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 (Mar 16 2020)

Due the severity of the COVID-19 virus, E&E Kennels will be postponing the start of our next set of training classes. Your current classes will be finishing on schedule, postponement will only effect classes that have not yet begun. This decision was based on a number of factors but primarily the fact that your safety and the safety of your pets has always been our top priority. We have a considerable number of elderly and immunocompromised clients that use our services at E&E and it is in everyone’s best interest to temporarily close our doors.

 

This decision was not reached lightly and we are hopeful that we will be able to return to our regular schedule soon. If you would like to be notified when classes start up again, please call our office at (780) 963-8173 or you can continue to check our website which will be updated.

By prepaying for five classes, you will receive the sixth one for free. (One punch card per dog, one punch per class.) The free sixth class deal is unavailable for people who don’t buy our punch cards.

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 Beginner Obedience once they have mastered the concepts taught in this class.

 

Supplies you will need include:

  • Harness/collar of your choice
  • 6 ft. leash (no flexi/extendable leads)
  • Small, training-sized treats

COVID-19 Update:

Current Puppy Kindergarten classes will be running as an online course for the foreseeable future as per the note at the top of this page. The class has no size limit in this format and we will accept new students right up until the run date.

Lessons will be released each Monday consisting of a demonstration video by the instructor, a training plan, and supplemental reading materials. Students will have all week to put together video of their training and submit questions (with or without video). The instructor will address all homework for that week by Sunday.

 This class will be accessible primarily through a private Facebook group but can also be completed by email if the student does not have a Facebook account.

Level 1 Obedience Classes

Prerequisites: Minimum age of 6 months old.

This class teaches your dog social manners and helps in correcting any minor behavioural problems. Basic commands such as sit, stay, come, down and stand are covered. All dogs will be given a training collar (included in the cost of the class)—however, we do require you bring your own 6 ft., non-extendable leash. The first class will be owners only, no dogs, as it is an information class that focuses on what the course will cover, some theory and the supplies you will use and need.
