Congratulations to our Graduates
Tricia and Katelyn are great trainers and teachers. We adopted our dog when he was 3 years and just rescued. He has been very nice at home but had a barking issue to other dogs as he might be frightened, and we had struggled to deal with it. Tricia and Katelyn taught us basic training skills and very helpful advises by demonstrating those skills to our dog. We learned how to avoid such unwanted situations by making him paying attention to us. Although our dog still wants to bark as it is difficult to change his personality itself, now we feel more comfortable and confident about walking outside with him.
|We love the easy, step by step approach of training 20 Paws offered. Our Australian Shepperd loves coming to class. In only a few weeks, we really noticed how more obedient he became.|
Trish and Katelyn teach a wonderful class. It was a safe, friendly and inclusive environment for all dogs and people! So happy I was able to attend. Their tips and guidance really helped my dog and I communicate better. Can’t wait to take another class!
The Bakers at 20 Paws have been absolutely wonderful helping us to train our dog, Hope. With the goal of having our dog trained and eventually certified to become a facility therapy dog, we started with Level 1 virtual classes in May, recently graduated from Level 3 and will be starting Animal Assisted Therapy dog classes in January! We are so excited. They have been careful and sensitive during this COVID 19 pandemic, and we are so grateful to have them assisting us! Trish and Kaitlyn are so patient with our little dog, and help us to trouble shoot any difficulties that we have with training Hope! I could have never taken on this venture without their support and guidance!
Senor loved the classes!
My husband and I got our first puppy together earlier this year. He is a Pomeranian and neither one of us had ever owned a Pom before. I researched a few places and when I found 20 Paws it was an instant connection. All of my questions were answered on the first phone call and I was very impressed with the time I was given and how much knowledge I received in the phone call alone. My husband and I drive 30 minutes to our puppy classes because of how much we believe in 20 Paws. We have learned so much through the training and our so proud of our puppy and ourselves. We have signed our puppy up for the next classes and will continue to do our work with our puppy through them. We cannot thank them enough for the time and efforts they have put into us and our puppy. We are so lucky to have found them!
Trish is a world class trainer and is beyond knowledgeable with all training issues. My dog responded so well to her style, caring and compassion. I will take every class she teaches.
I love the small class size and the amount of attention paid to each dog/human team. Tricia is extremely compassionate and understands dog psychology, and human psychology too! The support is wonderful, and gave me time and space to work with my dog in a positive and productive way.
The class that Tricia has is awesome she very good.
She runs a nice class and Mazie loves it I would recommend the class to anyone. Katelyn is her daughter and also awesome. They are very good at what they do.
So grateful for this class! It helped us a lot with training our puppy.
