Training
and Lifestyle Classes

 

Four on the Floor offers specialized training for your dog, including therapy and private consultations, depending on your dog's needs.

All of our lifestyle courses will help you form not only an incredible bond but an unbreakable bond. We believe by creating a relationship similar to a human family social unit, your dog will learn to look for guidance and direction by members of the family. We will educate you in order for the family to teach your best friend their social structure, rules, limitations, and boundaries.

The fee for all classes includes a slip lead that has multiple funcitons. Contact us for an up-to-date price list.

When possible, due to demand, we try to break our classes into your k-9’s age groups making it less frustrating and more rewarding. It is also nice for you to see and be able to work alongside of others facing the same situations and watching the progress of each other’s accomplishments.

Rhonda, the senior trainer, has a long list of credentials, which truly sets her apart from many other trainers.

Cesar who? Rhonda doesn’t need to whisper… the dog’s love to hear from her!

Angel and Family

Testimonial"Quincy, my Boston Terrier, was a frightened little dog with aggression issues. I took an obedience class with Rhonda and Quincy became a totally different dog within weeks thanks to the tools that she taught me.

I took it a step further for socializing and put Quincy into the doggie daycare. I was very apprehensive but he did amazing thanks to the assistance of Rhonda, Tamara and all the staff. I could not have asked or wanted for more out of the situation. "

In-house Training Program
(30 day mandatory - 5 days a week)

This program is geared towards people that do not have the time, patience, or who are just fed up with their K-9's unwanted behaviour due to hyperactivity, adolescence, new puppy toilet training, reactive dogs, obsessive compulsive dogs, or for those who want to have a well mannered socialized good canine citizen that you can take anywhere anytime.

This specialized program consists of 30 days of daycare with one-on-one fun filled, positive interval training sessions throughout the day with one of our qualified trainers. Our Behaviour Modification Specialist will tailor a program suitable to both your's and your k-9's needs.

A workbook will be kept and a log of your k-9's daily and weekly progress will be kept for a weekly review with you. It will be expected that you will follow through when the pet is at home during the program, so that consistency will be met and the best possible results will be achieved. Our staff will ensure that all exercises are understood and executed correctly by you at the weekly review.

You will have access to any training equipment or training video for rental (Visa, Mastercard, or Cash Deposit will be obtained which will be refunded upon return and no damage).

This course will include the basics such as sit, stay, come, down, and stop using body language and body movements that genetically your canine understands. We will educate you on how your canine views their world and their new family structure. Leash handling and distraction techniques are taught, along with a whole lot more so that your dog can become a polite canine citizen.
