Why Paws First?

Planning on bringing home a new four legged addition to your family? Not sure what is the best method of Basic Obedience Training? We can help!

We provide Positive Reinforcement Training using praise and/or treats to reward your dog for doing something you want him to do. Because the reward makes him more likely to repeat the behavior, positive reinforcement is one of your most powerful tools for shaping or changing your dog’s behavior.
