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.
Due to COVID-19, our in-person training is suspended for the time being. The good news is, we can help with virtually anything … virtually! Virtual training has been part of canine professionals’ repertoire for many years with excellent results, and the best part is, we can meet with clients from any location using simple virtual technology! All you need is a computer with a webcam, a smartphone, or tablet, and an online connection – and you can meet with us to resolve your training and behavior issues.

“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.”
– Bob Ryder
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!

“Had a really great online training session with Bob! The pups are amazing, but challenging. During this time of distancing, he was willing to provide an online option for us to discuss how to train our two girls! Bob is very friendly, VERY knowledgeable – I recommend him to anyone looking for pet training!”
– Brynn Girdler, Heyworth, IL
We can’t say enough! Bob was gentle, knowledgeable and generous. We felt comfortable right away. It is amazing what he got done over Zoom. 5 Stars!
