Do you and your dog need training?

We train people, too!

We use only positive, lure reward-based methods, visual cues, and body language to teach you how to communicate effectively with your dog and train without force. We do not use or condone choke chains, prong collars, or shock devices.  Whether you need help at home with an anxious, aggressive, or fearful dog, or you are looking for puppy classes, look no further.

Wag & Train’s owner and creator, Kari Bastyr, MS, CDBC, VSPDT, has a Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree in Animal Behavior and is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. We are also a part of the “Positively” dog training network created by Victoria Stilwell from ‘It’s Me or the Dog” on Animal Planet. We are licensed and endorsed by her because of our commitment to using only positive training methods!

“You are so skilled and uniquely experienced!  I’d been to many other trainers over the years, and a couple with these dogs (not to mention the behavior vet). For me and my dogs, you provided unique and extremely helpful insights into the etiology of their behaviors, and got us on a track towards a safe and happy household!  You gave me hope for their futures at a time when I was not sure what was ahead for them.  Both the behavior modification and practical household management, as well as what to observe, helped tremendously. Thank you, Jenifer H.”
