Welcome to Love 2 Play Dog Training.  Dog training in Nelson, Castlegar, Rossland, Salmo, and in the Slocan Valley has never been so much fun!   Dog obedience in the West Kootenays is more than just obedience--it's games, laughter and teamwork.  We can help you discover the opportunities possible with your canine companion; from basic dog obedience that will give you a well mannered pet, to obedience or agility competition, to plain old fun, we can help you and your dog get the most out of each other!

We offer group classes, private training and day training not only in dog obedience for a well mannered pet, but also in agility, tricks, musical freestyle...just about anything you want to train your dog to do, we teach.  And always, always in small classes so you get the individual attention you deserve.  Lots of choices, lots of possibilities, lots of fun...lots of play, because we Love 2 Play. 



Dog Training

A well mannered dog can:

  • Go anywhere and meet anyone
  • Get along with other dogs
  • Be calm in all situations
  • Be fun to hang out with

BUT sometimes dogs behave in (natural doggie) ways that make them less than enjoyable to us humans…..Do any of the following issues cause problems between you and your dog?

  • Pulling on the leash when you are walking together
  • Jumping up on people
  • Chewing or eating everything in sight
  • Barking, nipping, pulling when greeting people or other dogs
  • Not coming when called
  • “Too crazy” to take out in public or even just to hang out with
  • Has bad manners that make you a little ashamed of his behaviour and your lack of control

We can help!
