The 56th annual ALBERNI VALLEY KENNEL CLUB Championship Dog Show, scheduled for October 16, 17 & 18th, 2020 at Glenwood Centre in Port Alberni, has been cancelled.
We are unable to hold this event due to COVID-19 health restrictions at this time.
We are looking into making changes to our Dog Show event to meet health protocols but unable to do so for October 2020.
Basic Obedience Training
We are very proud to offer our Basic Obedience Training over the past 3+ years. Just in 2018 we trained 106 dogs which is 26% more dogs than previous year.
Primarily young dogs, but we have had many older dogs take the class with success.
Our instructor, Synneva Stubbs has lots of experience with all sorts of dogs. As a Certified Canine Behaviour Specialist, Synneva has the patience and knowledge to help you with any struggles you may have with training your dog.
We have added training for advanced obedience skills. We can now prepare you for taking your dog to Novice Obedience &/or Novice Rally trials. We can also prepare you for the Canine Good Neighbour test which comprises of 12 obedience exercises to demonstrate good canine manners.
Every dog has their own successes. We have had several dogs go on to earn their Canine Good Neighbour Certificate as well as titles in Novice Rally.
We are proud to support service dogs and their acceptance in the community. We assist a couple handlers that have “Service dogs in Training” with their on going training needs. Shout out to Argos & Ladybug!
If you have a dog and looking for some training that is fun for you and your dog, please contact us.
