Such an excellent facility with incredibly knowledgeable staff and trainers. I have taken two of my fur babies here and it has always been a positive experience. I've learned so much and feel as if I'm a better dog parent based on the positive training techniques and approaches I've been taught through 3 of their programs.I plan to continue bringing my dogs here for future training!

Lots of fun items in the retail section. Doggy friendly staff and trainers. Clean facility. We like the 6 ft rule and the "no doggos meeting other doggos" thing. Our pup appreciates the distance.

This place does such a great job of helping you train your dog, but they also focus on training the dog's owners. We are putting our second dog through their classes and our first dog is a well-behaved great dog. Our second one is well on her way as well.

I want to give trainer Dan a shout out. I've been looking into adopting a rescue dog with hopes to turn him/her into a therapy dog. I needed some guidance from someone experienced in working with therapy dogs. I reached out to 'What a Great Dog' in hopes to get a few suggestions on what to do & look for when meeting a potential pup at a shelter. Instead of a simple email, Dan gave me a call. He took time out of his schedule to talk with me through all the information I needed to feel good about about choosing a potential pup to train, but also be shared his experiences when he first started out and what to expect. This was incredibly helpful, as well as it speaks to the genuineness of the staff at 'What a Great Dog. They have heart and do care. I'm looking forward to beginning classes with them.

My dog has completed Manners 1, 2, & 3 here and we love it! The people are unfailingly kind & friendly and my dog's behavior has dramatically improved. Best of all they give you the tools to keep training your dog on your own. Love the video training you get access to with the in person classes, too.

Enough good things cannot be said about WAGD. Every single staff member is kind, accommodating, and go above and beyond (even when I’m being high maintenance and asking 100 questions). Not only did my standard poodle learn to be a certified great girl, I also had a great time learning skills I can use for future dogs. Clemmie was such a great coach, if we weren’t moving we would be back again and again!

My Pyrenees mix pup was a mess! He ate walls and carpets and could have become a very bad, even dangerous dog. WAGD taught me about his breed and how to work with him. We don’t allow him to greet others and he is a polite boy, the groomer and the vet have commented on his manners. He picks up his dish for me when he is done eating, brings me my shoes and is a joy to us. Problem pet solved! Thank you!

All of it has been very helpful at very fair prices. They’ve been so valuable for this first-time puppy mom, and the classes are great. We start Manners 1 next week, and I can’t wait to learn more info on how to raise a great pup. Thank you to everyone at WAGD!

The training area was well setup and the people were friendly. Though, we took the puppy biting course and it was very short. The class went by so fast it felt like it never even started. I think a 60 minute class with a break in the middle would be better than 45 minutes. Overall not bad though and may visit again someday.

We rescued a dog who needs a little TLC to bring out her best personality. We're currently in Manners 1 and she's learning all the basics for being a great dog - sit, leash walking, recall, stay, etc. Our trainer, Dan, is terrific. He's very positive and helpful. The store at the front of the facility is full of dog food, treats and training materials. I highly recommend.

Great facility with several training areas and a nice shopping area. The trainers are FANTASTIC!!! Really able to read dog language and teach individually. Has helped my dog gain confidence and made our walks enjoyable. Highly recommend!!!

So happy with our experiences at WAGD in Richardson. Shelby, Our trainer for Manners 1, has been amazing. She is so patient with great methods based on positive reinforcement; she really understands dogs and shares great tips on how to help your dog learn good behavior. It's been amazing to see how much my dog Nora has improved in a short period of time; Shelby's methods have really improved home life for us and especially our other dog and 3 catsI was especially impressed with their approach to the COVID shutdown; offering online training and when they reopened their professional approach has really shown through. As always the facility is spotless, everyone is wearing masks, providing hand sanitizer and maintaining social distancing. It is apparent they really care about the health and safety of their clients.

What A Great Training Facility! WAGD is my favorite place to take classes with my dogs, they helped me train one of my dogs to win several ribbons in Rally, and I'm getting ready to graduate another dog from Manners into Agility. The facility is clean and attractive, instructors are knowledgeable, and the retail shop is great. I bought some treats that my picky dog decided he didn't want, and they took them back even after I opened, for a full refund. Can't wait to return!

But they do have a list of people that the company trusted to have all refer customers to proper trainers. But the employee I talk to at this place was very kind and helpful for me getting the proper trainer I needed to help me integrate my two females with my young male puppy.

I’ve been taking agility classes at What A Great Dog with Jody Lolich for many years. I highly recommend What A Great Dog to everyone who asks. WAGD is a positive reinforcement training facility, which is something I feel very strongly about. There are So many different options for classes that will help strengthen the bond between you and your pet. The agility facility is awesome, with turf surface, and top of the line equipment. My dogs, Kenobi and Gromit are always so excited when we pull into the parking lot here because they love it so much. Both Kenobi and Gromit have been very successful in the agility world, and I attribute a large amount of our success to my instruction at What A Great Dog. Jody is an amazing instructor, she has helped me develop training and handling skills necessary for competing at the highest levels of this sport. Both of my dogs have competed at many national events and international events representing the USA, an accomplishment I never would have imaged possible before taking classes with Jody at What A Great Dog. Whether you are experienced or just starting out there is a class for you at WAGD!

Love this facility! I started with my pup in Manners 1 with instructor Jean May. Now we are almost done with Manners 1 and about to move on to Manners 2! My doggo is very rowdy, so watching her really grow and become a more confident dog is amazing!Additionally, the store has tons of healthy and exciting toys, treats, and food. Kona likes to go pick out a fun treat from the "raw bar" after she finishes a class.I am very excited to sign up for Manners 2. We will be using the same instructor, Jean May, because she has been so amazing and patient with my crazy girl.

If you're looking for dog training of ANY kind, look no further than WAGD. I've been training my Aussie there dating back to when they were just a small building up in Prosper. Obedience classes are a great way to build foundational behaviors for your dog early on. The Canine Good Citizen certifications are a great way to reinforce that. Where WAGD REALLY shines is their Agility classes. We're so lucky in Frisco to be able to train with Jody Lolich, who herself competes at an international level, so you won't find a more experienced and credible trainer that knows how to push you and your dog to develop into a real team while making it extremely enjoyable and rewarding along the way. In summary....if you have a dog......stop by WAGD and check it out. It'll be worth your time.

Great facility, clean and well-organized! I live too far away to be able to take full advantage of the agility training that is offered at WAGD, but whenever I can, I try to schedule a class and lesson with Jody Lolich. She does a great job of encouraging you to try new things and expand your skills. I especially enjoy her seminars! The turf is great and the equipment first-class. I would encourage anyone interested in agility to check out the agility classes at WAGD.

Perfect spot for agility class! Turf and equipment are amazing. I train with Jody Lolich and she has helped us take our game up to another level. We not only train on challenging courses but learn the skills necessary to conquer them in the ring! Her experiences on teams abroad enrich our experiences in class and at our own competitions locally.

Love being able to train agility in a climate controlled facility with awesome turf with an excellent instructor. So very glad we have this facility! It is awesome to be able to train all year, in all weather. Thanks to Jody Lolich for always being willing to help problem solve when an issue crops up. Maverick, Charm and I are so glad we're able to train at WAGD Frisco.

I signed up for a Puppy Socialization class but for some reason I had the wrong time on my calendar. I also had a very specific time on my calendar so I'm not sure where the mix up happened. I called them to see if I can go to another session and they were totally inflexible - I would lose my $15 and had to pay another $15 for a 30-min play session! I understand that it's my fault, but what a way to turn off a new customer. Thanks for nothing.Edit: The owner reached out and made things right. Maybe I just talked to the wrong person on the phone but I'm glad the owner made things better. I'm excited to begin puppy classes and will update later!Edit again: 5 stars. I needed to make sure that I give this place its deserved rating. I’m very impressed with the training class. The trainer Diane is very knowledgeable and attentive. On the first day they passed out welcome bags along with a quality training guide/workbook. The class is very structured and intimate (less than 10 puppies I think). Love this place! I will signing up for more classes after my puppy graduates Manners 1 😁

So far we really like What A Great Dog! We've gone through 3 different Puppy Socialization classes and they have helped so much in my puppy's confidence around other dogs and people. We're planning on starting the Manners 1 class soon! We also love all of the toys and treats they have in the storefront and he has really enjoyed the puzzle toys we've gotten him to flex those brain muscles! All of the staff are super friendly and welcoming and seem to love their job and it shows in their work and how they deal with their customers (both human and furry!)

Took my puppy here for a pre-class evaluation. The staff were really helpful in directing me towards the best classes and services to fit my needs and my dog, and it was all free!I also needed a new harness and leash, so I decided to browse their selection, and a staff member pointed me towards the Sense-ation front-clip harness, and HOLY. LORD. Life changer. My rating of this fantastic harness is a different review for a different website, but I am so appreciative of the help and one-on-one attention the staff gave us as we looked around. Without them, I would still be languishing in the barren lands of backclip harnesses.

I have been attending the puppy manners class at the Richardson training facility, and I have to say, I am very impressed with the structured, positive, and clean environment! I have previous experience with training a dog in a CGC, therapy, agility, and rally, and I have continued to learn new things each time I attend class. They provide you with a book that outlines the step-by-step instructions on what was worked on in class. I find this very helpful, as it can be hard to remember every step and activity worked on. They also provide you with lots of other goodies throughout the sessions! The store also carries high quality foods, treats, chews, and toys to purchase. I will certainly sign up for another class!

And to my delight, my dogs not only love the bully sticks, topples, & rocking bowl, these items corrected the problems I had with my new pup. We are super excited to attend puppy socialization & manners class. Maureen (30yrs of expertise) explains & trains with ease. Life is so much better now that my pup isn't biting my fingers off😂😂 Thank you WAGD!!!

She has also completed the first 2 levels of nose work, the therapy dog prep course, passed the CGC, and now has the opportunity to be in an ongoing manner class so we can pass the CGCA! The trainers are very knowledgeable and I have seen great improvement in my doggo since going here. The trainers provide you with all the tools you need to get the behaviors you desire from your dog. They also offer various workshops on enrichment, grooming, and more!

this dog training center helped our family dog, Dash. a 6 month old Maltese puppy, learn basic manners and good behaviors. I think that he graduated very well from the manners 1 program, and we will start taking the manners 2 program starting next January. however, I would state that I sometimes wish that some of the trainers had extra 1 on 1 time with the dogs individually to address certain issues, because Dash sometimes randomly barks at people that he thinks they look suspicious and is going to harm him, but they are not. I did take the survey at the end of manners 1, but I will see how manners 2 goes, and will be coming back for higher level classes, I am overall satisfied with what Dash has improved on.

Best place ever to make YOUR puppy a GREAT DOG! You won't believe the results and how easy they are to achieve when you have a trainer who really knows what they're doing. We went through "manners 1" and "manners 2" and would recommend any new puppy owner to at least take these two classes! They also do agility training and several other types of training and can do private lessons, especially for " behavior problems". Love this place!

A few weeks ago, I participated in two Agility Fun Runs at What a Great Dog! This was the first time my 15 month old dog, Toby, had the opportunity to do agility at a place other than where he'd been trained. It was overwhelming for him. He was afraid of things he hadn't seen before and reactive to the other dogs. It could have been a bad experience for both of us if it weren't for Megan. She was so patient with us and very generous with her time and suggestions on how to help him through the challenges. I love my dog but was at a loss on how to deal with the reactivity. His well being is more important to me than how he does in agility - or any other sport. Megan had the exact same perspective and helped me throw parties for Toby, for even the smallest accomplishments. She made it fun for him and helped me relax. While we didn't accomplish much with respect to agility - we made tremendous progress in how we work together. Thank you Megan and Thank you What a Great Dog.
