Updated Oct. 20, 2016: Our next dog recall event is Oct. 22 at Auburn Bay Off-Leash Park. Registration for the training is closed but other free resources are available on site. http://bit.ly/YYCOffLeash
A reliable recall, or the “come” command, is by far the most important thing to teach your dog and often the most difficult to train. Every spring and summer, we provide free dog recall training sessions from a certified professional dog trainer to help you and your dog.
There are a limited number of spots so we recommend registering early for this free opportunity. Registration for the event opens on Tuesday, May 24.
Whether in an on- or off-leash area, your dog needs to be under your control at all times. As a result of working together during the session and your practice outside of class, you and your dog will become more of a team in off-leash areas.
Training helps to improve the human/animal bond, it enforces positive interactions at dog parks, and helps owners by giving them the techniques they need to minimize undesirable dog behaviours and encourage appropriate behaviour.
The dog recall events also include: free nail trimming, dog behaviour coaching and pet first aid. Pet owners will also be able to renew their animal licence(s).
Off-Leash Ambassador Program
This event is being offered as part of our Off-Leash Ambassador program, a volunteer-led approach to help promote and educate people about responsible pet ownership.
