Healthier, Happier, & More Confident Dogs!
providing fun, educational, and purposeful activities for dogs
"Arya has learned to be patient and wait for things she wants. She is much more polite and asks nicely by sitting to say please. She also has been socialized with other pups so that she understands that all pups have different personalities and boundaries. At home, that has translated to better interaction with our older, grumpy doggie. Arya also is better retrained and less impulsive than she was when she began with WDW. That has made her interactions with our kitty much better and he likes her now."-MaraArya’s mom
"Redford benefits from the program in so many ways including productive, safe socialization with other dogs and humans. He also learns impulse control, and he is becoming more confident in general. Only one of our three dogs attends the program, but all three benefit because we continue to work on the activities at home with everyone."MelissaRedford's mom
“Besides Saturdays, Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week! My boys Ruger and Duke, are so happy and excited to go to What Dogs Want with Stef and that makes me so happy on Wednesday’s too! She not only has taught them great things like sitting before a door is opened but they are so smart they also know what day it is and what time it is and they both wait by the door looking out the window on Wednesdays at 7:30 am waiting for her to pull up! Watching the joy and excitement they have as they run to the van also makes me so happy! I’m beyond grateful to Stef and her team for all the years of happy, well-behaved dogs! Thank you!"Melissa F.
"Archie benefits from What Dogs Want in every way. He gets a chance to run and play, falls in love with the other dogs. He uses all his senses, smell, taste, sounds. There are games that challenge all parts of him. He comes home exhausted, curls up for a nap and he is ready to go again. He spent the last two months enjoying every part of What Dogs Want."DonnaArchie's mom
"Our Jack Russell mix has been attending WDW twice a week since he was a pup. He’s now midlife and is just as excited to meet the bus on school days as he ever was. He’s a smart, high energy breed and the enrichment has made all the difference in terms of understanding and managing his personality and behavior at home. The program really delivers “what dogs want,” and need! We especially love the bus option and the videos of our dog and his doggo friends at work and play during the school day."The Dessaules FamilyMelvin’s family
