Meet Matt Wiggins - Director and Principal Dog Trainer
Matt’s interest in dog training began nearly 20 years ago with his own particularly awkward pet German Shepherd. He learnt his craft initially as a hobby which developed quickly into a dedicated career in dog training and behaviour. He developed his skills, knowledge and techniques with a passion for achieving what some would deem impossible with various breeds and associated behaviours.
With many positive testimonials and feedback from his peers in the Police force and other recognised authorities in the dog training sector, he created WKD Trained Dogs. Working hands on with the whole team on a daily basis, Matt continues to develop and oversee training while liaising with clients to provide them with the perfect trained companion. Now over 3000 successfully trained dogs later, he is taking his knowledge phenomenal training programs online using real people and real dogs getting real results, in record time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a purely positive training course?
We absolutely don't beleive in labels. At WKD we beleive the best method, is the one that works.
Many of our customers over the last 10 years come to see us after seeing a variety of trainers, behviourists, dog psychologists and other gurus only to have invested time and money to no success.
Our approach is to get you find the best most efficient way to motivate your dog to do what is asked of it rather than battle with the wrong behaviours consistently. We think it is ethically wrong to have a dog that pulls consistently for the 8-15 years of its life rather than add the minimum amount of pressure and reward during training to have it walking on a loose lead ongoing.
Our training videos are all over social media and our many customer reviews support this approach, which is why we are confident this training course will get you and your dog to the right place to enjoy your time together.
Do I need any special equipment?
We reccommend using a collar with a tight loose function and a long lead - around 2 metres.
The reasons for this are in over 3000 successfuly trained dogs a tight loose collar, fitted and used correctly is the most efficient and beneficial collar for use in training. When correctly fitted it is perfectly suited to an on off signal when making the dog aware it needs to adjust it's behaviour.
Whilst to some it may seem controversial, for us it's ethically better to have a dog using a tight loose collar on a loose lead, than to have a dog pulling constantly putting pressure on it's body through a flat collar, harness or other tool for the rest of it's life.
A long lead is important because with our training we get your dog to a place whereby it is paying attention to you rather than have a tight lead to signal it. Your dog must be walking on a nice loose lead before we can move you onto off lead recall for example.
Why should I pay for this vs cheaper alternatives?
Put simply, you get what you pay for.
Also if you can get Ifetime Access &100% guaranteed results with a money-back offer for less the, we'd love to see it!
Our customers regualarly tell us the extreme amounts of time and money invested in other proffessional training only to have no success we think it's wrong to have someone commit to a product or join a long term subscription without getting the results they signed up for.

How much time do I need to spend to see results?
Our courses are built to replicate our Results Guaranteed 3 Hours One to One Training Consultations, so ideally you'd complete the practical side of the course and see results in as little as a few hours.
We then give you a tailored plan to embed the bahaviours at specific growing interval to reduces skillfade in you and the dog.

If you have followed our Online Dog Training Courses, used our included reviews and direct communications with our Pro Trainers and still can't get the training to work....We'll issue a full refund. FACT.

"...two years and over £1500 spent on classes....After 10 minutes, both our dogs were walking past other dogs without issue"
After two years and over £1500 spent on classes, trainers and home visits, we were getting to the end of our tether!...After 10 minutes, both our dogs were walking past other dogs without issue. In addition, we stopped the incessant barking and growling at visitors!..18 months ago we couldn’t manage having visitors and we never EVER thought we’d have our dogs off the lead! We can’t recommend Matt and his training enough! Thank you so much! :)
