Full refunds will be issued if cancelled no later than one week prior to the course start date. Cancellations made less than one week prior to the course start date will receive a 50% refund.

Private Training Session

Private training sessions are designed to work one-on-one on any behavioural issue(s) you are experiencing with your dog.

If you have concerns about ANY of your dog’s behaviours, please reach out sooner rather than later.

The first consultation/session MUST be held at the client’s home. Plan for your first session to be about an hour-and-a-half.

If you are interested in scheduling a session, please e-mail us at with the subject line “private training” or call Leanne at (807) 276-5466.

$120 per hour
All prices are subject to HST.

Travel outside the 25km radius of The Spry Farm will be billed out at 0.59/km. The 25km radius covers the area between Coochiching First Nation (east) and Barwick (west).
Eg. Round-trip mileage to Rainy River, $53; to Mine Centre, $77, just to give you an idea.

Board & Train

We accept board & train clients on a case-by-case basis. We only work with dogs 6 months of age and older (for the first six months of your pup’s life, they should really be in YOUR home, learning routine, structure, rules, and boundaries. If you would like an introductory “bringing puppy home” session, I would be happy to book something).

Board & train clients will reside in our boarding facility (Fall 2021), and be worked with every day. Whether we are working on specific behavioural challenges or just going into general “boot camp” mode, your dog will learn new skills to achieve a more structured, balanced, and peaceful life.

Upon returning home, you will be given the tools and instruction on how to follow through with what your dog learned during it’s stay with us. 

If you are interested in registering for this service, please e-mail us at with the subject line “board and train”. We will add you to our e-mail list and send details to you directly.

$1,200 per week
All prices are subject to HST.

Payment, for the first week, must be made prior to drop-off.

We just had our boys’ birthday party at the Spry Farm and have nothing but great things to say about our experience. They had a beautiful shady spot all set up for us and everyone loved seeing all the animals. We would definitely book another party with them 😊
