Four Paws Dog Training in Action

Tell us your experiences and changes you'd like to accomplish

Bringing a new dog into your home can be a challenging undertaking. Whether a puppy or older rescue needs to get used to his new surroundings, a new dog is being introduced to one or more existing pets or an established dog or group of dogs suddenly show changes in behavior.

All of the scenarios described above can create significant disruptions to your daily routine, but don’t despair, you’ve come to the right place.

Birgit, resident dog trainer at Four Paws Dog Training is at your side to overcome those hurdles, annoyances and challenges. Dealing with everyday obedience problems, you as a new or seasoned dog owner may face, is her specialty. Drawing from 30+ years of experience working with dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes. she will be your rock when it’s time to overcome those pesky little situations that pose a challenge to your peace and quiet.

She will be on your side as your personal mentor to provide you with the right tools and techniques, to answer all of your questions about puppy/dog training, pet care, housebreaking, crate training, mouthing, biting, chewing, fence charging, people jumping and most socialization problems.

Positive Reinforcement

Your and your dogs experience in training should always be positive.

That’s why Birgit strongly believes in Positive Reinforcement Training Techniques.

Although patience is the key, you and your dog will gain a real sense of accomplishment once you begin the training, after just a few hours of work with your trainer and proper in-home follow-up, you should notice positive improvement in your dogs attitude and awareness.

Equals Positive Experiences

A Positive Reward based Training Method means that you will learn to verbally reward all positive behavior FOLLOWED BY FOOD or TOY/ PLAY REINFORCEMENT.

A dog should never be physically punished when he is trying to learn and/or understand what it is you want him to do.

Birgit sees it as her main job as the trainer to teach you the proper techniques to help your dog understand what you want him to do and through the process foster a successful human / dog relationship.
