We have various packages to suit your requirements, from basic obedience on to house discipline, socializing and much more. Our training methodologies based on positive reinforcement brings our the best in your pet and also ensure that your pet and you not only enjoy training together, but also form an everlasting bond.
Wag-ville’s unique training programs include training the dogs together with the owners!
Making an impulsive decision to get a new pup into your life might sound amazing, but did you realize that many dogs are soon put up for adoption as owners may not have made an informed decision about selecting the right pet for themselves, and very quickly find themselves overwhelmed with caring for an animal which exhibits behavior that they were not prepared for.
We help new dog parents make a choice of suitable breeds that go with their lifestyle, and also conduct scientifically proven temperament assessments for puppies in advance of buying or adopting a new pet.
When bringing a new puppy into your life, one often faces multiple challenges like:
The pup is peeing everywhere – how to potty train the pup?
What should we do if the pup has separation anxiety?
How often should the pup be fed?
How much exercise does the dog need?
The pup is biting / mouthing constantly – how does one manage that?
Wag-ville’s ‘New Puppy Onboarding Consults’ help you answer all these questions and much more, and help you and your family transition into your puppy-parenthood with ease, comfort and joy!
Basic Obedience Training focuses on helping a family and a dog understand each other and live together comfortably.
Our unique Basic Obedience program, trains not only the dog, but also the owners, thereby helping them not only work with each other but understand each other better and build a lasting bond.
The methods are entirely based on positive techniques, and heavily involve the owners in the reinforcement process.
Basic obedience includes teaching the dog to walk on a loose leash, basic house manners like not jumping on guests and furniture, not running out of the door, listening to important commands like sit, down, stay etc, effective socialization and much more.

Pet dogs have no more purpose in our homes than waiting for their meals and waiting for their masters to come back and play with them each day. With overly busy schedules, it is very often difficult for owners to spend much quality time doing a lot of physical activities with their pets, often leading to both behavioral as well as physical issues in pets.
A great way to get a dog to behave better, calm down, and stay fit is to begin agility lessons. Agility lessons include weaving through poles, moving through tunnels, walking on ramps, negotiating steps and much more.
Agility sessions can be done for dogs that are over a year old and in good health as confirmed by a vet.
The job of a therapy dog is to be caring, affectionate and bring joy to people, while interacting with people to help them with specific activities from a therapeutic goal perspective. Our certified trainers conduct temperament testing prior to selection of future therapy animals, and offer specialized training for therapy animals who can be used in homes, schools, hospitals and even corporate settings.
We not only condition and train the animals, but also the owners and handlers in order to equip them with the knowledge needed in order to bring out the best in the dog.
The job of an Assistance Dog (or Guide Dog) is to help an individuals who might be:
- Visually impaired – helping them to walk safely, climb stairs, walk outside and cross the roads safely, fetch objects
- Hearing impaired – helping with alerts for the important voices, sounds or audio signals
- Mobility impaired – helping pull, push or carry certain things or even maintain the body balance when they have got an impaired physical function like impaired walk or motor functions
- Other special needs / disabilities
Assistance Dogs are trained to help such individuals with their specific needs.
The process for training Assistance Dogs involves –
- Understanding the requirements of the individuals in detail
- Conducting physical and temperament tests prior to selection of future Assistance Dogs
- Developing a training and conditioning plan based on the requirements
- Training and conditioning the dog (along with the future owner)
- Testing the dog for readiness
- Completing a handover of the trained animal to the new owner
- Monitoring the dog-owner team for a period of time, and completing any training course correction
Do you have a certified pure breed dog, that you would like to show in dog shows?
Showing a dog involves:
- Gaiting (walking a dog on a lead)
- Physical examination of the dog
- And much more – all to be performed in front of a likely audience of a few thousand people, in a new place, with several other dogs around.
Show dog training requires not only a high amount of discipline but also a great amount of conditioning and socialization in order to ensure your dog can perform as required in front of a large noisy crowd in a highly excitable atmosphere.
Our show dog training packages help bring out the star in your show dog.
