More classes will be added as they become available
Puppy Pre-school 8-14 weeks
Puppies will learn the world is a safe place to live. The human part of the team will learn how to lay down a successful foundation of behaviors. The behaviors taught are sit down, recall, leave it, and drop. We will also do vet and grooming conditioning, so visits are not scary. Every week we will have playtime using interactive equipment. We will also test for AKC Star Puppy Award
This class was designed to build on the puppy’s foundation behaviors and to build confidence. Each class will be behavior instruction and interactive play. The puppies will learn basic foundations if this is their first class and puppies that have already learned the basics will build duration, distraction, and distance with their behaviors.
5 month and up Basic Foundation
This class is designed to teach solid impulse control. Adolescence is the most difficult time the human handler will have with their dog. Teens are teens no matter the species. We will teach teens and adult dogs how to train within a classroom with other dogs no matter the ages. We will concentrate on both behavior and training the behaviors needed for impulse control and good choices from the class dogs. We can also test for the AKC Good Citizens Award
I contacted Paula after 3 failed attempts with other trainers and training facilities. My Zoey is a pit mix who is very fearful. By the end of our sessions Zoey took a walk around the block with Paula and me. I NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS expected Zoey to be able to do that. THANKS PAULA FOR ALL YOUR HELP

I would highly recommend the services of Paula's Dog Services. She was very knowledgable of positive reinforcement, rewarding, and classical conditioning.She also provided handouts and books. In addition, she is very reasonably priced. I would use her again in the future, without hesitation.
