Is your noisy dog driving you barking mad? Does your dog’s excessive digging have you reaching for the number of your local concreter? We can help!

About this Course:

Work with our skilled Educators to develop or learn new skills for dealing with your happy chatter, boredom barker or dutiful digger. You’ll explore the different reasons why your dog might be barking or digging up your backyard, and what you can do to stop this unwanted behaviour. With the help of our education dogs, our Educators will demonstrate various training techniques and equipment and share environmental modification tips and enrichment hacks that’ll help transform your mischievous pooch into the pawfect pet! One thing’s for sure, you’ll be able to enjoy some quiet time (how’s the serenity!) – and you might even spend it in your hole-free, concrete-free garden!
