Wag & Train has teamed up with Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training and City Bark Doggy Daycare to help you train your dog.
Wag & Train offers group classes, private sessions, community lectures, and workshops that are held in a learning environment that encourages your dog to learn through positive motivation, and sets them up to succeed. Using lure reward-based methods, visual cues, and body language, Wag & Train instructors teach you how to communicate effectively and without force. Wag & Train is the only facility in Colorado chosen by Victoria Stilwell herself to ensure you are getting the best in science-based, dog-friendly training. Our methods are like those used on her show, “It’s Me or the Dog”, and we are very proud to say we don’t use or condone shock, choke, or prong collars.
Good Behavior and Manners 1
City Bark Denver (I25 & 8th Avenue)
This class is for dogs who have graduated Super Puppy class, older dogs with no previous formal training, or those who could brush-up on some good manners. This course involves learning all the basic commands necessary for a well-mannered dog. We will also teach you the most effective way to help change those unwanted behaviors (jumping, barking, pulling on the leash) as well as other valuable handling techniques.
Length: 5 weeks
Age: 5 months and older
Super Puppy 1 (Drop-In/ Start anytime)
Saturdays – 10:00am – 10:45am (ongoing)
City Bark Denver (I25 & 8th Avenue)
Super Puppy 1 is an ongoing drop-in class so you may begin lessons as soon as you bring your puppy home after their first set of vaccinations. There is no need to wait until they’ve had all of their shots, as your puppy will only be exposed to other puppies.
Super Puppy 1 drop-in classes are 30-minutes long and perfect for puppies 8-13 weeks of age. We focus on teaching bite inhibition, socialization, desensitization to people, lure reward training, and beginning commands.
Price: $65 for 6 drop-in classes. You may come to as many puppy classes as you’d like before your puppy graduates, and buy more punchcards
Pre-requisite: First set of vaccinations is required.
Age: 8-13 weeks

City Bark is very excited about the Day Training program as it will give wonderful dogs, who may not do well in our traditional daycare program, the chance to interact in a small group setting while working on social skills, basic commands, and impulse control.
The Day Training program is being taught by Noble Beast Dog Training, and is held at City Bark multiple days during the week. For more information on this exciting new program, visit their website at http://www.noblebeastdogtraining.com.
