Science Based Animal Training Centre and Animal Behaviour School
The Dogue Shop training centre was founded in 1999. Gaby Dufresne-Cyr opened the science-based animal behaviour and training school in which she trains animals, pet owners, future dog trainers, animal behaviour consultants, and animal-assisted therapists. Furthermore, Gaby is an international speaker with many years of experience in radio and television. You can visit the Speaker Events page to learn more about Gaby's presentations.
Gaby used to teach animal behaviour and training at La Pocatière college; therefore, classes offered at the Dogue Shop are college level and up to date with scientific discoveries. All programs found on this website were specifically designed to educate, amuse, challenge and enrich pet owners, students, and animals alike. Dogue Shop is a recognized school by Revenue Quebec and Employment and Social Development Canada which means you can deduct course fees on your income tax report.
Dogue Shop services are bilingual; however, Gaby decided to tailor her service to the English community desperate for a positive approach to dog training. If you have a language preference, don't worry, Gaby can speak French as well as English, plus, she's currently working on improving her Spanish.

More recently, Gaby has published her book Dog in the Mirror is God; A Scientifically Spiritual Approach to Treating Human and Animal Behaviour Problems. You can visit the publishing page for more details and where to buy the book. If anything, it is an outside the box self-help manuscript designed to further your growth as a human and as a pet caregiver. The book is now available on Amazon. Gaby is working out paper and hardcover issues, so stay tuned, they should be released soon.

At the Dogue Shop training centre, our objectives are to promote the human-animal bond and to establish and maintain a healthy physical and mental relationship between people and animals. All our seminars, workshops, conferences, and puppy group classes are science-based which means we do not choke, kick, poke, prod, or use tools such as choke, citronella, electric, prong, or e-collars.
Finally, the Dogue Shop training centre likes to set precedents in the industry. We do this by constantly thinking outside the box. Our staff has been working on canine cognitive development, AKA Brain Games, for the last ten years and have implemented fun activities such as Doga and Parkour. We have instituted many social programs, and strive to build a network of like-minded professionals to share information and referrals. We will always serve you as best we can, and should we be unable to do so, we will help guide you in the right direction; after all, Gaby is a networking guru.
Our Mission 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 objectives are to promote the human-animal bond and to establish and maintain a healthy physical, mental and emotional relationship with your pet. At the Dogue Shop, the saying goes "We do things differently because we do them Dogue Style." Gaby likes to say "If science has taught us anything, it's to think outside the box, and that's something I strive to achieve each and every single day."
Our services build positive relationships between people and their animals in order to prevent or intervene in existing behaviour problems. The Dogue Shop's approach is to balance or rebalance your pet's cognitive and emotional abilities so you can better live with one another. We reach these goals through positive training techniques and relationship building activities. Dogue Shop takes dog training and teaching animal behaviour to a whole new level. On a final note, the Dogue Shop training centre is NOT a veterinarian, shelter, or rescue organization. We do not take dogs in or help people give them away. You can find us at the following address:
