Why We’re Different

Beyond Obedience To Advanced Trick Training

Most dog trainers offer you basic obedience and solutions to common behaviour problems

…and that’s about it.

We at Wag The Dog, however, come with a background of training assistance dogs, and we know what our pets are really capable of! Better yet, we know how to show you what they are capable of.

Most dog trainers can teach your dog to sit and stay. But not all dog trainers have experience in teaching dogs to open doors, turn on lights, fetch objects from the fridge, and put your dirty laundry in the hamper!

Dog trick training is a specialized skill, and not every trainer offers it, but it is the secret to a well-behaved, enthusiastic pet and a strong bond between you and your furry best friend.  Better yet, it can be mastered by all family members, including the children, and at Wag The Dog, we love to encourage budding dog trainers.

Unlock The Potential In Your Pet:

Vancouver is filled with pets who spend most of the day home, alone, and bored. While you are at work all day, meeting new challenges, what is your cat doing? What is your dog doing?

  • Do you come home only to discover that your pet is full of energy, stressed, or anxious?
  • Do you find that your pet’s bad behaviour is damaging your bond?
  • Do you just wish your pet would help out more around the house?

At Wag The Dog, we believe in what we call “higher education” of our animal companions.

We help pets meet new challenges, discover new abilities, and become a true joy to their loving human companions. By directing their energies into novel activities, not only do we make life more fun for them, we make life easier for their owners.

Unlock The Potential In Your Family:

Some dog trainers will only work with your dog, but not you. Many dog trainers will only work with the adult(s) of the family. But at Wag The Dog, we believe in working with the whole family, including the children, and even the babies!

Not only do we love to teach children how to become great dog handlers, but we actually prefer to work with your whole family to ensure that your dog receives consistent handling.

We know that even small children can become excellent dog handlers with the right encouragement, and we’d love to help your whole family discover its inner dog trainer.

At Wag The Dog, We Dream Big:

Why settle for “Rover, sit” or “Mittens, get off of the counter!” when you could be saying “Rover, fetch me a drink”, and “Mittens, turn on the tv”?

Can we teach your dog to sit, stay, and come when called?


Can we help you with his separation anxiety?


But why stop there?

  • We can also teach him to open the fridge and bring you a drink.
  • We can teach him to wake you up when the fire alarm goes off in the night.
  • We can teach him to read.
  • Oh, and we can teach your cat to use the toilet, and your rabbit to turn on the stereo while we’re at it.

Our knowledge and experience goes about and beyond that of the average dog trainer, giving you a truly unique experience as we help you discover your pet in ways you never dreamed possible.

What talents are lying dormant in your pet, waiting to be tapped?
