Dog Training

Fun Scent Detection Class (Nose Work)

All dogs have far better scenting ability than we do - 10,000 to 1,000,000 times better! Sign up for Nose Work and amaze your friends with your dog's ability to use his nose to sniff and find things!

​​I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), an AKC Canine Good Citizen and AKC Trick Dog Evaluator, a fully approved AKC Scent Work judge, and a lead judge with Performance Scent Dogs. ​​​I'm passionate about dogs and education and offer the best possible training based on the most recent research in dog cognition.

 

Paws 4 Fun, LLC offers full-service, professional dog training in South Florida, using, for the most part, positive reinforcement, and the least invasive, minimally aversive (LIMA) methods when called for. I am experienced with many breeds, and can handle a multitude of training issues including housebreaking and puppy training, house manners, obedience, scent training, rally obedience, tricks and more, in either private lessons or group classes. Training animals is a rewarding job, and I take it very seriously.

 

At Paws 4 Fun, I will provide high-standard, successful training for your dog, all done with skill and love. For more information, a consultation, or an appointment, call today!
