At On Cue Animal Training, we are creating a movement.

Our goal is to educate dog owners that training can be fun and positive! Through the use of operant conditioning and behaviour training, we help you and your dog create an amazing bond that allows you to be even more effective with your training.

Puppy

Attending a well-run puppy socialization class may be the single most important thing you can do to ensure your puppy’s proper behavioural development.

Obedience

Behavioural problems are the #1 reason pets are surrendered to shelters. It is estimated that 4 million dogs are surrendered to shelters each year.

Reactivity

The two most common reasons that dogs are returned to shelters are aggression toward people and aggression toward other animals.

Agility

Agility is a dog sport in which the handler directs a dog through an obstacle course while being accurate and at speed.

Backed by Science

We practice Force Free dog training. That means we don’t use any force or negative training techniques with our dogs. Instead, we employ clicker training, treats, and other methods of positive reinforcement. These methods are scientifically proven to work—yet some trainers are insistent on using negative methods, such as choke chains, kicking, and even shocking. Not here. Not ever.

On Cue is a one-of-a-kind training facility in Nova Scotia. Our 8,000 SF facility features two stories and four rooms. We offer:

  • Obedience room
  • Agility room with 2”-thick flooring made specifically to support dogs’ joints
  • Puppy room
  • Retail store full of local treats, bones, toys, and food for dogs of all ages

Classes for Every Dog

No matter what type of class you and your dog are looking for, we have it. We offer everything from agility and reactivity to basic obedience and puppy training. We even offer classes where you can dance with your dog! Plus, our entire team is just super cool—and we LOVE dogs!

Whether you want a fun, well-mannered family dog, you’d like to train your dog as a service dog, or you aspire to competing on the national stage, we can help.

Available Classes

We currently run over 25 different classes each week. Our 4 most popular classes are puppy kindergarten, basic obedience, reactivity, and agility. No matter what your looking for we have a class for you!
