Welcome To Canine Minds And Manners

Welcome to Canine Minds and Manners Calgary Dog Training — professional dog and puppy training in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with a Certified Behaviour Consultant and Dog Trainer.

We believe in thinking differently about how we live with our companion animals, in challenging the traditional ways of looking at life with your dog. We believe that a well mannered dog that you can happily live with is not a dream but a reality.

The way we do this is by reinforcing great canine behaviours and providing people and dogs with the skills to confidently manage any situation in the real world, because that’s where we all live.

And we also happen to have regularly running innovative, fun dog training classes with two Certified Professional Dog Trainers and Behaviour Consultants where you and your dog can learn and practice these skills in a supportive, safe environment.
