bad dog wanted

BAD DOGS WANTED:

Do you think you have a bad dog?
Actually, I believe dogs don’t behave badly. I believe they are having a hard time.

But, it’s common (and normal!) to get frustrated, sad, desperate, and mad when your dog’s behavior is out of control. 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 me help.

  • 5 star review  I met Kari about 9 years ago when I was searching for help with my Siberian Husky puppy. Turns out she specialized in Huskies because she owned one! I had tried other trainers and methods... Kari was the only one who not only taught me a positive and effective way to get through to my dog but she also taught me how to better care for him overall... Tips I had no idea were so important. She is a plethora of doggie information and always takes time to answer questions for me even though I am not currently a client. I am forever grateful for her patience and love for dogs... It changed my Miles forever and ultimately helped me to make him a certified therapy dog. She has all the tools anyone needs to help them make massive changes... In a positive way... With your dog. It's not an overnight fix... Though things will change immediately... It is a daily lifetime change that will forever impact the way you understand and communicate with your best friend. Love Kari Bastyr!!!

  • 5 star review  Kari is simply amazing. She understands how dogs think, and is spot-on with the science of animal behavior. As if that wasn't enough, Kari is an exceptional person who has the gift of helping owners understand their canine charges and how to best meet their needs. Following the approach supported by veterinary behavior and animal behavior science, her approach is free of intimidation, bullying, and fear- making the dogs and people she helps learn in a gentle and stress-free environment. People, this works! I am truly honored to call her a colleague and friend. My respect for her as a professional and person couldn't be higher.

  • 5 star review  I completely credit Kari and Wag &Train with the fact that i can not only take my dog out in public, but also get compliments on her good-girl skills! Kari basically saved my life when my dog started exhibiting fear-based reactivity. Though she worked with us about 4 years ago, I still use the skills and tricks I learned in Level 1& 2 manners and private training sessions every single day. If you want to bond with your puppy/new dog, learn some basic dog-handling skills, and get into their little fuzzy minds, call Kari!

  • 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.

  • 5 star review  We tried bringing our Bordeaux, Otis, to another trainer with absolutely no success. Kari had been recommended to me by multiple people so I finally called her. And I'll never bring a dog to anyone else. We needed more than a trainer. We needed a behaviorist. She helped us curb Otis' dog aggression as well as taught us ways to divert his attention before his aggression is ever triggered. I just wish we had brought Otis to Wag & Train sooner. Thank you Kari. Any dog I get from here on out will be trained by Wag & Train.

  • 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  Kari is amazing! Right on with ANY behavioral issues we encounter. I Highly recommend!! I Iearned more in our first session with Kari than in 25 years of corporate and private training. As a seasoned dog owner and groomer i am asshamed of all prior training. Kari addresses the items necessary for a happy home, not the general sit-stay. I am a proud owner of a very well behaved bully! I'd give her 100 gold stars if the rating would let me.

  • 5 star review  Kari is amazing. She has a gift with animal behavior and can help you through every step (including selection... who knew there was a temperament test for that?). From puppy class through agility and behavior, she's got you covered. Kari will give you the tools to make you relationship with your animal successful.

  • 5 star review  Wag & Train was the best thing we did for our dog! Kari taught us how too communicate correctly with our dog through the "positive training" method and we could not be happier seeing our dogs behavior completely change. I would highly recommend them for training or rehabilitating your dog!

  • 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.
