(we're all wonderfully different and your family
may not look exactly like the one above...)

We are experts at assessing where you and your canine companion are at - and then figuring out how to get you to where you want to be. 

There's a lot of dog training advice out there - our experienced trainers find the safest and dog-friendliest options that work and customize them for you.  

We help puppies learn life skills and offer help problem behaviour like barking, pulling on leash, house training, biting, chewing and digging in both training classes and one-on-one consultations.


How We Train

We use humane methods and the latest research to deliver results that solve problems -- and build lasting friendships between humans and safe, happy and well-behaved dogs. 

Our specialty is working with owners to create great partnerships - ensuring your dog is a beloved and well-behaved member of your family.  And we support great relationships between people, dogs and dog professionals.

We offer what we think are world class puppy training and life skills, family dog and dog life skills and behaviour programs at our training facility.  We offer double gating for safety and our classes are both entertaining and well-organized.  

When you put this together with our caring, knowledgeable staff (who are always learning about the latest in dog training and human learning styles to make your experience the best possible) we think you'll find the best dog training school in Guelph and the surrounding area.

 OUR CLIENTS SAY:
(each month, we feature a few words from a client who has given us permission to quote them and act as reference for you to contact)

The puppy nipping is no longer a problem and the housetraining tips mean we have a happy puppy AND a dry floor. "

Acknowledging Guelph’s History

Dog Friendship Inc. is a Canadian company doing business on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron/Attawandaronk/Neutral Peoples. The colonial processes of early immigrants (Dutch, English and French) through which Dog Friendship’s owners came to live on this land - and so choose Guelph in which to operate the business - were deeply unjust to these Peoples. Colonialism continues to cause great harm to their descendants and harms everyone who has been taught racism as a way of life. Because of this teaching, in injustice remains present today in individuals, institutions and throughout much of Canadian society. Dog Friendship Inc. endeavors to be accountable to this reality in ways that go beyond apology or a website mention. We consider ourselves allies of the descendants who lived on this land, and those who have been affected by racism. For example, we speak out against voices that say that the solution for Ontario dogs kept on reserve must be “rescue” and we offer our support to approaches that increase the welfare of animals on reserve. We promise to work for justice and equity through all aspects of our business. We promise to work toward honouring the ancestors who inhabited this land and honouring the land itself. This includes a commitment to seeking out products that will not harm our environment.  As we seek to accomplish these things, we welcome your feedback and critique on our efforts and your suggestions for meaningful change.
