Patience Understanding Trust

Welcome to Absolutely Stirling Dog Training, we are Peter and Lorina Luhoff with over 60 years combined dog training and daily dog working experience.

We are located 16 kms south of Stirling, in rural southern Alberta so we can offer your dog hundreds of acres in which to learn, grow, and develop. We believe in the "Ray Hunt" theory of training "make the right things easy and the wrong things difficult".

We use time honored and innovative methods, proven over decades of time working with dogs. We offer obedience, manners and behavior modification, along with proper pack behavior, so your dog can enjoy time with other dogs. This way of working with dogs comes from years of using dogs in a working environment.

We believe in ample exercise, pack therapy, and positive reinforcement. We accept a very limited number of dogs so your dog receives the time and attention it requires to become a happy, well behaved family member.

Like a whole new calm dog!

Monika Ready I was referred to Absolutely Stirling by a friend and Peter and Lorina exceeded my expectations! My anxious ridgeback is like a whole new calm dog! I have been able to leave him alone in situations that I would never have been able to before and he is quietly content and relaxed. I am so excited to be carrying his training back into my home and he has been doing extremely well. I've learned a lot as well and I never imagined that 4 weeks would bring about such a positive amazing change! Thanks to both of you!

Worth every penny

Zoey Peter and Lorina are worth every penny!!! They transformed my dog Zoey into a brand new dog! We are still working on skills everyday at home but so far we have been able to take Zoey everywhere, Life changing! It is awful to have a bad mannered dog it really interrupts the flow the the family. Thank you so much absolutely Stirling Dog Training :)
