the pawsitive dog's the pawsitive dog's multidimensional training classes are based on a combined 30+ years of full-time dog training experience.  Instead of a quick-fix approach to dog training, we look at the overall picture to develop a strategy that meets each and every one of your needs – ensuring an enjoyable, lifelong partnership. Designed to simultaneously educate both you and your dog, we take the time to do it right - 24 hours a day, every single day. 

By learning to think and talk "dog," our in-depth curriculum helps you communicate more effectively while building confidence in each other and enhancing your bond as a unique team. We do our best to accommodate our clients' work schedules, lifestyles, learning styles and their dogs' individual needs. Based on our free one-on-one consultation, dog owners are invited to participate in traditional classes, day school, intensive one-day seminars, accelerated overnight training, in-kennel training, home visits or any combination of all six.

Traditional classes take a conventional approach of weekly or bi-weekly classes (private, semi-private or group) while supplemental day school consists of school days for the dog along with regularly scheduled classes for the dog/owner team.  

Our intensive one-day seminars or accelerated overnight training program may be for you if you're looking for a super-fast start-up program before jumping into any one of our traditional class program options.

Home visits offer yet another way to supplement traditional class programs or get you started on the right paw by bringing the expertise of a professional + dog trainer right into your own home, neighborhood or dog park.

Camp + dog provides your dog with a consistent continuation of + dog training in a real-life environment 24-hours a day, even when you're out of town.

Whatever your goals, our exceptional programs ensure success. + dogs and their owners agree, training at the pawsitive dog is really something to 'bark' about!

Here's what one + dog student had to say about our well rounded training classes …



"We continue to return almost daily to + dog (camp, school, and class) because of the quality of the staff, the friendly classmates (human and canine), and most importantly, because Harley loves it! Thanks to + dog, our slightly rambunctious, high energy, and very smart pooch, has become the brilliant, snuggly, and loving family member we knew he could be." --- Josie E.
