The Smart Choice for Dog Training: Positively Fun

Positively fun, results-oriented training for your dog and family!

Woof Wise is serious, scientifically based training made fun for you and your dog, using positive reinforcement methods that work!

Endorsed by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, and used to teach marine mammals, wild zoo animals, police dogs and canine actors, Woof Wise uses positive reinforcement and clicker training because it works.

Positive reinforcement training rewards good behavior instead of punishing undesirable behavior. A clicker is the communication tool, marking behavior to say “what you did is right”, and the signal that a reward (treat or toy) is forthcoming.

This method never employs any type of correction collar.
