Day Training

Modern Training

Old fashioned training attempts to teach skills, such as ‘Sit,’ by physically placing a pet into position via pushing a pet’s bottom down. Devices such as choke, prong or electric shock collars (e-collars) were even used. Modern, positive, reward methods eliminate aversive tactics and pain. Today, educated trainers use science-based learning theory to encourage your pet to use his brain to truly learn the way he naturally does, not just comply. We understand your pet’s perspective and deliver training your pet can grasp instantly. Don’t be fooled. The same methods are most effective for extreme problem behaviors such as aggression.

 TESTIMONIALS FROM HAPPY CUSTOMERS

Don’t just take it from us, see what our customers have to say!

“I would highly recommend SouthPaw. Our Rottweiler puppy had issues with resource guarding and going to the vet. C.C. helped us understand what goes through a puppy’s mind. If it were not for her very helpful advice and time spent with us, I think Ben would not be with us now.”

Craig Miller

Gambrills, MD

“I take referrals very seriously. My clients deserve the best and I refuse to subject them to subpar services. I am more than confident in SouthPaw. I have referred many clients and each one has been very pleased with not only the outcome of the training but also with SouthPaw’s professional nature.”

Scott K. Andersen

DVM

“I wanted to personally thank SouthPaw! Ben has certainly come a long way and we now know how to deal with him. He has been neutered and is making social visits to the vet. Huge improvement! SouthPaw really did help us out more than they know. They really are great at what they do.”
