Dogs want structure, guidance and to please us. 

They just need us to be clear and communicate consistently

Let's do it!

TRAINING METHODS

CoolWag uses Positive Reinforcement training on puppies and pet dogs that need to learn manners. The foundation of our training programs is modeled around Ian Dunbar, legendary veterinarian, animal behaviorist and dog trainer. Our end goal is for your dog to look to you for guidance on everything, be socialized so that they are comfortable and confidently with the world they live in (people, dogs, noise, etc.). This will enable you to walk your dog in the park or the Downtown Square with hundreds of people. For behavior modification or super stubborn pups, our trainers us the Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive (LIMA) strategy and any tool that we recommend, we discuss with the parents first
