Why Choose Us?

Pooch  Partners

Pooch Partners has always used positive training methods and we love games-based concept training! How does concept training work? It is really quite simple and a whole lot of fun. Using games and positive reinforcement we teach our dog concepts such as confidence, calmness, disengagement, focus and impulse control, which empowers them to respond appropriately to real life situations. Many of the games also provide your dog with fitness benefits too which is another bonus. Whether you are starting fresh with a new puppy or have a dog with some behaviour issues, concept training can turn any struggle you may be experiencing with your dog into a success!

We are also proud to continue to advance our skill set with new dog training methods including but not limited to family dog mediation and predation substitute training, which encourage guardians to understand their dogs as individuals, identify their innate instinctual needs and provide safe activities that allow them to be the dogs that they are meant to be.

Concept Training

Games, games and more games! We play games that teach our dogs the essential concepts like calmness, confidence, tolerance to frustration and impulse controlto enable them to make good decisions and live a happy life



Along with our years of experience, we believe in lifetime learning and it shows in our credentials which includes multiple dog training and specialty certifications



Pooch Partners was started to help reduce dog obesity and we continue on that mission through our various physical fitness activities for you and your dog.

Pooch Partners believes in giving back and to date has helped raise and donate over $15000 to various charities. You can help by participating in our annual Doggie Duathlon the second Sunday in August which is a fundraising event with all proceeds donated to charity.
