We offer private training sessions, in your home, or at our location, or even at a location we meet at!
We have experience with a range of behaviours including fear and reactivity and are currently working towards the CBCC-KSA certification. We can use the private sessions for really any behaviour you need a hand with working on with Fido, such as; potty training, leash walking, recall, chewing, counter surfing, leash reactivity, fearful behaviour and confidence building, handling, polite greeting, jumping and more!
This is a socialization class with a slight touch on obedience, we cover topics such as handling, dog-dog play, surface and sound socialization and more!
This is a drop off style of puppy class since our facility isn't big enough for everyone to properly social distance while in the classroom. This means you will be given a specific time to drop off your puppy (between 5:00-5:30 pm, each puppy will have a different time to arrive to avoid crowding) the class is one hour long, spending the entire time with our certified trainer.
This class is suitable for dogs who are 12 weeks or over with their first 2 sets of vaccinations up to 20 weeks old!

What is Train 2 Groom?
Train to groom is a training package that is catered to grooming, it is a little different for each dog because each dog is so unique in their needs, for example, if your dog is more nervous of the dryer then the clippers we will spend more time building a positive association to the dryer. Our goal is to help Fido learn that grooming doesn't need to be scary and to help them get used to a regular schedule. When your dog is with us we will pair treats with grooming tools and the process of grooming to build a good association to grooming as a whole.
How long does it take?
Your dog will come to Brilliant Best Friends ONE day a week for five weeks straight, coming in the morning and leaving in the late afternoon. On the fifth week your dog will be fully groomed (Bath & Tidy or Shave) which is included in the price of this package. Every groom for the rest of your dog's life, you will receive 10% off the regular grooming price.
Train to groom for puppies
During those days we will introduce your puppy to many different grooming tools that might normally frighten a puppy while pairing them with super high-value treats and building positive associations so that future grooms for your puppy won't seem so scary.
Train to groom for adult dogs
It is a little bit different for adult dogs who don't enjoy grooming. We will first build a positive association with us and being here at BBF so the first day is just a fun hangout day while they learn that being here equals good things. The next 4 days while they are with us we will work on what they really don't enjoy (having nails done, being blow dried) and pair it will super yummy treats. We will be going at your dog's pace and listen to them when they are saying its too much.
