     Over 80% of the dogs in shelters have been given up due to basic training issues. It's easy to feel overwhelmed when you have a dog who is constantly jumping, nipping, barking, pulling on the leash, and seems to have selective hearing. Shari can help you take back your control and help you teach your dog what you expect of them in every social situation.

      At The PAWS Training Group, our mission is to teach pet parents leadership skills and dog training techniques that are sensitive to both human and canine needs. Dog training doesn’t really happen during scheduled training sessions. Learning actually happens when you integrate it into your everyday routines. Humans that learn to apply our techniques to their everyday lives, and situations, experience tremendous success. Let PAWS teach you how to form a solid relationship with your dog that is built on communication skills, mutual respect, and trust!

Our Mission Statement

     PAWS prides ourselves on using positive reinforcement, coupled with perfect timing, communication, and the right kind of motivators. We deliver the precise balance of rewards versus correction in a way that will never be harsh or physically harmful to your dog. We teach you how to play the necessary "mind games" to guide your dog through their learning process. Shari is passionate about what she does and it shows through her enthusiasm and her ability to get results. PAWS wants to set you up for success!
