Science-Based Training 


Here at Wandering Willows, we use a cognitive approach to address the behaviours dogs are showing us.  

We teach our clients how to better understand their dogs and how to work with them using reward-based methods and working towards natural social and problem-solving skills.

It is about having a shared goal.

 These methods help to build a strong and lasting bond between owner and dog.
