Covid Canines

The world is in chaos, everyone is panicking, a lot of us can’t even go outside, what the heck are we supposed to do with our dogs?!

This time can either make or break your dog’s behaviour. Don’t allow this valuable training opportunity go to waste. Let us help you make the most of social isolation and quarantine with your pooch with one of our online courses.

Cultured Canines has almost ten years of experience helping the people of Calgary be able to ENJOY their relationship with their dog. We’ve helped thousands of people live more harmoniously with their canine companions through our unique training methods. If you’d like to read more about our training philosophy, click here!

May update: We will not be offering in person or outdoor courses until it is safe to do so. We recognize that there is still a large demand for our regular courses, and we thank everyone who has called and emailed to inquire about them. We are choosing to put the health and safety of our clients and staff above all else. Even though we could practice social distancing in a park outdoors, inevitably people will be focused on their dogs (which they should be!!) and get too close to other clients or staff unintentionally. COVID-19 can be deadly, and we are not taking any chances. Our online courses use the same training methods as our in person courses do, and to make sure everyone does get the outdoor course experience, participants in the online C.O.O.L. Course will get 50% off an outdoor course when it is safe for us to offer them again. We are at our best when we can seamlessly interact with you and your dogs in an outdoor setting and we don’t want to be unable to give everyone the full “Cultured Canines” experience!
