Three months ago, after another awkward “I swear he’s friendly - he just looks aggressive!” conversation over my anxious, barking dog, I decided enough was enough. My one-year-old husky rescue was no longer a puppy, and some of his habits were becoming personality traits. I had completed two rounds of group obedience training with him, but it just wasn’t working - in any new environment, nothing seemed to stick. I decided to seek better help. Enter: Bridget, Maureen, and the rest of the Pawsitive K9 staff. From the very beginning, they were my immediate support system. They saw my dog for the love bug that he really is, and helped him and me work through his flaws and anxieties. They set us up so by Day 1 we knew exactly what to expect, and every day I could actually see a difference. I chose the 10-day package, because I knew Bowie had a tendency to get comfortable in specific settings and had a hard time applying what he learned in new situations. I wanted him to have multiple o...

We had an absolutely incredible experience with Pawsitive K9 Behavior School! Our 6 month old puppy was attacked and so we were looking for a place that would help her learn to socialize with other dogs without fear as well as keep building on the foundations of basic commands. Our puppy progressed so well during the 6 full day training lessons. And the staff send you many videos of what's going on throughout the day so you can replicate the training at home! The staff are so incredibly kind and knowledgeable, and are able to troubleshoot any issues you're having with implementing the training at home. They truly love every dog that walks through their doors and I knew our puppy was 100% safe with them. Our puppy also absolutely LOVED going to training each time - so even though it was a lot of learning for her, she was having a wonderful time doing it! I would absolutely recommend Pawsitive K9 Behavior School!!!!!

If i could give Bridget and her amazing team a 10 star review, i would. When i explained my dogs behavior issues and stressed i didnt have transportation or access to immediate finances, she was understanding. She told me she does it for the dogs, and she does. My dog Max had a bite history, reactiveness, separation anxiety, and the list goes on. From day one Bridget worked with me with transportation and payment plans. She worked with my dog once a week as well as a weekly group class. Within 3 classes we could see change in his behavior and most of all, us learning how to guide him to make better decisions. The team would record all of the training sessions while he was at day camp. Not only training him but training us. While it is an investment, I can now say my dog comfortably greets on and off leash, plays well with puppies and is able to enjoy life with no anxiety. While i went out of town for the weekend, she would watch Max. He would get amazing exposure and daily interacti...
