How we work

Training your dog

I presume you are here because you and your pooch are have had a breakdown in the relationship between you… or neither managed to build one in the first place; probably because the behaviours that your dog is showing are not what you want to live with.

The number one reason in the UK that dogs are relinquished to shelters or re-homed is due to behaviour problems.

At Paws Positive, we don’t train your dog ourselves. This would be futile, as when you took over the helm, the dog would probably revert back to his old ways.

Instead, we train YOU to train your dog.

Once you have learned the techniques from us, you can continue to teach your dog throughout the days or weeks between classes or training sessions.

This is important, since – contrary to popular belief – dogs don’t get fixed in class; they need 24/7 dog training. Your dog will continue to learn by itself, whether you are part of the process or not! Trouble is, left to its own devices it will more than likely learn behaviours you really DON’T want.

Instead, we will show you how training is fun and easy to fit in with your lifestyle, using three-minute games – to get the outcomes you DO want.

So how does paws positive itself operate?
