Wonder Trainer 
Kira is Wonder Puppy’s newest edition, joining the team in 2016. Her passions include working with the herding, sporting, and working breeds, and she has experience in competition obedience and agility with her own dogs. Kira has been working with dogs since her teenage years when her pups, Opus, a senior Beagle, and Brody, an Australian Cattle Dog, inspired her to learn more about canine body language and effective interspecies communication. More recently, she enjoyed working with goats on commercial farms before moving back home to Portland and building a career working with dogs. Kira now lives in SE Portland with her partner, a school of fish, and their two canine companions - a sweet Pointer mix, Dax and an eager Miniature American Shepherd, Bear.

WoGo®Social Puppy is the most important first class you will ever take with your puppy! In this class, you will have two trainers to assist you through the process of early socialization. It includes play, relaxation, connection with you around other puppies, and worldly socialization exercises. It's called WoGo because it balances the "go-go-go" with "whoa"... slow down, connect with me, and relax. It teaches your puppy how to soften her mouth, build self confidence, and develop impulse control ...and teaches you and your puppy how to speak dog! There is an emphasis on parent education to show you what to do if your puppy becomes nervous or overly-excited, and to ensure that your dog can be trusted in social situations. First-time attendees receive a socialization assessment and will be given a copy to take home. Classes are by size: Tiny Tykes (up to 12lbs), Little Tykes (12-25lbs), & Big Tykes (25-55lbs)
