You deserve a well-trained dog. A faithful companion you can take to a park, the beach, a friend’s home; just about anywhere permitted by the law.
Our programmes will help you own the best trained dog in the neighbourhood!
We offer a variety of opportunities for training that fit our clients’ lifestyles and we can help you determine which is best for you and your dog. Whether you prefer In-Kennel, In-Home, Private Lessons or have a specific training need – we have a programme for you.
At Wagworks, your dog’s safety, well-being and overall happiness is our top priority. Your dog is a member of your family and we look forward to welcoming your dog to ours!
Dogs are relinquished to shelters, given away or just left behind by owners more frequently that we care to admit these days. Most of those dogs are euthanized when caught eventually, or they die a gruesome death on the road. Essential, simple obedience exercises such as sit, down, to come when called, boundary training, not pulling on the leash or lunging and rehabilitation of any behaviour problems (especially harmful ones); will help in keeping dogs happy in the home where they belong. Persistent behavioural issues can be modified when addressed effectively at an early stage, while problems that were left unattended for longer periods, can still be rectified with the appropriate training methods and tools.
Programmes for Owners
Training doesn’t stop with the dogs. The ability to control your dog better comes from understanding the basic behaviour and to have a balanced relationship. Avoiding a power struggle in some cases by projecting the right authority, awareness and stability towards your dog will HELP you develop the kind of relationship that will be most beneficial to you.
Dogs need and seek the presence of authority in the relationship with their owners.
Our programmes for dog owners will help you take charge and solidify your relationship with your furkid.
