Foster Families Wanted - Jack Russell Rescue of Ontario

Have you ever been interested in helping out some of the less fortunate dogs in our society? The Jack Russell Rescue of Ontario is currently in need of foster homes for the many abandoned Jack Russells that come through their doors.

Please visit their website for more information on how you can help. Once you've shared your home with a Jack Russell, I can almost guarantee you will always have one in your life.

They are also urgently looking for a foster home for a little tri-coloured boy who has been given up once again. His name Pierre - a five year old, smooth coated, active male, who is friendly, house trained, has basic commands but needs to go in a foster home without other dogs. If you think that you can help foster Pierre, please contact me at for more information on this lovely boy. I will be helping anyone who fosters this boy with an issues that arise so that we can get him adopted in a permant home.

Start 'Em Young - Dog Training Milton Ontario

The best time to start training your dog is right from the beginning. There is no need to wait a certain amount of time before you introduce your new dog/pup to obedience training. Of course, with puppies, because of short attention spans, it's best to keep training simple, quick and fun. Adult dogs are able to work longer, but when starting with a new adult dog it is best to do the same as the above.

We start off teaching commands by luring and with positive reinforcement Sometimes we also utilize placement techniques for those dogs who are not interested in the lure.

Below is a video of a pup in the initial stages of training.

So have some fun training your new dog/pup - and remember to keep it fun!

New Group Dog Obedience Classes Starting!

Our next group session of Smart Dogs Basic in Milton will be starting on April 18th from 7:15-8:15pm. Session runs for 7 weeks and cost is $180.00. ONLY THREE SPOTS LEFT!

We help you train your dog in all of the basics; sit, down, stand, stay, recall, walk nice, leave it.

The best thing that you can do for your dog is train him/her. It builds a bond with dog and owner, and allows you, the owner, to gain and maintain control, which is extremely important for a happy relationship with your dog.
