Training fear aggression into confidence

Kush

“Canine Campus is absolutely amazing, and Lucinda is a very incredibly talented trainer and coach to both My American Bulldog Kush and to me.  Her knowledge, confidence, support, and her genuinely caring are really inviting and beneficial for both of us.

I rescued Kush from a bad situation at 6 months old.  At the beginning I was told that it was less than a 50/50 as to whether he would have to be put down because of his aggressiveness towards humans and other dogs.  Lucinda did home visits and gave me great training methods on how to deal with an extreme case like him.  She invited us to participate in High Anxiety and that was the beginning of turning him into such a happy, smart, obedient, and more confident dog, and turning me in to a better leader for my boy.  He has since completed Manners 2, as well as Agility for fun, and we are enrolled in Advanced in the Park, which we are really enjoying!

Her training methods are spectacular, and frankly I believe that no one else would have had the same outcome with both of us that Lucinda has had, and it really is because she cares so much about the success of the dogs and the people in her classes.  Canine Campus has two rooms separated by a glass wall, which is super because when Kush needed a mental break to shake things out, he could go in the second room and not miss any of the class.

Thank you to Lucinda and her team for taking the time to work with Kush,  not only saving his life, but also being so important in manifesting an amazing dog/owner bond that is the greatest feeling in the world

The smile on Kush’s face, which I never saw until I worked with Lucinda, really says it all!  – Cedric Fortin”

Helping Anxious Dogs with Positive training

Henry

Thank you so much for the reactive training classes. We learned so much, and will continue to put into practice what you taught us. I have gone to numerous dog training classes and seminars  in Canada and the US over the years, but your class was quite simply the best! I can see why your dogs have won so many obedience titles.

Already we have made headway. Yesterday was the first day Henry didn’t go ballistic when another dog walked into the lobby of our building. He looked at the other dog, looked at me, and sat for treat. I gave him a treat because it was the first time he’s ever done that. Six weeks ago we never would have been able to take him on Yonge. The two times we tried it, he was a leaping, barking maniac. Now he pretty much ignores bikes and even motorcycles, which is amazing.

Overcoming our dogs “misbehaviors”

The Florencia Family and Telly

Thanks so much to Lucinda of Canine Campus. Our private lesson with you was invaluable. You gave us such hands on, useable training strategies for overcoming our dogs “misbehaviors”. We were really in need of help, and thanks to you we are now working towards a far happier environment in our home. We found your help so useful that the whole family now comes to weekly manners training. I would highly recommend Canine Campus. –The Florencia Family and Telly

First time dog owners

Kathryn Gibson with Angus

We are first time dog owners and discovered through Canine Campus that Angus has a dominant personality. Thank you Lucinda for teaching us how to deal with this in a positive and effective way. The classes were incredibly informative and helpful, but above all, they are great fun and a wonderful way to socialize your dog. Lucinda’s knowledge of dogs and behavior patterns in different breeds is exceptional. –Kathryn Gibson
