We do not use and we discourage the use of choke collars, prong collars, electric shock collars, electric fencing or other tools or other methods of force-based training.  We believe in the proper use of learning theory and helping dogs learn to think for themselves.  It’s fun, fast and efficient – and you know what?  It lasts a lifetime!

Huffy Hounds – a Workshop Like no Other!

Do you have a Huffy Hound?

Is your dog reactive, fearful, frustrated, or aggressive?  You’re not alone.

We’re really excited about designing the best possible class scenario for helping people with reactive dogs. The goal is to help people make and see progress with their dogs throughout an ongoing series of classes.

$160 for 4 weeks, 1.5 hours – Coquitlam and North Vancouver locations

This class is a collaboration between Valerie Barry of In Partnership With Dogs and Pamela Murray of Canine Spirit (www.caninespirit.com).  The classes are group classes held in outdoor locations so we can help you with your dog in the kind of environments you tend to spend time in (or wish to spend time in) with your dog.

Each week we work through a series of exercises designed to help each individual dog learn to cope with challenging situations.  We also work on training specific skills as an alternative to reactive behaviour.  If appropriate, friendly, neutral dogs help us in class with social skill building.  The humans in class learn about dog body language and appropriate social skill and play behaviour.  Classes are taught on the North Shore and in Coquitlam – evenings and weekends.

Private Consultations: Aggression and Behavioural Issues
Email or call Valerie 604-868-5145

Dogs that are troubled by behavioural concerns have a difficult time living in a world with human rules.  We understand these dogs and we understand the emotions burdening the owners of these dogs.  We can help.  We dedicate a great deal of time to keeping ourselves up to date with recent research and information on dog behaviour.  There are some great positive methods to use to work with dogs suffering from all areas of aggression, and we can develop and help you work through an effective training plan with your dog.
