Positively changing dogs’ lives since 2005.
clevercanines as we know it today was inspired by a realization in 2005. Loving a dog isn’t enough on its own to provide a safe, healthy and balanced relationship. Thousands of dogs are surrendered yearly, not for lack of love, but for misunderstood behavior problems that could be overcome with patience and proper training. This inspiration became a business that offers life-saving education for dogs and dog owners that had previously not been available in Calgary.
We enable Calgary dog owners to experience the freedom of the healthy, balanced relationship their dogs need to be safe in all situations, and respectful of people, other dogs, and the environment. All dogs have an innate ability to think, problem-solve, work and please. When we truly understand our dogs – how they respond, why they do what they do, why they react, and how they communicate –only then can we influence their behaviour. We empower our clients with information on developmental changes, specific behaviours and reactions, and through the study and observation of canine communication and signals. We want our clients to know what their dogs are communicating in any situation. Training can only get us so far…but a deep and meaningful understanding of our dogs is crucial to giving them a safe, happy and comfortable life.
We believe everyone can experience a lifetime of freedom with their dogs. This means: CONFIDENCE that you can trust yourself and your dog in any situation PRIDE in your dog, from a healthy, balanced relationship based on mutual respect NO-STRESS living with your dog, or when your dog is away from you JOY from having your dog in your life the way you’ve always wanted
