We believe that using force and pain-based methods diminishes the relationship between the owner and their dog, and teaches the dog that the owner can be unpredictable and dangerous. As humans, we tend to focus on what our dogs do wrong, and spend little time focusing on all the things our dogs do right. Our classes are based on reinforcing the correct behaviors while stopping and redirecting the incorrect behaviors.

We here at Loving Paws work hard to encourage people to view their dogs as the magnificent animals that they truly are.
