Paws for Praise​

Professional Dog Training and Behavior Consulting

Call Us !


If you’re  like us, you love your dogs and want the best for them. Dog training is an unregulated profession, so it's especially important that the dog trainer you select is actually qualified to provide evidence-based training that will help your dog learn without damaging your relationship.
​Paws for Praise is a founding member of the Pet Professional Guild and your head instructor is certified with the Pet Professional Accreditation Board, one of only two independent testing bodies in the USA.

We serve:

If you are outside our area, and need a referral to a pet professional in your area, let us know. We may be able to help you find a well educated, qualified trainer.

Thank you for considering Paws for Praise.
