Waggie is the highest rated dog training school in Singapore with over 1.6K "5 Star" Google reviews. Our customer accolades are unparalleled and testament to our excellent track record.


At Waggie, we conduct private lessons and group classes. We highly recommend group classes for best results because you and your dog get to experience real-life distractions and better motivation levels in a class environment. For the best of both worlds, you can add on a few private lessons to get the one-to-one attention you need for specific dog training concerns.

Our basic dog obedience course will cover all behavioural problems such as toilet/potty training, chewing problems, barking problems, biting and dog aggression. By the end of the 10-week course, you will also have mastered advanced “off leash” techniques where your dog will respond to basic obedience commands without being on the leash.



Dogs need to be trained to be socially acceptable in public places. Dog obedience training is especially important in a multi-racial country like Singapore.


Dog obedience training helps dog owners understand the fundamentals of dog behaviour to bond better with their canine friend.


Research shows that mental stimulation is important in keeping dogs happy and engaged. It helps to build confidence, alleviate boredom and reduce destructive behaviours.


Obedience training is a great way to build a strong bond with your dog. Training helps build mutual understanding, confidence and trust in both dogs and owners, which are key components of a positive and rewarding human-dog relationship.

However, you may think, my dog is so well-behaved, why does it need training? Training is not just for dogs who already have behavioural issues. Dog behaviours evolve over time and many owners experience issues as the dog matures between one to three years old. It is most effective to start training as early as possible before issues arise, so owners learn the necessary skills to pre-empt problems and nip undesirable behaviours early in the bud. For this reason, we recommend completing the basic obedience course as early as possible, instead of attempting to deal with one issue at a time. Remember that it is never too late to start training – the oldest dog we have trained was 14 years old. On a lighter side of things, the dog training sessions will also allow your furry friend to socialise with other dogs in the class and make friends!

Dear Patrick, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional dog training program you conducted over the past 10 weeks. Your expertise and dedication have made an immense difference in our lives and the training of our beloved Shiba Inu. From the very first session, we were impressed by your deep knowledge and passion for dog training. Your ability to communicate complex concepts in a simple and understandable manner made it easy for us to learn and implement the training techniques effectively. Despite how challenging Shiba Inus can be to train, your guidance and patience have been invaluable throughout the program. We are thrilled that our Shiba Inu, who was initially quite a challenge, was able to pass the training program with flying colors. We are incredibly proud to say that our furry friend secured a spot in the top 4 in the class. This accomplishment would not have been possible without your expert guidance and support. It was evident during the sessions that you have a unique ability to strike a balance between being strict and maintaining a sense of humor. Your lighthearted approach made the classes enjoyable and kept us motivated. We always looked forward to attending your sessions and experiencing the perfect blend of discipline and camaraderie. You created a relaxed and encouraging environment, which helped us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Once again, thank you for providing such a remarkable dog training program. We would highly recommend your services to anyone seeking professional and effective dog training. We truly enjoyed the sessions and will be forever grateful for the positive impact you have made on our furry friend's life. Caroline Tan (Shiba Inu - Ring)

Highly recommended basic dog obedience training course for any dog types - our cavapoo Tako has shown significant improvement since his first lesson - less anxiety, good heel walking and more focus / attention towards us. Patrick’s lessons have been greatly entertaining and he taught valuable skills that we will put to good use on Tako!

Dogs In TV & Film Productions

In the early days, animals were considered problematic in local film productions and so were barely seen on TV. This all changed when Patrick’s Border Collie, Waggie, was featured successfully in the 1998 TV drama “My Fair Ladies” alongside Zoe Tay, Aileen Tan & Jazreel Low.

Our Dog Shows & Event

Patrick is not only a dog trainer, but also a devoted organizer of dog shows and dedicated promoter of events. He is very prolific in dog shows that are educational, entertaining, comical and fun for the family. Every show is well supported by a large team to ensure every show is a successful one.
