What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I've been around animals my whole life. I was raised on a working ranch in North Idaho, and started actively working with animals in 1979. But working with dogs is my favorite! All they want to do is make us happy.

    Look no further!!!
    This was the most relaxed non stressful training. Shauna was amazing extremely patient and my dog took to her immediately. I highly recommend any of the Wagging Tails Training Classes for your baby. Your fur baby will look forward to it and so will you.

    Penny's pawfect experience
    Penny is my now 6 month old cocker spaniel! When I chose Penny I thought she was easy going and mellow. I became concerned when what I thought was mellow turned into a nervous, timid pup. She was afraid of everyone except myself and practically "screamed/yelped" when family members tried to pet her. I didn't know what to do, when someone recommended I see a trainer for her. When I contacted Shauna she was able to give me hope that Penny would be a "normal" puppy. On penny's first day she yelped and wouldn't let Shauna touch her! By the end of the first private lesson she was holding her without making her uncomfortable. We decided to renew her next 4 private lessons with Brianna and Shauna! I see such a huge difference... Penny runs with excitement when she sees Shauna and Brianna, instead of the fear I was afraid would control my puppy! Although Penny has proven to be an EXTREMLY smart dog, doing all of the commands they have taught us, I am just happy that she has gained her confidence and is becoming a more comfortable pup! Thank you Shauna and Brianna! Love Penny and Adrianna

    Hello Alexis, It looks like you reviewed the wrong business. As a business owner I believe that reviews are a big part of doing business. I thought you might like to know, so you can review the groomer you used.

    Shauna is an amazing talented dog trainer. She worked her magical and brought our very timid dog out of her she'll. We definitely plan to take more classes with her and would recommend her to anyone.

    Amazing. There is simply no other word to describe Shauna's talent with dogs. Her ability to train dogs in an astoundingly short time is something that must be witnessed to be believed. I recommend attending her class just to watch her work whether you have a dog or not, but beware - if you have a dog, you will end up signing up for classes - and it will be one of the best things you can do for your animal.

    Shauna was very friendly and knowledgable. She put us at ease and had our dogs literally eating from the palm of her hands. Thank you Jesus for her.

    I can highly recommend Wagging Tails Training. Shauna Fackler is very professional, clearly explaining how and why the training methods she utilizes will have positive results. After only two private in home sessions I have seen remarkable improvement in behavior and attitude of my 4 year old mixed breed dog. I could not be happier with the training experience Shauna is providing.

    Shauna is awesome! She is very generous with her time and REALLY cares. I stumbled upon her because another local trainer did not return my calls and I am so thankful that I did. My almost 4 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy is responding and learning so quickly and is on his way to becoming a well behaved dog that people will love and envy. Thank you Shauna and keep up the good work!

    I would give her 10 starts if possible. She did two of my big samoyed dogs. She is great! My dogs loved her. And we learned a lot from her. She gives great tips, advice and very professional. My dogs had lots of issues. And now they are great, loving and obedient dogs. She was flexible with our schedule too. Great price too!

    Thank you Alicia! I've enjoyed working with you and your dogs!

    Shauna is great! I have tried for two weeks to teach our rescue dog to sit, Shauna had him sitting on hand commands in minutes. She is also very honest with the amount of training needed.

    My dog and I started with Shauna when he was a puppy. We took beginning, intermediate, and advanced with her and my 10 month old pit bull achieved Good Canine Citizenship. She has worked with my other dog as well as multiple foster dogs. It has always been an enjoyable and educational experience.

    We have been working with Shauna since our Doberman was 10 weeks old. We started off with her beginner class and went all the way though to get our dog AKC CGC certified. Shauna is a great trainer who taught us a lot of great techniques. She is very patient and our doberman loves her.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
You want a dog trainer to teach to your standards. If you don't want to use harsh corrections, don't hire one that uses those types of corrections. You are your dogs advocate, and it's up to you to speak for them.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I will work with you to make sure you and your dog understand what is being asked and taught. Sometimes an adjustment in technique is needed. I don't teach everything exactly the same way to everyone and expect it to work.
