Basic Obedience Program

Our four-week basic obedience program is the perfect starting point for you and your dog.

The program runs once a week for four weeks in a group or private setting. Your dog will learn the basic commands which include loose leash walking, impulse control, recall, down, eye contact and more.

Obedience training will set your dog up for success and will make them the loyal, obedient and respectful dog you have always wanted.

Group

Our classes are held at various Bosley’s locations across the Greater Victoria area. Each class is one hour per week for four weeks. This is a great opportunity for your canine companion to learn the basic commands with minor distractions and provides some extra socialization.

All participants are required to show proof of first/second set of vaccines plus Bordetella (Kennel Cough), as well as fill out our online waiver before joining this class.

Behaviour Modification

Group Program

Are you struggling to walk down the street with your dog due to their barking, growling, and/or lunging on leash? Is their behaviour interfering with your quality of life, and theirs? This five-session group program is designed for dogs experiencing anxiety, over-arousal, and reactivity. We will use a holistic approach that addresses lifestyle, stress, exercise, socialization, and training, to create a calmer and more confident dog. You will gain a deeper understanding of reactivity, stress, over-arousal, body language, and various management techniques. We will set up situations that allow your dog to learn relaxation and emotional regulation, to create positive new habits. You will receive a comprehensive booklet to follow as we go through the course, weekly homework assignments, in-class demonstrations, and opportunities to rehearse your dog’s skills. You will also receive access to our behaviour modification Facebook group.

Please note: If your dog is extremely fearful and shut down or has a bite history our private training behaviour modification will most likely be a better fit. If you’re not sure whether this program is right for you and your dog, please contact us to set up a 30-minute consultation before registering.
