Pup Scouts is a fun way to learn and practice new skills!

Collect achievement badges in your Pup Scouts Passport as you and your best friend have fun learning and practicing new skills, playing games, and socializing with other dogs and owners!

Pup Scouts is an opportunity to work on obedience skills and socialization with other dogs and people in a fun, low pressure environment.

Collect badges as you master skills like ‘stay’ ‘target’ and ‘go to your mat’… you could even become the Ottawa Valley Musical Chairs Champion!

Using positive reinforcement techniques, Pup Scouts is all about having positive experiences and building happy relationships between dogs and their owners.

This is a very low pressure way to practice obedience in an environment with distractions. Excellent for people who are:


Socializing their dog to new people or situations


Looking for fun, low-impact, indoor activities to do with their dog


Looking to build their dog's confidence


Working their way towards a Canine Good Neighbour Certificate
