about the pets but their owners too. Kind and effective pet training. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!

    Jill Oliver
  • It’s impossible to overstate just how wonderful All About Dogs is. Terrific training, phenomenal facilities, spectacular spirit. You really can do no better than this for a positive experience for you and your dog. Renee and crew are second to none!

  • I have since gotten Paris’ CGN and showed her at her first match and won Best in Match/Best Puppy in Match. 🙂 Handling classes = results.

  • Can’t recommend the Show Handling class enough!! The content is fantastic. I’ve done drop-in classes, and full-day seminars and I got more out of one class than all the other’s combined.
