Science-Based Dog Training Center
The Dogue Shop is an English science-based dog training centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was founded in 1999 by Gaby Dufresne-Cyr. Our mission is to educate, through science-based learning theories, enrichment, behavioural management, and behaviour modification, animals and the people who care for them.
We aim to promote the human-animal bond and establish secure attachments with dogs. At the Dogue Shop, the saying goes, “We do things Dogue Style.” Another knowledge-based difference between the Dogue Shop and other establishments is our use of multiple learning theories to train animals.

DOG TRAINING GROUP CLASSES IN THE PARK
This year, my assistant Henri Lamarche and ABA Alumni Emily Paquette will teach group classes in Confederation Park, Notre-Dame-de-Grace (NDG), Montreal
Puppies must be between 7 and 12 weeks and teen dogs aged between 5 months to 1 year can register for our classes. Dogs older than one year must take private classes.
Check out our Group Classes page for more information.
We normally begin the season in April, but the official date depends on Mother Nature's cooperation. We'll post the date on social media and this website, so be sure to follow the Dogue Shop - Dogue Academy on Instagram, X (formally Twitter), or YouTube.
To register, drop us an e-mail, and we'll gladly send you the paperwork.
Classes are payable in advance.
WHY IS OUR COMPANY COLOUR BRIGHT PINK
"I concede pink is not everyone's favourite colour; however, this tint of red generates compassion, serenity, sophistication, and sweetness in one's emotional mind. It's everything I aspire my company to be." - Gaby.
The Dogue Shop and Dogue Academy strive to bring understanding and peace of mind through science. Our motto is “Doing things Dogue style!” We emphasize the creation of a solid bond between you and your animal, regardless of species.
For Gaby, 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!” - Gaby.
