2019 Spring Training at Wag U

2019 Spring Training at Wag U

Here at Wag Central we set pups of all ages up to succeed!

When playmates and learning mates are of similar stature, instructors and owners can best tackle all things puppy. Using our carefully structured Wag Central model with lots of flavor from the Wag Personality Profile, as well as keeping classes small with a positive swing, our instructors can engage both pups and their owners to begin living life together, hand in paw.

Manners and Leash Skills

Does your dog lunge at other dogs? Not sit nicely at the door and wait for it to be opened? Does your dog bark when the doorbell rings or when a stranger enters your house? Does your dog jump up on people? Then it sounds like our manners class might be perfect for you and your pup. And let’s add good leash skills to the mix since a well socialized pup needs to walk nicely on leash for many reasons, yet so many of our pups pull, jump, and react when a walk with your pup should be pleasurable. This class covers the multiple types of leashes and collars on the market, basic commands, tips, and strategies to shape your pup into a good walking and social companion. And due to Wag Central’s unique layout, real life can be simulated within our walls and outdoor spaces.
