We love our fur-babies. They bring joy into our lives, and fill a space in our hearts we didn’t know was empty.
Part of owning a pet is the reality that our pooch needs to be taught to function in human society. Be it for puppies – with their love for wires, shoes or trash – or mature dogs who somewhere along the way developed fear or anxiety behaviors, behavioral modification can help. Pet training has long been a recommendation for new pet owners, or for pets who developed some less-than-desirable behavioral traits. The benefits of pet training far exceed the monetary investment, but not all pet training is equal.
Group dog training usually looks like a small group of anxious puppies awaiting instructions or a piece of jerky with a dog trainer, and are typically held once or twice a week at a set time. This structure can be demanding for an owner and stressful on the dog. While we know the value of proper training is beneficial for pups or adjusting behavioral issues, one-on-one dog training has been shown to have far more significant results in a shorter time.
Why We’re Different
At Wag Ur Tail, take advantage of dog obedience training in Stafford Virginia from a trained professional in a unique setup. Our one-on-one boarding training offers a 2-week boarding training experience that specializes in one-on-one training with our beloved Mike Morrison at his home in Spostylvania, VA.
Your dog will spend authentic time with the Morrison family. Under Mike’s supervision and direction, your dog has access to the best dog training in Stafford. In addition to exposing your pup to other environments, he will learn new skills every day. We teach basic commands (sit, lay down, heel, come…) and others too. Dogs are also trained to curb behavioral antics like jumping, pulling on the leash, grabbing food, and running out the door.
Our boarding training incorporates a genuine love for obedience and practical training skills from an experienced dog trainer. Dogs are trained humanely and professionally, without the use of shock collars or unethical discipline. No dog is untrainable. Having two weeks to spend in a different environment with someone new may help your dog feel more relaxed and learn easier.
Customized Dog Obedience Training in Stafford Virginia
Another advantage of our boarding training is Mike can customize your dog’s training. If there are certain behaviors like aggression, anxiety, or other problematic behaviors, Mike’s practice will focus more on those needs. The benefit of having one trainer and one dog to focus on is if one technique doesn’t work, he can try another. He has experience with different methods to produce the desired result.
