What People Are Saying...

"I took the Conditioning and Tricks class with Emily, my dog and I really enjoyed it! We learned so much about the importance of foundations and some really awesome tricks! We got great feedback every class and it was very well organized. Would take again!"

"I had the pleasure of attending a reactivity workshop led by the amazing Pliant Pack team. What a great experience! The trainers are incredibly knowledgeable in dog behaviour and positive reinforcement training methods, and made everyone feel comfortable in what could be a stressful situation. I learned a lot while attending this workshop, and my dog showed a noticeable improvement after only an hour of training. I highly recommend Pliant Pack to anyone looking for professional assistance in any aspect of dog ownership."

"I took the senior enrichment with my 15 year old dog Holly. This was a great workshop where we learned and practiced a variety of massage techniques for our senior dogs. Emily explained the various massages and gave everyone individual attention as they needed it."
