Pawsitive Training for Better Dogs

Pawsitive Training for Better Dogs

Basic Obedience

Basic obedience dogs

Pawsitive Training's™ private obedience courses are fun, affordable, and convenient.

Training takes place in your own home, where you and your dog are the most comfortable.  You and your dog will never miss out on any training!

Our obedience courses are not just for your dog.  You, as the owner, are actually the primary student!  In short, our goal is to inspire and teach you how to understand and train your dog in a way that is positive, fun, and exciting for everyone!

Our obedience courses are not just for your dog. You, as the owner, are actually the primary student!

Each session lasts approximately 60 minutes.  We work at your dog's pace.  You make the choice of using either clicker training or positive reinforcement without the use of a clicker.  Learn about how clicker training works. We do not use choke or prong-collars.  

Private training in your home is done off-leash.  This allows your dog to make the decision to want to work with you - not because he's tethered at your side.  On-leash work doesn't start until your dog has a concept of the first basic obedience commands, such as "sit" and "down".  All outdoor training will be done on-leash, except if you have access to a private, enclosed yard.  

If your puppy is under the age of 16 weeks old, then our Pawsitive Puppy Kindergarten will be better suited for your pup.
