Nadine Francis – Certified Professional Dog Trainer
“Empowering one dog owner at a time – with knowledge, practice & patience.”
Meet Nadine Francis, the owner of Good Doggy! Nadine is a certified professional dog trainer in Omemee, Ontario. If you have a dog with behaviour problems Nadine can help you regain control of your dog. Let us show you how!
Is life with your dog stressful? Do you want to know how to crate train or housebreak a puppy? Is your dog pulling and jumping on leash? Good Doggy! offers several dog training programs to address your needs. We have something for everyone!
Dog Training Workshops
Interested in group lessons with Good Doggy!?
For dogs over 4 months of age, and dogs that are vaccinated, we offer an ongoing 6 week program on Thursday nights. Group class is 7pm to 8pm. Give a bit of extra time on lesson 1 for introductory information. Prior GD clients are also allowed to attend at no extra cost.
Do you need a bit of help with your dog’s manners? Would you like to do more work around other people and dogs? Does your dog bark, reactive or pull on the leash? Do they listen to you? Do you need to tweak your dog’s obedience? Need to press the reset button? Get your dog to learn to pay attention to you and not the other dogs and people? Have you completed a puppy program and are ready for the next level? Send us a message! Your dog will need to know some basics before attending this class, but does not have to have any formal training
Lesson 1 and Lesson 6 may go over the hour a bit as we introduce ourselves and do the final test as a group; we will do our best to wrap things up in a timely manner!
The focus will be leash manners, impulse control, self regulation, learning simple dog body language cues, basic obedience: down, leave it, recall, recall with distractions, impulse control, place command etc. The grads will then be tested on lesson 6 in order to graduate. We are looking at achieving a nice, balanced, happy, obedient dog we can take anywhere with us.
Each graduate will get a grab bag and a grad certificate upon completion. Certificates are emailed to clients.
The test will be loosely based on the CKC Good Neighbour Test.
You and Your Dog Must Must Complete these 12 Steps to graduate with certificate:
- Accepting A Friendly Stranger
- Politely Accepts Petting
- Appearance and Grooming
- Out For A Walk
- Walking Through A Crowd
- Sit/Down On Command and Stay In Place
- Come When Called
- Reaction To A Passing Dog
- Reaction To Distractions
- Supervised Isolation
- Walking Through A Door/Gate
To prepare properly you will need:
- Treat pouch, moist treats
- 30 foot training long line
- 6 foot leash
- Pet cot or dog bed (in the owners home) we provide the ones you will use here
