Hear what happy customers are saying about Tail Waggin’ Dog Training.
Adopting a fearful dog opened my eyes to a whole world of new concepts as I tried to help her become more comfortable and relaxed in everyday life. I started Nosework in 2015 as a way to help build her confidence. From that 1st class, she and I were hooked. Shortly after, I adopted another dog who was environmentally sensitive. I immediately enrolled him in Nosework classes. To this day, I still love watching their confidence grow as we navigated this sport together. When I started Nosework, I had no plans to compete. That was until I volunteered at a Nosework trial (highly recommended to anyone interested in this sport). Between the fun atmosphere and friendly people, I was drawn to participate. In 2018, with the support of my instructor, I entered my 1st Nosework Trial. Now, I currently compete with 3 of my 4 dogs. My environmentally sensitive dog is entering Elite, while my fearful dog and my youngest are working their way through the various levels. I could watch dogs search all day long. I’m so excited to share this sport with anyone who wants to come play.

Just wanted you to know how well Parker is doing. He is a super obedient, attentive, well adjusted 8 month old. He now goes off leash with me everywhere on the farm. He stays right with me on hikes, enjoys swimming, does very well meeting new dogs and is even sorta friends with the duck. Thanks for helping me believe in him. That was the only missing piece. And getting him hooked on the ball has been huge. He loves it and it’s a great activity for us all to do with him. He’s fantastic with the kids. He’s quite the perfect farm and family dog and we’re lucky to have him. Thanks for getting us on the right track.

Heather is WONDERFUL. We did a home training with her and after a mere hour, we’re already seeing progress with our baby Homer. Not only does she give you a bounty of amazing information, but she has a fabulous and fun personality that made the hour fly by. She is attentive, cares about your specific questions, and offers gentle feedback and adjustments to what you’re already doing to get your pup into the best behavior possible. I’m looking forward to signing up for manners classes with her soon! 1010 would recommend!! – Katie W.
Excellent trainer! Uses positive methods and really loves dogs, big or small. We’ve attended her classes for our dogs – a Pom and a Lab mix. Highly recommend Heather! – Gwenn
Heather is a great trainer. She had many good pointers in my puppies success. Both Beau and Smokey are thankful for your help. I recommend her puppy Kindergarten. – Teri
Heather and Janice were awesome! My Pyr was fearful and shy, but they were so good at working with each dog in the class individually. They went over and above to make him feel safe in a new environment. Their teaching tactics are spot on, I don’t think there’s a better trainer on the Cape! – Marci
Heather is awesome and not only helped our new puppy learn how to be well mannered using positive methods, but she helped us as a family (our 6&2 yo came to class with us!) and as new dog owners to have a confidence in our ability to welcome and control such a big dog into our lives… we keep her number close in case we ever need “a touch up” because we have 100% confidence in her being able to help us work through whatever comes our way as dog moms! Highly recommended! – Phoebe
Excellent puppy class and Heather and Co worker are Awesome – Dawn 🐾🐕 😃
Heather is a great trainer! My sheltie Minnie just got her Manners 1 diploma, and we are training for Manners 2 soon! A very positive and encouraging class! We will be back! – 2/6/21
We’ve been training with Heather over more than ten years. She was incredibly helpful with our old Sheepdog who had some unacceptable ideas about herding cars and people! We had fun and great success with basic obedience and later agility. Now we have a goofy sheepadoodle pup who is doing great in basic manners using her reward-based approach.
Heather runs classes that are just the right mix of demonstration and participation. Positive reinforcement only. We are happy and our dog is our friend. And it works! – Paula
Our Jazzy has gone for Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Manners I and currently is in Basic Manners II. Heather is an excellent and very skilled trainer for both Jazzy as well as us! Highly recommend her positive training style for all dogs. Her assistant Janice is also quite skilled and helpful in reinforcing the proper techniques. – Linda
Heather’s love of dogs really shows in the training and handling your dog and yourself will receive in her classes. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her knowledge of positive reinforcement training techniques is very impressive. My dogs and I have a great quality of life due in large part to Heather’s help. – R.
