Online Training Classes

In light of the current Covid-19 outbreak (Corona Virus) and myself suffering medical conditions that put me at higher risk, Wagging Wonders is currently unable to offer in person training. This will be continually reassessed and updated. (May 29th)

Wagging Wonders is offering online alternatives though!

Wagging Wonders is offering 121 consults and classes using the Zoom platform. This is easy to use, and enables us to work together online, just like we would face to face! Due to this being a difficult time for everyone, we have significantly reduced the prices for 121 online consults.

The information here is for Online Classes, for consults or puppy training please see those pages.
