When we decided to get a second dog, we did not hesitate to sign her up for classes with Maribeth. We found that the group training and more importantly, the socialization, was very important to molding the dog’s behavior.
Maribeth loves animals and it shows in her class techniques. Our dogs, Justice and Freedom, are well-behaved, socialized members of our family and we thank Maribeth for helping us achieve such great results. You cannot find a more loving, caring, and competent trainer than Maribeth.
Never would have thought taking dog training lessons could be so much fun, but it certainly is with Maribeth at Wagging Tail Academy! My two Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers and I have taken many classes at WTA over the past three years. Grane has earned his PhD and Freia, her Bachelors.
Maribeth is stellar at training not only the pups, but their owners as well. She uses ONLY positive reinforcement, so it is easy on dogs and humans alike. She offers complementary education programs, Canine Life and Social Skills – CLASS, the AKC training courses and the DoMoreWithYourDog tricks classes. We have participated in all and more.
After an unfortunate incident at the dog park, Freia became fearful of other dogs and it was Maribeth to the rescue with her Reactive to Rover class. Freia can now walk calmly with her pack and approach unfamiliar dogs without incident.
Even our classmates, canine and human, have been fabulous and it is all down to the enthusiasm, knowledge and control of our headmistress! This happy pack cannot thank Maribeth enough for all her help and guidance.
