Welcome to Waggin' Work

Welcome to Waggin’ Work dog training, a compassionate and fun environment where "positive, trusted human-dog relationships” are developed! I'm Kathe Baxter, the owner of Waggin’ Work Dog Training, operating within the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT).

Discover the opportunities possible with your canine companion. Waggin’ Work gives you the tools to build communication, mutual respect, and trust between you and your dog. We will show you how to understand your dog, teach your dog to understand you, and how to fit it all into your busy schedule.

In-Home Training Services

The companionship of a well-behaved dog is the foundation for everyday happiness. A well-trained dog is a happy dog. Teaching and understanding your dog will help solve problems, prevent new problems before they arise, and in return provide you the pleasure of working and playing together, building a lifelong bond.
