To educate both humans and dogs alike by providing services that emphasize compassion, dedication, integration, enrichment, socialization, individual positive methodology, and unconditional love to expand the human-animal bond and animal-human bond by giving all a second chance to save a life and provide a forever home. We train using body language, and we treat each dog as an individual. Most of our training programs are custom designed to suit each dog and the desired outcome. We provide training in your home, so that your dog can learn in a comfortable environment, keeping the experience positive for all involved. In-home training allows our professional dog trainers to provide a consistent learning experience. We will coach you on how to provide quality interactions and leadership for your dog. Because no two dogs (or families) are alike, we'll create a training program that fits your specific needs. Best of all, we make learning positive and fun for you and your dog. After all, a well-behaved, educated dog equals a happy family, for life. We want each experience to be a great one, and we are sure that you and your dog will see the difference.
We take great pride in the excellent results we have achieved with dogs and their owners. We strongly believe in training and raising dogs to achieve their fullest potential while educating their human counterparts to do their best as well. The outcome of the dogs being right where the families needed them to be and it the unconditional love given and received in a positive manner to get them there.
Working Paws Training believes training should be individualized, not generalized.
Every dog is an individual and each one learns differently. What may work for one may not work for another. However the final results are the same: We teach, they listen, and you get rewarded with unconditional love.
They are very calm. They give us lots of good insights into our dog and how to work with him. We felt they understood him. They suggested we use puzzles to build his confidence and within 1 week he was much more confident around the house and people he did not know.
Very professional and knows what they are doing always recommend them to anyone that asks
Deborah and team have an incredible understanding of what makes a dog tick. They pay close attention and gave me confidence. I look forward to working with them
Both Deborah and Janelle are very knowledgeable and friendly. Their main focus is on the benefit and comfort of the dog and owner. They are always very friendly and they treat the dog with love and respect while being concerned with the wellbeing of the dog. They are a pleasure to work with.
Customer either calls or emails us and we get a brief description of what their needs are. We then set up an appointment for a home evaluation and then from the results of that we give a full recommedation of how to proceed.
