Positive reinforcement, peer reviewed scientific training methods.
Reward Based & Force Free.
Our trainers are certified professional dog trainers with several years' experience in the fields of dog training, dog daycare, veterinary, grooming & more.
Sherwood Barks ensures our trainers are educated with the latest methods and techniques by staying involved with continuing education.
What to expect:
Learn how to solve unwanted behaviors by teaching an alternate behavior and building up confidence slowly via counter counditioning, desensitization and classical and/or operant conditioning.
We will not be recommending or following any training methods that involve corrections, pain, intimiation or fear. Our job is to educate dog owners about the dangers and myths around "dominance", "pack leader" and "alpha" theories.
Our training is built on creating a relationship built on trust, respect, admiration and leadership. Not corrections, intimation or pain.
In your first session, we will sit down and talk about behaviors you'd like to work on and create a plan for you to follow through with at home!
It is your choice to book follow up sessions. Follow up sessions can be offered at a discount.

Stay & Trains
You drop off your pup at daycare for the day, and our trainer's work with them one on one in short sessions thoughout the day. We train to your specific needs/requests, video the sessions, and send to you afterwards so that you may watch, learn, and practice the skills taught to your pup.
*Please note, this also requires practice of these skills taught to the puppy by the owners at home for the learned skills to continue to be reinforced in your home environment.
*This requires booking through the daycare and training centre to ensure availability in advance.
