Bad Dogs Wanted:

Do you think you have a bad dog? Actually, at Wag & Train, we don’t think there are any bad dogs.

But, it’s common (and normal!) to get frustrated, sad, desperate, and mad when your dog is behaving badly. Is your dog a selective listener? Does your dog take you for a walk? Is barking your dog’s favorite hobby? Is your dog aggressive with people or other dogs? Let us help. Together, we can get their tails waggin’!
Are you in Minneapolis or Denver?

  • 5 star review  We took our rescue, Wrigley, for training 4 years ago. We’ve since moved to Chicago but still sing the praises of the amazing job Wag & Train did. Wrigley had severe anxiety when left alone and had a ton of energy. Now he’s overcome his fears and is constantly getting complimented on how well behaved he is! If you are local and considering Wag & Train, I cannot express the investment you’ll be making in your pup!

  • 5 star review  I LOVE Wag & Train and Kari and her crew! Kari has trained for Safe Harbor Lab Rescue for many years, and has literally saved the lives of some of our rescued dogs who came to us with behavioral problems stemming from past poor training methods or just plain neglect. Each dog she works with is treated as an individual and her positive training methods have without exception yielded wonderful results and very happy Labs and adopters!

  • 5 star review  Kari was incredible! She focused not only on my dog's training, but my own. I definitely understand my dog so much more. My dog and I have come such a long way thanks to Kari!

  • 5 star review  I have worked with Kari for at least 13 years! I have gone through her obedience classes personally and worked with her professionally through the giant breed rescue I run! She has been a tremendous asset to the organization, helping us with some very challenging behavioral cases to make the dogs more adoptable. She uses positive reinforcement training methods and is highly effective. I highly recommend Wag & Train!

  • 5 star review  I have worked with Kari with my dogs and recently put my new puppy in the board and train while we were on vacation. My poor puppy had girardia and Kari made sure she took really good care of her and even went out of her way to get her extra meds. Never one complaint with the extra work, only lots of pictures and praise! Love her!

  • 5 star review  Kari's kind and patient approach to training has made a huge difference in our house! Our shelter pup came with some behavior challenges that were exacerbated by a negative training experience. We're so thankful for Kari's academic behavior expertise, practical experience, and compassionate and positive training methods. And she communicates well with people (not just dogs!) providing us with the tools and support we need to continue to learn together.

  • positive review  Judy Borsheim is amazing! She was willing to be flexible with our schedule and came right to our home to see the issues where they happen, and tailored the training to our unique needs. she was also so supportive when our dachshund Stormaggedon started having back pain again. she truly cares about our dog, and I 100% trust her advice and council. so glad to have a friend who I can turn to on this journey toward giving our dog his best life 😊

  • 5 star review  I took my French Bulldog puppy Carson to positive puppy 1 class with Kari. I started him at 10 weeks and 4lbs to socialize him and Kari was so awsome with him. He was always the littlest one in the class but she helped him not get trampled in the play. I am so happy I chose Wag and Train for the little love in my life. I couldn't say enough about what a positive experience we are having.
