Dog Obedience Training and Pet Sitting


Wishes and Wags, LLC was founded by Dawn Bissett Haidar in 2017. The Company offers private dog obedience training for dogs and pet sitting. The owner founded Wishes and Wags to operate with the highest ethical standards. We are fully bonded and insured.

Wishes and Wags understands that pets are very important members of your family, and sometimes, balancing the demands of everyday life can be challenging. Wishes and Wags wants to help pet parents build the strongest bonds possible with their pets as well as help pet parents care for their pets in time of need. Whether it is training or pet sitting, we understand that one size does not fit all. Every pet has individual needs. Age, daily routines, breed, health concerns, and even your pet’s specific likes and dislikes are very important considerations. We will work very hard to provide our human and furry clients with the best experience possible.

In addition, we offer discounted rates to our senior and elderly clients.  We are honored to offer services to residents of assisted living facilities. The elderly have a very special place in the owner’s heart, and she wants to help the residents of assisted living facilities keep their pets as long as possible.

First let me say - I LOVE MY JOB!  I started my life on a ranch.  Animals of all shapes and sizes were an important part of my life. I spent many years in Corporate America.   In 2017, I made the decision to change careers and work with animals full time.  In 2018, I became a certified dog obedience trainer.  The training program at Wishes and Wags will focus on helping families manage behaviors such as jumping, excessive barking, leash pulling, chewing, unruly behavior in the house, etc.  Sadly, these behaviors are some of the primary reasons pets are abandoned or surrendered to shelters and rescues. With that said, training and pet sitting can go hand in hand.  In my spare time, I volunteer at a wonderful no-kill shelter in Houston, Texas.  This shelter does an amazing job helping animals with age,  health, or behavior issues find forever homes.  I learn so much during each visit!

In 2011, my mother suffered a stroke.  Her journey impacted my decision to found Wishes and Wags (as well as the name).  Over the years, she told me many times how much she wished for a pet.  Due to my long work hours, I was unable to grant my mother's wish.  Many times, an assisted living resident is required to have the physical ability to care for a pet without assistance from staff.  She was not able to care for a pet on her own.  I hope I will have an opportunity to help a family member grant their loved one's wish by providing assistance when possible.
