Keeping Pets & Humans Happy!

Welcome to Happy Paws Canine Solutions Dog Training & Dog Walking. We are a business for families and their pet dogs. We use science-based, positive reinforcement training strategies to get real life results while protecting your relationship with your dog. We are continuously upgrading our education to stay on top of the most up to date information regarding dog training.

Group Dog Training Classes

Group dog training classes are a fun and rewarding experience that most dogs can benefit immensely from. These 4-week classes focus on a variety of skills to set your pooch up for long-term success. Depending on their age and skill level, they'll be assigned to:

Puppy Kindergarten (up to 6 months)

Adult Basics (6+ months)

Adult Advanced (for graduates of Adult Basics)

Group classes are taught in Collingwood and Meaford.

Private Dog Training Sessions

Would your pooch benefit from one-on-one training sessions? We can train in your home, or a pre-arranged outdoor location. We only use Positive Reinforcement training, which is a method of dog training that focuses on praising and rewarding your dog for their good behaviours, while ignoring unwanted behaviours. It is an extremely effective, compassionate, and force-free method. Private dog training classes are available in Owen Sound, Meaford, Collingwood, Thornbury, and The Blue Mountains.

Dog Walking and Walk & Train Sessions

Daily walks are an important part of your dog's everyday routine. Not only do they provide a good bathroom break, but they also give your dog much-needed exercise and stimulation. We're here to walk your dog on a schedule during the day, when you can't be there because of work commitments. Or, if you're unable to give your dog long walks due to mobility issues. Whatever your needs are, we are delighted to be a part of your dog's life. 

Walk & Train sessions incorporate aspects of positive reinforcement training during a fun outdoor walk. We will focus on leash-training,  recall, distractions, and more! These sessions are available for more than one pooch at a time, if they're from the same household.
