Peaceful Paws Training Philosophy

Peaceful Paws Dog Training employs gentle, positive training methods. We take training from reactive to proactive by setting dogs up for success and rewarding them for it. The goal is not to simply control the behavior, but to change it for the better. Effective training is a two-way street of open communication. We will help you to understand how dogs communicate and learn, thus alleviating frustration and confusion on both ends of the leash. We will show you how to establish strong, yet benevolent leadership for a happier, more peaceful relationship for you and your dog.
