Wag & Win Dog Training Classes

Like humans, dogs have many aspects to their personalities. These traits — like optimism, confidence, and many others — can be developed and shaped over time through concept training.

If we concentrate on playing games that reward the behaviors we desire, we can help to shape our dog’s personalities, thus changing the choices they are likely to make in everyday behavior.

Recall, loose leash walking, accepting novelty — we can encourage and develop all these while having fun with our dogs!

Does your Puppy Have Game?

Give your puppy a great start by safely exploring different surfaces, learning confidence games, and learning to work with you around distractions. Includes teaching basic behaviors such as sit, down, stay, and leave it. We’ll also cover solutions to struggles common with puppies. Please leave your dog at home for the first class so we can cover some important foundational information.
