Hi everyone,
since the puppies are slowly leaving for their new homes :( I recommend to every future "parent" to go through formal training with the puppy not only to teach the puppy how to behave but also to teach the new parents how to give commands and behave... :)

If you know of any great trainers or obedience / training dog schools, please post it here, so it can be an additional guide to good or bad trainers and be of more help to someone searching for a qualified help.

For Toronto, Ontario - CANADA area, Bonni has heard good reviews about Puppy People http://www.puppypeople.com/. Our vet has also given us a brochure about some trainers which I still have to review and then will post my findings.

This obedience training information should not be limited to puppies only, rather all age and obedience categories would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I am currently enrolled at the Sportsmen's Dog Training Club of Detroit (which is located in Ferndale, MI). They have everything from puppy training to competitive obedience to agility. I'm happy with what I've seen so far. Here is the link. www.sportsmens.net

I never have gone to a "Puppy Kindergarten". When I had puppies, I hadn't heard about it. I would have liked to have gone. All my dogs have gone to some sort of Obedience School when they were a bit older.

The place we have used for training is Superdog Central in Bowmanville, ON. http://www.superdogcentral.com/. The training program is run by professional trainers and a behaviourist. I have taken Flyball classes and traditional training classes there and am impressed with the place.

Another training facility in the GTA is Who's Walking Who in Ajax, ON (I believe they also have a Toronto branch) and they are highly thought of as well.

I must have been tired when I wrote this and/or very busy.
They do have "Puppy Kindergarten", Basic Obedience, Advanced Basic Obedience, Intermediate Obedience and an "Off leash" class too.

I go to St. Huberts also with both my dogs. I'm not sure Pia Silvani teaches any classes, at least I've never had a class with her, she is the Director of Training and Behavior. Is she a friend of yours? St. Huberts does have some excellent trainers. I am surprised at how far people come from all over northern NJ for classes there. And that you have heard of it all the way out in California.
