About Wagfield

Wagfield’s mission is to help enrich, and even save dogs lives, by offering affordable, accessible, best-in-class socialization and training solutions. Our online training classes cover the full spectrum of skills needed to make for happy, well-adjusted new family members.

Wagfield is committed to corporate social responsibility and strives to positively impact the dog community. We see ourselves as part of the animal welfare effort in seeking to address shelter relinquishment, overpopulation and preventable euthanasia. We know that behavioral problems are the number one reason given when dogs are relinquished to shelters, so our goal is to enable every pet parent to access trusted, complete, force-free, science-based training and socialization content whenever and wherever they want. By removing location, scheduling, quality trainer availability and price barriers, we believe that more dogs will get trained, and stay happily in their homes.
