Over 80% of the dogs in shelters have been given up due to basic training issues. It's easy to feel overwhelmed when you have a dog who is constantly jumping, nipping, barking, pulling on the leash, and seems to have selective hearing. Shari can help you take back your control and help you teach your dog what you expect of them in every social situation.

PAWS prides ourselves on using positive reinforcement, coupled with perfect timing, communication, and the right kind of motivators. We deliver the precise balance of rewards versus correction in a way that will never be harsh or physically harmful to your dog. We teach you how to play the necessary "mind games" to guide your dog through their learning process. Shari is passionate about what she does and it shows through her enthusiasm and her ability to get results. PAWS wants to set you up for success!

When things go horribly awry with your pet's behavior, PAWS can help you with aggression, anxiety, or other behavioral issues.

Socialization classes offer more than just play.  They help your dog learn boundaries with other dogs, of all sizes, and with humans. PAWS offers this class every Saturday morning at 10 am! .

Our workshops can help you get a handle on individual behavioral issues like walking on a leash, separation anxiety, manners, Stay, and many more. 

PAWS offers classes for all levels of obedience. Puppy 101, Basic 101, High School, College, Nosework, and private sessions to name a few!
