Finding a Dog Trainer
Searching for a dog trainer can be exhausting and confusing. There are so many different techniques and beliefs to choose from. Go watch a class before choosing a dog trainer. Watch the dogs in the class, not the people. Are the dogs happy to be there and enjoy the training process? If so, those dogs will succeed.
Loving Paws, LLC is dedicated to enriching and enhancing the relationship between people and their dogs. Our compassionate staff is committed to:
Coaching people on how to teach their dogs the desired behaviors using positive reinforcement methods and to stop inappropriate behavior in a pleasant way.
Getting the dog’s behavior on a voluntary basis, with no force or pain, so that the desired behaviors become a habit and are self-reinforcing.
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.
Loving Paws is happy to provide Private Dog Training, Puppy and Adult Training Classes along with many other fun events and classes to choose from. We service the Southeastern Wisconsin and Northeastern Illinois area including: Kenosha, Racine, Sturtevant, Union Grove, Pleasant Prairie, Burlington, Twin Lakes, Lake Geneva, Waukegan, Zion, Beach Park, Antioch, Winthrop Harbor, and Gurnee.
