Build your bond with your dog by learning together.
Take advantage of dog training sessions that accommodate your busy schedule and take place in your home, and your neighbourhood. Diamond in the Ruff travels all over Edmonton, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, St. Albert and surrounding areas. Whether you have a puppy, an older dog, or several dogs, private dog training is a fast, effective and proactive approach. You and your dog will love our positive, rewards-based instruction.
During your Private Dog Training Session(s) we can address:
Manners, including polite greetings, loose leash walking, waiting at the door, coming when called and sharing toys and treats.
Problem behaviour, such as jumping on people, pulling on the leash, barking, anxiety, shyness and guarding things. Handlers with an aggressive dog sometimes feel more relaxed working on this behaviour at home. Colleen specializes in dealing with dogs experiencing Dog/Dog aggression or Dog/Human aggression issues, without the use of pain, fear or intimidation.
Puppy basics, including house training, chewing, puppy nipping, handling, socialization and basic dog obedience commands like sit, down, come, stay, watch me, drop it… and many more!
Group Classes are a fantastic learning tool for dogs and owners alike. They offer an opportunity for dogs to become comfortable with other dogs, individuals and environments while learning a variety of skills ranging from trick training, scent detection or agility to certifications like Canine Good Citizen.
Group classes vary by season and interest. Here is an outline of our class offerings, but to see what is coming up please check our Book Online page.
