Street Wise Canine is one of the most trusted professional dog training companies in the city of Ottawa. We come highly recommended by our clients, veterinarians, boarding facilities and other professionals in the industry. Our years of experience, qualifications and certifications will help give you a clear behaviour management plan you can easily execute and trust. Our goal is to help you maintain a safe, respectful and mindful relationship with your dog. We specialize in working with reactive and aggressive behaviours. This includes the following: leash reactivity, dog aggression, human aggression, resource guarding and overall dangerous behaviours. 
 

INITIAL CONSULTATION  
Your Location - $189.99 

The initial consultation allows us to gather a full history of the dogs behaviour as well as the dynamics in the home. We will assess how your dog interacts with his environment, with his family and evaluate where the behaviour issues are stemming from. 

Once we have conducted our assessment, we are able to give our recommendations and give you the tools you need to implement a successful behaviour modification plan. All members of the family are required to be present during the consultation. 

PRIVATE LESSONS
Your Location - $134.99 

Private lessons are intended for clients who need ongoing support after the initial consultation. They are simply booked on an hourly basis at you location and  at your convenience.  During the hourly lesson we will  not only continue to support your behaviour modification program, we will also demonstrate hands on how to work through the current issues.

Have a Question ? Here's an Answer 

WHAT BREED OF DOGS DO YOU TRAIN?

We do not discriminate against certain breeds, big or small we train them all! 

 

WHAT'S THE MOST COMMON TRAINING MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE?

People think they’re only training during planned training sessions when in reality, animals are continually being rewarded for good and bad behaviours all day. As a result of the lack of awareness owners often spend more time accidentally rewarding the undesirable behaviours than rewarding the desirable ones.

 

DO YOU ONLY USE POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT?

 

No. While it’s essential that we focus on reinforcing good behaviours, it’s equally important to remove rewards for undesirable behaviour. If both are not done equally, then the animal will continue to be confused as to which behaviour you want and a good habit will never be formed. We use corrections to motivate your dog not to continue bad behaviours, just like we reward a dog to motivate him to continue good behaviour. 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO TRAIN MY DOG?

That depends on how much time and effort you are willing to invest. You would be surprised at how quickly your dog can learn new behaviours. Once training with SWC is complete,  it is just the beginning of your dog’s life-long learning. 

WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

 

We accept interact money transfers and cash. 

DO YOU GUARANTEE YOUR TRAINING? 

No.  Be wary of trainers who guarantee dog training results.   Behaviour is fluid and ever changing, and your dog is not a furry computer that can be reprogrammed.  The success of any dog training program depends on many factors, many of which can’t be ethically placed under a guarantee. 

 

WILL I BE CHARGED IF OUR LESSON RUNS LONG?

 

No. However we prefer all of our lesson not exceed one hour. This is mainly to benefit you and your dog, learning isn't really fun once you've been bombarded with a lot of information.
