Puppy Training

Enjoy a puppy who’s as Good As Gold with our Platinum Puppy programs

When it comes to puppy training, we kick it up an extra notch from gold to platinum.

Why? Because every moment you invest in your puppy’s training not only brings results and relief now—it’s an investment in an emotionally and behaviourally solid adult dog tomorrow.

Let us help you:

  • Put house training in the rearview mirror
  • Stop all the biting with those needle-sharp puppy teeth
  • Burn off and manage that excess puppy energy

  • Build solid basic manners and obedience foundations
  • Teach your puppy to walk nicely on leash and come when called
  • Help your puppy grow up into a friendly, easy-going dog you can take anywhere

Choose our fun, real-life results puppy training classes or our do-it-for-you puppy day school program.

Either way, our goal is the same: An easy puppy today and a great dog tomorrow.

Platinum Puppy Classes

Platinum Puppy training class

This super fun (and adorably cute) class seeks serious results: A well-behaved puppy now and, even more importantly, a well-behaved adult dog in your immediate future. So in addition to basic manners and obedience foundations, this real-life centred class focuses on real-life activities like easy grooming, fear-free vet visits, polite leash walking, good manners with fellow canines, and polite behaviour around family mealtimes. And of course, we’ll tackle pressing issues like house training, puppy biting, and excess puppy energy, too.

Platinum Puppy On The Town field trip class

We’re serious about real-life results, so our Platinum Puppy class graduates are invited (and encouraged!) to join us for On The Town—a unique field trip class designed to take your training results on the road throughout Calgary. You and your puppy will practice and refine all you’ve learned while enjoying the company of fellow classmates on a series of weekly field trips. We’ll take walks through Fish Creek Provincial Park, pick up supplies at Bone & Biscuit in South Calgary then sip a coffee while we chat on the Starbucks patio, your puppy will get to enjoy nature and wildlife in Carburn Park and we’ll take a ride on the LRT! The goal? A puppy (and eventually, an adult dog) who knows how to be on her best behaviour no matter the situation or where you take them.

Class details

  • 4 puppy field trips (one each week) 
  • Classes rotate between locations ( Fish Creek Park, Bone & Biscuit, Carburn Park and Anderson LRT Station) 
  • Puppy can continue in this program until 10 months of age 
  • $200 (inc. GST)

*Platinum Puppy On The Town Field Trip Class is open enrollment—that means you can start right away for continued growth!

*Please note: Your puppy must have completed  previous puppy training to register

*Please note: there will be no make up classes if you miss a class

*Classes do not run on long weekends

Once you have registered for this class you will be able to see your start date and the corresponding location. This is an open enrollment class so no matter what location you start at, you and your puppy will still get to visit all field trip spots!

We would love to work with you and your dog; unfortunately, we are not accepting new clients for private training at this time. Due to extremely high demand, we’ve had to close our waitlist. Please keep an eye on our website and social media pages for when we re-open our waitlist for private training. Please note, we still have several behaviour classes running and are always adding new dates. You can learn more about our group classes, including puppy and reactive dog training, by clicking on the link here! We thank you for your patience and understanding and look forward to working with you in the future!

Platinum Puppy Plus day school program (recommended)

Everything your puppy needs to grow into the dog of your dreams—all done for you. If work, kids, and commute already have you running ragged, let us take puppy training off your hands. Simply drop your puppy off for day school in the morning. While you work, we’ll train your puppy on her basic manners and obedience foundations, help her learn to play nicely with fellow canines, and even teach her to enjoy vet visits and grooming. At the end of your day, drop by to pick up your well-behaved, happy, pooped-out puppy. She’ll be ready for a low-key evening after her long day—a welcome change at the end of yours. And the best part? You’ll have invested in helping your puppy grow up to be the very best dog she can be.

Puppy training is a group effort

Everyone at Good As Gold gets in on our puppy training and raising programs. Not only that, but when it comes to Platinum Puppy Plus, the whole staff at Sundance Animal Hospital participates, too! The result? A beautifully socialized puppy who grows up into a well-balanced dog who loves people and fellow dogs, and can handle herself with grace in any situation.
