A Chat with Will Wag 4 Treats
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
A behavioral specialist is not the same as a dog trainer. Behavioral specialists understand behavioral concepts as well as applied canine behavior. A trainer is someone who has learned how to teach a dog a set of skills but does not have the education to diagnose or alter behavior problems.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology with an emphasis in animal learning and behavioral therapy. It was a natural transition since I was previously a racehorse owner and trainer before relocating to New York.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with both people and their pets. I find it rewarding to enhance both lives and teach a dog how to live in the human world.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“I didn’t think that was possible!” It is fantastic to hear someone express such joy when their dog Wags 4 Treats!
