Sliding Scale Virtual Sessions

(There is no new client intake required before booking a sliding scale virtual session, but please reach out to me and let me know you will be opting for this option instead of a new client intake) 

This is a 50- minute virtual training/support session with sliding scale pricing. Choose your amount based on your income and financial position. I offer these sessions to make training accessible to all. You will not be asked for proof of your income; you choose your price on the honour system!

Paying more than the suggested price, for those who are able, allows me to offer this service to folks who need it and would otherwise be unable to access help, and also helps to support my business goals.

We can work on problem solving challenging behaviours, creating management solutions, or teaching new cues. These sessions are also a great addition to an in-person training package with me, to work on progress tracking, ask additional questions, or for emotional support.

Puppy Start Right Preschool

For puppies aged 7-14 weeks

PLEASE NOTE: Registration is in a rolling enrolment style, meaning you choose your START DATE, and your class will run for 4 consecutive weeks starting on that date. Classes are on Tuesdays at 6:30pm in person, and Thursdays at 6:30 virtually on zoom.


Please read the AVSAB puppy socialization position statement if you're unsure about socializing a puppy who is not fully vaccinated. 

This class is a rare opportunity to check things off your puppy to-do list in one go! It offers an essential foundation of learning, exploring, and socializing for new puppies. And as an added bonus, it takes place in a vet office, which will teach your pup  that the vet is a positive, fun place! Many animals become wary or fearful of veterinary, grooming, and handling practices, so it's vital that they are exposed to these in a positive way before negative associations are made. Puppy guardians will learn to read their puppy's body language, understand their puppy's behaviour, prevent problem behaviours, and teach important skills! 8 puppies maximum.



Each week, in-person class will involve:

  • Puppy play time

  • Guided exploration stations (things like nail trims and vaccine prep, sounds & objects, surfaces, people, costumes & props, etc)

  • Teaching basic cues (leash walking, leave it, drop it, come when called, crate training)

  • Homework, reading, and handouts for the following class

Virtual classes will address:

  • Problem prevention topics (house training, puppy biting and chewing, jumping up, resource guarding prevention, separation anxiety prevention, cooperative husbandry)


  • In depth orientation video

  • 4 x hour-long classes on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm at Elk Lake Veterinary Hospital

  • 4 x 30-minute virtual classes Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm (recordings will be available)

  • Supplementary videos weekly

  • Puppy Start Right Book

  • Clicker

  • Weekly handouts

This is the perfect service for reactive dogs, puppies needing to get out and explore the world, or dogs who are shy souls and don't do well in a pack! This is not your average dog walk; your dog is getting one on one time with a trainer to have their needs met, and practice whatever skills you've been working on with them, in addition to sniff time, play, and enrichment activities.
