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 following are Dogue Shop's services:
- Animal-Assisted Therapy program
- Animal Behaviour Apprenticeship program levels 1 to 3
- Dogue's Blog
- Dog Parkour outside classes
- Doga inside classes
- Private Dog Training sessions
- Puppy and Teen group classes outside classes (depending on weather)
- Seminars, conferences, and workshops
- YouTube channel
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 update and adapt 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 need more space. Therefore, the Dogue Academy pages you can no longer find here are now hosted on the new website. Take a minute to check it out and tell us what you think.

WHY IS OUR COMPANY COLOUR BRIGHT PINK
I concede pink is not everyone's favourite colour; however, the colour pink generates compassion, serenity, sophistication, and sweetness in one's emotional mind.
The Dogue Shop and Dogue Academy strive to bring understanding and peace of mind with the help of science. The motto Doing things Dogue style! We place emphasis on creating a solid bond between you and your animal, regardless of the species.
For me, bright pink represents the sweet taste of a loving relationship. Consequently, you can expect us to be professional, yet, we will laugh and cry with you along the way.
The creatures that come into our lives do so with unconditional love; we believe in returning the sentiment.
In that sense, my work is, simply put, delicious!

You can still spot me on YouTube now and then, but I will contribute content to our channel's Membership portion.
