At WildFlower Dog Training we use force-free methods grounded in the science of behaviour change. 

Pavlov and Skinner are where it’s at! Find out why so many in the Greater Toronto and Surrounding Area are turning to us as their Canine Behaviour Coach.

BENEFITS

  • You’ll learn how to communicate with your dog in a language you both understand. 
  • Our force-free methods foster trust between you and your dog.
  • You’ll gain a deep understanding of your dog’s needs and how to set them up for success.
  • Training can be fun when you see just how much your dog can learn at any age. 

Clicker training

  • We use clickers. The clicker says to your dog “yes! That’s exactly what I want you to do.”
  • It is the fastest and most humane method of training available.
  • After hearing the click, your dog is reinforced with something they love. Typically food. And really awesome food, like hot dog, cheese or meatball.
  • The learner chooses the reinforcement. You’ll quickly find out what your dog loves and have a blast training together

Latest Stories from My Canine Behaviour Blog

 

One of our clients couldn’t stop Smudge the Golden Retriever from jumping all over visitors when they entered the house. Mom was at wits end; Grandma, tired of being bowled over at the front door, refused to visit. 

The solution? 

It’s far easier to train a behaviour we want versus a behaviour we don’t want. With WildFlower’s help, Mom learned how to teach Smudge to lie down on a mat when the doorbell rings. Life improved for everyone. Smudge had something to do when people came to the door, Mom was less stressed, and visitors could enter unassailed. What’s more, the new skills stuck. Smudge still runs for his mat whenever someone approaches rings the doorbell. 

 

 
 

At WildFlower Dog Training, our training programs are built around answers to these questions:

  • What do you want your dog to DO?
  • What does your dog need to live a happy and enriching life?
  • How can you build a trusting relationship with your dog?
  • How can you make training both fun and effective?

Science tells us they’re the key to changing behaviour, both in humans and dogs.
