    SmartyPaws trainers are some of the best in the industry. All our trainers have years of experience with dogs of all breeds. They are members of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and are active competitors in dog sports, such as Competition Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Rally to name a few. We have trainers that have studied dog nutrition and diet. All of the trainers go to continuing education courses and seminars in dog training and different dog sports. They spend their own time and money improving their training skills and education of the latest and best techniques in positive reinforement training. They do volunteer work with many rescues and shelters in the area.Their first priority is the safety and well being of the dogs in their care. In addition to the basic manners that all dogs should know, the trainers are active participants in the mental enrichment of the dogs in both the class setting and in our Boot Camp  and Doggie Day Care program.

    The trainers are friendly and make classes fun to attend for both dogs and owners. Our training philosophy is; If the owner is relaxed and having fun in training class, their dogs will be relaxed and will have fun learning with positive reinforcement.

    We have an open door policy that anyone can come into SmartyPaws and watch one of our classes to see if our style will fit with theirs.
