Pooch Partners offers a variety of activities year round that are sure to keep you and your pooch active, healthy and happy! Whether you are looking to get involved in our outdoor fitness classes, are interested in dog sports or need obedience training for your dog, we can help you!

Useful Information

Harness your dog's power safely

Dog powered sports are exhilarating activities that requires a strong relationship between you and your dog, as well as an adequate fitness level, training and proper equipment. Our canicross training provides the skills needed to transition to other faster paced sports such as bikejoring, skijoring and kicksledding and also helps to build your’s and your dog’s fitness level. We do not recommend doing these sports without adequate training and proper equipment as it increases the risk to not just you and your dog but to others you may encounter during your activities.

Critical life skills

Having a well behaved dog takes work and lots of practice. It requires more than just attending five training sessions – it is a lifetime commitment. Pooch Partners believes that a loose leash walk and a reliable recall are critical to having a happier lifelong relationship with your dog so in addition to our life skills and positive puppy classes we have also developed virtual training sessions on specific concepts to help with recalls, loose lead walking, and more.

Happy dog = happy you!  We can help make it happen!
