What type of training classes do you offer?
Wagging Tails Pet Resort offers a variety of training programs to meet your dog at their training level. We recommend starting puppies when they are young with socialization and develop a good foundation of manners.
Then our training curriculum progresses through foundation training and skill-building, to developing additional behaviors and increased concentration and focus. All of our training programs focus on rewarding good behaviors and positive reinforcement.
The Obedience Academy at Wagging Tails Pet Resort offers:
- Puppy Training Programs
- Obedience Training Programs
- Group Classes
- Individualized Training
- Situational Training
My dog is shy and fearful, can your training help my dog?
Yes, we start by developing and nurturing a trustful relationship with your dog, our trainers and you. We show him that there is nothing to fear. By developing his confidence, we can start to reinforce his positive behaviors. Through this caring reinforcement and repetition, his confidence will grow and fear will diminish. Our approach of clear, non-confrontational obedience training and positive repetitive reinforcement is the best way to help dogs gain skills, manners and confidence.
Is my dog too old to train?
Absolutely not – old dogs can learn new tricks! Sometimes, mature dogs are easier to train because they have less energy than they were as a puppy and have better attention to focus. We use positive reinforcement and repetition to teach your dog the appropriate manners and behaviors. Your dog will gain confidence and joy while building their skills.
