The Rescue Dog Training

Building confidence with gentle first steps

Call to Register

Rescue dogs are complex. They come with a variety of behaviours that both delight and challenge their new person as they begin a journey together. The stimulating environment found in a group class can easily overwhelm some rescue dogs when the goal is to help them feel safe in their emerging world.

Often the best first steps to take are through a private setting.

Our Rising Stars course will give you the best start possible with your new dog through a three-lesson curriculum that respects the learning and socialization challenges unique to a newly rehomed dog.

We start with a zoom consultation where you get to ask all your questions and voice your concerns – if there are any! In this session you will receive foundation exercises and guidance on the first steps toward building trust and confidence.

We then transfer the learning to two private lessons held in your home/neighborhood that address the hurdles your new dog needs to overcome.

Rising Stars covers the use of markers in training, shaping exercises as a confidence builder, an introduction to reinforcement strategies, leash skills, and the use of management in daily life. Because each dog is different, we adjust the exercises to the both of you, allowing your newly adopted star to shine bright!
