“This session has provided a better understanding of how my dog thinks and reacts in all situations. I am amazed by the progress realized in such a short time.” - Cameron H, Edmonton
“Our dogs did a 180 from the beginning of classes to the completion.” - Thomas I, St Albert
"The class was an excellent re-enforcement of the principles we learned from Cesar Millan and you helped us LEARN how to put Pack Leader techniques into practice for everyday life. Our dog has become calm-submissive and an excellent, fulfilled boy! I think most beneficial was at the first 2 classes the 'human training' and information (it set us up for success). The quality of the session is awesome." - Martina W, Edmonton

Do you want your dog to stop jumping on people?
Do you want your dog to stop barking at everything that moves?
Do you want to have a stress-free walk with your dog?
Does your dog’s behaviour need modifying?
At The Urban Dog we will teach:
- How to become a strong pack leader using natural methods
- How to communicate with your dog in his/her language, so they can better understand what you are asking of them
- How to set rules, boundaries and limitations
- The proper way to walk your dog
- That safety must always come first with your dog
Many behavioural issues come from your dog having been put in a position of being the pack leader, which, most dogs do not want this position. When you and your family learn how to take the position of pack leader, you will watch your dog's behavioural issues quickly disappear.
