Our Story

Packlife Dog Retreat began as a simple dream of wanting to help as many dogs and their people as possible. With nearly 7 years of dog training experience between us, we are committed to changing the lives of all the dogs and people we are lucky enough to work with. Each having two dogs of our own, we know that owning a pet is an amazing and rewarding experience, but also a responsibility, not a luxury. Training your dog properly will lead you to a greater understanding of not only them as an animal, but of yourself as well. We firmly believe in the owner-pet relationship being one of mutual understanding and respect, and we will work with you to build this relationship with your dog. We will train you to speak dog, rather than trying to convince your dog to speak human!

Group classes are here!

Our next Basic Behavioural Group Class begins on Tuesday February 6th at 7pm! This extensive course is designed to help dogs and their humans better understand dog psychology, achieve a loose leash walk, learn the 'place' command, and much more! This course is $600+tax, and will be hosted at our Kitchener location.

For more information on what is included in the course cost, as well as the course outline, head over to our training page. There you will also find our Group Class Schedule for the rest of 2024, which will allow you to pick a date that will work best for you and your family. If you would like to register for the course starting in February, or any others scheduled this year, please contact us ASAP - space is limited!

Raw Performance and Adored Beast Apothecary are here!

We believe in not only nurturing a dog's mental health, but their physical health as well. That is why we are so incredibly proud to be retailers for both Raw Performance and Adored Beast Apothecary. The majority of our staff use both of these brands to maintain the health of our own pups, and we cannot wait to share them with all of you! If you have any questions regarding either of these brands, how our retail services work, or about raw feeding in general, please contact us so we can assist you!
