DUE TO THE COVID-19 Safer at Home order, we are currently doing online classes until the order is lifted.  We are hoping to resume small group classes in June.  We have those classes listed on this website for registrations.

On Line Classes: The benefits of an online class are abundant. Puppies are like sponges for learning. If we don’t teach them the proper way to live in a humans world early in life, they will create bad habits that are harder to fix later.

For the dogs 6 months old and up, we need to stop the bad habits as soon as possible and teach them what you want them to do.  The more a habit is rehearsed, the stronger the habit becomes.

JOIN US IN OUR ONLINE CLASS AS WE WAIT FOR THE ALL CLEAR to hold classes together again.


Dogs are a gift to be treasured! 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.
