Participation not confirmed until payment received.
You'll learn to identify off-leash behavior, proper and improper play, fear behaviors and how to communicate so both pet and owner are happy. In other words, we will give you and your dog FILTERING & COPING SKILLS for what life throws your way.
Behavior issues are addressed before they become habituated inappropriate behaviors.
Pawsitive only does one level of classes which you are welcome to repeat. Each one is different depending on the owners, breed and ages.
A seminar I attended at Guelph presented a study showing that more than 60% of all dog owners never go beyond puppy class and end up seeking behavior help. I decided to try and meet that need as a mobile trainer to ease the burden of travel to and from for the client.
Everyone has different goals when they obtain their dog. Different classes and methods work for different owners and their dogs. Feel free to call and discuss, or refer to the reviews below and in the links above. A list of individuals to speak to directly is also available.
If you are interested in obedience competition or perfect sit-stays on leash, I'd be happy to refer you to some good trainers in the area who can take you to several levels of training for competition or just for your own enjoyment.
If you are interested in learning the basics, a dog that responds to you off leash early on, lots of social interaction and management, a dog that is invited over with you to friends rather than asked to stay home... those are my goals. To give you the Family Companion pet that is a part of your total family.
