Science-Based Dog Training Center
Dogue Shop is a science-based animal training centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Dogue Shop training centre was founded in 1999 by Gaby Dufresne-Cyr. In 2010, Gaby acquired a brick-and-mortar school and opened the only English-speaking science-based dog training school, the Dogue Shop.

The Dogue Shop’s mission is to educate, through science-based learning theories, enrichment, behavioural management, and behaviour modification, animals and the people who care for them. Our goals are to promote the human-animal bond and to establish secure attachments with animals. At the Dogue Shop, the saying goes "We do things Dogue Style."
The Dogue Shop likes to set precedents in the industry; consequently, we are updating and adapting our services. We do this by constantly thinking outside the box. Our staff has been working on developing canine social-cognitive animal training (SCAT) for the last fifteen years, and we use it all the time. You can check out our YouTube channel to see how I (Gaby) train animals without using lures, ever!
The Dogue Academy is still part of the Dogue Shop family, however, we are growing and needed more space. Therefore, the Dogue Academy pages you can no longer find here are now hosted on the new website. Take a minute to go check it out and tell us what you think.
