But why does it feel like such a struggle!? When you walk in the door after a long day or hang out with your puppy you end up feeling like:
"I didn't realize that the training would up the level of bonding we would have with our dog and enrich the relationship so much, and that's what we got from Get Pawsitive."
"The relax on the Magic Mat method is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me on earth. When things get chaotic around Sassy, she will regularly just lay down at my feet and wait. Her focus is on me, she’s mellow and she handles it."
"This course is so easy to fit into a busy schedule. Sarah is an excellent coach who really takes the time to understand and explain where you may need to make some changes."
I created the online Pawsitive Puppy Training Academy when I realized that so many new puppy owners were struggling with the nipping, potty accidents and puppies just not listening. These puppy owners would try to look for answers in their favorite dog magazines, youtube or ask for feedback in their local Facebook dog training 101 groups, but they weren’t really getting the help they needed in an organized roadmap. And I’ve studied this problem for over 17 years and have found the solution! Here’s how using this service has positively impacted my own life.
As a child I tried to save as many animals as possible. I'd bring kittens home and beg my parents to let me keep them (they always said yes). In 2001 I found myself jobless and wanted to give back to the animal community through volunteering a the local shelter. It was there where my eyes were opened to the power of allowing your dog to play an equal role in training through safe, force-free and humane methods.
Years later I now mentor and coach volunteers to work with shelter dogs. I’ve taught 1000s of puppies and owners how to create a happy, loving household with their dog. I've earned and maintain several professional certifications which are highly regarded in the dog training world. (KPA-CTP & CPDT) I also train other species like cats, chickens, pigs, horses and goats using these same methods so I know that if it can work for them, it can work for your puppy!

I was overwhelmed as a new puppy owner because I did not know what to do with the dog. I had no idea where to start.....working with Get Pawsitive gave me tools to accomplish the goals I had for my dog. It's fun to train using positive reinforcement because I see quick learning. The dog responds quickly and I can see we are making progress quickly.

With quick bites of training at your fingertips you can pick and choose what and when you want to work on. Sessions can be 5-10 minutes just a few times per day.

I love the mantra: 100% personal responsibility, 100% of the time. If you own a puppy, training is crucial during their early development stages. You can't afford NOT to spend the necessary time learning how to train your puppy PROPERLY. If you feel like you’re too busy, that’s an exact indicator as to why you need this program right now. Your growing puppy doesn't have much time until naughty behaviors build. The program is specifically designed to help you do that as QUICKLY as possible for your puppy and with a proper plan. Time is not on your side. For puppies, training should begin yesterday.
Getting a new puppy is a big decision. Investing in your new puppy's training (and yours!) is a big deal and also a big step forward in your commitment to be the best pet parent for your puppy possible. The cost of fixing a problem later behaviorally, however, is far more expensive than prevention of the unwanted behavior from occurring in the first place. I understand it can feel a bit scary, which is why we do offer a four month installment plan so you can start for just $97 today!
Several of my students come up with creative ways to make the money needed to invest in this training program, including using some of your tax refund, re-allocating monies from your savings or a personal budget, some have even told me they've asked a family member to sponsor their puppy!
The great thing is that the return on investment for a well-behaved puppy and a long-lasting relationship built on trust and positive training is PRICELESS.
Every dog is different and "being trained" is determined by the definition of your own training goals. There are never guarantees with behavior, but what drives faster results over the course of the six week program together is committing to daily, positive training sessions to teach your puppy what you do want while preventing and managing unwanted behaviors. If done this way, by the end of this program your puppy should have the beginning foundations built so that you can move onto your next set of goals. I give you the roadmap, training is your responsibility. Your puppy won't train himself.
There is no guarantee with behavior however, if you believe that we didn't deliver on our promises or provide the value you expected we will provide a full refund within the first 30 days, no strings attached.

Prior to starting the Pawsitive Puppy Academy with Get Pawsitive, Ragnar exhibited the typical puppy energy- bolting out of his crate, jumping on visitors, pulling on his leash, etc. This training helped me see how I could change the way I communicate with him by keeping in mind what I want him to do. Now he's awesome with waiting for the command before leaving his crate, his jumping has improved and so has walking together! I got more for my money with this course because I actually learned how to implement the training techniques.
I enjoyed having the exercises available to print out and have in my hand. Being able to train module by module in small spurts, on my own time, worked for us since Apollo has a short attention span.
Before the program, I had no idea the rewarding what I like technique vs reprimanding also works on 4-legged babies! This program is so easy to fit into a busy schedule and with lots of practice and patience (and a clicker!) your puppies are going to be so much better behaved! I love that the tools given, like the Magic Mat method, are easily adaptable for any situation. Sarah is an excellent coach who really takes the time to understand and explain where you might need to make some changes.
Today and get started having that well-behaved puppy you always dreamed of and deserve!
