Working Dogs

Toronto K9 Center understands the differences between a purpose made working dog and a household pet. Working dogs are bred for their extreme drives in tracking, protection/guarding, herding, and other applications. Often such dogs are brought into the home/family environment and are expected to function as merely lovable companions. These dogs having retained their energy for work are often too much for the average pet owner to manage without the necessary knowledge and experience. High drive needs to be channeled and directed through exercise, and the incorporation of discipline. At Toronto K9 Center we provide dog owners with the tools to bring their dogs under control using proper communication, contact, reinforcement, and engagement.

Puppy Training

Early training is recommended. This will establish boundaries and limits, shape many behaviors that could otherwise become a problem at a later age, and create a mutual relationship for you and your pup to enjoy for a lifetime.

Adult Dog Training

Training an older dog requires a different methodology. It sometimes requires teaching a dog with an attitude, the discipline and self control that was previously never asked or expected of it. This approach requires a change in the owner’s approach to dog psychology, and an introduction to a more balanced lifestyle.
