We believe in treating animals with respect. We use positive reinforcement training techniques, specifically Clicker Training. Our trainers are constantly working on upgrading their skills, and we will always do our best to provide quality training for a reasonable price.
Leanne Good, Founder and Lead Trainer, has been studying about dog training for 19 years. Through her work with Service Dog training over the past five years, Leanne found there has been great success in using Clicker Training. She noticed that the dogs going through clicker training were learning faster and retaining what they learned. Due to this success and her studies of Dr. Ian Dunbar, Dr. Sophia Yin, Karen Pryor, Kathy Sdao, Michele Pouliot, Ken Ramirez and others, WOW! DOG Training was started and will only use positive reinforcement methods of training. If you're looking for choke chains, prong collars or shock collars, or any other method that uses pain or intimidation, this is not the place for you.
Welcome to our site!
Can your puppy learn at a young age? YES
Should you wait until they're at least 6 months old? NO
Young pups are like a sponge. Between 3 and 16 weeks is the window to expose your pup to as many different things as you can. This period is called the "socialization" period.
This is the best time to catch problems before they start, or at the very least early. Give your dog the best start possible. Click the link below.
Does your dog pull on the leash? Does it jump up on people? Does it run fast in the opposite direction and play "catch me if you can" when you call it?
Our Dog Manners 101-Foundation program will address these issues and many more. Check it out below.
Do you feel that a private consult would suit you best, for scheduling reasons, or you have a very timid dog, or just aren't sure where to start?
We do private consultations, either in your home, or at our location. We can customize a curriculum to meet your needs.
