FOR PAWS AND NOSES IS COMMITTED TO HELPING FAMILIES AND THEIR DOGS.
Our training is based on the science of behavior analysis. Modern training methods using positive reinforcement to empower you and your dog. We offer private sessions in the comfort of your own home. Private sessions are a great way to train and work on the behaviors that best fit you and your dog. We focus on manners training, behavior modification, and the sport of K9 Nose Work®.
For dogs of any age, even with a few grey hairs, we focus on sit, down, loose leash walking, stay, attention, coming when called, and many other behaviors. We also offer services for you and your puppy such as mouthing, potty training, polite greetings, the importance of socialization, and other puppy needs. Katie is also an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and can prepare you and your dog to take the Canine Good Citizen evaluation.
We each have concerns at different moments in our life and so do our dogs. Whether the concerns are with other humans, other dogs, or just being fearful in new environments, at For Paws And Noses we use applied behavior analysis when addressing these concerns. We focus on positive reinforcement training, prevention and management, and setting the dog up for success by going at their pace. We teach and reinforce the desired behaviors, create positive associations, and grow the communication between you and your companion.
K9 NOSE WORK®
An amazing dog sport open to dogs of all ages, breeds, and sizes. It builds on a dog’s natural scenting ability; did you know a dog has up to 300 million scent receptors in their nose, while we humans have only six million? We use what comes naturally for the dog, and begin with searching for food or a toy, and eventually introducing special target odors to the search. This is excellent mental exercise which is so important for our companions. K9 Nose Work® builds confidence and is a great way to have fun with your dog. Katie is a Certified Nose Work Instructor.
