About Us


The Dogma difference.

We’re teaching dogs and owners all kinds of new tricks. What a treat.

Like a dog with a bone, we’re committed to giving you and your dog the tools you need to make your life together the best it can be. 

Our training programs and day school curriculums were developed by our owner, Megan Stanley. In order to achieve unparalleled levels of success with our clients, she has earned the highest possible accreditation available for dog trainers – the CBCC-KA. She was one of the first of four people in Canada, and remains one of a select few worldwide, to hold this elite status.

At Dogma, you and your dog benefit from the best and most up-to-date techniques in dog training today. We focus on the positive and use only supportive training practices to achieve our quick and measurable results.

We know what a dog needs to be successful and so we adhere to strict dog to trainer ratios in both our daycare and training classes. Each and every dog in our care gets the time and attention they deserve – a lot. 

Dogma day school guides dogs through a variety of subjects each day. At the end of the day, you’re taking home a dog with better basic obedience skills, and better manners.
