TRAINING

We have many different training options to suit your needs. Donia believes strongly in positive training methods and that training should be fun for both the dog and their human! She will help you set and achieve attainable goals for your pets behaviour whether it be walking politely down the street or entering the competition ring. Let us help you decide which training program suits your needs.

WHiskers and Wags Board & TrainPuppy Prep

Puppy Prep is a private lesson program designed to raise social, confident, well mannered puppies.

We will teach the puppies how to settle in a new environment, the foundations of walking politely on leash, the foundations of coming when called, learn basic manners, accept handling, as well as healthy exposure to new things (people, noises, dogs). We will also discuss common puppy behaviours such as nipping, house soiling, jumping up etc.
