Training Classes Available at TailWaggers Pet Chateau!

TailWaggers believes that dogs are happiest when they know where they fit into their human-pack. Agility jumpsEven if your dog is never bound for the competition ring, you and your dog will both enjoy a more fruitful relationship you can establish through training courses.

A lot of dogs need to have a job in which they can engage their minds and bodies. Keeping them productively engaged will help prevent a lot of destructive behavior from frustrated or bored dogs in your home.

TailWaggers currently offers training in Agility, Obedience, and Puppy Agility tireDevelopment classes. We are happy to give referrals to trainers for other venues that we do not offer here, such as tracking, herding, protection sports & lure coursing.

Our classes are for basic beginners as well as more advanced trainers. If you’ve never owned or trained a dog or if you have competed with your dog, our classes can help you fulfill your dreams.

Our philosophy is to develop a working partnership between you and your dog based on mutual trust and respect, not fear. We want to see happy willing partners working together for a common goAgility tunnelal. We are familiar with clicker training, food rewards, and training in drive. We use methods that will work for the individual dog, not a cookie cutter class where everyone must train the same way and in the same time frame. We will bring in additional instructors and go on field trips if that is needed to accomplish the goals of our students and classes.
