Choose the Training Class that's Best for
You and Your Dog

I would love to teach you how to train your dog through positive reinforcement utilizing fun and games to build the bond and relationship with your dog!

Positive reinforcement dog training, also referred to as force-free, reward-based, or clicker training, is a method that focuses on telling your dog when he is correct, instead of only pointing out what is incorrect.

Ma & Paw Paws offers both private consultations and lessons and group classes.

For Private Training Lessons, I conduct a "Meet and Greet" at the parent's home to learn and better understand the individual owner and fur babies' needs.


Group classes are held at the Rockwell Park Pavilion.

Payment for all training classes are required to be paid in advance before the start of the first class.

There are no refunds for Group classes after you attend the first class.


Please Note: There is a minimum of 3 dogs and a maximum of 7 per class.

Please contact me directly or click-on the "green" icon under each class which will take you to our calendar page. There you can view when the next available class you are interested in is scheduled and to register for that class.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Family Dog Manners II/
CGC Prep Class

(required by all therapy dog tests)

This is an advanced level class focusing on the behaviors required to pass the Canine Good Citizen test.

Dogs learn to walk nicely on leash, sit-stay with distractions, come when called, and greet other dogs politely.

The CGC is the basis for all of the various therapy dog tests so a good start if you are working to become a therapy dog.

Family Manner I or equivalent is a pre-requisite.

 
A CGC test will be scheduled at the end of the session.

Please Note: There is a minimum of 3 dogs and a maximum of 7 per class.

Focusing on Focus

This class will Focus on getting your dog to pay attention to you.

The exercises taught in this class will help you refocus a highly distractible dog or a dog that has fear aggression.

Teaching your dog to focus helps with leash manners, dog sports, reactivity and excessive barking.

Teach your god that the job it gets paid for is to pay attention.

For dogs over a year old that have had basic training.

This is a 6-week class.

Please Note: There is a minimum of 3 dogs and a maximum of 7 per class.
