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.

Senor loved the classes!
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 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.
So grateful for this class! It helped us a lot with training our puppy.
|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.|
Tricia really understands dogs, how to train them and how to love them. She was very helpful in giving us tips and tricks to have a well behaved pet.
Looking forward to the next training session for Caleb , who loves coming to class 🙂
|Katelyn was an excellent teacher. Her explanations and demonstrations were clear and she broke down the behaviors in easy to follow steps. We enjoyed the walking bootcamp class very much|
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.
|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.|
