Therapy Dog Specialists
At 20 Paws Dog Training, we take pride in helping owners to develop a strong, lasting relationship with their dogs through positive reinforcement education. Teaching the dogs the "rules" at this time of covid-19 quarantine can be challenging. We want to offer you solutions for taking advantage of the time you are home with your dogs.
Please consider joining us for a class!!!
Have you ever thought your dog just does SO MUCH sniffing there should be a class for that? Well, there is! Scent Work is a fun game based on professional detection work that is great for burning off energy, building up a dog’s confidence and much more! Scent work is something that builds a great relationship between you and your dog and even a short search can burn off as much energy as a sprint! There are no prerequisites necessary and easy to practice at home. No matter the size, age, ability of the dog they can all benefit from Scent Work! $160 – 6 Weeks of Classes.

Congratulations to our Graduates
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!
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!
Senor loved the classes!
So grateful for this class! It helped us a lot with training our puppy.
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!
Pancake has matured and developed so much through interaction with Tricia, Katelyn, Kathy and all the other dogs.
Looking forward to the next training session for Caleb , who loves coming to class 🙂
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.
This puppy/beginner class was great! Tricia and her daughter Katelyn are truly wonderful trainers and have set us up for years of success with our sweet pup, Achilles. Thanks so much!
|The class helped Bear increase his focus with introduction of a variety of distractors (other dogs and strangers) while using less treats and more complex tasks. The class also prepared Bear toward the Therapy evaluation class and and CGC test and some tasks from the Therapy CGC test.|
