“You taught me how to train Gee Whiz by giving us feedback and good ideas. Really good class! Nice there were 2 trainers. Also like small class size.” -Kathy B. and her Standard Poodle Gee Whiz, reviewing their Beginning Focus & Control class with Lauren and Carrie D.
“I absolutely loved the Focus & Control class with Carrie and Lauren. The curriculum was great, Carrie and Lauren were great instructors and the training space suited the class. I felt like the class gave me a motivation to actually work with my dog outside of class. I didn’t feel overwhelmed by the homework or the pace. I would/have highly recommended this class, Paws Abilities, and these instructors since my first class. You guys are rocking it!” -Megan J. and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Oslund, reviewing their Beginning Focus & Control class with Carrie D. and Lauren
“Lauren was awesome and I learned some new ways of doing things. Odin and I had a great time. You guys rock! I wish I had the time and money to take more classes. I learn so much!” -Margit L. and her Bernese Mountain Dog Odin, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Lauren
“Carrie and Lauren were very willing to ‘meet each dog/handler where they were’ in their training. I love the small class sizes and flexibility of the trainers. Having a ‘special needs’ dog, the trainers were very respectful with my request for my dog and the direction of her training. It is reassuring to be able to brainstorm different methods of training with the end goal of helping her to increase her comfort level and confidence with new people.” -Debbie S. and her Portuguese Water Dog Ursula, reviewing their Beginning Focus & Control class with Carrie D. and Lauren
“Lauren was awesome and always had great suggestions & multiple methods of solving all of our challenges. I loved having a handout to reference what we went over in class and what to work on at home in between. Otherwise I definitely would’ve forgotten some of the great information I got. LOTS of information in each class – more than I expected! Now that class is over, we still have plenty of things to work on. I feel like we’ve been taught HOW to train in a way that’s adaptable to all situations, rather than just going over the basics of sit, stay, come, etc.” -Molly F. and her Jack Russell Terrier Jax, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Lauren
“Lauren did a great job answering all questions and was very patient with everyone. She was very knowledgeable and had multiple ways of dealing with an issue depending on the type of dog.” -Brady A. and his Vizsla Reka, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Lauren
“This was a very positive class! I learned so much and it was easy to apply the training techniques! Plus it was a super fun class! I love this school! The positive techniques inspire me to want to teach my dog to be the way I want him to be. It was so easy to learn simple techniques to teach my dog to do the basic commands (sit, stay, down, come, leave it, loose leash walking, magic mat, and sit before going out the door). Thanks so much for helping me to be a good trainer to my pup so he has a good start in life!” -Kari A. and her Miniature Schnauzer Rocco, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Lauren
