Puppy classes are one of the most important things you can do for your puppy! This class is designed for puppies under 5 months of age and focuses on safe socialization, basic obedience and handling. Classes are limited to a maximum of 6 puppies for safety. These classes run in sets of 6 and are available on Wednesday evenings at Romeo Pet Hospital in Stratford, Ontario.
(Reactive Dog Class)
Sarah has been teaching Breakfast Club (aka reactive dog class) for over 10 years. Starting in British Columbia and inspired by Pam Dennison's book, Bringing Light To Shadow, Sarah started a class for dogs to work on their challenges in a controlled environment.
Each dog is set up with individual "working" turns, in which scenarios are designed to work on your dog's reactivity below threshold while rewarding appropriate behaviour. In between "working" turns, your dog can go on a sniff walk around the 60 acre farm or stick around to help other dogs.
This class is outdoors and is weather permitting. It is not held during months with snow. Ideal candidates for Breakfast Club are dogs who have completed some training with Sarah or another canine professional as Breakfast Club is all about getting in repetitions to practice good behaviour. Please contact for more information.
Tracking and scent detection classes are occasionally offered on the farm. These classes are outdoor classes and are currently not available in winter months. Please contact for availability.
