Our Training Philosophy


Wonder Dog Training offers dog-friendly, effective training for your dog’s most challenging behavioral and obedience concerns! We work with all breeds and temperaments, and every training program is customized to your dog’s needs. Our trainers are among the best: experienced, educated, caring professionals that work to bring out the best in your dog!

At Wonder Dog Training, we believe that your dog is an important member of your family and deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. It is our goal to help you build a solid and enduring relationship with your dog that will last a lifetime. We also want to help you have the dog of your dreams: well-mannered, confident, obedient, and a joy to be around.

We make training fun and use dog-friendly methods that engage your dog’s natural temperament, abilities, and drives. When training is rewarding, dogs want to participate! They also learn more quickly and retain more, which is training at its best.

Every dog is a unique individual. Some are shy, some are overly energetic, some are challenging. Our trainers spend time to get to know you and your dog. We take a  comprehensive holistic approach to training in order to achieve the best results. In so doing, we consider such factors as your dog’s breed, age, sex, temperament, general health, and history.

This information is then used to create a customized training plan that addresses all of your dog’s obedience and behavioral concerns.  Our methods and tools are adapted to suit each situation. All family members are invited to participate in the training, including the kids!

All of our trainers have been hand-picked for their unique abilities, education, experience, and areas of expertise. They are dedicated dog professionals who go above and beyond to see that their client’s dogs obtain their training objectives, whether the focus is obedience and manners, puppy concerns, or challenging behavioral issues. Please see our Trainer Bios for more information.
