About Best Paw Forward Training

Training

Best Paw Forward offers pet dog training with private lessons in your home, private lessons in my facility, and group classes.  

Lisa has been a dog trainer fo more thanr 25 years, and a dog behaviorist for 10 years.  She has had many successes helping people and dogs learn to be more relaxed and happy, as well as helping dogs and owners learn the basics of obedience.

Group classes

Group classes are an excellent way to work on focus and socialization with your dogs.

We learn not only about sit/come/down/stay/heel, but we also practice focusing exercises.

Group classes are an excellent place to make sure you possess all the tools to make sure your dog has everything he or she needs to be a great member of your family and society.

Group classes are suitable for dogs who have completed their full series of vaccinations (all dogs must be fully vaccinated) and are NON-AGGRESSIVE.

(any dog found to be aggressive in class will be removed from the class environment and asked to attend private lessons to work on their aggressiveness)

I strive fully to make sure that all dogs are safe and comfortable in the class environment.

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE IF YOUR DOG IS AGGRESSIVE, PLEASE CONTATCT US TO DO AN EVALUATION TO ASSURE YOUR DOG IS PLACED IN THE PROPER ENVIRONMENT FOR THEIR TEMPERMENT.  

I love all dogs an people, and only want them to succeed!!

Private lessons

Private lessons are for people and dogs who cannot attend group classes.

Pups who are too young to have completed their full round of vaccinations are great candidates for private lessons, as we can protect them from diseases.

Private lessons for puppies include: crate training, biting, jumping, house training, calming and preventing separation anxiety.

Private lessons are also excellent for those who have time constraints that prevent them attending a group class, or for those with disabilities.
