We've got answers!

FAQ: Welcome
  • Do you take clients outside of Calgary?
    Yes, we can train you no matter where you reside! With our revolutionary programs, we are not confined to the city of Calgary. If you are in a different city or province - we can still help you and your dog meet your goals.
  • What does For Dog's Sake YYC do differently than everyone else?
    We have revolutionized dog training! Our programs are designed to help you make the most progress possible! With a ton of research, we base all of our programs on the human side of education. By doing this we ensure you make progress, we want you to understand the in's and out's of what you are doing and why you are doing it! You should never feel overwhelmed while training your dog.
  • Can you train my dog for me?
    Yes, we can! For Dog’s Sake YYC has begun to offer day training and board and trains. Day training is when a trainer comes to your home 2-4 times a week and works directly with your dog. The trainer ensures that your dog is being trained with proper timing and mechanics to help the training accelerate. ​ Board and Train is like summer camp for your dog (and let's face it, you too!) This is when we board your dog for 3 or 4 weeks to really dive into your dogs behaviour and personalize a training plan for the utmost success! ​ It doesn't end there though, while we are training your dog, you will be part of our classroom learning everything as we go! ​ This sets you up for success when you finally take the wheel back. We are currently only offering day training in South Calgary.
  • Do you guarantee results?
    No. There are a large number of variables that can have an effect on training and behaviour modification results, some of which are completely out of our control. We will take an incremental, systematic approach to help mitigate those variables, and we will coach you, if you need it, on the most effective and efficient mechanics for reinforcement-based training. Programs include support via our Classroom along with your individualized training plans to meet your goals.
  • Do you offer dog boarding?
    Yes, we now offer dog boarding. You can confidently go away for business or vacation knowing your dog is in good hands! We offer individualized boarding to ensure your dog gets all the attention and care they require. During their stay, your dog will enjoy playtime (if they are good with other dogs), on/off leash decompression walks, daily enrichment activities and can offer some basic training.
  • My dog has _____, can you still board them?
    Yes, we can still board dogs with behavioural issues! We understand that each dog is unique and has their own individual needs. We are experienced and trained to work with an array of behaviours and can provide a safe and comfortable environment for all dogs, no matter their needs. If your dog has any aggression, fear or specific triggers, please let us know ahead of time so that we can make sure to provide the best care for your dog.
  • Are you insured?
    Yes! We have insurance through ProFur!
  • What kind of leash and collar do I need during training?
    For Dog’s Sake YYC recommends training your dog on a flat buckle collar. However – harnesses, martingales and head halters are also allowed. Please use a 6′ long leash that you are comfortable holding for extended periods. ​ For some of our group outings, you may require a long line for "off-leash" work ​ Retractable leashes (i.e. Flexi-leads), choke and prong collars are not permitted in our classes.
  • Can I get a refund for my program/boarding?
    Unfortunately, there are no refunds on training packages, programs or boarding. ​ Training packages are only valid for the dog they were originally purchased for and expire within 12 months.
