Raising Rover

Positive Reinforcement dog training and behaviour consulting services in Toronto.

Are you:

  • Sometimes frustrated or embarrassed by your dog’s behaviour?
  • Concerned about your dog’s anxiety or aggressive behaviour?
  • Getting a puppy and want to make sure he grows into the best dog he can be?

Then call us! For 15 years we’ve been helping clients bring out the best in their dogs using positive reinforcement techniques that are not only humane and effective but easy to implement. Interested in clicker training? We’re been doing that for 12 years, but feel it’s important to provide options so if you feel clickers aren’t for you, no problem.

Head Trainer Caroline Applebee has a B.Sc. in Biology, specializing in Evolution and Animal Behaviour and was the first trainer in Toronto to qualify for  certification. Raising Rover is the only school in the city to offer that  combination of education, qualifications and experience. In addition to getting you results, we are committed to client service and it’s our pleasure to make your training experience an enjoyable one.

Servicing Toronto, Raising Rover offers puppy socialization classes, real life manners for dogs of all ages in the Advanced Life Skills program as well as customized in-home private training.

Whether you are looking to get your puppy off to the best possible start, address behaviour problems or just want to give your already good dog a few new challenges, Raising Rover has both the dog expertise and people coaching skills to help you achieve long lasting results.
