Obedience Boarding School: 
A Complete Dog Education

Your dog lives inside my home, like a family member, for a complete education that improves "the whole dog" with temperament balancing, socialization skills, 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.
    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

    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 food 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'll give you insight to your dog's temperament so you can understand and reach your dog at his level and remain bonded. I even have solutions for the most stubborn of dogs!
