Training and Development

We challenge each other daily to learn, grow, inspire and be passionate!

Pups4Fun is a leader in team development, providing both online and on the job training.  

Our employees go through a comprehensive online and in person induction process, which is followed with weeks of hands on training and competency modules.

The training doesn’t end there though, we offer monthly training sessions on various topics to give our team a holistic understanding of dogs, and what more we can offer the community.  Some of our sessions have included Canine Nutrition by Chefs & Dogs, Canine Fitness and Conditioning with Dogs and Deadlifts and Puppy Development by Four Paws K9 Training.
