Day School

At Dogma, we limit the number of dogs in each class to a maximum of 10 to ensure safety and quality. We’re the only day school facility in Calgary with a curriculum developed by a DCBC, CPDT-KSA, and CBCC-KA certified dog trainer. At Dogma, your dog receives a level of instruction usually reserved for people attending high-level dog training classes.

The early stages of your dog’s life are a critical time for learning, and we want to make the best of it. Classes are fun, active, and challenging – perfect for energetic puppies.

First day assessments are required for enrollment and can be booked on specific days at each location to ensure the best experience for your puppy. These are critical to ensure your puppy feels safe and has a positive, stress-free safe first day.

This structured training and socialization program will improve and maintain your dog’s behaviour and social skills. While your dog socializes and plays with their classmates, our certified trainers will teach them obedience training, polite manners, and self control. Let us do the bulk of the work for you so you can better enjoy time with your dog.

Once your dog has earned their DogmaHigh diploma, it’s on to higher learning. The DogmaU course load includes work on your dog’s basic obedience skills, socialization, manners, and more. As your dog achieves each degree, they’ll be mastering skills making them the polite and well-behaved dog of your dreams.


When your dog has mastered basic obedience, manners, attention, and socialization, they become DogmaAlum. These dogs have graduated out of the Dogma program and no longer need a structured and individualized training plan. They transition to become mentors to the younger dogs joining our school while continuing to enjoy the added enrichment that Dogma offers.

Rates and Requirements

We accept all breeds, ages, and sizes of dog. Just like any great private school, your dog has to pass some requirements in order to make the roster.
