For puppies age 10 - 20 weeks*

Rather than teaching “obedience” we've adopted a European style of puppy class that will focus on the whole dog:

  • Growth stages of a dog
  • Appropriate exercise/activity
  • Canine communication
  • Teaching good habits by setting boundaries
  • Understanding stress
  • Nutrition and health
  • Social skills

This is six weeks of learning that'll teach you to see dogs in a whole new way. Our goal is to help you raise a confident dog who's physically and mentally healthy, with great coping skills.

When we look at puppies there are many components to consider—skeleton, muscles, brain, emotions, senses, heritage. It’s important to understand each of them in order to help puppies grow and develop into happy, confident dogs.

Sessions are indoors but distanced, all participants will wear masks. Maximum 4 dogs and 4 humans per class.

Praise for Our Puppy Services

My partner and I adopted a four month old puppy named Benny who's life before us was less than ideal. After the first couple of shy days we quickly saw we had what was seemingly a "difficult" dog on our hands. While we had no intention of giving up on him, we felt unprepared and at a loss at managing such a highly anxious puppy. We connected with Helen at Wholesome Canine and all of that changed. She patiently worked to help us better understand Benny's behaviour and why it was showing up the way it did. She got us through what felt like a hopeless situation. We have seen such a turn around not only with Benny but in ourselves. Helen makes herself available when we have a question, need to upgrade our skills or simply need some reassurance we are doing our very best. We are very grateful for Helen. She has allowed us to develop a sweet, loving and fun relationship with our Benny Boy.
