About Monkey Business

The majority of dogs surrendered each year to pounds and rescues are between the ages of 7-12 months and 96% of them have not received any formal obedience training.

Get your dog started off on the right paw!

Taking classes with your dog helps to strengthen the human/animal bond, develops a common language and helps prevent behaviour problems before they start!

Learn to understand your dog and how to teach them to be good canine citizens in a family friendly and fun environment.

Over the last 10 years, Monkey Business has seen the number of graduates grow from 30 to over 200 per year! Our services have expanded to include Kinderpuppy, Basic, Intermediate, Brain Games, Advanced, Private Behaviour consultations, Virtual class, Private backyard classes and more!
