Group Classes

Hotdiggity Dog winter classes are held in an unheated riding arena.  Warm weather classes are held outdoors.

If you are interested in taking one of our group classes please contact us.

Building the Bond

In order to train your dog,  he must trust you.  He must want to be with you, feel safe with you.  In this relationship-based obedience class, students will learn how to create that level of trust and build a bond that will last a lifetime. At the same time, students will put in place the foundation for two key skills: coming when called and walking on a loose leash.

Fee: 4 weeks - $125

Next session starts Sunday March 26 at 1:30 p.m.

Classes will be held in Dunrobin

Classes are 1 to 1-1/2 hours long.

Managing The Reactive Dog

Do you have problems walking your dog on leash?

Does your dog over-react to the sight of another dog, even at a distance?

Does he pull, bark, suddenly lunge, growl, or spin? 

Are you embarrassed by your dog’s behaviour?

Have you started walking at 5:00 a.m. in order to avoid other dog walkers? 


Hotdiggity Dog’s “Managing Your Reactive Dog” course can put the joy back into your daily walks.  This 6-week course will help you understand what is happening and why, and will teach you ways to handle your over-excited dog. 


Fee:  6 weeks -- $180

Next Session TBA

Classes to be held in Dunrobin.

Class limited to 4 dogs

Walking Well Clinic

Teaching a dog to walk on a loose leash can be a frustrating experience for many owners. Dogs like to pull to get to where they're going, without regard to the person on the other end of the leash who is being dragged unwillingly down the street. In this 3 week course, we help you train your dog to walk well, without pulling or lunging.

Fee: 3 weeks — $90

Next session TBA

Classes will be held in Carp

Moving On

This course, offered in the warm weather months, is for students who have completed a basic obedience course but need more experience walking their dog on a loose leash and dealing with the various social interactions of everyday life.

Fee: 4 weeks — $100

Next session:  May (dates to be announced)

Classes are held in various locations around Kanata and Carp.

Obedience for Agility Dogs

Dogs who participate in the great sport of agility need some extra skills. They need to be able to focus on the course they are running, keep an eye and ear on their handler, and respond immediately to any verbal or positional cue while blocking out all distractions. This course helps dogs develop those skills.

Fee: 4 weeks — $125

Next session TBA

Classes will be held in Dunrobin

Recall Clinic

The Recall is the most important command you can teach your dog. It can save your dog's life. If your dog only comes most of the time and not all of the time, then you need to work on this command. This workshop, which is run in 3 phases for a total of 4-5 hours, will help you train your dog to want to come when called.

Fee: 4-5 hours — $125

Next session:  1:30 p.m. on Sunday April 23, 30 and May 7

Classes will be held in Fitzroy Harbour
