What is the Goal of PAWS-itive Traits Dog Training?

Experience our dog training in LongmontJulie Reiff – Professional Dog Trainer and owner of PAWS-itive Traits Dog Training builds a positive relationship between you and your dog through dog training and behavior modification.

WOLF PACK THEORY: dogs come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but they are all derived originally from the wolf. Wolves (and dogs) are, by nature, pack animals that function as groups with a hierarchical structure. When you bring a dog into your home, it will naturally consider your family its new pack. “PAWS”-itive Traits will teach you how to communicate with your dog(s) that you are the leader of the pack!

Obedience training opens up lines of communication between you and your dog, therefore improving the relationship overall.

  • Private classes available in your home or at my location (Garden Acres Park in Longmont)
