Dog Training That Works for You and Your Dog!

At The Crunchy Canine (formerly Canines In Balance) we understand each dog is unique and therefore we use a tailored approach for each individual client we work with. In order to suit your unique needs, we offer a variety of training options and programs. Once you decide to work with us, we will come up with a plan to help you achieve your goals and have the dog you’ve always wanted!

Puppy Training (8 weeks – 5 months)

Get your puppy started off on the right track at an early age to set you up for success in the future! Our Puppy Training is far more comprehensive than any of the group classes you hear about. It will teach your puppy the skills needed to become a well behaved companion, beyond basic commands. We cover crate training, potty training, general handling, socialization, manners and more! Learn everything you need to know about raising your puppy in the comfort of your own home with one on one training!

Private In-Home Training

Our private in-home training sessions are for those who are looking for a tailored one-on-one approach to training their dog. We offer customized training programs to meet your own unique goals, in the convenience of your own home and neighbourhood on a flexible schedule. We can resolve just about any problem behaviours with private training!

Group Classes

Our group classes are a fun way to learn basic obedience in a group setting. We offer a variety of group classes to suit your needs including Puppy Social & Enrichment, Puppy Preschool, and Level 1 & 2 Obedience, as well as fun classes like agility and scent detection.

Day Camp & Training Walks

Dogs need exercise! No matter their size or age, exercise is vital for a happy and fulfilled dog. Many behaviour issues can be solved simply by giving your dog an outlet to get rid of their excess energy. If you are short on time, or maybe your dog just needs more exercise than you can give them, our Day Camp and/or Training Walks will ensure your dog is good and tired by the time you get home from work. Since we are also dog trainers, our Campers and walk clients will be learning and working on their listening skills and manners. We currently serve Dundas, Hamilton, and Stoney Creek.
