What Our Clients Say About Us
Barnaby cowered when anyone tried to pet him, was afraid of his doggy-door and loud noises, and had separation anxiety. He would hear a dog bark or see a person walk in front of the house and go nuts. He lunged and bit a few dogs and even some family members. We went through a few trainers and began to think that nothing could be done. Troy helped Barnaby learn to be off leash and coexist around other dogs and people! Barnaby began sniffing and actually playing with other dogs like a normal, well adjusted dog! He is a calmer, happier dog. Thank you Troy! ~ Darryl & Betty Oesterle
We started training sessions with Troy for our dog Hobbit and we are so impressed with Troy's knowledge, commitment, insight and techniques! He spends as much time educating us as he does Hobbit and we always leave feeling good about what we've learned and look forward to the next session. Thank you Troy for making this world a better place for dogs and their owners! You are the best! ~ Jan & John Petrie
I was having problems with my French bulldog, Zara, her interactions with other dogs, listening to commands, staying off furniture, and walking on a leash. I met with Troy and right away he was able to calm Zara down. I was amazed by how quickly Zara responded to him. Troy was very imformative, discussing dog behaviors and how we affect their behavior. Zara stayed with Troy for 3 weeks and what a difference it made! Now Zara listens to me and she also comes to work with me everyday. Im very happy and I recommend Paws to Train your Dog for any dog! ~ Abby Abdelfattah
Why Training Your Dog is Important
The day you bring a dog into your home, your dog is learning every moment, with or without your guidance. What may appear as cute puppy behaviors now may not be cute later when your pup grows into a dog. Without clear communication, dogs can become anxious and confused about what is expected of them. Without proper mental stimulation they can become bored and destructive. As dogs become more desperate to understand how to live peacefully with you, their behaviors can make you crazy.
Common behavior problems include chewing and destroying furniture or your favorite shoes, getting into the trash, urinating or leaving "deposits" in your home, digging up the yard, stealing food or clothing, running zoomies, jumping, humping, chasing, bolting out the door, whining or barking incessantly, not coming when called, not laying down and being quiet, pulling on the leash, difficulty getting along with dogs or people.
Know that your dog is not trying to give you a hard time, but infact is just having a hard time and needs your help. Our training programs will help your dog learn to listen to you, trust and respect you, and be a well-behaved and trusted member of your family.
