At Daytripper Dog Training we teach you how to train your dog.  We feel that it's important for you to develop the skills to teach your dog because, after all, it's you that lives with your dog.  We use current training methodologies that utilize positive reinforcement to not only train your dog but to help build a better relationship with your dog, whether it's your new puppy, your family pet or your canine athlete.

Myth or Fact?

                "The dog bit with no provocation or warning."

                 "Awww, he rolled on his back; he wants a belly rub."

Joan Weston of Fangs But No Fangs Behavioural Consulting Services is back at Daytripper for another educational seminar about dog behaviour.  The topic of this seminar is canine body language.

How do dogs indicate when they are stressed, happy, calm or anxious?  Does a wagging tail always indicate a happy dog?  Are raised hackles a sign of aggression?  Does a dog baring teeth signal aggression?  The answers may surprise you.

Learn what your body language is telling your dog and how to better understand what your dog is saying with his body language.

If there are dogs in any aspect of your life or you have children that are exposed to dogs, then this seminar is for you.  Body language is a dog's primary form of communication.  Learn how to better understand your dog and others you encounter in your life.

This is a "people only" seminar.  Please leave your dogs at home.

Space is limited -- preregistration is required.  Registrations will not be accepted at the door.

Agility Instructional Fun Matches

Daytripper Dog Training is offering Starters and Advanced/Masters level Instructional Agility Fun Matches. See below for an explanation of how these fun matches are structured.  The dates are:


Next Dates:

Sunday, September 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (approx)

Watch this page for more dates.

If you have not participated in one of our instructional fun matches in the past these are fun matches with a twist.  Rather than simply running the course, Lane White, our head instructor and Masters level judge, will walk each course with the participants providing handling suggestions.  Participants will then run the course.  There are three Standard courses and one Steeplechase course at the end of the day. Food and toys are welcome in the ring.

This is a great opportunity to work outdoors on grass in a fully fenced and gated ring. 

We will run at least three different courses and the cost is $40/dog.

Because of the format of these fun matches space is limited and pre-registration is mandatory.  Please contact us to reserve your spot, telling us your dog's name and jump height. Don't wait and be disappointed when we fill. 

The fun matches will run rain or shine



Fun Matches

$7.00/run.  Two minutes in the ring.  Treats and toys are welcome in the ring.  If you plan on attending one of the fun matches, please email for information about the location and parking.

Sunday, May 14 -- first dog on the line at 10:00 a.m.  CANCELLED due to weather
