Group Training

We offer group obedience training for dogs of all ages.

Our classes are small, positive reinforcement, motivation-and rewards-based training, focused on solving real-life dog training challenges.

Our instructors are skilled, experienced, kind and want to help you and your dog learn to communicate well and get reliable results.

Our classes are held at various Bosley’s locations across the Greater Victoria area. Each class is one hour per week for four weeks. This is a great opportunity for your canine companion to learn the basic commands with minor distractions and provides some extra socialization.

Are you struggling to walk down the street with your dog due to their barking, growling, and/or lunging on leash? Is their behaviour interfering with your quality of life, and theirs?

  • We will use a holistic approach that addresses lifestyle, stress, exercise, socialization, and training, to create a calmer and more confident dog.
  • You will gain a deeper understanding of reactivity, stress, over-arousal, body language, and various management techniques.
  • We will set up situations that allow your dog to learn relaxation and emotional regulation, to create positive new habits.
  • You will receive a comprehensive booklet to follow as we go through the course, weekly homework assignments, in-class demonstrations, and opportunities to rehearse your dog’s skills. 
  • You will also receive access to our behaviour modification Facebook group.

If your dog is extremely fearful and shut down or has a bite history, our Private Behaviour Modification program will most likely be a better fit.

However, if you’re not sure whether this program is right for you and your dog, please contact us to set up a 30-minute consultation before registering.
