Obedience Boarding School: 
A Complete Dog Education

    I go way beyond the typical board and train program- your dog lives inside my home like a family member for a complete education that improves "the whole dog" with foundation socialization, home manners, everyday obedience commands and advanced offleash reliability. 
    Afterwards, I coach you to be an effective handler with my easy leadership system, giving you the confidence to fully enjoy your dog's new skills and connect with your pet on a deeper level. This ensures your investment is never wasted.
    Relevant, real-life training will reform your dog to become a true companion dog. Your dog builds skills through quality socialization with people & other dogs, plus public visits, in this personalized stay.
    Only 2 dogs per month are accepted into our family so I can spend extensive training time with each. You won't find another program like this! This program's skillset exceeds APDT's C.L.A.S.S. and AKC's CGC standards.

Top Paw Training uses Proven Reward-based Methods
The Power of Results-Based, Balanced Dog Training

    I use an experienced collection of techniques to teach your dog as an individual. Science, history and personal experience have indeed proven that reward-based teaching paired with effective discipline balances out communication so your dog will learn quickly and reliably. 
    My approach rewards early-learning with treats so your dog will become fluent at the new skills. Then we progress into real-life-scenarios to incorporate self-control skills and ensure your dog will obey even if he isn't motivated, so you won't have to rely on treats or bribes!
    You'll learn to command your dog, reinforce and use high-tech equipment for advanced, reliable behaviors and offleash control. I've created an easy handling system so you'll remain confidently in charge, even when your dog doesn't want to listen. I also give you insight to your dog's temperament so you can understand your bond in its' own special way.
    I have solutions for even the most stubborn of dogs!
