Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn.

Benjamin Franklin

At Daytripper Dog Training we teach you how to train your dog with game based training methods. When training is fun for both you and your dog, learning is faster and a strong relationship develops between you and your dog. Through games your dog will learn the concepts of focus (paying attention to you), proximity (it's rewarding being near you), calmness, confidence and much more. These concepts are invaluable in the real world whether it be walking on a loose leash, dealing with distractions, chilling in the house or coming when called. Our classes and this games-based innovative approach to training are based on the science of learning theory.

Our classes are small -- four dogs/handlers per instructor -- ensuring all students have one-on-one time with their instructor during each class.

Please note prong, choke and shock collars are not permitted in any of our classes.

Daytripper Dog Training Daytripper Dog Training has four locations. From spring until fall we teach outdoors at our main facility which is located at the south end of the City of Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, just east of the hamlet of Valentia, at the north end of Lake Scugog. From the fall until the spring we teach indoors in Port Perry, in the south end of Little Britain, and in Seagrave (agility only).

Our outdoor location has one fully fenced and gated regulation size agility ring nestled between our little apple orchard on one side and a small forest on the other, all on five country acres. You'll enjoy the relaxed, cottage-like atmosphere of the property, sitting under the two large shade trees situated near the ring and enjoying the action. There is a second fenced ring for other courses. Please note: Our outdoor location is also our home. Visits are by appointment only. Please contact us either by phone or email to schedule an appointment. We appreciate your co-operation.

Daytripper Dog Training offers several levels of agility training. In addition, we host fun matches, workshops and AAC sanctioned agility trials. Check out our "Agility Training" page for more details, along with our "Upcoming Events" page.

Looking to train your family dog? We offer courses including Puppy Kinder, Beginner, Intermediate, Rally and Tricks classes. Occasionally, during the spring/summer months we offer a Reactive Dog class. Please refer to our Obedience page for details. In addition, we host seminars on dog behaviour and our popular "Raising Canine" puppy seminar. Details can be found on our "Obedience Training" page and our "Upcoming Events" page.
