We offer gentle, friendly training for dogs of all ages.
Our methods are based in the science of positive reinforcement / reward based training, using treats as rewards. We do not use or recommend prong or shock collars (aka “e-collars”). Our training is force free, pain free, and fear free for you and your dog.
We can help with good manners training, and solving behavior problems of all kinds — from the merely frustrating (leash-pulling, jumping) to the distressing (aggression, fear) – in your home or virtually.
We specialize in separation anxiety training.
COVID-19 Update: Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, we ask that everyone in your household wear a mask during your appointment. Bob will also wear a mask.
How we can help
Life is SO difficult when dogs are scared to be alone. Our state of the art “alone-time” training gently teaches them to relax while you’re away.
From house training to confinement to polite mouth manners, we can help puppies start on the "right paw” as soon as they come home.
From aggression to destruction to compulsive behavior, we can help using gentle, scientifically proven methods.
A well behaved dog is a joy to live with. Our reward-based training helps dogs become cheerful, cooperative members of the family.

“I started Pawsitive Transformations to help people solve dog behavior problems effectively — and positively. I’m convinced the best training begins with kindness and respect for both dogs and people. I look forward to helping bring out the best in your best friend.”
