About Us

 Our Company

Pawsitive Center practices Positive Reinforcement and Negative Punishment training, this method focuses on teaching and rewarding correct behavior rather than punishing bad behavior.

Dog training should be about understanding and trust.  We use treats, toys and praise (whatever your dog finds as a valuable reward) to make training a fun and successful experience.

We offer private training sessions, because we know with hectic schedules it can be difficult to find time to load up your dog and drive to a group class so we come to you. Private lessons offer one on one training in the dog’s environment.
