instructors teach you how to communicate effectively and without force. Group classes or private sessions are done in a learning environment that sets your dog up to succeed and helps your dog learn through positive motivation. Wag & Train has been helping dogs and cats since 1992, and we are recommended all over the Western Slope.
Wag & Train and Victoria Stilwell Positively believe that it is vitally important for owners to give their dogs the opportunities and the tools they need to live successfully in a human world. A dog that is given consistent guidance from an early age grows up to be a confident dog. Education brings security, security brings confidence, and a confident dog has no need to show anxiety-based behaviors.
Because of our commitment to positive methods, and understanding of the importance of lifelong education, Wag & Train is the only facility in Colorado chosen by Victoria Stilwell herself to ensure you are getting the best in science-based, dog-friendly training. Our methods are like those used on her show, “It’s Me or the Dog”, and we are very proud to say we don’t use or condone shock, choke, or prong collars. Kari Bastyr, MS, CDBC, owner of Wag & Train, has a Masters Degree in Animal Behavior and has worked professionally with animals since 1992.

Puppy Potty Training Board & Train is Back!
Training your puppy to use the bathroom outside, not chew on your yoga pants, have a gentle mouth, and walk nicely on a leash can be challenging. It also needs to begin as early as possible so bad habits don’t develop. So, let us do it for you! Kari Bastyr LOVES to potty train puppies, and will board your puppy in her home to work on potty training, bite inhibition, and manners. It is a great way to get things started so you can take over when your puppy comes home. Training must be continued at home in order for the behaviors to be retained, and a written behavior plan will be provided for you. A one-on-one session with you and your puppy at the end is included. Find Out More Information Here
