    “Andre’s advice was practical and easy to apply, and the one-on-one training from When Hounds Fly allowed us to change Jack’s behaviour.

    I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it – Jack, my Aussie Doodle, calm in a down position in the backyard while groundskeepers mowed the lawn and whirled garden debris with their deafening leaf blowers. This is the same dog, who a few weeks prior, would throw himself at the window growling and viciously barking at those same groundskeepers.”

    Training You’ll Feel Good About – A Commitment to Humane, Ethical Methods

    Clicker Training is the most effective way to teach behaviour, and make the learner (both human and dog!) feel supported and have a fun and enjoyable time learning. Results and speed matter, and clicker training is fast!

    An Experience Both You and Your Dog Will Enjoy

    Every time you train this way with your dog, they’ll light up and come to you with this look of eagerness, joy, and anticipation. Working with us means that training changes from something you do to your dog – into an activity that you and your dog can’t wait for. The connection you build with your dog through our training methods is something that you have to experience.

    In Your Neighbourhood, When You Need Us

    We believe every dog (and their owners) should benefit from socialization and training as part of their health and wellness. We’re in convenient locations, with classes nearly every day of the week, at convenient times. To keep you from waiting too long, our core classes are “Start Anytime”, so enrollment is on-going. For private lessons, we continue to grow our team (currently over 12 instructors) so you can see us as quickly as possible.

    “Hu, our trainer for Foundation Skills Level 2, was fantastic! He simulated real-life examples of quite a few of the exact scenarios we have been struggling.

    After the first class alone, our 18-month old Bernese Mountain Dog improved leaps and bounds!

    Now we can take her to patios, garden centres and even Home Depot without chaos! We would recommend When Hounds Fly to anyone.”
