free pre-enrollment consultation
At the pawsitive dog, we feel that what we do before your dog's training starts is almost as important as the training itself. That's why we schedule a personalized, pre-enrollment consultation for you & your dog.

Our free, no-obligation, one-on-one consult allows you (and your dog, of course!) the opportunity to begin your training journey at no pressure, no cost.  A lot goes on during this 45-minute scheduled appointment.  You'll see where + dog canine stars are born, meet with us, become familiar with our philosophies and methods and discuss both your immediate needs as well as your long-term goals.  The consultation also gives professional + dog faculty trainers a chance to evaluate each dog, your unique situation, and help you focus on achievable results that realistically complement your dog's lifelong potential.

Based on the information learned during the consultation from both human and canine, together, we develop a start-up strategy that best meets your needs, whether it's one program or a combination of several options.  Rate of speed, comfort level and class schedule are all determined by your learning style, lifestyle and your dog's progress as well as the desired outcome. Start-up strategies are assessed and re-assessed throughout your training journey so we may make additions or subtractions based on the progress of your team and the changes in your life.

Due to our high retention rate and constant demand, as well as our interest in maintaining a personalized training facility dedicated to dedicated dog owners, we are  frequently booking consultations  2 -3 months out. Can't wait ? We encourage all prospective students who are in need of immediate assistance to consider jump starting their + dog experience by enrolling in one of our creative options:


Scheduling a consultation requires a nominal credit card deposit of $99 which is automatically reimbursed after your consult. Should you forget your appointment altogether or provide us with less than 48-hour notice of cancellation, we regret that your $99 deposit cannot be reimbursed.

Interested in a pre-enrollment consultation but looking for exact class schedules and tuition first?  We'd love to answer those questions. However, because each canine & human partnership is unique, almost every client enrolls in something slightly different. Our free pre-enrollment consultation is designed to determine your training path and give you the chance to review the schedules and pricing structures of the program(s) that are most appropriate for you and your dog.

We look forward to speaking with you over the phone, meeting you in person and doing what we do best --- working together to help you and your dog develop an enjoyable lifelong partnership. See how the pawsitive dog can be part of your networking team and give you the training results you've been searching for!  Click here to contact us today!

Here's what one successful + dog client had to say about her consultation…

"We brought our six month old French Bulldog for an evaluation at The Pawsitive Dog shortly after bringing him home, at the recommendation of several of our neighbors. While my fiancé grew up having dogs as pets, I was rather terrified of them (now you know whose idea it was to get a dog in the first place). I will be the very first to admit that I had no idea what to expect, both as a dog owner and in training classes.

"Jenifer and Breslin put us all at ease nearly immediately. Both have taken the time to get to know us, to evaluate and form a bond with Clark, and to really understand our unique dynamic. It's rather possible that Jenifer trained me even more effectively than she trained Clark."
—Elizabeth E.
