Boarding: We offer a fun and safe experience for your pupper boarding with us. We are not a kennel facility, so your dog lives within the house as one of the pack fam. With two resident dogs for companionship, there is never a shortage of fun and entertainment for your pup while they are with us. Of course, if your doggo isn’t the particularly sociable kind, we are set up at Fur Life for both private and shared spaces to accommodate various needs. Your pup will have plenty of adventure time during the days with hikes, outings, yard time, supervised socialization (if they are in to that) and more, while also having their own personal crate space where they can go for rest, meals and quiet time. Dog safety is a paramount priority at Fur Life, and fun is a close second.

Day School: A structured, safe and ultimately 100% supervised day boarding experience for your dog. Drop off in the morning, and your dog will have a day of school with a pack of fellow K9 students!
Day school is an excellent way to give your dog the opportunity for exercise, appropriate stimulation, safe social experiences, and training to boot! Not to mention there is no guilt of leaving your doggo home alone all day if you are at work!
We are currently accepting dog applications for our day school program.

Private Training: Designed for people looking to strengthen their relationship with their dog and learn how to work with their dogs needs and energy. We typically work on the foundations that we believe create a well mannered dog. The goal is for your dog to be a good and happy citizen, one who can be at home AND in the world while making good choices!
As the owner, you will learn ways to read your dog, and identify triggers/cues that will help you make good handling choices. You will get lots of handling practice and support, you will learn about operant conditioning and choosing reinforcement or consequence in your training, alongside some psychology to support your understanding and relating with your dog. Various issues may be addressed such as: boundaries, pulling on leash, leash reactivity/aggression, barking, jumping, resource guarding, destructive behaviours (ie-wrecking your house!), off leash reliability/recall, separation anxiety, socialization, impulse control, and general obedience and developing good manners.
Email us for more information or to set up an assessment.
Virtual Training: If you are not local, but you would like to work with me - you're in luck! We can work remotely on many things. We connect on camera and talk through your needs and challenges with your dog, and I provide you with tangible tools to apply and try with support and follow up. Education is necessary to be successful with our dog/human relationships, and this is easily translated in the online space. After a brief discussion and some tangibles provided, then you go away and try the tools we discussed. After a time we follow up for questions, evaluation and progression.

Group Classes: Lindsay teaches Pet Manners classes through The Naughty Dogge in Metchosin. If you would like a foundational learning experience that allows you to engage and learn skills in a group with other dogs and people, this might be a fit for you.
