Training

All pets must complete a successful Meet & Greet before booking services. To schedule a Meet & Greet, please email me at maria@elementspetcare.com.

Walk and Train

On-leash walks tailored to you and your dog’s specific training goals. These are 1-hour sessions that include time spent working on basic behaviours of your choosing with walking breaks sprinkled in. This service is great for dogs who need a little extra one-on-one time. It is also a good option for owners who have busy lives and are looking for ways to efficiently install basic obedience behaviours.

  • Some behaviour options are:
    • nose targets (dog touches their nose to your hand)
    • paw targets (shake a paw, go to mat/bed, paws up on an object… ect)
    • sit
    • stand
    • down
    • doorway and gate manners
    • loose leash walking
    • appropriate greetings with other dogs and people
    • leave it
    • drop it
    • stay

We can also work on things not listed above; please feel free to contact me to discuss your specific request.

Trick Training

As a Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CDTI), I’m delighted to be able to assist pet owners in achieving trick titles. Trick training is not only fun, but it also strengthens your bond with your pet and provides necessary mental and physical exercise.

Trick witnessing for titles, as well as coaching, can be done virtually so this service is open to anyone who is interested. Cats welcome too! For more details click here.
