Dog Training Resources

A well trained dog is a pleasure to have as part of your family, which is why we recommend three local positive reinforcement trainers.  Get ready to create a strong foundation for life with your dog. Please contact these trainers directly for more information.

Training classes and in-home sessions, Michelle does it all. Does your dog bark to be let out? Scratch or nudge you for attention? Or “invite” himself onto your lap when you are “neglecting” him? Turns out sometimes dogs can be just as good at training their humans! This might seem cute at first, but it’s their way of telling YOU what to do. If gone unchecked, can lead to some pretty undesirable (and hard to fix) behaviors. We all know someone who has a dog who “runs the house,” so to speak. Contact Michelle to end these bad behaviors. Classes held at Friendly Paws Sunday afternoons.
