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  Wag and Train is wonderful! We started working with Kari nearly 10 years ago and have been fans ever since. Our dogs have benefitted from Wag and Train's positive, gentle and intelligent approach to behavior modification and training. Our dog Xander, who came to us as a puppy with anxiety and socialization issues, blossomed once we went through classes with Kari. We are very involved in animal welfare and rescue, and love how Kari is just as passionate about it! We are grateful for all she does for our community. FIVE STARS! (y)

  • 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  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  Wag & Train was great for our dogs, and we especially like that the techniques are all positive- we didn't want to choke or shock our dogs to get them to behave. I highly recommend Wag & Train! Sean

  • 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  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  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.
