So my wife bought a cute little puppy and now we need to get her (the puppy of course) trained, who can recommend a good puppy training course (ideally on weekends. We are downtown Ottawa.

Thanks,
Peter

Actually you are partly right. It will be the puppy being trained. But it will also be you and your wife. :thumbs up
I am sure someone from your area will be chiming in soon. Good luck!!

Hi Peter. How old is your puppy?

Lucky you to live in Ottawa, you have the best of the best training centers available to you. I would strongly recommend you first get in touch with Dr. Jennifer Messer and ask her what centers apply her Kinderpuppy course curriculum (she's in Ottawa as well). http://www.pavski.ca/contact-us.html

You also have Carolyn Clark in Kanata....certified partner of the Karen Pryor training academy. http://www.carolark.com/index.html

And Cheryl Smith and her team at Forever Friends http://www.foreverfriendsdogtraining.ca/CLASSESSERVICES.html

Here's an article I'm sure you'll find invaluable.
