Woofs of Wisdom, LLC's owner, Nicole McBride, has been training and providing behavior consulting professionally since 1995. Our trainers all come with years of experience and offer all levels of training from puppy to advanced, therapy work and dog sports. Communication, initiative and consistency is the key to a well trained and well behaved dog and we teach the owners how to use these effectively with their dogs. We work closely with both the owner and the pet on any issue, no matter how large or small and have experience working with a variety of breeds and behavior issues in addition to utilizing various methods and training aids. You can read about our experience by visiting the About page. Classes are held at Collegeville Station, 50 W. Third Ave in Collegeville.
A constructive environment is also very important and we try to make everyone feel at ease using humor and an easy-going style. Our training techniques utilize verbal cues and body language as a tool between owner and dog including positive reinforcement and the Volhard Motivational Method. We do believe that dogs need to know the rules, boundaries and expectations and we align rewards with emendations/consequences where needed and appropriate. This creates a custom blend of methods where dogs and owners are not limited by one specific approach. The goal is to find the method that works for both dog and owner.
