Professional Dog Trainer That Gets Results

Dogs can add so much to our lives, but when your dog displays unwanted behaviors or simply isn’t responsive to commands, it’s time to consider dog training classes with a friendly professional.

You can always try the big pet store group classes, but many of our customers have tried that and you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that dog training methods between you and your dog (and a trainer) are the most effective methods of training available.

At Pup’s & Paws Dog Training, we only use reward based training which is a much more effective way to train a dog than punishment based approaches. We change dog behavior by reinforcing good behavior. Your dog learns in a joyful way that helps bond you and your dog together.

The goal of Pups & Paws is to ensure that every dog owner I work with has a well-behaved, obedient dog that is happy and free of behavioral problems. Too many dog owners are dissatisfied with their uncontrollable dogs and, rather than seeking training to address the issue, they either quit walking their dogs altogether or steer clear of challenging situations like being near other dogs, eating in the dog’s presence, or overly coddling them.

Without training, situations like this usually make the dog that much more challenging. It may be a downward spiral, and we are determined to break it. We teach the dog to stop misbehaving and show you how to preserve your dog’s excellent conduct using my well-proven teaching and training techniques.

This results in a strong owner-dog bond and guarantees that the training sticks. Together, we introduce structure and discipline to train your dog to be courteous and obedient. My techniques cover teaching fundamental and advanced obedience as well as dealing with behavioral concerns. I always make sure that the training sessions are pleasant as well as productive because training should be enjoyable for both the owner and the dog.

  • Dog training together with dog owner

Why It’s Important to Train Your Dog

A well-trained dog contributes to a contented and peaceful home. Physical activity, mental exercise, and conversation are the three things a dog needs to be happy. The role of training in communication is crucial. Dogs must be aware of both the rules and who’s in charge. Lack of structure makes them easily confused, which typically results in undesirable behaviors. Your dog should be walking by your side when you’re out on a stroll, not six feet in front of you. By doing so, unneeded conflicts between other dogs will be reduced. Your dog should automatically wait for you to let him through a door when you approach one.

Your dog should ask you for permission before eating food that you drop on the floor and shouldn’t jump up on visitors when they are over. Ground rules will be established through basic obedience training, which will also help to remove undesirable habits while fostering positive ones. Communication will have been established when your dog realizes that while you are his friend and supporter but are still in charge. It’s true that a well-trained dog is a happy dog.

Virtual Dog Training
