Owning A Dog Should Be Fun....

Our Classes

This class is continuous enrollment so if you get your puppy at 10 weeks you can jump in then or if you are ready at 9 weeks you would start then.

Puppy Graduate

will follow Puppy Primer after 6 weeks.

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Allison Groff.  I have known Allison for six years now.  Since Stanley, my Husky/German Shepard was a new puppy. Right away I knew Allison was special.  She is patient, supportive and was sensitive to Stanley's needs during class.  As well as my own. She is a very responsible person and I could leave Stanley with her without worry. Allison has recently completed her second formal designation in Dog Training and Animal Behavior with the Karen Pryor Academy which indicates her dedication to her field. You can trust Allison 100% with your pet. I personally feel very confident in telling you that this is where you need to take your dog for care and training.  And Stanley agrees with me."

The Pet dog industry was cited as a 6.5 billion dollar industry in 2013.  There has been an incredible explosion of pet dog businesses in Canada since then.  It is extremely important to choose carefully when selecting a pet dog trainer to coach you and your beloved canine to a wonderful healthy relationship.  Allison the owner of Always Focused Dogs is not only a dog lover extraordinaire she has the education and experience.  Her integrity, honesty and hard working values make her the best choice in Simcoe County! It isn’t about numbers it’s about quality!

My fiancé and I adopted our dog, Chance in December just before the holidays from a shelter.  He’s a rescue from Israel so he has his challenges: people entering the house/ yard, going for walks and passing people and other dogs, chasing trucks/buses and barking at them as they drive by(our fenced backyard backs onto a street.) There were a few times where I wondered if we made the right decision in adopting Chance and I dreaded taking him for walks because of his behavior.  We tried other trainers but it wasn’t working.  When we found Allison, we all fell in love with her because of her form of training and she is able to come to our house making it less stressful for both Chance and us. Chance loves his training sessions because of all of the treats and he loves proving to us how smart he is!  Allison assured us that Clicker training will bring out the side of Chance we knew was there all along!  After a few sessions, both Chance my fiancé and I are so much more confident and happy!  Chance is always wagging his tail and is excited for his training sessions – he used to hate them before!

Chance still has more training to do, but we are so lucky to have Allison with us during this process!
