Paula Shimko is proud to be Pittsburgh's first Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP)

I use positive reward-based training, as taught at KPA, which is based on the science of how dogs learn.


It is an effective and gentle way to teach dogs what we would like them to do in order for them to live with us in a happy and structured way. Instead of focusing and correcting the dog on what we don't want them to do, we teach them what we want them to do.

My mission is to help owners and their dogs work together as a well structured and happy team. I believe that using positive reinforcement and force free training is the only way to train an animal.
I want my dogs to have complete trust that I am going to keep them safe and happy. Training with positive reinforcement methods helps me build that trust. Training should be fun for both you and your dog. If your dog is excited to learn and he is being rewarded, then the behaviors we teach will happen over and over again.

Every dog deserves a great trainer.
