We loved our experience at Paws4Training! When we started our classes, our puppy was extremely shy and wouldn’t even come out from under our seats. By the 3rd or 4th class, her confidence skyrocketed and she was running around and playing with the rest of the dogs! You can tell that Susan really does care about each and every dog that comes through her classes. Would recommend to anyone with a new puppy!
Paws4Training has helped our pup, Cody, through so many stages of his adolescence. We have taken the Puppy Kindergarten, Middle School, and Growly Dog classes with Susan and have also utilized her for a private training session. She is so knowledgable and always has the most creative tips and tricks to help train. Her commitment to positive reinforcement training is something we were looking for in dog classes and she delivered! We couldn’t be happier with our experiences!
We loved puppy kindergarten with Susan. She is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. I highly recommend working with Susan at Paws4Training. Our puppy loved it and she learned a lot.
I brought my puppy here for playgroup a couple times. The trainer was great! She had a lot of energy, ensured to separate pups based on size, and let owners use our discretion on our pups. It was a very welcoming and warm environment. I would definitely recommend playgroup! I did not participate in the training classes, so can’t speak to that.
“We took both the puppy school and the middle school classes – Susan was patient, knowledgeable and caring in her guidance with our new puppy. Our time with her was invaluable and we feel better equipped to handle the challenges each day brings.”
