TRAINING TECHNIQUES AT WAGGING WONDERS
Wagging Wonders uses modern training techniques. Meaning that while we will directly tackle and address the issues your dog is having, we will also help your dog learn key concepts as well as looking at the wider picture of your dogs behaviour.
For example a dog who pulls on the lead.
Zara will work with you and your dog loose lead walking skills. We will also teach your dog skills of self-control, disengagement, and thinking when excited. These skills will help reduce your dog's pulling on lead also.
Along with this looking at your dogs breed, opportunities for outlets for behaviours and how we can make life more enjoyable for both you and your dog to help achieve meaningful behaviour change.
