Are you a dog owner in the Burlington, Ontario area? Are you looking for dog socialization classes for your furry friend? At Scholars in Collars, we offer dog socialization classes that are top-tier and based on the most current, scientifically proven methods. Curious to learn more about the services we offer and how they can benefit your puppy? Read on.

Dog Socialization Classes: A Solid Foundation for Your Puppy

Our in-person dog socialization classes in Burlington enables local dog owners the unique opportunity to connect directly with our professional trainers in their local neighbourhood. When you choose our in-person dog socialization classes, you’ll receive hands-on instruction specifically developed for you and your new puppy.

Our talented trainers will work closely with you to address the issues you wish to fix. Your puppy will also benefit from socializing with other puppies, learning through play. As an owner, you will learn how to read your dog’s social signals, how and when to intervene, and how to properly structure play sessions. Our in-person dog socialization classes are a supportive and interactive environment where everyone is welcome.

Our dog socialization classes:

  • Offered to Level 1 in-person registered puppies 9-18 weeks old
  • Weekly registration available 2-4 times a month
  • Puppy socialization/play sessions in highly customized safe groupings based on current size, age and playstyle
  • As in traditional puppy courses, puppies are not stuck with just the dogs in their obedience class who may not be the right match for contact. This prevents fear or bullying experiences. Puppy play groups are customized week to week for the most ideal matches for the behavioural, emotional and physical safety of your puppy.
  • Puppies get more varied exposure to more dogs and people
  • Owners learn how to read social signals, how/when to intervene and also structure play sessions properly. Learn how just using any dog and simply releasing the hounds and allowing contact/play every time lead to issues ( fear, over-excitement and reactivity)
  • Balanced socialization: at level 1 obedience, dogs learn/rehearse how to not only be comfortable, but also calm and relaxed around dogs and people. At playtime class they learn how to listen before contact with the “right” dogs. Otherwise, play at every class is like a child getting a toy EVERY time they go to the mall.
  • No need for a puppy pre-course (kindergarten/head start) before doing a real level 1 course. With doing separate playtimes, our pups are in a real Level 1 course right away. Saving both time and money in training and getting a complete foundation sooner.

We proudly serve the Burlington community, offering the best dog and puppy training in the area and providing a positive impact for both dogs and their owners.

Customized Dog Training Classes

As anyone who has ever owned a dog before will tell you, every one of them is unique with their own sets of needs, behaviours and personalities. And with a puppy, it is very important to instill good behaviour as soon as you can. With our customized dog training in Burlington, we offer tailored plans to align with your dog’s specific needs.

Our customized plans address a wide range of issues—from basic obedience training to more complicated behavioural issues. We will work with you and your new puppy to develop a plan that’s aligned with your goals and your pup’s individual needs.

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, which sets us apart from other businesses offering dog training in Burlington. When you choose Scholars in Collars, you are ensuring that you and your puppy receive the most effective, comprehensive and enjoyable training experience possible.
