Introduction To Protection
Extra Security For Your Family
A family dog should be a loyal family companion first and foremost, being able to trust your dog is key. For our protection course we start with a very strong obedience foundation and then add in some protection basics. Most people do not want or need a full fledged attack dog as that would be a huge liability.
Since no two dogs are alike, and no two owners need the same type of training for their dog(s), we do not use a “one-size fits-all training approach,” like shock collars, also known as e-collars. Other dog training companies may depend on the use of shock collars, but we prefer to use more humane methods that produce solid results. We incorporate a variety of training protocols to meet the needs of the individuals we are working with.
Another way we customize our program is that we will show owner(s) how to train with their dog and get the same results we get, building owner confidence as well as lasting results in the dog. Our goal is for dog owners to be able to rely on themselves to train and maintain their dogs rather than having to rely on a trainer when their dog needs to learn something new.
We will schedule training with you and your dog(s) weekly for one-hour sessions. Then throughout the week, you will practice with your dog and meet again with one our trainers to either improve on that training or move to the next step. These training sessions are available in various locations from Fredericksburg to Culpeper. To schedule and customize an Introduction To Protection training plan for your individual situation, please contact us at (540) 324-3518.

Reviews from Wag Ur Tail Dog Training alumni speak for themselves:
We did a 6-session private lesson package, and even after one there was a major improvement! The lessons were straightforward and kept simple so that we knew exactly what to practice and keep an eye out for at home and when we worked with [our dog] in public.
Mike has helped me not to be anxious and how to take control of my puppy. He answers emails right away and never tires of my questions . . . In the two lessons we have had so far, my puppy can go up and down stairs, comes when called (still a work in progress), will walk right with me off his leash, and stays when we are outside.
Living in a multi-dog household is lots of fun and lots of work. Food, sleep, exercise, and sharing all require training for a happy pack.
