Read what dogs (and people) are saying about tails…

Jen, I’ve also been meaning to let you know how much your class helped us! We are continuing to utilize and expand upon not only the techniques you taught us but also the broader concepts behind those techniques (engagement-disengagement, calmness, focus). Your class has really been life-changing for our little canine family! Just in the last few weeks, I was able to vacuum while Tui played fetch in the house AND we went on a 9 day van camping trip with the dogs that was more successful (with a lot of planning and preemptive management) and fun than I could have imagined a few months ago!

We love TAW. It’s not just a place to drop your dog off so you can go to work… it’s school for your puppers. They work hard on training, socialization, and BIG LOVES. Have a question? They will answer. Dealing with bad behavior? They will train you so you can train your dog. They have expectations on dog behavior, and they expect owners to be willing to work with their dogs at home. But the outcome is a well-mannered, sweet, happy dog. Our sweet boy loves to be at school and always has big snuggles for the trainers there. Debi

Jen, Thank you so much for your notes and for a wonderful training session last Thursday morning! And thank you for noticing so many wonderful things about Scout; we’ve had a few training sessions in the past that were more focused on her reactive behaviors than on her. This is going to sound a bit silly to you, maybe, but I hadn’t realized how much a difference it would make for me when I feel like the trainer we’re working with genuinely likes and enjoys Scout.

I just wanted to update you and your staff and tell them what an awesome private lesson I had with Jess and Penny.

I’m seeing her again next Friday with my mom and nephew here and she did a fantastic job answering my questions, providing me with education and homework, and showing me just what Penny is capable of.

Maybe it’s a pug thing, or a dog thing, but she really loves to show off how great she is at following commands and prompts with your staff while choosing not to listen to her own mother!

Now I have a pooped puglet ready for a well-deserved nap!

I just wanted to thank you and your staff and Jess for all the great work you’ve done with Penny. It is so appreciated.

They are the best! During our Bellingham years our 145 lb Newfie mix was a regular. They taught him how to be a gentleman big dog. They employed him as a patient temperament tester for rambunctious newbies. When he grew old and a little less patient they let him be a front office dog and greeter. He had a wonderful social life in large part to Tails-a-Wagging. We will always be grateful and they hold a special place in our heart.

I attended another wonderful lecture of [Angi’s] last night – The barking lecture at Whatcom Humane Society. I want to thank you for the information. I also attended your other lectures recently at [Tails-A-Wagging]. Lauren also did a home visit and we attended puppy kindergarten. And you may remember Kurt, my 6 month 5 pound chihuahua mix from puppy preschool. The information I have received from you and your staff has been fantastic and I’m sure it’s why Kurt is so well adjusted and happy. Thank you! – Amy Bruce

I’ve taken two classes with Tails A Wagging and I will definitely be coming back for more. They worked wonders with my leash aggressive cockapoo and my deaf cockapoo, who took the Managing the Growlies and Ruff Around the Edges classes respectively. The trainers really know how to work with dogs and their humans and the methods used in the Growlies class allow me to walk my dog in peace. They use all positive reinforcement and I am much closer to my dogs than before. My dogs also love class.

The staff are amazing at Tails, and they really care about the dogs. I completely trust them. Thank you Tails-A-Wagging!!

A picture speaks a thousand words. Tails is Scotch’s favorite & has helped him transition from crazy rescue puppy to respectful adult (still sometimes crazy) dog. 🐶😊 The positive reinforcement training is exactly what Scotch needs & they have a truly incredible crew.

TAW is by far one of the absolute best places and experiences for your dog. Gizmo went to daycare for over a decade and it helped him so much. Daycare at TAW was one of his favorite things in the whole world. We just adopted a Chihuahua puppy and not only is puppy preschool free but they offer so many wonderful resources for ensuring your dog will be socialized and well trained. I trust Angi and her staff more than anyone else with my beloved pets. I can not thank Angi enough for all the support over the years and for introducing me to not one but two amazing dogs. Her continued community efforts and dedication are an inspiration. Thank you TAW!! Jadey and Toph
