The most complete training school in Quebec

It was founded in 1970 by the parents of Frédéric Labbé (Paul and Pauline), who were dog handlers and groomers respectively. Frédéric’s parents had already accumulated a few years of experience watching their fathers at work, who was themselves Dog Handlers in the Canadian Armed Forces for mine clearance and animal husbandry. In 1967, Paul and Pauline began breeding Chow-chows. From 1969 to 1970, a stay in the United States and courses in shearing and grooming will allow them to follow a complete and vigorous training. Upon their return, they decide to realize their dream and found a complete house of education. They begin with a guard and protection dog school by educating large breed dogs.

Since 1984, the clientele has evolved. There are a lot fewer protection classes but a lot more obedience classes given the increase in the number of small dogs who also need training. We need to teach cleanliness, more canine psychology, help control behavioral issues, teach family obedience, fantasy and agility.

These courses now count 100% of the dedication of our Training School.

It is this path that allowed Frédéric to be received Professional Dog Handler Diploma by André Lamarche and Huguette Pinard on May 2, 1992 and to fully understand the bond that is established between the handler and his dog and thus develop the he approach that makes the success of La Brigade Canine inc.

Our company offers comprehensive and constantly updated training to meet the requirements of the constantly evolving field. Taught by dedicated, dynamic staff with many years of experience. Our school offers flexible hours (Day, Evening, Saturday) and classes with reduced numbers. This allows us to give a personalized and human service to all our students.

The pedagogical approach is focused on the accomplishment of practical activity that reflects the labor market. We will teach you pride, dedication, discipline, all in a respectful atmosphere. But above all made with love and respect for the animal. Our modules start at 150 hours up to a maximum of 3000 hours.
