What Dogs Want

providing fun, educational, and purposeful activities for dogs

We are a team of dog behavior and enrichment specialists who understand dog behavior and their unique needs.  A very special dog inspired us to create a unique program that meets these needs and brings out the best in every dog.


Our mission is to help dogs live their happiest, most fulfilled lives but we are also here for pet parents, to help you build stronger bonds with your dogs, find easy and fun ways to engage with them more and enjoy opportunities to watch your dog have fun being a dog. 


How do we do that? 

  • Our one-of-a-kind Enrichment Center is where dogs spend the day having fun participating in activities that provide appropriate outlets while learning important new skills. 

  • We work with rescues and shelters to provide or help develop enrichment programs for the dogs in their care.

  • We offer private consultations for enrichment and activity ideas to have fun with your dog at home.

  • We understand all breeds but develop enrichment plans for dogs as individuals. 

...and THAT is What Dogs Want!

Enrichment Center

Our unique What Dogs Want Academy is often described as a Montessori school for dogs. Its purpose is to help dogs build confidence through games that engage their minds, activities to engage their bodies, and opportunities to stimulate their senses. Dogs make choices, practice manners, and socialize with a small group of like-minded pups.
