WOOFS & WAGS Pet Dog Training was first established in 2000. In 2001 I was awarded my Certificate IV in Dog Behavioural Training (Canine Good Citizen TM).
My aim is to provide training that is effective and fun, using gentle reward based methods so that dogs and owners alike can enjoy learning together. Children are also welcome to train their dog in class if they are old enough and able to do so. I specialise in early and ongoing socialisation and training for puppies and young dogs, to ensure your puppy grows up to be happy, relaxed and well behaved in a variety of situations both at home and when out and about. Classes are therefore specifically targeted at this age group.
There are classes at different levels to ensure your puppy can expand on their training, maintain their social skills, provide mental stimulation and help avoid or address any issues you may be experiencing before they become a real problem.
The training methods I teach in class are the same as the ones I use with my own dogs, so I have plenty of experience training all the way up to competition level. With Skye, Comet and Jaffa, we compete in several dog sports, Agility being our main "thing" but also Rally Obedience, Dances with Dogs, Obedience and Tricks. Skye has gained 13 titles, Comet 15 and Jaffa 5 across these sports.
I look forward to helping you with your puppy's trainining.
