Here’s a story about a dog who tried real hard to bite me multiple times anywhere he could:
When the dog finally stopped I praised the dog and said “Thank you, I really appreciate that.” His future Pet Parents were standing there and asked, “Why did you thank the dog for trying to bite you ?” I said, “I was thanking him for stopping trying to bite me.”
I could have got mad and blamed the dog who was trying diligently to bite me. Instead, I watched my thoughts because they become your attitude and chose a positive, progressive viewpoint the dog could read.
It’s really easy to find things to complain about. The thoughts and attitudes we have impact much more than we realize with our dogs and make for a more enjoyable day or life, or a miserable day or life. What lies before us or lies behind us are small matters as to what lies within us. Help rather than hinder your dog.
I enjoy sharing many years of dog training experience and knowledge.
To satisfy the demand for daytime dog obedience training classes we have a new class on Thursdays at 10am-11am. This is a dog training (and Pet Parent training) class at the Adult Beginner level, 6 months and older. Classes are held at our facility at the border of Surrey and Langley, in the neighbourhood of Port Kells (north of Clayton). Classes are held outside in good weather or inside when raining heavily.
Six weeks, $180, pre-registration is required.
After daycare at DCT, Kai was tired. This is a picture of him at home after a day of daycare. His Pet Parent said, “you got him tired – he never wants to cuddle!”

We’ve been having beautiful weather, perfect for being outside. This is a picture from one of our Advanced Adult Dog training classes at DCT earlier in April. If you would like to join our next class, either contact us or register.
This is the perfect time to train your dog or puppy. Whether you are training a new dog for the first time, or wanting to take your dog’s training to the next level, there is a class that is perfect for you and your pet companion. Check out the training schedule to see what time will work for you.
Some changes to our schedule:
Saturdays 9:00am is Intermediate Dog Training
Sundays 9:00am is Advanced Dog Training
Wednesday 6:30pm is Rescue Club
We have an indoor training building for all training classes now available. Located in Langley near 200th and 80th.
Surprise is here! Born September 14th @10:23pm
As of September, please drop off your dog for doggie daycare no later than 8am on Tuesdays only. I have changed the time of my Tuesday training group. All other days please drop off before 9am and pickup between 4pm and 5pm.
Exciting News: My Percheron mare is going to foal any day. When baby comes I’ll need to have a week of no training classes, to be with her and foal. It may be short notice – I’ll contact everyone as soon as I can. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
