At The Great Canadian Dog Academy, you will see what makes us different from the start. Our dog training experts are masters of Dog Psychology and Behaviour Modification.

When looking at dog trainers in Edmonton, you will quickly find that although they share a passion for dogs, the majority will advocate one of the two primary methods of dog training – The Force Approach or Positive Reinforcement.

Both ways can be adequate in training a dog in basic activities like obedience and agility, but a genuinely useful Dog Trainer will know how to teach dogs through repetition.


Over the last 15 years we have helped to rehabilitate over 4800 dogs. All dogs were 80-90% improved in 2-4 days.

Traditional Dog Trainers go through their entire careers by implementing Human Psychology. A Dog Psychology & Modification Expert will have a detailed understanding of Dog Psychology, Animal Theory & Canine Language.

Equally, we are highly-skilled at educating the owners. You work side-by-side with your dog and us so that when we step out of the equation, you have a complete understanding of why your dog is exhibiting negative behaviours and the strategies on how to resolve them. More importantly, we provide you with an approach on how to prevent those negative behaviours in the future.
