Summer 2024

Spots are filling up fast for our Puppy Classes and Obedience Levels Program! Give your dog the positive start they deserve in 2024. To sign up for a spot in one of our classes, click here.

Our OUTDOOR Levels Classes are now back in full swing on Saturdays at 12:30pm, at Riverside Park in Guelph! We focus on leash walking, recall, relaxation, and distraction work outside in real life environments. Proof your dog's current training in the context of the great outdoors. For best results, start in our Beginner Levels Classes first to build a solid foundation in a lower distraction environment first. 

Online Program

DeeDee’s Story 

Some of you may recognize Default (DeeDee) from our demo videos! DeeDee is new to me as of this year (2023), and has been an amazing addition to the JV Training team, and to my family. She is a 4 year old mixed breed girl who had a very rough start to life in what they think was a puppy mill situation. She has clearly been used for breeding (she was rescued along with some of her pups), and was malnourished, nervous, and had clearly been living in filth. Despite all of that, she is the absolute sweetest and most hard working dog I have worked with! Lucky for me this little girl loves to train, and absolutely adores agility. It has been such a pleasure watching her flourish into the happy dog she is now.
