I am so pleased with the training we started with Get Pawsitive. They responded so quickly and provided such individualized training. We are off to a great pawsitive start. Thank you!Mar 8, 2017Verified
Sarah showed great patience with our anxious puppy. We are looking toward to continuing training. Her assistant Kelly was also great!!Feb 22, 2017Verified
My dog needed aggression training. This basically means training the owner. Beth did a very good job going out with us and showing me what to do or not to do. So far my dog and I are doing quite well.Feb 12, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A brief phone call or conversation via email is ideal so we can get a good understanding of what their goals are for training- whether group or private. For private training, we have an extensive consultation form so we can obtain as much history on the dog, activities and relationships with family members as possible. This allows for a smooth consultation where we can maximize our time spent on hands on training and discussion.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All trainers have at least one of the following: Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner Certified Professional Dog Trainer Animal Behavior College
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Always be sure to do your homework! Read testimonials or ask for references and credentials. Be sure you go with your gut and what is in your dog's best interest. Some may claim they use 100% positive reinforcement but they indeed use many corrections and aversive methods- NOT NECESSARY! It IS possible to train a dog without using intimidation, coercion and fear! Pay me now, or pay me later. Cheaper isn't always better. :)
