We take into consideration your dog's natural abilities, as well as your own aptitudes. We do our best to accommodate your unique situation, including lifestyleand physical constraints.


We want to create a training plan that works for your dog and for you!


Come Over Rover Training - A Personalized Approach


The COR Training Philosophy


COR trainer Tara uses a practical approach to behaviour modification and training that centers on helping you build and maintain a healthy relationship with your dog.

Tara believes that confident, calm dogs are not only the happiest dogs, but also the most willing training participants.  Because of this strong belief her customized training plans focus heavily on promoting clear communication and building a positive bond between human and dog. Laying these excellent foundations is top priority for living in harmony with your Rover and reaching your training goals.


Rather than treating symptoms, her methods work to address and overcome underlying causes, such as fear, lack of focus, and communication breakdowns. She'll help you motivate your dog into a confident and cooperative family member!


The Training Process

  • You will be asked to complete an online, in-depth form that goes over your Rover's history, his day-to-day life, and the training goals you'd like to reach.


  • Your trainer will review your forms and set up your Training Phone Consult to gather further information and clarification.


  • Next comes your 2-hour Initial Training Session. While the structure of each first session will be selected to best suit your needs, we generally meet in your home. This session is used to gather real-life information, as well as begin to establish trust and comfort with your dog, as well as you! Your session will be followed up with an email summary of the session, including detailed instructions and information.

  • Your trainer will contact you after a short amount of time to discuss how you'd like to move forward, review your progress, and answer any questions you may have.

  • Subsequent training sessions may take place in your home, at the daycare or out in public and generally last one to two hours.  In certain circumstances your trainer may ask that other people and pets from your household attend. Your trainer may also find it beneficial to interact one on one with your dog. Short-term Board & Trains of one night or more may also be suggested, as well as a series of daycare sessions, or others types of exercises, such as a group walks or supervised play dates.


Each training session will wrap up with clearly defined homework and a review of your goals and progress.

It's important to us that you feel comfortable, confident and positive about your training experience and we welcome questions and feedback at any time.

Your trainer will always be available by email or by a scheduled phone call for questions and support during your training process and up to one month after your last session.

We like to see our clients succeed!

Our goal is always to help you help your dog in the most efficient, effect and economical way possible!
