Hello! I am a happy person always with a smile on my face. I have three dogs of my own and love spending time with them. I work with animals as my profession, so I am comfortable around a variety of animals. I enjoy being outside and being able to spend time with my dogs. I would love to be able to spend more time with your dog and get them some good exercise or just a simple bathroom break.

Hey there! My name is Ari and I like to think of myself as an animal enthusiast. I love dogs and grew up around pitbulls, so I know a thing or two about strong personalities... nah, just kidding! My two pitties were some of the goofiest wannabe-lap-dog babies I will ever know. But, unfortunately, my family had to give them away to another great home after my dad found out we were relocating to Germany. But that didn't stop me from loving on as many dogs as I could! I was determined, so I joined a facebook group for dog sitters in my local area and started building up an arsenal... of dog-fur covered clothes that is. But now I am back in the U.S. of A., and ready to love on, pet, and walk as many dogs as I can!

Did you know Newfoundlands have webbed paws and water-resistant coats? These fluffers are expert swimmers, making them the ideal candidates for dock diving competitions. They’re also uniquely suited for water rescue missions. Despite their aptitude for any activity that involves the water, training a Newfoundland for water rescue is no easy feat. At the age of 4 months, Newfy puppies start a detailed training regimen, beginning with obedience basics before moving on to drowning simulations. The process can take up to a year.
The abilities of a service dog know no bounds. These hound-dog heroes can be trained to detect cancer, alert their handlers of a seizure, and lead the blind. It can take up to 2 years to train a service dog to perform the tasks their handler requires, but training actually continues throughout their lives. Service dog training is usually best for young puppies. Although all dog breeds can qualify for service dog training, some breeds are better suited for the job, like Labradors and German Shepherds.
Has Fido grown tired of the same old games? Try your paw at treibball! This exciting and complex canine sport is kind of like soccer. The premise is simple: your dog uses their nose to push a series of balls into a goal. The execution is the hard part! This activity requires a solid foundation of basic obedience commands — including come, stay, and lie down — as well as cues specific to the sport. Official treibball competitions are timed, but there’s no reason why you can’t blow up some beach balls and set up a net in your own backyard!

These dog training options cover everything from puppy training basics to leash etiquette and recall. Consultation fees of up to $200 on average may apply, in addition to travel fees.

Is your pupper begging to feel the wind in their fur? Make sure you know the rules and restrictions of Wichita’s off-leash dog parks. Breed restrictions apply at some of the city’s dog parks, so it’s good to know before you go. Just like all dog parks, pet owners are held responsible for their dogs’ behavior, including injuries inflicted and any property damage. Ensure your dog is wearing proof of current vaccinations.
Now that you know the rules, it’s time to play! Chapin Dog Park is one of the most popular off-leash playgrounds in the city. With drinking water and separate sections for small and large breeds, the park has everything you need for a dog’s day out. (But it’s on you to bring the waste baggies!) If you think Rufus might get a little too rowdy in the off-leash area, keep the leash attached and take a walk along the gravel trails first.
Looking for a place for Spot to show off their agility skills? Chisholm Creek Pet Resort Pup Park is the perfect place. You’ll need a membership to play here, or you can grab a day pass from the canine care center that maintains the park if you’re just visiting. Fun features like an on-site pond and agility course provide an excellent physical and mental workout for woofers, and the entrance fees ensure this park is a safe place for every pup to play. Staffordshire Terriers and Pit Bull hybrids are prohibited, unfortunately.

The Wag! app makes it easy to find a dog trainer near you. You’ll work hand-in-hand with your trainer to create a bespoke training approach that fits your dog’s needs and temperament.
Wichita dog trainers work with a wide variety of breeds. The Cairn Terrier is the unofficial state dog of Kansas, all thanks to a “little dog” named Toto from The Wizard of Oz. Unlike the obedient dog who sat so pretty in Dorothy’s basket, less famous Cairn Terriers are known for pushing their parent’s buttons. These intelligent lap dogs get the hang of tricks quickly, but they’re just as wily as they are intelligent. They channel their natural prey drive, which stems from their origins as small-game hunters in Scotland, through digging and chasing. Got a mischievous Cairn Terrier on your paws? Connect with a Wichita dog trainer and discover new ways to discourage your doggo’s digging habit.
On the list of top three most popular dog breeds in Wichita, the Pug is right on the heels of the beloved Labrador and the adorable French Bulldog. These happy little dogs live to please their people — a trait that certainly makes training easier. They’re also friendly, so socializing should be a breeze. Pugs are likely to pout if punished or reprimanded using negative reinforcement methods. Maintain a positive, consistent approach to training and your Pug will be on their best behavior in no time flat.
Whether you’re working on leash manners, basic commands, or canine sports, all dog breeds benefit from daily training exercises. Book a session with a Wichita dog trainer on the Wag! app and find out what your four-legged friend is made of!
