INTEGRATED K9 SERVICES

 

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT

We have been in touch with our two Petvalu locations and have received permission to start group classes the week of September 7th with certain restrictions.  Group obedience classes will be limited to 2 or 3 dogs with one owner per dog and the classes will be reduced from 60 to 45 minutes in length for the 6 lessons.  Owners will also be required to wear masks and practice social distancing while in the stores.  Classes at the Petvalu at 1550 Upper James St. and Rymal Rd. West will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings at the Petvalu at 1080 Wilson St. West near Shaver Rd. in Ancaster.  An in-home assessment is required before registering for our classes.  If you or anyone you know is interested in one of these classes, check out our Current Classes and Events page or email Wendy Maeots at wendy.maeots@gmail.com. Take care and stay safe.

At Integrated K9 Services it is our goal to make your life easier.

We are dedicated to helping our clients build a better relationship with their dogs through obedience training. We provide a variety of services and training options to help our clients meet their goals with their dogs. Training takes practise, patience and persistence and other family members need to participate in the training to provide a consistent environment. Our training method offers a balanced approach. We prefer to praise a dog with physical touch and verbal praise for behaviours that we want to maintain and ‘correct’ them with a leash and collar correction for behaviours that we want to modify. This way, the dog learns that there is a consequence for unwanted behaviour and eliminates the need to constantly use food as a reward. Through our contacts we can provide referrals for other experienced trainers in Niagara and Burlington as well as options for boarding your dog.
