"Having Charlie do a class with The Dog Classroom was great, even when we had to stop in person classes [due to COVID19] they immediately jumped to online which was so great. The classes made me connect more to my dog, I can't wait to start agility with him and make our bond even closer! Thank you to Amelia, the amount of questions she answered for me was above and beyond!" - Rebecca D.

"Took my pup through both the Beginning with Basics and The Next Step. Both trainers in each class were extremely helpful with both general training and specific guidance with various struggles we were having. As first time dog owners we were full of questions of how to manage different behaviours and they took all our questions (even the silly ones) seriously and offered great advice. They were even able to recommend a good quality harness to help walk a very large pup, which made training a whole lot easier. They use a positive approach in training and we have had excellent results with our dog. Looking forward to bringing our newest rescue puppy to classes, looking forward even more to the great results we know we will receive." - Kayla B.
"Love this place. Anne-Marie and her trainers have done wonders for my dog. I feel at home and all my issues are addressed. The suggestions given are tailored to the needs of my dog. Highly recommend this training facility." - Heather M.
"I had no idea what to do. My two dogs and I recently moved to Thunder Bay from a large rural property where they were never on leash. They did not adjust well to walking on a leash or seeing other dogs. After a particularly scary experience, I realized we needed help. Anne-Marie provided a one-on-one consultation for the three of us. Using the practical skills and knowledge she taught us, I was able to work with my dogs and saw real improvement in a short time. We then joined the Reactive Dog Class. It was fun and very educational. I am now confident to walk my dogs in any situation. I know exactly how to handle it, even if that means turning around and walking away. Surprisingly, my relationship with my dogs is much better as well." - Rhonda H.
"Anne-Marie and Mike have been so accommodating to my rescue dogs various issues, they've truly gone above and beyond to specifically help her and the improvements have been clear. Thank you guys so much!" - Chantal P.
"Anne-Marie and her team of trainers are the best by-far!! The courses are well structured, informative, friendly and all of the training methods are very successful.

"After having a private session with Anne-Marie, with a very fearful foster dog buddy, I am very pleased to say that his training is going well. we are taking it slow and easy, but have immense faith that with the techniques taught, time and patience, buddy will succeed and be much happier. thank you so much for all your help." - Darlene V.
"We just attended our first class/consultation for our pup Samson at The Dog Classroom this evening. Had a great time and so did Samson :) Very thankful for all the wonderful suggestions and excited to get started with training. Most of all we appreciate Anne-Marie's patient explanations of "why" we are using specific techniques. We've already implemented one of the recommendations since we arrived home!" - Kyla M.
