Is Your Dog's Training Distraction Proof?

Marlo staying on his place despite an other dog’s efforts to get him to run and play. Can your dog focus under distraction?

Teaching a dog to work even when distracted is a huge part of my training programs.

If you aren’t training your dog to focus on you and be reliable under distraction – your dog is not going to be able to listen to you when you need it most.


Fully off leash trained

Here we see a young puppy – Marlo – who is an  11 month old Husky showing how well he functions under distraction – by staying on his place while another dog does her best to get him to come and play with her.  This is Marlo’s 5th lesson and he is doing great. His owner Elie is very pleased as you can see by the grin on his face as looks on his dog with pride.  The gentleman in the ball cap with the female asked if they can approach us and of course we obliged since it was a great test for Marlo.





A well trained dog is a thing of beauty

There is a lady walking her 2 small dogs  by in the background as well who has stopped to admire Marlo and was even taking pictures of him.  Marlo’s owner tells me he regularly has people stop and ask about his dog and comment on how well behaved he is.

Can you trust your dog off leash in Downtown Montreal?

Here is a video clip from Shabnam showing off her dog;s training.
Vito - a Cane corso who is 5 months old in this clip is heeling off leash with his owner. Clearly Vito is under controla dn focused on his owner despite all the distractions around them.
I trained Vito for his family this past summer and I love to see my work being put to good use.


Jasper - a true virtuoso!

Please help me with my dog! 2 weeks to a fully trained dog.

Here is Jasper working on a hot and humid summer day. The dogs are out - the distractions are there and Jasper handles all of this along with the heat and humidity with ease - he has come a very long way in 2 short weeks - he is fully on and off leash trained and capable of being obedient in a wide variety of situations.
