Pawsitivity Indeed

Providing pet and service dog training consumes much of my life these days. I engage in both short and long term relationships with people in helping them learn how to guide their dog(s) to be well mannered and have rewarding and enriching relationships.

Welcome to

It’s been years in the making. The multiple disparate steps from idea to now. See a need for a multiple function, well made, durable working dog no-pull harness and vest combo to aid in training service dog pups in your care.  Can’t find it doing the usual searches.

Video Trailers — Dog Training Fall 2013

I’ve been immersed in English Springer Spaniel Service Dog Training fun these past many months and couldn’t be prouder of the trio — Blazer, Ella and Beau.

Bruin’s Poem – A Board and Train Journey

Bruin is winding down his first (and possibly only) Three Day Board and Train. With respect to developing better leash manners, off leash (supervised) reliability out in the planet and within the home, better manners with his own kind and people, hats off to Bean. My 9 1/2 year old English Springer Spaniel is an […]
