Pawsitive Dog Training
Behavior that’s rewarded is repeated. Get the results you want using positive reinforcement. Click below to learn more about how we can help!
We use only science-based training methods
and follow LIMA guidelines as well as the Humane Hierarchy.
We don't believe in using force, fear or pain when training dogs, which can actually have adverse side effects and is just a "quick fix" without identifying the underlying cause for behavior. Traci is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Certified Behavior Consultant through CCPDT, who makes it a regular practice of obtaining continuing education from all of the leading professionals in her field. Her passion is working with dogs who are shy/fearful, dogs who exhibit reactive/aggressive behaviors, as well as setting puppies up for success now rather than having to fix problem behaviors later.
