Question Burlington Area Dog Trainer?

Hello all!
Just wondering if anyone has any recomendations for a dog trainer in the Oakville/Burlington ON area?
Any input would be appreciated!

If you don't mind a short drive, I would highly recommend the Hamilton SPCA (East end of Hamilton Mtn, 20 min from QEW/403 split). I've found the trainers thereto be really good (positive training methods) and they really focus on training the owner, stressing good doggie manners (not just the tricks!). Plus they are significantly less $ than some of the independent trainers - and the money goes to a good place, IMHO.

I've known a few people to recommned McCann's - they're in the area, but I haven't used them.

Good luck

C.

I've actually heard negative things about Scollars in Collars and I was in class at McCanns with several people who had been to Scollars in Collars first - because Scollars in Collars is cheaper then McCanns.

I can't say enough good about McCanns. They're great. In the class there is a main teacher and then a teacher for every 4-5 people so you get alot of one on one attention.

McCanns is my suggestion They have a pretty good website you should check out : http://www.mccanndogs.com/intro.htm
