Are you too busy to train your dog? Or are you going on vacation and want to return home to a well mannered dog? You can leave your dog with us and have us train him/her for you. Before the dog goes home you come to us to get YOUR instructions and get reacquainted with your dog and his newly acquired skills at no additional charge.
We have Puppy Preschool (for puppies 10-18 weeks), Puppy Kindergarten (for puppies older than 18 weeks but under a year old) and Adolescent/Adult dog classes as well.
Due to puppies' vaccination schedules our 6 week Puppy Preschool classes are held at indoor, sanitary facilities, 1 hour per week for 6 weeks.
It is imperative that you help your puppy build a proper foundation before they are 5 months old. This is a critical period in your puppy's development.

Reactive Rover Classes
Does Your Dog Bark & Lunge at Other Dogs on Leash?
Frustrated, Embarrassed, Feel Like Giving Up?
Reactive Rover Classes are designed to help owners with reactive dogs
learn better management and handling skills!
'Reactive Rovers' are dogs that react negatively to other dogs and/or people exhibiting behaviors such as growling, barking, lunging, shaking, or shutting down in the presence of such stimuli.
The course is also intended to help re-condition the dogs response to such stimuli to help create a positive association through scientifically-proven methods of behavior modification. Because of the sensitive nature of this course, the dogs must be evaluated prior to enrollment and must strictly adhere to all required safety protocol.
Our Classes are in a controlled environment that will give you the tools you need to decrease stress for both YOU and YOUR Dog.
This course is limited to 5 dogs and homework will be handed out at each class and students are encouraged to keep in contact with the trainers outside of class.
Ma & Paw Kennel's training methods and philosophy is based on learning theory -- classical conditioning and operant conditioning.
