Kingston Ontario Dog Training Services
You bought a pet because you wanted a friend. The problem becomes when your friend starts acting out in a way that you can’t quite handle. A problematic dog will quickly find you at the end of your knowledge about dogs AND the end of your patience. Luckily Wade’s Dogmanship is here to make sure your struggles are ended sooner rather than later.
Whether you’re struggling with a dog who has a bite history and has been failed or denied by other services or if your happy-go-lucky pup just needs to learn how to settle down there’s a service that can help you achieve your goals! In all programs, obedience is taught and behaviour is addressed no matter what you’re struggling with.

What Makes Wade’s Dogmanship Different?
No Multiple Tiers
Wade’s Dogmanship doesn’t operate on a multiple tier model. There’s no beginner, intermediate, advanced levels. The difference in program price has nothing to do with what type of results you can expect. Rather, they are based on what you want to accomplish. That one big problem, a few problems or ALL the problems.
Wade’s Dogmanship is a 1-on-1 service. You get 100% of the trainer’s attention to ensure you have the resources and skills you need to succeed with your dog.
The Real World is the proving ground
Many of my clients complain that their dogs were perfect in a class but struggled in the real world. I want to make sure you understand that training in an indoor space like an obedience school isn’t a bad thing, and it’s not the problem. The problem is taking those skills and bringing them to the real world. This is something that Wade’s Dogmanship excels in! Real world obedience under real world distractions.
A Balanced Approach
Many trainers are very dogmatic about their beliefs on dog training. The biggest sources of controversy is whether or not to use food or corrections in training. To me, this completely looks past the biggest point in dog training which is bettering the relationship. Both reward and consequence are required to show our dogs what we like and what we don’t. Wade’s Dogmanship looks past no tool or approach if it means that is what your dog requires to find balance and an understanding of the rules.
We Give To The Dog First
This is REALLY weird to many people and trainers. Many of the problems that our dogs struggle with can come down to unfulfilled needs and desires. This is much different than the blanket “your dog is being dominant” theory to behaviour issues. Sometimes, this solves the problems without ever having to address them. However, in the even that it doesn’t solve the problem, it is significantly easier to solve if we have to address it with reward and consequence.

- The small adjustments to how you live and interact with your dog that make the big difference
- How to have a calmer dog without spending hours exercising him or her into the ground
- How important PLAY is to your dog and what PLAY STYLES your dog enjoys the most (spoiler: all those play styles modern literature tell you to avoid, I’ll show you how to use them properly)
- How to use reward and consequence to draw a crystal clear expectation of behaviour
- 1 Session (between 1-2 hours) + Follow Up (30 minutes)
- Curated resources by Wade to progress further than your session
