Last but not least, we offer training. We do private one-on-one lessons ($90 for your first, $40 for follow ups), obedience board & trains ($800 & up), and advanced board & trains ($1100 & up). During the one-on-one lessons, we start with an assessment to determine the undesired behaviors and finding the triggers that are causing them. During the obedience board & trains, we teach the following commands:
Waiting for food
Waiting at thresholds
Basic house manners
An advanced board and train is required for dogs who have bitten or have potential to bite. Each board and train program is a minimum of 2 weeks and covers basic obedience commands listed above. The advanced board and train program also includes the following issues:
Dog to dog aggression
Food and/or resource guarding
Severe fear issues
Reactivity on leash
Aggression toward small animals/cats
Severe cases may require additional weeks. Each additional week in the advanced board and train is $375 extra.
In certain situations, we may offer a payment plan.
I couldn't be happier with my cat! I was satisfied with the adoption process....while it seems like a lot of hoops, it actually moved really quickly and my kitty was home with me within 4-5 days of applying. Was very well cared for in terms of foster home and vetting. More...
They are truly a blessing. A sixth sense with animals.
Very knowledgeable. We learned a lot. So glad they were able to help our dogs
Absolutely amazing! These girls are so dedicated, knowledgeable, and wonderful to work with! I wouldn't have anyone else work with one of my animals!
Well I have never done the training with them. But I can say they have opened my eyes to different things with animals an makes me want to foster n own animals and be just like them.. they are great people.
They helped us understand how to help our anxious dog chill out. They helped educate my husband and I on how to adjust what we were doing. They have been super supportive and awesome to work with! We're already seeing great results! More...
Nichole and Steph helped us understand our dogs behavior and gave us the tools we needed to overcome issues we were having. Thanks to them we are now confident about being in control and able to take them out in public. More...
These ladies were great with my new adoptee from the pound, with their help she has become one of the family.

Steph and Nichole did great helping me with my foster dog, Harris! He had trouble trusting people at first. After a few at home sessions and there socializing class on Monday. He was able to be adopted. He is a much happier, well balanced family member. Thanks for your help ladies! More...
Wiggly Butts has gone above and beyond to help dogs adopted from the pound and their new families to be happy in their new homes. Love the dedication to their mission. More...
We adopted two dogs within a couple months of each other, both had behavioral issues. Ollie was very possessive of toys and bones and he didn't respond well to correction, he is very dominant for a small dog. He also had a high prey drive with our cats, it eventually became so bad, our cats would not come downstairs. So we reached out to Steph and Nichole of wiggly butts! Ollie had a couple sessions and we quickly learned how to correct him and provide him with structure and consistency. (We were doing it all wrong ourselves) we can now take bones and toys right out of his mouth and he sleeps next to the cats on the couch! Taffy, our lab is very submissive and she is learning confidence! With the help of wiggly butts dog training, both our dogs have improved so much! Thanks! More...

Nichole and Steph are miracle workers and so genuine! They were wonderful throughout our adoption process of Regan- a meatball full of love who just wanted to find a family. The girls spent valuable time with us during the dog visits not only introducing Regan to our two other dogs, but also training and working with us and our dogs on issues we were dealing with. They made the acclamation so easy, putting all my anxiety to rest! They had my 100lb Pit Bull walking calmly and respecting "space" in a matter of a few days. Nichole and Steph have a great attitude and even bigger hearts. What they do on the training side and adoption side is remarkable and a blessing! Regan is happy in his new home, and we are just as happy to have him! Thanks Nichole and Steph, we are forever grateful! More...

Nichole and Steph are extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior. I have seen the results of their rehabilitation efforts when visiting with the rescue dogs, and I've experienced it first hand when they've helped out with my sweet girl. It's amazing to watch them work! They are able to help the scared and submissive dogs learn to be more confident, they are able to help dominant dogs learn boundaries, and they are able to help the humans learn how to understand the cues given by the animals. I've never had experience with a pet who had behavioral issues until recently. The Wiggly Butts girls are helping me learn how to help my girl, and I'm so grateful!
I recently took advantage of the boarding service offered by Wiggly Butts. I was quite anxious to know that I had to be away from Chilli for 10 nights during our spring break vacation. In the past, Chilli had been boarded at a kennel twice; once for two nights, and once for five. She is very nervous around other dogs, and has a history of severe aggression towards them. While boarded, she was isolated from the other animals, but at the same time was able to see and hear them all around her. I was told that she barked nearly all of the time, and slept very little. She came home with her nose and muzzle bloodied from trying to break out of the kennel. I couldn't bear the thought of sending her back to that environment for twice as long! Chilli stayed with Steph, and then Nichole while we were away, and she thrived. Within a short amount of time she was acclimated to their homes, and able to enjoy playtime and snuggles with her new doggie friends. I would have never believed it had I not seen picture and video evidence! I am eternally grateful that Chilli was relaxed and happy while we were gone, rather than scared out of her mind. I will never have her stay anywhere else!! More...
We took our adopted Tripod and his little sister here and they helped us learn to control and teach the how to act on walkies and around other doggos. They also worked with us on a home visit as well. They're great, patient, understanding and very knowledgeable!!! You guys are the best!! More...
My husband and I cannot thank Steph and Nichole for all they have done for our boy !! He is much more balanced and respecting of us. They have done wonders for him and we would recommend them to anyone ! They are miracle workers!! More...

Stephanie and Nichole understand why a dog is responding in a particular manner and how to respond accordingly. They’ve been so helpful in training us how to respond and train our dog in obedience. We’ve also learned so much in how to give our dog confidence and positive encounters with other dogs. We’d highly recommend Wiggly Butts Training to anyone! More...
In just the initial two hour assessment session, Steph and Nichole taught me how to take my extremely anxious dog and give her that confidence to relax. In the time between that first session and the follow up, I worked with my dog every day, and she’s like a totally different dog. She doesn’t hide or come into my space without my encouragement. She relaxes more without needing a security blanket at all times. She sits and waits for people to give her attention rather than jumping on them. I’m so glad I chose them, and I would recommend them to anyone. More...
