Training / Seminars


A major component to enjoying a happy and healthy life with your canine companion is to ensure that you have a well behaved and well balanced dog. This does not happen by allowing the dog to have absolute freedom to rule the roost. It happens by ensuring a stable environment and consistency with regards to your expectations of your furry friend’s acceptable behaviour.

You can start your search for a good trainer by visiting our Associates page.

Once your dog has some basic obedience, it opens the doors to their ability to participate in group activities and sports. In addition to providing a means for exercise and mental stimulation, it is also an excellent opportunity for you to bond with your dog. Fun ways of enhancing the human-canine relationship best describes the theme of the courses we offer at Keshet Kennels. Refer to Course Descriptions below.

For dogs that board with us for a minimum stay of 3 nights or more, Life Skill Training sessions are also available.

Ongoing & Upcoming course offerings will always be posted on our Events page.


Periodically, Keshet hosts informative and educational seminars on issues relevant to canine welfare.

Keshet is committed to sharing information of interest to the canine community.
