Humans make mistakes all the time, having the best intentions, but often not realizing where they went wrong, and it is for this reason that we ask complete honesty from you as it is very important when it comes to your dog’s history. This enables us to help you and your dog.
We are not here to judge, but to change the lives of dogs and their owners, by helping to educate, guide and support.

When considering inboard training there's always a lot of questions going through one's mind and we'll be answering the most frequently asked one right here to give you a bit more peace of mind.
Q: Will my dog feel abandoned and forget me?
A: The first day, some of the students feel a bit unsure about the new environments and people, but this usually only lasts a day or two. We spend extra time with dogs that struggle to adapt and have no problem bringing them into our home if needed. We do build a strong bond with each individual, but they know their parents and definitely remember their family, no matter how much they love us we can never replace their people.
Q: Will I be able to visit my dog during his/her stay at Pawsitive?
A: Yes, owners are more than welcome to visit (just schedule a visit with your trainer) or even video call in instances where visits are not possible. We also keep you informed daily, so you are not completely cut off from your dog.
Q: Will my dog listen to me when he/she is taught commands by someone else?
A: Yes, keep in mind there is a transition period when your dog comes home, and they might try to see if old habits are still allowed but we give you all the tools and information (homework) you need to continue educating your dog while building your relationship in the process. It’s very important to understand our programs are not a quick fix and you will have to continue the work afterwards, but it is most definitely the first steps in laying a good foundation for your dog.
Q: Will my dog be hurt (hit, shocked etc.) while he is with you?
A: No! We believe that a dog should work willingly and for this reason we love them for the induvial they are and adapt our ways of working with each one.
