Board & Train
Board & Train programs have traditionally used tools like e-collars, prong collars, choke chains and slip leads to teach compliance. We don't.
Our programs teach dogs to coexist happily - they choose to do what we ask because they want to, not because we they have to "or else." Humans predict great things, not fear or pain, when working with Wiggle Butt Academy.
We commit to providing the highest quality learning without the nasty side effects of force.
Our Board & Train Programs
We focus on the right education at the right time. From critical-period socialization, manners, and healthy puppy play through adolescence - we guide you with kindness and science.
