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

Work with a trainer for five one hour sessions. 

This program is for dogs who are experiencing fear, anxiety, aggression, frustration-reactivity and hyperactivity. 

After we gather all the information about your dogs behaviour,  we design a program based on you and your dogs needs. Foundational training like leash walking, getting your dogs focus onto you, teaching them how to relax and how you can appropriately communicate with your dog will be covered. Our goal is for you to have a dog you can take anywhere. 

Please note: 

This program is not suitable for puppies who are nipping, biting and jumping. We encourage you to start with our basic obedience program to help set your puppy up for success.
