FOR DOGS & THEIR FAMILIES
Private sessions or classes are for you and your dog, regardless of age or breed.
With a questionnaire and an analysis of the behaviors of your dog, Sir Doggie will tailor a training plan to your needs for your specific dog.
Dogs are going through different stages of life. From puppy to end of life, we must understand and respect them with compassion and unique consideration.
We are their parents, they need an education.
Puppies are always pleased to be trained: all of these dogs are 4 months old
and well focused.
Multiple pets and dogs
are as well, trainable.
PUPPIES in PRE-K
-from 7 to 12 weeks-
PUPPIES in ELEMENTARY
-from 3 to 6 months-
You can start as soon as your puppy is settle at home, before the vaccinations end.
Obedience, basic manners, proper socialization and exposure are essentials. This includes: sit, down, come, wait, stay, leave it, give it, loose leash walking, potty training as well as being confident with other dogs, people, and in different environments.
Challenges and unwanted behaviors like jumping, chewing, nipping, barking or counter surfing should be addressed. Sir Doggie will teach you how to communicate with your puppy and the ability to practice your new skills, enjoying a nice daily life.
TEENAGERS in MIDDLE SCHOOL
-from 6 to 12 months-
YOUNG and ADULT DOGS in HIGH SCHOOL
Even with good foundations, teens are challenging!
Hormones are overwhelming their brain, sexually maturity make the world very different; and you are not anymore your puppy's center of the universe (sorry!).
Pulling crazy on leash, barking, counter surfing, reactivity to dogs, people, and sounds can be so annoying and frustrating. Consolidating training foundations and continuing socialization and exposure are critical to have a dog who can adapt and grow well.
Adults dogs might need reinforcement (and maybe you too) or some behaviors problems can happen slowly or suddenly.
Sir Doggie helps to improve your skills and gives you strategies to solve these problems.
UNWANTED BEHAVIORS? PROBLEMS?
Your dog is "only" barking? You want better walks with no zigzag or pulling?
Sir Doggie can address most behavior issues at any age: isolation and separation anxiety , destroying, aggression, resource guarding, reactivity to anything, barking, loose leash walking, crate training, house training...
1 hour might be enough to fix unwanted behaviors
If I see that I can't help you and your dog, I will refer you to an expert, a dog trainer who is specialized in this specific issue or a behaviorist. Sometimes our dogs are traumatized and training is not enough. A diagnosis is necessary and maybe medication can help.
FAMILY and CHILDREN with their PET
Having a new dog? Getting your child responsible with your pet?
Need of after school activity for your kids or teens?
Sir Doggie can teach your children how to act safely outside with your dog and at home with friends, teach them fun tricks and games, and even basic agility with props we find at home.
ARE YOU AFRAID OF DOGS?
Within a few sessions, you can have a normal life around dogs. They don’t have to be your best friends but you can manage your fear or anxiety and have strategies when meeting them.
MULTIPLE PETS, ACCLIMATING TO A BIG CHANGE, MOVING TO
A NEW LOCATION?
Do your PETS have a bad relationship?
Are you welcoming a NEW BABY or PET and wanted to make sure your dog will interact well?
TRAVELING or MOVING? I have done this many times and support your dog to adjust to a new home and neighborhood. I can save you time you with legal requirements necessary for travel nationally or overseas.
DECIDING ON A NEW DOG - FREE
Choosing your dog is a big decision and is not easy. It's a lifetime change!
We need to determine the best temperament and breed for you and your family, depending on your life style and environment.
In addition, we will prepare to welcome at home a new family member.
SELECTING FOOD AND PROPS - FREE
Food interacts on a good health and genetic breed conditions. To avoid allergies, and minimize breed diseases, food, supplements, and exercise support your dog.
Props such as leashes, collars and harnesses can make your day much easier; does your dog pulls on lead? Have you tried the gentle leader or a specific harness? It's not going to be magical but can for sure helps you.

"We recently wrapped a "teen puppy" 6-week dog training course with Gaelle, based in our neighborhood and a few people have asked how it went, so I thought I'd share here. Gaelle is terrific - my dog and I both loved working with her! Her positive based approach works, and she gives instructions and tips that made it easy for us to reinforce the training at home. I recommended her highly. 5 stars!"
