Looking for good Obedience trainers in Van, BC

I am looking into obedience classes and am just wondering if any of you have any suggestions on where I should look? I was thinking Petcetera but have gotten mixed reviews. They have puppy kindergarden which caught my attention... what do you think? Any info on this would be greatly apprechiated!

Thanks so much!

Not sure about good ones but this summer I went to obedience classes with Scott Taylor and they were aweful. The classes were waaaaay too full, and he was over 30 mins late 3 times in a row. He also made a little boy cry. Basically an all around bad experience!

I've used Custom Canine in Burnaby, they are very good, great with dogs, not aggressive training at all. But $$$. If that's not an issue, they're great.

I use Jaime at Absolute K9 and have always been happy with her classes

on the North Shore there is Joan who is wonderful as well:

Your local animal shelter might have some recomendations and you can cross reference those with your local better business bureau.
