SERVICES

WCCA has a variety of services to choose from to best suit the needs of you and your dog. Training can begin as early as 8 weeks and can continue throughout your dog's life. You know the saying, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks."? Well, that is not true!  Dogs love to be challenged, and we will keep you and your dog motivated and engaged through interesting, fun and challenging games and activities, regardless of the format you choose. 

Group classes are a wonderful opportunity to train your dog in a safe environment with other dogs and distractions. Engaging with your dog during class is a great way to establish confidence and manners while building your relationship. We strive to keep our class sizes small so that you can experience high-quality instruction.​ All classes will be held at Barkadia 109 Gateway Dr NE #2113 in Airdrie, AB. 

 

PLEASE NOTE: Masks are mandatory in Airdrie so please come prepared to wear a mask during class. Due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Private lessons are a great option if you want more focused and individualized content. These lessons are particularly effective for owners who are experiencing a behavioral concern with their dog or can not commit to a class. Private lessons are conducted at the handler's location, or Barkadia. Please call with any questions or to book a private lesson. Private lesson packages are non-refundable and must be used up within 30 days unless discussed otherwise. Travel cost may apply when outside of Calgary limits.
