Calm & Confident Adult Dog Program

For puppies 17 weeks & older, adolescent and adult dogs, the program covers:

Confidence & Optimism around people and dogs: Giving them tools to cope with, and overcome their fears, while building confidence & optimism.

Basic Manners: Leave it, drop it, come (in the house, backyard and neighborhood walks).

Self Control: Walk on a loose-leash, greet people politely, wait at the door until asked to step out, wait in the car until asked to hop-out and more.

Settle Calmly: While I make or eat dinner at home, reply to work emails or participate in a work meeting.

Body Handling & Grooming: Teaching your dog what ears, paw, side, chin, muzzle mean. Co-operate during a veterinary exam or a grooming appointment.

This program is for shy, fearful & nervous dogs who need confidence building and also for over excited dogs who need calmness.

What Our Clients Say

“I took several classes with D For Dog and loved all of them. I really enjoyed that many of the classes were held in different locations around town so your pup gets to practice the skills in the real world.”

“The one thing that sets Kaajal apart from other trainers is that she uses Positive reinforcement methods and is remarkably good at training humans in how they connect with their puppy as that sets the right foundation.”
