Meet Wag

The Wag n Tails Philosophy

Whether you’re new to dog ownership or you’ve been around, we know that being a pet parent is an incredibly rewarding and sometimes frustrating experience. We know you love your dog through good times and bad times and we’re here to add more of the good and take away the bad. The result? A peaceful and symbiotic relationship between human and dog in which you learn as much from your dog as he or she learns from you!

Meet Wag n Tails – a dynamic and passionate platform, training system, and community made for dog lovers by dog lovers. We provide a range of training services (both in-person and online) for pet parents and potential dog trainers covering everything from the basics and specifics. Our system, created and directed by Christine Fox, uses science-based, force-free methods that are designed to strengthen your relationship with and patience towards your dog. Christine Fox, a passionate dog lover and training professional guarantees that her approach not only teaches your dog to learn from you but also opens you up to the amazing things you can learn from your dog.
