Professional Dog Training Classes in Stony Plain

Training your dogs not only makes them easier to manage but strengthens your bond and gives you a way to clearly communicate with them. At E&E Kennels, we provide a number of dog training classes, from basic obedience training and competitive agility training to puppy kindergarten and rally obedience. Our courses are designed for dogs of different ages and abilities; our professional trainers have years of experience and are dedicated to making training enjoyable for both dogs and humans.

 

COVID-19 Update (September 18, 2021)

We are participating in the Restriction Exemption Program as of Monday September 20th so that we can continue to run classes.

 

What this means for E&E going forward, we will require proof of vaccines from anyone in our training classes, including our trainers. We will accept partial vaccination up until October 25th, however after that date we will require full vaccination. We will not be accepting negative tests as tests would have to be completed on a weekly basis. If you are not vaccinated you will not be able to participate in classes, however we will offer a partial credit to use for students currently enrolled in classes or a full refund for classes that have not yet started.

 

We understand that this can be very frustrating and we truly appreciated everyone's patience and understanding. As a small business we are doing the best we can to support our community and our clients while following government guidelines. We ask that everyone please bring proof of vaccinations to your first class, or send an emailed copy in advance; copies will be kept on file in the office for the duration of class. If you are exempt from getting a vaccine due to a prior health condition, we will accept a doctor's note.

Puppy Kindergarten Classes

Prerequisites: Maximum age of 5 months old, at least the first two sets of puppy vaccines.

The Puppy K class is intended to help puppies socialize during their most formative weeks; this class helps you build a bond with your puppy while giving you the skills to raise a well-behaved, well-cared-for dog. It is a fun class of constructive, experience-oriented activities that will introduce owners to the basics of puppy care, training, and handling. The class focuses on socializing your pup with other dogs and people in a productive, structured way as well as exposing them to novel sights and sounds. Canine social skills and owner knowledge of body language and appropriate play is developed through short, supervised off-leash play sessions at the end of each class. 

We recommended owners continue with Level 1 Obedience once they have mastered the concepts taught in this class.
