Pawfection dog Training

About us

When you are choosing a dog trainer, experience counts for everything,

Dogs are puzzles, each piece representing a different "need" all of which have to be present to provide the perfect picture of a well balanced dog in a happy family. Love, Leadership, Education, Nutrition, Exercise, Mental stimulation, and pack bonding are the uniquely shaped pieces that properly arranged give you that ideal image of dog ownership. We, at Pawfection, are uniquely qualified to guide you in shaping each of those puzzle parts to create your masterpiece! 

In the United States there is no central governing body for dog trainers and therefore no quality control, in short anyone can set themselves up as a dog trainer with little knowledge, no experience and a worthless diploma and these are the "trainers" who lack the ability to shape the pieces with the skill and precision needed.

Look at the "about us" pages of the other trainers out there and you will be shocked to see what little experience they actually have! Watching every episode of the dog whisperer, reading a book or training their own dogs with the help of you tube really doesn't cut it.

The opportunities for so called trainers to “milk” your bank account with numerous training sessions are plenty and do you really know who you are letting into your home with you? Read the internet bios, but read beyond “I have always loved dogs” and “Graduate of the John DOA school for dog trainers in upstate Barkaloopy” Schools for dog trainers aren’t regulated either so this is often the blind leading the incompetent.

When it comes to dog training beware those second-rate amateurs giving third rate service. A “life- long love of dogs” or some belief of a “natural ability” or “gift” with dogs does not make people dog trainers just as a love of driving doesn’t qualify you as a mechanic. Would you let someone who has always changed light bulbs rewire your house? Don’t trust the under qualified & inexperienced with your furry family member because the mistakes they make now will be paid for by you for the next 10 years in money, time and emotional heartache.

Call us today, trust our experience and ability and enjoy the rest of your dog’s life with you.
