Modern, quality training,the kind you and your best friend deserve!
Dogs - as with all animals - learn in the same way, regardless of size, age, or breed. They depend on consequences, associations, and above all, motivation! At Ivy League Dog Training, we are committed to using force-free, science-based training methods to help you achieve the results you want! Not only do dogs thrive when we train without fear or pain, but it's also a lot of fun!

Our services include step by step training plans, personalized homework and exercises, and most importantly: unlimited support throughout the process.

day training

Leave all the training to us! With today's busy, fast-paced lifestyle, day training is a great option. This form of training allows us to do a few sessions a week in your home while you're away at work, busy or just dealing with everyday life. That way, you can have a well-behaved dog, without having to put as much time or work into it.

Polite Puppy

Puppy classes may very well be the most important thing you can do for your puppy! We offer group classes that are filled with socialization, basic manners training and above all their lots of fun for everyone!
We also offer private classes, and a mix of the two!



This set of classes will teach your dog basic obedience, as well as impulse control through the use
of positive reinforcement and clicker training. We will also be working on the three D's of dog training: distraction, distance and duration

Dog Training: An Unregulated Industry

Unfortunately, dog training is not regulated in any way, shape or form. That means, anyone can

claim to be a dog trainer, regardless of their methods, education or lack thereof.

Choosing the right dog trainer may very well be one of the most important decisions you make for your dog. Be wary of those selling snake oil; quick fixes and guaranteed changes are red flags, changing behaviour is not black and white. The use of fear, intimidation and outdated

methods can be both counter-productive and detrimental.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, transparency is key! Ask for references, ask about the

process, ask what methods that will be used.
