We offer training for dogs of all ages
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). Our methods are based in the science of positive reinforcement / reward based training, and always are gentle – force free, pain free, and fear free for you and your dog.
How we can help you
Private Dog and Puppy Training
Our good manners training will help your dog or puppy become a well behaved member of the family.
Hope for Behavior Problems
From aggression to destructive behavior, we can help using effective, scientifically proven methods.

“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 meeting you, and helping bring out the best in your best friend.

“Our family would highly recommend Bob for help with your puppy/dog. Bob was wonderful at teaching us how to understand what our puppy was thinking as we were interacting with him. He helped us to learn the elusive ‘how do I get him to behave?’ by showing us how our actions are interpreted by our 4-legged friend. Another major plus of Bob is his philosophy in regards to teaching dogs. Bob wants the dogs to be happy above all else. His methods allow the dog to respond and show good manners while being excited to do exactly as we are asking. It doesn’t get much better than that! Thanks again, Bob.

Our family is beyond grateful for Bob and the expertise he shared as we welcomed our new puppy, Oliver (with a Puppy 101 consultation, and a package of 5 follow-up sessions). Although we attended all of our sessions remotely, we could still sense Bob’s warm, friendly nature. Bob is a superb teacher, and he patiently listened to our many questions and made sure the whole family was invested in Oliver’s success. He paid close attention to our specific needs and concerns. After each session, he emailed us a thorough summary of his suggestions with links to products and resources he had recommended. Bob rocks!
