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 Behaviour Apprenticeship program levels 1 to 3
- Dog Day Training
- 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
Gaby published her book Dog in the Mirror is God; A Scientifically Spiritual Approach to Treating Human and Animal Behaviour Problems in 2019.
The animal-assisted therapy book should be released in 2023. More books are coming, so be sure to return to our Dogue Shop Publishing page.
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. We aim to promote the human-animal bond and 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 train animals without using lures ever!
Our Day Training program reflects the level of learning we believe all dogs should possess. From socialization to advanced training, your puppy will have a fantastic skillset to equip pet caregivers during the dog’s adolescent phase. Another knowledge-based difference between the Dogue Shop and other establishments is our use of multiple learning theories to train animals.
The Dogue Academy is 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.

DOG DAY TRAINING
Our favourite program is back.
After nearly three years of pandemic, we believe it is time to help puppies again.
This is not a daycare service; the schedule is not flexible or accommodating for specific days or times you need dog sitting.
This program strives to prevent behaviour problems in the future; think of it as an investment in your dog's behaviour and quality of life with a pet.
The puppy day training is a fixed two months of weekly dog training.
Drop your dog off in the morning and pick it up before dinner. Our job is to teach your puppy to be the best adult dog it can become.
Places are limited to two puppies at once.
Follow the link for more details.
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!
