How it Works

Dogma offers group training for puppies, adult dogs, and reactive dogs. All group training is available with a Dogma membership. Memberships are available for 2, 6, or 12 months and also provide exclusive access to clinics and day school.

Adult Training

Training begins after you watch your orientation webinar, which means that you get all the benefits of our elite training programs, right away! You and your dog will work through these three levels towards earning our urbanK9 title and certificate.

Foundations

These classes are held in a distraction-free indoor environment so that you and your dog can focus on the skills we teach. Following this class, your dog will be able to sit, stay, come when called, walk on a loose leash, and much more.

Focus & Reliability

Here we’ll continue to work on the skills you built in Foundations, with a focus on your dog’s focus and reliability. You and your dog will work together to overcome introduced obstacles and distractions. The result will be a well-mannered dog who is mastering self-control.

Real World

Our Real World training is all about helping your dog navigate the human world. We play games, and participate in exercises that you and your dog will enjoy in one of our education centres. We also venture out into off-leash parks and urban settings.

If your dog needs a little extra attention or is experiencing a particular behavioral problem, private training is for you. Learn more here.

Puppy Training

We want to help your pup start off on the right paw. So much so that we offer a free one-hour Planned Puppyhood webinar to help you determine which of our puppy training programs is right for you. We also offer two other puppy focused programs.

VIPups

This is our puppy-specific group class with obedience, leash, recall training, and more.

Puppy Playtime

Like a playdate between pups, this is a more casual compliment to your formal VIPups group training membership. Focus on developing great manners and socialization, and solve behavioural problems in these sessions. We host one a week and registration in advance is required.

Reactive Dog Training

Our human world has a lot going on, and all that busyness can be challenging and scary for a dog. We’ve developed training especially geared towards helping prepare dogs for success in the urban environment. This training program starts with a webinar about understanding reactivity that covers everything you need to know about dog behaviour and communication before tackling the hands-on class work that is broken down into three levels.

Reactive Foundations

These classes are held in a distraction-free indoor environment where you and your dog can focus on obedience skills. Choose the Focus Track or the Confidence Track, and by the end of the course, you will have a calmer and more attentive dog, well on the way to a strong foundation in the basics of focus and improved confidence. 

Reactive Focus & Reliability

This course ups the challenge by integrating in distractions and introducing obstacles. These classes include agility, movement, play, and other dogs and people. It’s all about building your dog’s confidence during interactions, and visiting places with loud sounds or fast-moving objects.

Reactive Real World

Here we take what we’ve learned together so far during the other Reactive Dog Training levels and apply it to the reality of the city. Together we’ll work with your reactive or fearful dog to apply and build their skills in the hustle and bustle of often unpredictable urban settings. Our goal is to give you and your dog the tools you need to ensure that no adventure is off limits.
