Mission Statement

To save canine lives in the following ways:

 1.  To prevent the canine being returned to a shelter because of behavioral issues.  
 2.  When the leash breaks and the dog runs toward a busy road, an obedience cue/compliance will save a life.


In Addition;  have fun while learning more than basic obedience; learn how to have an outstanding companion dog.  Become a dog whisper/listener.
 
For contact information or to schedule an appointment, scroll toward the bottom of the page.

Dog Training, and correcting behavior issues with a positive approach- so that living with your pet is a pleasure:  That is what Pawsitive Thinking is about.

 

Training includes not only how you learn to be a good leader of your pack, but also teaches your dog how to be a well-mannered, good citizen.  Cues (obedience commands) are simple to learn and fun to practice.  Teaching our dogs our language should be more that sit, stay, heel and recall.   It should be the foundation of a loving relationship with a dog that is in BALANCE (Happy).

 

Training includes:  The cues - Watch me, Sit, Down, Stay, Recall (come), Wait, Leave it, Drop it,  Heel, No pull walking, and Proper Elimination behavior.  We also learn to stop unwanted behaviors like jumping, biting, inappropriate chewing, digging, barking and separation anxiety.   Basic, intermediate and advanced training is offered.

 

With years of experience, I have helped all sizes and breeds of dogs learn good behavior.

 

My specialties in behavior modification include:  Aggression- dog to dog and dog to human, excessive fearfulness as well as excessive barking, separation anxiety, running away, jumping, and pulling.

 

If you are tired of your dog's problem behavior, come have some fun and learn to enjoy your dog, and your dog will learn to become a model citizen.

 

 
******************
The Pawsitive Thinking methodology:
