We are a well established obedience training organization with facilities in
downtown Toronto and Scarborough.
Through strictly humane methods, we have been teaching obedience for some 25
years, with an emphasis on "kindness" and working within the dog's own spirit.
Proficiency at all levels of training is achieved void of food, resulting in an
increase in bonding and a willingness to please. We are BIG on PRAISE! Not
only will your dog learn both the hand signals and verbal commands in a kind
manner and from the first level of training, but you will learn to "speak dog"
and "read your dog". All training is done to the standards of the Canadian
Kennel Club (CKC).
Instructors at Mother Knows Best Obedience School are members of the Canadian
Kennel Club (CKC) and the Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers
(CAPPDT). The expertise and proficiency of our Chief Instructor, Dorothy Avery,
has been conveyed and attested to through requested appearances on CTV's 5:00
O'Clock News, as well as their two hour Breakfast T.V. Show, her many published
articles on dog obedience, and interviews with the Toronto Sun, the Toronto
Star, EYE Newspaper, and City Dog Magazine. Dorothy also holds a certificate
in Emergency First Aid For Pets.
