Here at Praising Paws we offer positive reinforcement training to help your dog be the member of your family you’ve always wanted. Like our saying goes… We want to help you praise the paws you love! And that is truly our goal. Whether you need help in training your new puppy, help to potty train your new puppy, socialize your new puppy, or work with an older dog (there’s no such thing as too old!!!), a newly adopted dog, a foster you’re working with, or whatever the need… we are here to help.
~ We can also help you train your dog to get involved in Therapy work where they visit nursing homes or children’s hospitals etc…
~ We can help you with training your dog to do Emotional Support work.
~ We can help you train your dog, or help you find one to train, for doing Service Dog work. Service dogs can be incredibly expensive and we want to help you in training your own if you have medical issues such as Bipolar, Anxiety, OCD, Autism, Aspergers, mobility issues, Fibromyalgia or other chronic pain illnesses, etc…
~ I am a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator with the AKC and can help you get your dog ready for the test and can provide the test when you’re ready for your dog to take it.
~ I am also a Certified Pet Evaluator with Therapy Pets Unlimited and can help you with testing for your dog to become a therapy dog with TPU.
