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

Julie 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.

  • All breed obedience for adult dogs as well as puppies 8 weeks and up.
  • Private classes available in your home or at my location (Garden Acres Park in Longmont)
  • Behavior Modification – aggression issues, barking, separation anxiety, etc.
  • Puppy Training – including housebreaking, chewing, biting, and jumping on people.
  • Off leash training
  • Using positive reinforcement training
  • Boarding & Training also available at Whispering Pines Pet Resort! This is a particularly nice option as it allows your dog to brush up on the training skills or even work on more challenging issues while you are busy or on vacation. It’s helpful, convenient, and the extra stimulus is not only great for your dog’s brain, but they’ll love it too!
